Cp1 Caps Are Good!

Recommended Posts

I just pulled out my Deutsche Telekom CP1 that has been sitting in a draw since March. It was inked with an old Lamy cartridge filled with Diamine Bilberry.

 

Expecting it to contain nothing but purple ink dust by now I tried writing with it. It worked the first time - not even a hard start nor shake nor moistening of the nib was required. It wrote as if it were freshly filled. I checked the cartridge - about 5-10% ink evaporation in 7 months.

 

Now that is a cap seal!

Wish they used that seal on the Aion. It's a well-designed pen.

CP1 cap does have a, surprisingly, good seal. Mine is for diary duties as it is too slim for an EDC.

@1nkulus, if you carry your pen-loop equipped journal daily, then the Lamy CP1 is just right for an EDC pen. ;)

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

You almost got me, but I always remember to leave the journal at home in my study along with the CP1. :lol:

With all the pens on the loose, I had to create a use for the CP1 else it would have been forgotten.

One of the most underrated pens. it posts well (snap post) it's wonderfully balanced. and I've found it to be incredibly durable. It's really the only lamy that uses the z50 nib that I actually think is worth the money.
