Lamy Lady Review

Recommended Posts

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:

https://youtu.be/N08pnEXZqgU

 

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.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
