    About Lamy Cp1 Nib

    Hi all. I recently purchased a Lamy CP1 in fine nib.Though silky smooth, I find the ink flow to be too wet. I tried 1) Lamy blue that came with the pen 2) Waterman mysterious blue 3) Pelikan 4001 royal blue but all seems to be too wet for a fine nib. I own a Lamy safari in medium nib. Though it gives true medium width, it is not too wet like the CP1 in fine nib. I'm pondering two options: 1) Whether changing the nib of CP1 to extra fine reduce the ink flow? 2) whether swapping the feed from an extra fine safari( i'm also not sure whether the safari feed suits the cp1)helps to reduce the ink flow? Suggestions from experts in the forum will be of great help.Thanks in advance.
  2. We just got these new paper clips that are shaped like a fountain pen nib! https://www.penchalet.com/pen_accessories/pen_parts_accessories/samson_graf_fountain_pen_nib_paper_clips.html
  3. Hi, There some fountain pens that I have noticed their nibs have a hole in the base of the nib, on the opposite end to the tines and the tipping material. See figure below: http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah12/phzervas/31F9046E-38A4-4ED3-9E99-E62F82501738_zps5pundsne.jpg Does anyone know what is the purpose of such hole? It does not appear to correspond to an similar size projection of the feed, at least not in my fountain pen. In such a case it could be used as an antirotational feature that holds the nib and feed together. Is it possible that such a hole works as an ink reservoir and makes the pen write any wetter? If so, would adding such a hole in other nibs, that do not possess such a feature, make them wetter too? Does such a hole prevent the ink in the nibs from drying out too fast? Any input wuld be highly appreciated. Thanks. Photios
