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 imporium Rollerball Pen is an exciting combination of functional design and premium materials, effortlessly uniting attitude and style. The contrasting architectural guilloche design is reminiscent of Grecian columns without being bound to the rigid forms of classical design. The quality of engineering and materials is exhibited in the incredibly solid construction, where the smooth, contrasting ribs of the grip and the refined 14 karat gold nib provide a uniquely indulgent and entirely satisfying writing experience. The high-quality PVD (physical vapor deposition) coating is both impossibly smooth and marvellously robust, with a colour scheme that evokes the grandeur of Art Deco and an unapologetically grand design that's larger than life.<br><br>A standout in the LAMY range, the imporium's striking aesthetic leaves a lasting impression.
