I’ve been working on my “lettering”. Lately I’ve been using a Lamy Joy Calligraphy pen with a 1.9mm nib.
It came with a dark blue ink cartridge, which I usedfor practice. The pen started skipping terribly, and I thought it was going to be a bust. I decided to fill it with a wetter ink and see if that would help. It did. Once I had changed the ink it was much smoother and I haven’t had any more problems with it.
I’m not really a Lamy fan, which seems to put me in a minority. That said, this pen does the job admirably. I like the way it looks –long and slim, with a shape reminiscent of a classic dip pen. It’s too long for my pen case, but I can overlook that.
