Very nice! I wonder if the black LX might have a gold nib...?

Also, thanks for your photo, Anthony - nice pairing!

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

Lovely Turquoise! I do hope Lamy will promote it more and make it available to more sellers than the Pink Scala, which I haven't seen promoted besides this subforum.
Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

Hi BBS,

That's what I'm wondering, too? "LX" is a new designation for the Studio.

You're welcome... and thank you. :)

Please pray the Rosary daily. Thank You, St. Jude, for favors granted. :)

Grab life with both arms and give it a bear hug every day! :D

Definitely not.
The lamy designation is Z52. They're a steel nib with a kind of Teflon coating

I am going to have to confess that while the shiny sections on my Studios didn't bother me too much, eventually I realized I was unconsciously gripping them harder, which is a big no no for me, and using them less and less... So I followed some instructions I found on FPN of sandpapering down with different grits, and lo! It doesn't destroy the pen's look and is now more comfortable to hold.

I will spare you my first attempt as I sandpapered too much, exposing a golden layer, so a light hand is required, and it helps to remove the section ring since its lip is what holds the cap. The upshot is I would have no problem getting more Studios in those newer colours.
