Shiny metal section :(

What are dimensions of that section?

If the nib is anything to go by the thing is going to be rather slim.

Looks like it's a slimmer Studio/Aion. Not slim as CP-1. It's drop shaped, so it'll feel slimmer. Looks like it's using the Aion nib too.

Looks very nice, but I have enough pens for now. Maybe later.

...that also tapers that way towards the end. Double negative for me.

 

Yes, not crazy about that either aesthetically, but I think it's more comfortable for holding securely that way.

Any information about the new Lamy Ideos? Is a new design?

Let`s see the price, it comes with the new AION nib, is it simply great and better than the safari nibs, I have swapped a safari and a studio nibs for theses and the difference in remarkable.

With these nib and at a good price I will buy one

What 's better about the Aion nib vs. standard Safari/Al-Star nib?

Kinda looks like a fat metallic Parker Vector to me.

I'll reserve judgment until I see one in person, and can assess the size and weight (and of course the price), but first impressions are kinda like Mr. Rene's -- the pen is not overly inspiring....

I can hear the EOOS pitch to Lamy execs, "Teardrop is the new black"

 

Gosh! it doesn't roll off the table because it's not a cylinder, genius! ;)

 

If asymmetry starts a new trend maybe we'll see more of this from other brands.

Good job Lamy! While I may not be in the market for one, kudos to you for innovating and trying something new. I'll at least make it to my local pen shop to take a look at it in person.

I like the design, but similar to others, I really dont like shiny metal sections, so will pass on this.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
