Lamy Coral

Recommended Posts

Now that it has gotten properly winter-like where I live, I find myself choosing very bright colors occasionally as a reminder that summer will indeed come again. Once it gets a bit closer to the holidays I’ll pick more reds and greens, but for today it’s hot pink.

This ink was released to match the 2014 Neon Coral Safari, and I do think that they are a good pair. Very bright, especially the ink. Similar to other corals and hot pinks, this ink is not something that you would want to write a draft of a novel in, because you would be blind by the end of it. Much better for making corrections to that draft, because you won’t miss them with this color.

Other than how ridiculously bright it is, this was a well-behaved ink. Good flow, no bleeding or feathering that I noticed, but sadly no water resistance at all (not that I really expected it).

I wish I would have remembered to try this ink on a more cream colored paper, to see if it could subdue the color a bit. Other than super awful office paper, it did work well on pretty much everything I threw at it and didn’t put a fight to being highlighted, though that’s a bit overkill I think.

Overall, this is a fun ink but certainly not a necessary purchase. I bought it in cartridges, mostly because I have taken to refilling Lamy carts rather than use the converter, but that’s a story for another day. Lamy carts are pretty large so even though you pay a bit more for them, I think it’s not a bad deal, particularly with this ink that’s more of a novelty. You can also get this ink in bottled form, but I’ve only seen it at Goulet Pens (no affiliation, just happy customer) and Amazon, where it’s like twice the price as at GPC. If you are looking to buy the bottled ink, I would probably recommend Diamine Coral instead, because it’s a better deal unless you really want the Lamy bottle.

 

This ink was purchased with my own money and I am not being compensated for this review in any way. All opinions above are my own and you are free to disagree with them if you like.

Thank you! I have this ink in my Lamy now.

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

I bought the Lamy Safari Coral pen a while back and loved it. I inked it up with Diamine Coral, but got talked into a bottle of Lamy Coral. To be honest, I enjoy both inks. Lamy Coral is more subdued and has a bit less orange in it, and has a much nicer bottle. I'll be dealing with bright coral inks for years to come!

 

Thanks for the review. I don't have the patience to review inks myself, so I enjoy seeing those created by others!

Wait, Lamy has it bottled now? I only found cartridges.

You can find it in bottle form at GPC, and on Amazon for like twice the price...

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
