Great looking pen and great review. Already on my fountain-pen-to-buy list

sad thing is though, takes decades for pens to trickle into little old Nz and in Remuera where I am living, there's literally on one miniature stationary shop that either doesn't have the pen or sells it with ridiculous margins compared to amazon.

Thank you for the comments!  The only way I would have ever gotten this pen was by seeing it in person on a business trip through Frankfurt.  I actually bought it for myself for my birthday.  I do understand about the dirth of brick and mortar stores that sell pens, inks and stationary.  The nearest one to me is hundreds of miles away.

Hi Deborah,

Thank you for taking the time and effort to write this great review. :thumbup:

My original plan was to get the olive-silver one, but I think I'll opt for the black instead... it has that classic elegance vibe going for it.

Again, great review... thank you. Be well. :)

...I am not a big fan of Lamy inks...


Hello, again, Deborah,

Their black and turquoise are excellent inks... the rest you can keep. :)

I'm surprised this pen hasn't made it to the US yet. Someone had one at the SF show back in August and I was impressed. It's feels like quite a nice pen for the price point. I think it will do well alongside the Studio, as it really doesn't feel like a similar pen. I have several Studios and will likely pick up an Aion. I forgot if the nibs are interchangeable, hopefully, as I prefer the gold nibs on Studios.

Thank you.  I agree, the black is much nicer.

I might agree about the turquoise ink.  I don't use black ink hardly ever.

When I picked mine up in Germany, the Lamy salesman said that they weren't selling in the US yet.  They wanted to try them in Europe first.  

 

The Aion is different that the Studio.  It has an altogether different feel.  I like them both, but for different reasons.  Also, although I think the nibs will fit on either pen, I am not sure if they behave the same.  The sides of the Aion nib are more contoured and it appears to be slightly arched.  I am sure that someone will try them out and let us know if changing the nibs works as well as the original.  But truthfully, I am very happy with the nib that came on the pen.

Thanks, Dr.P.,... I'll be keeping an eye out for it... I wonder if that's when the green Studio will be released, too? :unsure:
