Lamy Lady Review

I recently purchased the Lamy Lady, and I wanted to share my findings. I was really surprised by this pen; it stands out in many ways when compared to the other Lamy pens. I made a video if you'd like to watch that:

First off; this pen has long been discontinued and may be a challenge to find. I was lucky to find the pen brand-new on ebay sold by an Austrian gentleman.

 

This pen is unique in many ways, but not in its tubular shape. This pen is basically a cylinder, but a cylinder composed of a marriage of aluminum and ceramic that I personally find attractive. Both ends of the pen are fairly simple, but I think that gives this pen a clean look.

 

Probably the most obvious aspect of this pen that stands out is that the barrel is made of ceramic. There are different ceramic patterns, but mine is a blue/grey/white candy-cane style swirl. It doesn't have the same amount of 'cow bell' (see the other designs) as the other designs, but I prefer this touch of color. The ceramic is very smooth and glossy, and I expect, based on my limited analysis, that it is not prone to cracking and scratching.

 

The next major unique design point of this pen is that it doesn't have a clip; a Lamy without a clip!? Yep. Instead, Lamy uses two spherical bumper 'stops', one on the cap, and the other on the tail end of the barrel. This pen does not allow posting of the cap, and therefore it is necessary for both parts of the pen to have this device to prevent rolling.

 

Finally, the Lamy Lady has a completely unique nib design. The nib wraps around the feed and is a solid platinum-colored gold nib. It is pretty stiff, but writes like a warm knife over a surface of butter.

Neat! I've never been much of a fan of LAMY, they are a wee bit boring to me, but this one seems to be some sort of fluke crazy design for them. I love the swirl design.

Who knew? Thanks for the video review, I'll have to keep my eye out for one.

      @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.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
