Lamy 1.1 nib Review


The cool thing about Lamy fountain pens is lots of the different types share the same sort of nib. One of them, i'd list the Lamy AL-Star, Vista, Safari, Joy, CP1, Logo, Pur, Studio and Accent. Whew, that's most of them! Sharing is good, but being able to swap nibs on the road is also better.

Switching the nib using one of the designs is a piece of cake. The nib lies in the feast upon a kind of "rail". It slides on or off easily. Initially you may want to utilize the "scotch tape" method to take away the nib, meaning that you can expect to stick an item of tape into nib then pull it out by the tape. Brian Goulet has an excellent movie outlining this really idea:

I've discovered that after you have swapped the nib several times, the feed becomes less reluctant and enables you to eliminate the nib together with your bare fingers. Which is how I get it done nowadays.

I bought my Lamy AL-Star with an EF nib but I really wanted to attempt their italic nibs therefore I bought the trio of italics in 1.1mm, 1.5mm and 1.9mm. Since these nibs are not precisely cheap i needed for the best offer on the internet. At the time, my personal favorite shop (no association, simply a satisfied buyer, yada yada) didn't sell Lamy stuff and so I discovered a UK company, The Writing table (no affiliation) which sold these nibs for an excellent price. Including delivery, they cost less than what I will have compensated here in the US.

Anyhow, as the Lamy italic nibs tend to be enjoyable to use, I don't find myself with them a great deal but that's simply because I do not utilize my pens loads these days. Check out quick impressions on each of these. For this comparison I utilized Diamine Majestic Blue ink.

1.1mm italic
This nib could very well be easy and simple italic to begin with with whenever you are lacking knowledge. Line variation has reached the absolute minimum and you will effortlessly make use of this nib on a day-to-day basis.

1.5mm italic
You will start seeing some real line variation. It becomes evident that an italic nib is used. It is possibly my personal favorite dimensions because it's neither also broad nor too narrow.

1.9mm italic
The greatest size is more difficult for quick writing therefore perhaps it ought to be delegated to calligraphy duty. I discovered that, while all nibs movement very well, the 1.9mm has to be held in great experience of the report or otherwise it could skip slightly.

In summary, while i love the 1.5mm more for the mid-range difference, the 1.1mm may be the easiest to write with, even though the 1.9mm is much more situational and is best used for calligraphy. Along with italics I attempt to contain the nib at a 45 level direction towards the way of writing. That seems to create top outcomes.
