    Default Lamy 27 is a really nice pen

    Before Lamy 2000 took the stage in the spotlight, Lamy 27 was.

    I got this one from a collection that I acquired last year. Metal cap, probably rolled gold and the engraving on the barrel just say Lamy 27, no letters following the number.

    When I first handle it, it feels light, but as I use it to do the sketch (and some writing prior to that), the pen feels more "sure" as the time goes.
    It's one of those pens that is difficult to describe, but once in a while without even realizing it, I stopped writing and looked at the pen thinking "Cool!".

    I love piston fillers, especially German ones, and this Lamy is no exception. It is supposed to have a lot of ink capacity, and the ink window is clearly visible, so I can control how much ink I want to fill the pen with.

    How's the nib?

    The nib is partially hooded, not as much as Parker 45 though, so you still can see the breathing hole. Unlike my other German piston fillers from this era, this one writes very very fine. I would classify it as EF.



    The sketch is of an adobe style house.

    That's a nice looking pen. I'd be less keen on an EF nib, but otherwise it looks like a nice writer.

    Great drawing and a pen I'm not really familiar with. Looks a good pen.

    I should have compared it to the Lamy 2000 instead of Parker 45 on the subject of "half-hooded"-ness

    You are right, the Lamy 27 is a nice pen.
    I think yours is a kind of Lamy27/32.

    What disturbs me a little bit is the round end of the barrel, I know them with a straight end like mine.
    But Iím not a real expert on all Lamy versions, so they might vary depending on the production years.

    The 27/30 has a plastic cap.
    The 27/31 has a metal cap.
    The 27/32 has a gold plated metal cap.

    I also own one, a 27/30

    Quick lookup result, there were many 27 versions Over the years.

    Christof posted a overview some time ago:

    LAMY 27 all models and variants by C.M.Z, auf Flickr


    So according to this I think yours is a 27/n R.

    I don't think that is the case.

    This pen doesn't fit into one of the variants in the chart because it has a slip cap but doesn't have the "L" on the cap finial.
