    play/wiggle on CP1 clip normal?

    My Lamy CP1's clip has some play: it can be pushed side-to-side (1-2mm) like a pendulum, quite easily, and the entire clip can be slid up-and-down (about 1mm), while the rest of the cap remains in place. Do other users of the CP1 experience this behavior, or is this a known issue? I've looked for mentions of this on the web and in youtube reviews but to no avail. Here is a photo that hopefully illustrates what I mean: This quirk doesn't stop me from absolutely loving and enjoy writing with this pen, though. I also rarely clip pens to things. It's just... ee

    CP1 black finish question

    Hi everyone, This is the first midle priced pen I 've bought when I was stil at school (6-7 years ago) to replace my Parker Jotter Steel. I wanted a pen that whould be a good everyday writer and when I saw this slim matte black pen with modern look I had to get it. After 3-4 months of continuous use, the matte finish has disappeared, giving it's place to a shiny finish which started picking up some scratches. I didn't really minded back then, but as the years have pasted, and I watched some reviews on youtube, I haven't see anyone that had the same problem with me. So I wonder, -

    Lamy cp1, a superb journal companion

    From the album: European pens

    This is one of my two favourite Lamy pen models (hint: the other one is not a Lamy 2000), and the one that made me a fan of the brand, even though I had a few Safari and Logo pens before this and wasn't impressed by them. My ‘super pencil’ that writes in fountain pen ink. It's one of only a few pens that I wouldn't think twice writing with the cap posted; the cap clicks onto the end finial securely, and fit flush so that there is no edge to rest or rub against the skin between thumb and index finger uncomfortably. The pen is also perfectly usable for me without posting the cap.

    Cp1 Caps Are Good!

    I just pulled out my Deutsche Telekom CP1 that has been sitting in a draw since March. It was inked with an old Lamy cartridge filled with Diamine Bilberry. Expecting it to contain nothing but purple ink dust by now I tried writing with it. It worked the first time - not even a hard start nor shake nor moistening of the nib was required. It wrote as if it were freshly filled. I checked the cartridge - about 5-10% ink evaporation in 7 months. Now that is a cap seal!

    Lamy Cp 1?

    I am thinking about trying out the black Lamy cp 1. I don't see much information about it on FPN and was curious if anyone here has any experience with this pen they'd be willing to share. RB
  8. I don't know if Lamy Dialog nibs can be swapped like a Safari or Imporium. If it can be done without having to send it to Germany, how do I do it? And is it the same kind of nib that is used in the CP1 platinum? Thanks!

    Lamy Cp 1Black - Modell 58

    Dear all, I have recently came across this thread: https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/155782-lamy-cp50-vs-cp1-black/. It caught my attention. Not that I particularly like the pen, but I like the differences between first generation and the pen that is still in production today. So I went to my “collection box” and found this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lamy_fp/albums/72157670817086128 And it made my day. I knew I had a cp1, but I believe that this pen is the first generation LAMY cp 1black - modell 58 with the original convertor J The 58 model is not on sale anymo

    Thoughts On The Lamy Cp1

    Hey all, I have been interested in the CP1 for some time now, but there aren't many reviews of it online and not much info as well. I was hoping if anyone owns it, they could provide some thoughts. I love its minimally minimal look and was thinking it could be a good pen to toss into my bag, go and not have to worry too much about it. Thanks!

    Looks Like A Cp1

    ... but it is thicker, 9.4 mm in diameter and it has a Safari feed and nib. The rest is identical, with this solid clip. The barrel and cap is gently brushed stainless. Time of production: 1981 - 83. I need to know because the inner cap has crumbled and I need a replacement. Thanks

    Cp1 Pencil Part?

    Hi All- I am in need of a .07mm pencil mechanism for my CP1 pencil. I looked around online, without much luck. I am hoping someone can point me in the direction of where I might be able to buy this part. I am in the US, so that would be preferable, if there is a source here. Thanks in advance!-
  13. Hey Guys, I am looking for a nice practical pen for everyday use, and prolonged writing sessions in an academic environment, after examining all my options Im torn between the CP1 and the TWSBI 580. I am considering a Fine nib by the way, which one should I opt for? Many Thanks.
  14. So I recently acquired this pen, the hope is to have the perfect 'every day' pen. It was a mess when I got it. Old dried out ink had effectively glued the cap on, but after much patients and lots of water I now have a nice clean pen. I currently carry a Lamy Al-Star in a bag for my larger notebook and a basic UniBall Roller in the pocket with my Feild Notes. Both write well but I carry the Roller because it's small, always at hand. The Al-Star just never feels like it disappears in the front pants pocket, thus relegated to the bag. I'll include this one mostly for the size comparison. The

I never fancied the Safari because of it’s weird triangular grip section but I like the modern design of the Lamys. If anyone’s thinking of buying one of these pens I thought I’d post some pics – I had trouble finding any good ones on the internet (apart from the stock photo they h
  16. INTRODUCTION Last weekend I was searching for a Lamy Pico to gift it.While I was waiting the seller searching a box to prepare my present, my eyes fell over the tray where stay other Lamy pens.Among these pens one of them catch my attention: a slim pen, dark and rough, with a little red dot in the cap. Typical 80's age like design, similar to CP1 model, but more prestige. Was the first time that I seen this pen, I'm a lover of Lamy pens so I know almost all models produced but this one was unknown. It wasn't cheap, but I wanted it! So, now, this pen is mine. At home I done a research and now I
  17. hi guys, reaching out for a little help. my wife recently got me a Lamy black CP1 because of its look and feel, however, i'm really not a fountain pen type. i have recently tried the Schmidt 6040 fine liner and loved it! wondering if anyone can shed some insight on how to get a part to replace the fountain pen tip so it can take a fine-liner, and if there might be a fine-liner similarly to the Schmidt 6040 (6040 is too long)? thank you!

    White Lamy Cp1

    Sorry for the bad cell phone photos, but has anyone ever seen a white CP1? I'm curious as to how rare/valuable it is. The photographs show it next to a matte black cp1, and a closeup of the Lamy brand on the cap. Anyone else ever see one? Anyone? Bueller? Pam
  19. I received the Lamy CP1 as a gift. I was after a "non-nickable" pen - one that wasn't likely to get stolen, and was cheap enough to replace if it was. A workhorse. As an added bonus, it looks more or less like a ballpoint, so the CP-1 was ideal for my purposes. Appearence (7/10) Its simple, black flush design does look very much like a ballpoint, but a nice one. The silver clip is in stark contrast with the flush body, and neither look particularly cheap. One of these pens is not like the others! The official product shot of the CP-1 shows the pen posted, hiding its only downfall o
