Last week I received a long awaited parcel from cultpens.com. Inside, a green festival : a Lamy Safari Apple Green
and a bottle of Diamine Apple Glory. These two are made to be together, a match made in Heaven for anybody who loves bright green colours.

The pen is a M nib, and as most Safari, it writes wonderfully. Wet pen, no skipping, always ready to write, it glides on paper without effort,
leaving behinf a lusty trail of ink. The colour of this 2012 LE is a bright, happy, joyful green, and I really like it a lot, my favorite Safari color.

And what about the ink? The perfect match for the pen, Diamine Apple Glory is a vibrant light green, almost the same colour than the pen. I really love it!

I have not rec'd my green Lamy yet, due any day now, but I have yet to give any thought to the ink I will be putting thru it. I went on an ink buying spree last week, so I guess I will have to wait for all my inks to land to see what I purchased in case I did get a green ink to go with my new Lamy.

Me too! That is I was planning on this combo as well. Can't wait for the goulets to get them in. Thanks for the review! I wonder how this compares to Diamine Jade - this seems more blue and a little more saturated, so I'm telling myself it'll be okay to get this one too ;)

At first, I thought the ink might be too bright to match the pen, but after mine arrived today, I'd say it's a pretty durn good match. The apple green Safari is BRIGHT. :blink:

Thanks a lot to all of you, glad you liked it.
I've doing some experiments with the ink tonight, it behaves rather nice even on cheap paper, and it works great as highlighting ink. I guess that the green inked green safari will join my everyday carry pen roll...

I might have to order this ink to use when my green Safari arrives! The color is just perfect!
