    Problem Seating Converter New Aion?

    So as a Lamy diehard, one can imagine that when a shiny new product came out, I could not wait to get my hands on it. In this case, I refer to my purchase of a Lamy Aion from an eBay seller of repute with whom I have purchased other Lamy products in the past. Unfortunately, when the pen arrived today, I found myself with some cause for alarm. I had a spare converter ready to go (the Z27 black converter as listed on the Lamy website as compatible) and found that this pen simply refused to hold the converter in place. It would wiggle around and whenever I tried to fill it, the nib section would fall into the ink bottle leaving nothing but a converter in my hands. My reason for posting is to figure out if anyone else has had this problem with the Aion or if you think I may be the first person to come across a knock-off. Thanks in advance for any input you can provide!

    Lamy Specs Vol 1

    In case it has passed you by, Lamy has introduced a magazine 'Specs' online and in print. There is an interesting interview with Jasper Morrison about the Aion in volume 1. (English edition) (German edition)

    Lamy Z24 Converter

    I recently got myself a lamy aion, assuming it would come with a converter (it didn't) so I (stupidly) bought a converter (z24), not realising that the aion only takes a z26. Does anyone know if it is possible to simply file off the plastic bits on the z24, and make it work with my aion?

    Review - Lamy Aion

    A couple of days ago I traveled through the Frankfurt, Germany airport and noticed a store selling Lamy pens. Naturally, I had to go in and see what they had. I immediately noticed the new Lamy Aion in black satin finish and knew I had to have one. This is Lamy's new everyday carry pen. And I must say, after using it constantly since I bought it, I really like the pen. It is clear that Lamy really thought this one through. There are very few things I can say that need improvement. APPEARANCE: 10/10 Minimalist look, but very professional lookingSleek, but not too slenderSatin finished black aluminum with shiny black ring at the end of the cap which accentuates the satin finishShiny silver clip CONSTRUCTION: 10/10 Solid aluminum constructionBalanced feel even when postedSubstantial, yet not too weightyComes with a reasonably sized proprietary converter, or can be used with a cartridge. CAP: 9/10 "Click" on style - firm hold but easy to pop offCap has a wider radius than the body of the pen with a raised lip when capped (this might get hung up in a tight shirt pocket or pen sleeve) CLIP: 10/10 Minimalist designBright shiny silver with Lamy logo on the side Slips easily inside of pocket or pen sleeve GRIP SECTION: 10/10 Satin finished metalNon-slick feel; there is no slippage when gripping this penWider; does not cause cramping during writing sessionsNIB and FEED: 10/10 Excellent nib: smooth with just a tiny bit of feedback; slight spring to the nib (I generally do not care for fine steel nibs, but this is excellent)Feed delivers the right amount of ink for a slightly wet writing experience. PRICE: 10/10 Excellent value compared to other pens in the $70-90 range. Pen retails in U.S. for $89.00 (www.gouletpens.com)I purchased my Aion in the Frankfurt airport for 59 Euros. OVERALL: 9/10 For the price point, this pen is an excellent, every day carry type of pen. This is a great, professional looking, but substantial enough for a hard-working student. In my humble opinion, I believe Lamy has a winner here. COMPARISON WITH OTHER LAMY PENS: The Aion is a completely different pen than the Safari/Al-Star/LX and the Studio. The nib and feed are different as is the size and weight. The Aion weighs slightly more than the LX, Al-Star, Studio or Lamy 2000. It is wider than the Studio and Lamy 2000, but comparable to the Safari/Al-Star/LX. (Top: Aion; Bottom: Al-Star) The nibs are similar but definitely not the same. Even the wings where the nib slides onto the feed are different as shown above. While they may seem interchangeable, the feeds are different as well which may affect the delivery of ink to the nib. (Top: Aion; Middle: Al-Star; Bottom: Studio) The Al-Star and Studio nibs are more slender than the Aion nib. (Top: Aion; Middle: Al-Star; Bottom: Studio) The feeds are different as well. (Top: Aion; 2nd from top: Al-Star; 3rd from top: Studio; Bottom: 2000) As stated above, the Aion weighs more than the others, yet not substantially more. It is very comfortable in the hand even for long writing sessions. Posted it is the same length and width as the Al-Star, but without the flat spots, triangular feed and ink window. (Top: Aion; 2nd from top: Al-Star; 3rd from top: Studio; Bottom: 2000) The length of Aion when posted is between the Studio and the Al-Star, but has better balance than the Al-Star when posted. Overall, the Lamy Aion is a great pen. I highly recommend it.
