    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. 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!).

  2. Hi, I am completely new here, please let me know if I have not posted in the right place. I would like to buy my husband a pen for an anniversary present. He does a lot of writing in his job (doctor) and usually uses basic fountain pens from WHSmith which irritate him as the plastic threads wear. He also gets aching fingers as his hand slips down the grip. I have around £50 to spend. I have been trying to work my way through reviews online, and I reckon I need to look for a pen with a metal body but not a metal grip. The choices I have come up with are a Tombow Havanna (my top choice), a Sheaffer Sagaris, or a Parker Sonnet. I would be grateful for some advice- I can't seem to find out for sure if the threads on these are metal, or if the grip is any grippier (apart from the Tombow which I know is metal with a rubber grip). Also any other suggestions that fit with his needs, or what people think of the pens I have listed would be great. Many thanks x
