Lamy Green is so ubiquitous and inexpensive compared to so many other exotic brands that it's easy to forget sometimes how stunningly beautiful and easy to use this ink is. I have several other greens I've been tempted to try over the years, and some of them I really enjoy, but I always come back to Lamy in the end. This is just a wonderfully rich and well-behaved ink. Give it a try. You won't regret it.
