With a £1000 vet bill just paid, and £300 dog hydrotherapy sessions to fund and another £400 of dog massage sessions… probably not until the insurance comes through, however - firstly, this is particularly poignant, this was the first pen I bought, not because I needed a fountain pen, but because I wanted a fountain pen. Secondly, I now, despite originally only owning TWSBI’s, I now have none, they have all broken in exactly the same way.
However - back when I did my eye dropper conversion and I introduced this pen:
( Still getting through that first fill, from January!!! )
I used this picture to compare it to a regular sized pen.
That box contained a new pen, that I had bought on a complete whim - pre-ordered in fact - a brand new Lamy model!
This is the Lamy Aion, in “Olivesilver” - they also do black.
It’s a really good pen! I’ve been using it since as my green ink pen, (Some redemption for my past terribleness) but now I can’t remember why I took my sailor out of rotation… It’s not looking particularly healthy
Hopefully it was simply the one that needed the change, so I went with it, or it had just had a leak and I decided to not bother cleaning it out properly - or something along those lines. I think I would remember if this one had a problem.
So now here we are: the sailor goes back to being my green, the Aion is my new blue, and everything else remains the same - kaweco eyedropper filled orange, vanishing point purple and the other lamy is my “dark pink” leaving my current favourite pen, the faber castell basic as my grey
I am uncomfortable with how sensible this looks. I need more bright, interesting preferably clashing colours. I don’t know why.
