Hi Pseudo,

Yes. I don't know why they don't make the rubberized grip an option on all the Studio's... like a nib option. :huh:

I know that would cost them a few extra cents per pen... but I think they'd make that up with a lot of extra sales.

Thanks! It shows how tone deaf a company is when they don't react to the one thing almost all they customers complain about. It would be an investment since it devalues the brand, of course I can't complain since I bought my used blue Studio for 40 bucks... Hasn't got to me yet though.

Finally got a Studio in Imperial Blue... I seem to get along with the chrome section... Which means that green Studio might be next. It's interesting how the same nib type just glides on this thing, unlike my 7 Lamy Vistas; it might just be a case of the previous owner adjusting it, he also included another 2 nibs. Not bad for $40 bucks!

Hi Pseudo, et al,

Glad to hear you like it... I love all of mine... the chrome sections do not bother me, either. :)

I'm impressed you have the acumen to notice the difference between the Studio nibs and the rest. There's a good reason for that.

The nibs on the Studios (and L2K's) are tested and tuned by hand; the others are tested robotically... this is why I've never experienced a bum nib on a Studio. :)

I'm sure every now and then, a dud escapes, but the problem is much more common on the Safari's.

Enjoy. :thumbup:

When you get the Racing Green Studio, could you give us a description of the color using an ink color that is closely matching, or/and comparing it to the Petrol Safari color.

It would be very helpful!


Hello Anne-Sophie, et al,

XI5MW4L.jpg


From the bottom to the top:

Black Safari, (for color contrast).
Racing Green Studio
Petrol Safari
Blue-Green Al-Star
Charged Green Al-Star
Neon Lime Safari
White Safari, (for color contrast).


The pic shows the Studio as almost a very dark olive, but I would call it a deep forest green with a blue hue.

Be well. :)


- Anthony


ETA: Your eyes do not deceive you... the petrol Safari is darker... when I first set-up this shot, I was making the Studio "the star"; however, in color sequence, the petrol Safari would come after the black one. ;)

Just to follow-up... I forgot to include my Apple green Safari, (for color relation); it was taking a bath at the time this photo was taken. :)

Thanks Anthony, it's looking good. I'll wait and see if I keep getting along with the Imperial Blue to put the green on the list. J Herbin Vert Empire might be a good match for the colour, although I don't match inks to pens by colour.

You're welcome, Pseudo. :)

Yes, Vert Empire is a good choice... so is Diamine Evergreen and Sherwood... or do what I'm doing and use a complementary contrasting color... like Diamine Chocolate. ;)

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

Hi AL01,

Am I to assume from this that the next LE Safari or Al-Star will be some shade of blue? :unsure:

 No....

 

 

 I wuz talkin' about the Studio....

 

 But somebody beat me to it.

 

 In regards to the next LE for a Safari/ Al - Star....

 

 I have no idea.

 

 That's all the inside information I will ever get from Lamy.

 

 Eh... It was fun while it lasted.
