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, - have I got a pen with defective finish? - or is it just the daily use that it has seen back in the day? I expect that from the daily use it would acquire some scratches, but I find it dificult to believe that the matte finish would go away so easily.
From the album: European pensThis 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. I bought this originally to fit the ‘50 years of Lamy design’ commemorative notebook, of which I picked up a few heavily discounted. They each came with a Logo M+ ballpoint pen with a rubberised finish that is comfortable to hold and offers superb grip, but I would rather write in the notebook with a fountain pen; yet there are so few that would fit the tight pen loop. After buying the cp1 in matte black finish, which also offers excellent grip, I was so impressed that I've since bought two more, as well as one with platinum finish and a 14K gold nib; but I just don't love the more ‘premium’ version the way I do this pen. I usually use a black Z52 steel EF nib on this pen these days, but I also have a black Z57 gold EF nib on standby, to fit either this or my Studio Lx All Black (SLAB!).

I have seen a couple of posts comparing materials but color is usually a big factor in choice in those discussions. I am interested in getting a solid black pen made with a satin - matte finish (Edison Morgan). A deep inky black color with the matte finish is important. But handle or feel is for me even more important. A velvety, silky feel that provides a secure purchase when held. Is there a big difference in feel and color between matte black ebonite and acrylic? I have also seen Torlon on the Edison site but I'm not sure it's still available. Anyone have experience with different satin / matte finish materials?
