For Valentine’s Day Mitchell gifted me with the Lamy Al-Star in the new pink
*flowers and pens and ink and watercolors, the man knows the way to my heart*
but the color was really meh… not bright fuchsia or magenta but a softer mauvie-pink.
I returned it… neva-gonna-use-it so thought it best.
Just in time for St. Patty’s Day came a lovely yellow-green TWSBI ECO with a 1.1stub nib to replace it! WOWWEE! Great color! I inked it with Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun
ink and took her out for a spin last night and she is amazing. I get why people
love this pen so much. Smooth from the start, and holds a TON of ink!
Compared to the Lamy Al-Stars a smoother writing pen.
I wish the nibs were changeable… I guess I’ll need two!
