This year’s Lamy special edition ink is Lamy Bronze. So far I have really enjoyed the special edition inks, so I was excited to try this one out. I purchased my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.
Bronze is a medium orange with some pretty shading.
In large swabs you can see the pretty shading.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in the larger nib sizes.
I used a Lamy Al-star Bronze with a medium nib on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, it’s a nice well-behaved orange ink. It matches the Al-Star Bronze better than I expected. I like it, and it’s a great ink for the low price.
