Lamy Joy 1.5Mm Italic Stub Nib Written Review


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, here's a written review of the Lamy Joy with a 1.5mm Italic Stub nib. I haven't seen any reviews for this pen/nib combination, so here goes nothing! Sorry for any seemingly confusing information, this is my first review. Sorry if my handwriting isn't all that good, it never has been.


I really cannot figure out why the pictures are uploading sideways, so my advance apologies.


Let me know what you think, and enjoy!

Uh, could you rotate the pics so the text can be read comfortably?


Thank you

I would, but I don't know how! Sorry!

How are you holding the pen relative to the paper?

From the line variation, it looks like your pen and hand is almost due right of the letters, rather than below the letters.

I just received the same pen (Lamy Joy) with a 1.1 nib.

And it has just been adopted as one of my favorite pens to write with, because of the ease of making the line variations when I write.

Plus the fact that I like desk pens, and the Joy looks and feel just like a desk pen.

I chose the narrower 1.1 nib because I wanted to use it for general writing, and did not want a wide line difference. IOW, just enough to make the writing look interesting.


BTW, here is Seth's review rotated right side up for easier reading.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
