My first LX with a fine nib didn't write smoothly out of the box, so I sent it back. I thought it was an exception considering I've been happy with my Lamy Al-Star (fine nib). I requested a nib replacement, this time a medium nib. I contacted LAMY Support and they didn't get back to me for over a week, so I mailed my pen back to Pen Boutique. PB accepted my return and sent me a brand new Lamy LX with a medium nib. At first the pen felt ok but in a short while, I felt that the nib was not writing smoothly and it took effort to write with the pen. I read somewhere that the nib is coated with some material. Before raising the issue yet again with PB, I flushed the pen thoroughly and manually adjusted the nib's ink flow. I knew that by manually adjusting the pen will void the warranty but did it anyway. I don't regret buying the LX because it is a beautiful pen. I just wish LAMY had done a better job ensuring that their products met the standards their customers are accustomed to. I'm highly impressed by the exceptional customer service provided by Pen Boutique. They know their business and are knowledgeable.
