Dear FPNers,

 

I have four FPs

- Lamy Studio Palladium

- Waterman Carène

- Parker Premier

- Caran d'Ache Léman

but only use the first two. I wrote with the Parker a couple of times, but never inked the CdA – I think I don't have a "suitable" environment for them.

 

Regarding the Waterman and the Lamy, both write nicely, but I prefer the Waterman. The Lamy is a bit too wet and, while the Carène writes without ANY resistance, I feel the Studio Palladium... not to be "scratchy", but kind of tending to offer resistance to some movements over the paper. I can assure that the M nib of the Lamy is in perfect condition.

 

I would like to read the experiences of those of you write or have written with both.

 

 

Marcelo

I haven't written with the Studio, but I've written with Lamy's standard gold nibs and they were usually very smooth and a bit bouncy.

I have a Carene, it is smooth and it is a real pleasure to write with, if you have a proper ink. It is very rigid.

I have a Premier as well. Sometimes I love it, sometimes not really. It depends on the ink. I have tried a few inks in each pen and I absolutely love both of them with GvFC inks.

I have never written anything with the Caran d'Ache.

Can't you at least use the CdA at home? I mean it's such a great pen it's a waste not to use it, unless you plan on selling it.

I have four Carenes with EF, F, M and L (broad) nibs. I use the EF.

 

Different makers' pens have different characteristics, like the width of any nominal sized nib and how smooth it is. I think Pelikan takes the cake for smoothness, and the M1000 OBBB I had was like writing on ice with an icicle.

 

It seems like you are buying up models of pens and not the low end pens. I think that is wise, and the nicer models of pens I have had have given me a great deal more satisfaction than low end pens.

I know it is, and I don't plan on selling it, absolutely. The thing is I don't even have an office-like space at home. If I had it, and a proper table to have my FPs over, I would surely do.

 

In fact I am a very simple man (moneywise) with a small bunch of very nice and expensive pens. ;)

Carene, I just love it even though I sent it for repair due to the feeding system. I love writing with it, the nib is very smooth and the design really helps me a lot.

I like flowers, mother of pearl, dip nibs, blue, green or red inks. I also like flowers, Frida Kahlo's paintings and Josephine Baker's songs. Did I mention flowers and mother of pearl?

It is such a great pen indeed. :)

      @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.
