Awesome Pick Ups! Love me some Lamy's...Kaweco's too. Very Nice Which nibs did you get?I'm off the rails.
The Studio I posted about on the first page is here but I also managed 2 other pickups in the meantime. I'm supposed to be getting rid of pens. Now I have to get rid of six pens.
Two very different pens. The Studio is a bit heavier but it is really well balanced. The shiny section doesn't bother me. Also, some people turn it into a brushed section with some ScotchBrite. The Studio reminds me of the Cross ATX, which is one of my favorites - also with a metal section. The 2000 is just great and I can see why it has been relatively unchanged for 50 years. I read reviews that said it just felt good in the hand and I find that to be very true.Nice haul, Chris. How do you like the Studio compared to the Lamy 2000? I like the looks of it, all except that shiny metal grip section. That's a deal breaker for me.
Funny you should ask. My typical nib choice is medium. I find fine points too scratchy for me and my writing is so sloppy that a bold nib is a nightmare. So medium seems to work for me. The Kaweco is medium and it is just what I expect out of a medium nib. I can't stop writing with the pen. It was an impulse buy from Pen Chalet on their 12 days of Christmas sale - 25%off!Awesome Pick Ups! Love me some Lamy's...Kaweco's too. Very Nice Which nibs did you get?
The Lamy fine is a bit finer than the Kaweco medium but not too much. Of course, I have heard that there can be quite a bit of variation in the 2000 among nibs of the same nominal width.Chris, Awesome story about how the pens turned out for you. I too have a 2000 in fine and really like its size; How does the medium Kaweco nib compare in size to the Lamy if you don't mind me asking?
