JetPens sent me a Lamy Joy Calligraphy Fountain Pen with aluminum cap and 1.1 mm nib width from open stock at their warehouse. Not only did it show up in my mailbox in Canada in just over a week (really, that's record time for a delivery from the US), I was also delighted to receive two Kuretake Brush Writers. At first I had no idea what they were but eventually I figured them out! One is black, the other is silver. I would actually have never thought to try brush writers out without having received samples but boy are they ever fun! Too bad I'm about as artistic as a teaspoon or I would create something worthy of them.
Review: Lamy Joy Calligraphy Fountain Pen 1.1 mm Nib Width
The Italic 1.1 mm nib width is a comfortable size, allowing ink to flow consistently and smoothly. If you prefer a broader nib, 1.5 mm and 1.9 mm are also available and can be easily switched.
Lamy ink cartridges, available at JetPens in black, blue-black, turquoise blue, violet purple, green, and red. If you prefer to use your own inks, you can also use the Lamy Fountain Pen Z 24 Converter, which has an easy-to-use design that won't disappoint.
Writing with this pen does not feel scratchy, especially when coupled with high quality paper (this review is written on a Quo Vadis Habana featuring Clairefontaine 90 g white paper). You will feel like your pen is gliding! The nib is made of stainless steel and is quite tolerant of a heavy hand. Users can be confident the nib will not break.
The pen is extremely comfortable to hold, with the same ergonomic grip design as the Safari fountain pens (which are equally fabulous to use).
Thanks again, JetPens!
