LAMY Crystal Azurite Ink

It has been really exciting to see LAMY roll out so many different colored inks in their Crystal lineup. One of the LAMY inks that I recently tested is Azurite. All of the LAMY Crytal inks have been named for naturally occurring crystals, that can be found in nature. Azurite is a soft stone, named for its deep “azure blue” color and in this regard, the new LAMY Crystal Azurite ink is a luxurious looking purplish blue ink with great saturation and flow. I have been using it in a Diplomat Aero with a Broad nib and the color and flow is really fantastic! If you are looking for a rich purplish-blue ink, then stop into The PenThing and pick up a bottle while they last!


The PenThing has been waiting patiently to get their shipment of the Blackwing Volume 811 which should be here this week. The Blackwing Volume 811 is a tribute to libraries and the hope they represent. Some of my fondest intellectual pursuits were the times I would be doing research in the New York Public Library under the soft desk lamps on the tables. This pencil is a throwback to that time and period – reminiscent of the green glass used for the lamp.  Each pencil is coated with a special phosphorescent topcoat, so it can be a literal light in the dark. The model number 811 is a reference to the American poetry section of the Dewey Decimal System that contains the works of countless inspirational writers. Check out the Blackwing Volume 811 which is a Limited Edition pencil and is available online from The PenThing!
