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.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
