  1. Lamy have different 14K gold nibs 2000 series nibs Z 55 --> dialog 3, studio, cp1 and others Z 56 --> imporium palladium finish and rose gold Z 57 --> imporium black and black/gold finish I'm planning to upgrade the nib of my Lamy Logo with a gold springy Lamy nib (I want a springer nib without expend much money buying another pen, I like my Logo), but what are the differences between Z 55, Z 56 and Z 57? In pages like nibsmith or appelboom for example, Z 56 and Z 57 have a higher cost compared to Z 55. Of course! Z 56 and Z 57 are the Lamy imporium nibs and have some minimal differences in design (no breather hole)... But talking about only the writing perfomance (springiness and other aspects that affect writing experience), what is the differences? Anyone has tested and can compare those nibs?
  2. Roaring Brook Falls/Giant Mountain trailhead - Keene NY - Adirondacks. Lamy Logo
  3. First Impressions Normally, I don't care about packaging as long as it protects the item inside. Having read several reviews of Lamy Safaris/Al-Stars, I expected to see a cardboard box. What a surprise it was to receive this sturdy plastic box instead. It has a clever design that splits along the middle and folds back on itself to display the pen. I was (and still am) very impressed with the packaging and presentation, though it's not as environmentally friendly. http://i.imgur.com/7RbimMc.jpg http://i.imgur.com/d5YlLs1.jpg Appearance & Design (8/10) The silver Lamy Logo comes in two varieties, brushed or matte stainless steel. I have the matte version which has black plastic ends instead of chrome trim. I actually prefer the industrial look of this pen over some classical designs. It has a minimal, form-follows-function design that suggests reliability, functionality and good engineering. The plastic ends detract from the appearance slightly but they also contribute to the no-frills, everyday workhorse look. Construction & Quality (9/10) Although light and partly plastic, this pen is very sturdy. The cap closes with a reassuring click and posts securely. The clip is excellent. I sometimes pinch the top end of the cap to open up the clip, which makes it easier to clip the pen upright in a pocket inside my bag. The ribbed cylindrical grip section is both comfortable and functional. It's stainless steel but I don't find it slippery at all. The barrel unscrews at the seam right above the grip. The threads are all steel and unscrew easily - sometimes too easily. If the barrel's not tightly secured, it may unscrew itself while I'm writing. http://i.imgur.com/E0snpUs.jpg http://i.imgur.com/icA5P9m.jpg Weight & Dimensions (10/10) This is a very slim and light pen. I have small hands (child-sized, really) and find the unposted length and balance perfect. When posted, the Logo becomes much longer but also too back-heavy for my taste. Nib & Performance (10/10) I have the Lamy EF steel nib. In short, I love it. Perhaps I'm lucky since I've heard Lamy nibs can vary slightly. I think mine also has a miniscule amount of flex. From left to right, here's the Lamy Logo (Lamy Blue ink), a 0.5mm pencil and Bic Round Stic: http://i.imgur.com/zVVh6wI.jpg As you can see, the line width is similar to a 0.5mm pencil on poor paper. It's narrower on less absorbent paper. I have left the pen for several days without use, but it always starts up right away or very quickly. The flow is perfect for my tastes - not too dry and not too wet. More importantly, the EF nib performs well on cheap student paper without excessive feathering or bleed-through. Some people may not like the feel of writing on cheap paper but I don't find it uncomfortable. It's far smoother than a pencil or a ballpoint at any rate. Filling System & Maintenance (8/10) This pen accepts Lamy cartridges or the Z26 converter. Removing the barrel is easy (as mentioned). The converter fits snugly and I am not worried about leaks. The plunger mechanism isn't as smooth as I'd like, but it works well. Cleaning is straightforward as well. Everything seems straightforward and functional. Cost & Value (8/10) This pen was a gift. I checked two websites and it's $35-$40 USD, making it the most expensive pen I own. My other pens are a Pilot Metropolian (M) and a Pilot Plumix (~1.0mm italic) but my Logo is my best writer. If something happened to it, I'd consider buying another. Conclusion (53/60) This pen has exceeded all my expectations. Then again, I was a ballpoint user two months ago. Compared to my Pilot Metropolitan (a very wet writer), my Lamy Logo lasts much longer between refills. This could be the EF vs M nib difference though. I don't have to worry about leaking, skipping, compatible inks, etc. like my Pilot Plumix either. The Logo is an almost ballpoint-like experience because I can forget about the pen itself and concentrate on writing until cleaning/refilling time. To me, this is an extremely valuable trait that more expensive pens may not have.
  4. I´d like to buy the Cult Pens Mini Fountain Pen, and since they use Kaweco (Bock) nibs (AL Sport, Liliput and Dia) I want some advice about them. ¿How the Kaweco F and M nibs are compared to a Lamy Logo F or a Sheaffer Intensity M or a Faber-Castell Basic M nibs? I have a tiny handwriting so I don´t like broad nibs, but I have to take rapid notes so I need a good flow (not an easy task to find the right nib).
