Comparing one Lamy to another, the Nexx is about one quarter inch shorter than the Lamy Al-Star but the diameter of the pen itself is probably similar.

While most of the Lamy pens are fun to use, reliable and attractive, the Lamy Nexx has a younger, YA look that should appeal to both the old (like me) and the younger set. It is also a fountain pen that would make a great gift (graduations are coming up) or given as an introductory fountain pen to a new user.
It takes the standard converter that fits in Lamy Safaris and Al-Stars, and that the nib is totally interchangeable. It is a click rather than a twist cap and as I have been alternating fountain pens, I realize how much easier and perhaps nicer it is to have that feature in a pen one uses on the go--and go the Lamy Nexx has done.
