A little while ago, I had shot a review of the imperial blue Lamy Studio. Back then, I had praised that pen for being a really good deal at its price point: a solid writer for advanced users and a great pen for beginners that seek to move one step forward in upgrading their fountain pen game. This opinion has not changed. I personally still really like that pen and its minimalist, sleek lines.
One thing that has changed, though, is how I got along writing with that pen. It has a chrome section, and many people complain about it being slippery. Initially, I had no issues with that. And while it also did not really get to the extend of being ‘problematic’, over time I did feel the occasional slip of my fingers down the section. Since, as outlined above, I still am a great fan of the pen itself, I looked into the whole thing again – just to find that there is a Lamy Studio with a plastic section that apparently isn’t slippery. So I surely had to give that one a shot!
Having that said, here’s my (sort of) comparative re-review of the Lamy Studio. I would like to send out a huge shout-out to Fontoplumo, who has send that pen my way so that I could shoot this review. Many thanks, I am very grateful for that! Fontoplumo has also opened (yay!) a physical store in 2016 – so why not dropping by in case you pass through Delft, The Netherlands?!
