A birthday gift from the Mum-in-Law! The LAMY Studio in Imperial Blue, and the TWSBI Diamond 580 ALR in Nickel Gray.
The LAMY Studio
So we’re off to a bit of a bad start with this pen. Lots of dry lines / false starts using the stock LAMY ink cartridge. I don’t have a convertor for it yet so it will be interesting to see how it fares with other inks. I mean, it’s a fountain pen, so there could be all kinds of stuff going on. Maybe the nib needs some adjustment.
The other challenge is the section, which is a very smooth chrome. If your fingers are at all damp or oily you’r gonna have a bad time.
The pen is absolutely gorgeous and extremely well built otherwise.
The TWSBI Diamond 580 ALR
Nothing but positive things to say about this pen. Writes like a dream. Holds an ocean of ink. Feels great in the hand.
