This is my so far favourite non-calligraphy fountain pen. I bought in an German import store and I really like it. I have many reasons for my love of this pen, but the one that ultimately prevails is the buttery smooth nib. You can't even feel the paper! I filled mine with Lamy black ink (sadly from a cartridge, as I haven't laid hands or even seen a Lamy converter around here.). It is my 4th fountain pen and only the Lamy Joy calligraphy pen has beaten it in terms of enjoyment. Mine is completely black, black nib, and even black ink to go with it. The only thing I don't like is minor; the barrel can't be screwed on so that the LAMY marking on it is in alignment with the nib. Otherwise, this pen is perfect for a plastic pen. Remember: Rotring 600 takes the crown. Always.
Comment: Beautiful pen for everyday writing and using.
