Lamy Studio Boo-Boo

Boo-Boo on Lamy Studio

This really upset me...

I have a Conway Stewart 20 pen case and 12 pens. It never occurred to me that I needed to have the pens loaded into the case with the pen caps nearest the open edge of the case. I had had them loaded with the caps towards the center. When you have 5 Lamy Safari/AL-Stars, this is an important fact to know, because the Lamy caps are very wide and when I went to slip my new Lamy Accent on the other side of the case and then zip it shut...

Crunch.

The Studio clip was pushed against the cap and it scraped off some of the coating atop of the aluminum.

It's like the way a new car always gets a door ding within 48 hours of ownership regardless if you park it within the same county as another car.

Door ding faeries. Pen ding faeries.

I'll get over it.

Aww. I'm sorry. I totally understand, I would feel the same.

I have a black Lamy studio, it has a soft cushion like rubber like coating. Very easy to write with, could write quite awhile without any fatique. HOWEVER, the design of clip leads to a rubbing away of the coating just thru normal use. Great pen, bad design flaw in my opinion. Great looking black pen and there under the clip a streak of the shiny aluminum underneath.

I am hankering for a Lamy Studio of my very own.

Aw babe! I feel you. I put a dent in the cap of my green Platignum 5 within 24 hours of owning it. :( Gutted.
