(The above picture is not mine, it is from The Ink Flow)
Details:
Bought the matte black (with M nib) pen at Paradise Pen for 75 dollars (which is the usual price for this pen),
comes with mini-catalog, warranty info, converter, and a blue ink cartridge. (and the pen, duh.)

First impression 5/5
When I got the box, I could tell that I was getting a great pen, in terms of preformance and looks.
The box is black, with the LAMY logo embossed in grey plastic in the center. All that is needed, no excess.

Looks 5/5
When I saw the pen, I first noticed the clip. In all my life I had never seen something so different, thumbs up.
Then there's the body of the piece, it's very simple, with nothing fancy or unneeded. Black with silver trim, and the silver lamy logo in small letters near the clip. Bravo.
Stainless steel nib with the words "M LAMY" ( the "M" meaning meduim nib)

Preformance 5/5 again.
The pen wrote a true deep blue line, best on Moleskine paper. It wrote wet, but not very wet, not very dry. Just perfect, with the slight scratching of the nib on the paper making it better than perfect.

Filling 5/5
Fills easily with a cartridge (which is what I used) and a converter (if you like converters, sorry, but I didn't test that, I don't use bottled.).
Just screw off the grip section (which is smooth, but very grippy.), and pop the cartridge out.

Overall: 5/5.
A better than perfect pen that would make anyone happy, and that will last for a very long time.
You won't regret your purchase.

The Lamy Studio was my first pen too! And it goes everywhere with me! Even more lovely now that it's been broken in smile.gif

I recently purchased a Studio, and agree with everything said above. I would add that this pen is extremely reliable. Even after several days of non-use, it writes as soon as you put pen to paper. Excellent pen for a rotation.
Regards,

Ray

Great pen and one of my favorites. Mine is the brushed stainless steel, I think, and I really appreciate the black rubberized grip. Opposite of the one in your picture.

I too recently purchased the brushed stainless steel version - it had a medium nib but I ordered an extra fine - all of £4! - and it was very simple to slip the medium nib out and pop the extra fine one in! It is a little scratchy but is wearing in I think - and yes, very reliable. A great "looker" too. I love the way the cap posts with a little "click" - which is the lip on the end of the barrel....

Excellent pen. I agree completely with what has been said.
"Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional and illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end"

Got my blue one in last week. I'm sure I would've enjoyed the nib it came with, but I had mine ground to a 1.1mm stub, and man is it smooth. It feels great in your hand, and looks very cool, too. It is already one of my favorite pens. I filled it w/ PR Black Magic Blue.
