Oooooooo!  Ten brand new inks from Lamy. These are reported to be more saturated than other Lamy inks...which is good.  I hunted around and bought the Azurite (intense sheening Purple) and Topaz (rich brown) on Amazon Prime and eBay respectively.  Goulet’s still haven’t put these up as being available for purchase yet. Other vendors are sold out of some colors.

Brian & Rachel Goulet do a cute break down on their uTube site. You can search it for yourself.

Oh!  I paid $15 ea for the two 30 ml bottles (included shipping).
Goulet wants $18 not counting shipping.

Yeah I watched the Goulet video right after they released it. I like the new colors. I think I am leaning towards the amazonite.

Just wondering, if anyone has comments about these inks? I’m really close to snagging up a couple of bottles of amazonite. After getting a sample of California teal, I just can’t get enough of these shades of inks. I’m still a fan of a good rich deep black. But the teal shades just draw me to them.

Are the new lamy inks worth it or not in your honest opinion?

They’re worth it if you like them.  Ordering samples prior to “several bottles” is always a good idea.

Check out this series on uTube.  My favorite ink Evals .

Also...a couple of good ones...

This one should be in your wheelhouse. One of my very favorite inks.

Diamine November Rain. (fairly dark green with strong reddish sheen)

This stuff is GORGEOUS.  I don’t know of any Diamine ink I wouldn’t recommend.  Like most sheening inks this needs the right kind of paper to show the sheen (Tomoe River is ideal).

Available on Amazon but ships from Germany...the only country where it is available.  So you get that cool “exclusive factor” thing. Comes in both 30ml plastic and 80 ml glass bottles.

Fountain pens and ink are just as addictive as pipes and tobaccos.

And if you love the green stuff...maybe you should look at the blue version...Diamine Skull & Roses!  They’re kinda like salt & pepper.

This is cool.  See how much the German guy can smear on his fingers and what a good writing sample he does.  Very easy to see the red sheen after it dries a bit.

And a better review, I think.

And once the above two are secured you need to look at:

Diamine Purple Rain...and...

Diamine Smoke on the Water.




Heh, heh, heh.
