I love slim fountain pens that fit snugly in my hand, so the Lamy CP1 Titanium Fountain Pen was certainly on my list to add to my collection.
This is a light-weight pen with a sleek design: the titanium body has a matte black lacquer finish, an impressive brushed steel clip, and a thin, pointy polished steel nib. The fine nib writes more like a medium to my eye, but other than that it's a great writing instrument.
If you like to post your cap, that detail seems to add to the overall appeal of the pen as it makes it seem slimmer yet more substantial at the same time. And if you are interested in details, on the side of the clip is the word "Lamy", while under the clip it says "Germany."
The CP1 also comes with a converter so you don't have to remember to get one, and the stainless steel case is an added bonus.
Overall this is a beautiful fountain pen at a very good price, and if you are looking for something slim and sleek the Lamy CP1 fits that description perfectly.
