It seems, sadly, that Lamy Al-Star and LE inkcolor will be Pacific Blue. Photo from Fontoplumo website:

I'm not thrilled. How about you? I would enjoy cinammon or nutmeg or matcha green or million others than this. Of course, I'll buy it and review it but I feel betrayed :/

Oh god this ink colour... I bet it's a Yuki-akari kind of colour. Just kill me already.

 

What's wrong with these manufacturers? One Diabolo Menthe is enough. We don't need more horrors like Yuki-akari or Miles Davis Jazz Blue.

They want to destroy our fragile psyche. It may be a conspiracy. I haven't deciphered it yet but I fear the worst...

Oh, I dunno. It might look good with something such as Aurora blue or Diamine ancient copper. I'll have to see it in person because right now it doesn't speak to me.

I don't know, it's too fuffy for me, and I wear bunny slippers.


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

If Pacific Blue runs more blue-toned, I may like it -- after all I like stuff like Diamine Turquoise and vintage Skrip Peacock Blue.  OTOH, if it's more green-leaning -- like yeah, Diablo Menthe....  :sick:

If it's the same color as the pen then, no.

Well, I do like turquoise, and it seems this might be somewhere in that direction.  Though as Lamy already has a turquoise, I'm not sure why they'd make another one as a limited-edition.  I think I'll wait to see the actual ink before getting too fussed one way or t'other.  (It's odd how Lamy can be all over the place with their inks; Copper Orange and Dark Lilac are among my favorite inks from anyone, ever.  But then sometimes you get that neon green stuff, and you wonder if someone fell down and hit their head on something hard.)

Though, trying to put a good spin on it: maybe it will be a dramatically-shading turqoise, like Noodler's Navajo Turqoise, with a subtle metallic-pink halo-sheen.  I'd get me a bottle of that in a hot second.

That shade of blue is one of my favorite colors, so I might just pick up the pen!  I'll wait for reviews on the ink.  I could use a dry turquoise, but I also have a lot of turquoises so it'll need to have some verve to it for me to go in on it.

 

I'm cautiously excited!

I was whispered to that next year's Lamy LE would be more "guy suitable" than recent more-sensitive colours of purple & pink...!

Hope it's a stronger shade of turquoise not a weak limp babyblue. :)

Now that I know what the new ink will be, I will order 3 more bottles of Rikyu Cha.
