To celebrate the creation of this long awaited Lamy forum, I propose to start the typical "What pen of this brand are you using today" thread, so popular in other forums.

 

This is my today's choice: Lamy ABC FP + pencil set. They are no longer made.

Just yesterday a friend arrived in Brazil, coming from US, where he bought to me a Lamy 2000 with an extra-fine nib. What a wonderful pen, fits in my hand perfectly, it feels robust and well made. The nib is impressive smooth, I was afraid to get a scratchy nib. I am using this pen today, and possibly will use it all the weeks to come.

Hello Bernardo,

 

That is a neat set.  :D  I hope you're idea of this "What You're Using Today" thread takes off.  ;)

 

 

Hello All Lamy Fans,

 

Today I'm using a white Safari "M" loaded with Lamy Turquoise; a yellow Safari "F," loaded with Lamy Coral and a Wild Rubin Studio "M," loaded with a Lamy Blue cartridge, (but I think I'm going to ditch the cart early and bottle feed it with Lamy Black), - black ink coming from that ruby pen will really look sharp... IMHO.

 

Best regards,

 

Chris

Purple AL-Star with LH nib. Sailor Jentle Blue is the ink. When I'm out and about, this is my go-to pen and ink combination.

Charcoal Safari EF. The ink is R&K iron gall blue (or something like that -- the bottle's at work). It's my main "official" work pen at the moment.

Trying to hold myself back from having all my collection inked at once! I just got Diamine Macassar to go with my Coffee Al Star yesterday.  I love Private Reserve Rose Rage in the 1.1 nib but I can't settle on an Al Star body that I like to go with it.  Still don't like the co-ordination with the Graphite Al Star either (already had it in the Coffee and Shiraz bodies).

@ Bernardo: I like that box......

 

At the moment have my wife's charcoal Safari at my desk.

I let her try a new Parker 15 I got a while back and she actually preferred that. So I am writing this empty and then do a good clean, was about that time anyway.

 

After that? Another Lamy...?

Just my yellow safari fine nib with Diamine Chocolate.
