Lamy Benitoite ink

Lamy joins a Gemstone Club with their new series of “originally” named inks. As much as I’m excited about new Lamy inks, I loathe their lack of creativity. Call it a pet peeve but when I see another line of inks inspired by gemstonjes, I clench my teeth.

Anyway, the bottles and packaging look cool.


The ink is moderately saturated. It flows well but shows a tendency to dry out in the pen. Apart from this, it behaves well. Probably not the best archival ink ever, but well worth a shot.
