Nib Guide

Since it’s the part of the fountain pen that touches the paper, the nib has a major impact on how each pen writes. Most LAMY fountain pens feature Extra Fine, Fine, Medium and Broad nibs, so here’s a look at each nib size and what it does best.

Extra Fine

Extra Fine nibs are sharp and precise, with the narrowest line in the LAMY range. EF nibs excel at detailed handwriting and updating your busy schedule in your diary, and also leave the least ink on the page, helping it to dry faster. Perfect for those with tight, neat handwriting.


Fine nibs are a touch broader than EF nibs, allowing the ink to flow more generously, which creates a richer line on the page, and also lets the pen glide more gracefully across the page.


Medium nibs are broader again, delivering a thick, vivid line as it moves across the page. That extra ink also helps the pen to flow as you write, and makes your handwriting look even more lively and vibrant. If you’re starting out with fountain pens, a Medium nib is a great introduction.


Broad nibs make for handwriting that’s full of flourishes and line variations, which lends a vibrancy to letters, notes and journal entries. It’s a lively experience, and can be quite stunning, but the amount of ink on the page means it can be hard to manage for fountain pen newcomers, with greater chances of blurring or smudging.

The LAMY Lx (pronounced "luxe") adds an extra-special touch to LAMY's range of fountain pens. Made from light-weight aluminium with an anodised finish, the Lx elevates the design of the already-beloved LAMY AL-Star with premium finishes and details. The LAMY Lx has a special glossy black nib with some small design features, like the matching clip that serves as a crowning detail of the pen's elegant look.

Each LAMY Lx Fountain Pen is presented in a matching anodised aluminium case colour-matched to the pen, and each pen comes loaded with a LAMY T10 Blue Ink Cartridge. The LAMY Z28 ink converter can also be used with the Lx (not included).
