I am really loving the 1.1 as an everyday writer. The 1.5 was a little thick for some things.

I did a survey of the standard and italic Lamy nibs a few years back on FPN. The pics are all on Flickr. I used a bunch of inks on plain, lined, and grid paper. Here's the link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lamy200...7623947341376/
Since we're on a Safari kick, here are two I picked up this month: Apple Lamy Safari served two ways - Apple Computer red and the standard Safari apple green.
The Safari apple green is the 2012 production color and came from the fine folks at Goulet Pen Company.
The red Apple Computer pen came from eBay, and the seller had a number of other Apple branded products that he picked up at the Apple mothership store in Cupertino. The endcap is stamped W. Germany, the nib is plain black with no markings, and the old Apple logo all point to somewhere in the mid-80s to I suppose 1990 at the latest. I'd heard about these floating around, and I was quite tickled to nab one from eBay at a reasonable price, considering how crazily people have been pricing out-of-production Safaris over there as of late.
I just bought a Lamy Safari ... blue, 1.1mm italic, for my sister (birthday pending.) Also, a bottle of Bad Belted Kingfisher.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.

A Pelikan M200 with medium nib (my first Pelikan), a bottle of Pelikan Brilliant Black, and a bottle of Lamy Black. I have been wanting a Lamy bottle for a while. I am going to try the Lamy ink in my Al-Star to see if I like it. I LOVE the M200. It is a light pen, but it feels good in the hand, feels solidly built, and the nib is really smooth. I think this may be my gateway drug to the world of Pelikan pens. Due to the 15% June closeout of Pelikan pens at Goulets, plus free priority shipping for orders greater than $100, the all came out to $106. Happy belated father's day to me.
