A great ink in a loud pen, I've written a review on this pen-ink combo. Here are the scans and a few pictures of the pen and ink bottle.

Wow, very nice.  I enjoy purples.  Now, tell us your thoughts ... are you purple ink, yellow pen kinda person?


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

I have been wanting to get my wife her first real fountain pen.  Would this be a good choice?  If so, why, and if not, why?  Thanks

Fun reviews.  Rad color combo, excellent choice of complimentary colors.

The Lamy Safari/Al Star/Vista (ABS plastic/aluminum/demonstrator) is a very good first pen. The section while not to everyone's liking does help someone who is new to fountain pens to learn to hold the pen correctly.

This is too weird - I've tried and disliked Waterman Purple in the past - but wow these two together open up a new realm - Thanks for the great photos.  Mind expanding.

Different pen, different nib and different paper - make the same ink look different.
