Ink Review #609: Lamy Bronze


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.


The color:

Bronze is a medium orange with some pretty shading.



In large swabs you can see the pretty shading.


Writing samples:

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

Feathering: None

Show through: Medium

Bleeding: None

Other properties: medium shading, no sheen, and no shimmer.

On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was feathering and bleeding in the larger nib sizes.

Comparison Swabs:


There are a lot of orange inks in this range, Robert Oster Orange Rumble seems the closest. Click here to see the Lamy inks together, and click here to see the orange inks together.

Longer Writing:


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.
