My All-Star demonstrator broke about a year and a half ago so I went to the art store across from my office the other day, they only had the display model left so I got it for like 15% off.

The cartridge only has a bit of ink left in it but I really like the Lamy blue. But I don't like having multiples of the same color and the Athena Blue from Maruzen is so sexy. Not sure if I should pick up some cartridges.

Anyway, tbh, Lamy has engineered the smoothest-writing pen of them all. They really do have the function element perfected. The form part, well. If German-engineered precision is your thing...

What ink does everyone use? The first ink I ever bought was Shin-Kai, which is close to being the perfect blue/black I've ever seen. My others:

Noodlers Black
Noodlers Hunter Green
Sailor Kobe #9 Suma Purple
Sailor Kobe #8 Arima Amber (the closest I could find that matches Longhorn burnt orange)
Diamine Safari
Private Reserve Orange Crush
Diamine Oxblood
Noodlers Walnut - forgot this one.

I think that pretty much covers every writing scenario I can imagine.

Athena Blue
Paradise Pen's red ink
Iroshizuku Shin-Ryoku
Diamine Pizzazz (meh)
Some private-label brown ink from a Tokyo pen shop (the name escapes me).

Looking to add a green I actually like or an orange to my rotation.
