Why, given this is one of more boring Studios? Well it was my first Lamy, it has a plastic grip section rather than shiny metal (making it lighter and less slippery), and at a pinch the brushed finish can be used as a nail file.

Nice. This pen have been on my list for a while now, and I guess I have to wait until I either find a used one with a plastic grip, or until they start making them again.
