    This review must have been posted very soon after I ordered the Olivesilver Aion from Goulet, as I looked for your review and it was not there yet. I agree with everything you say in your excellent review. I like it, a robust nice pen. However, the Lamy 2000 is still my favorite Lamy of all. The Aion feels good in my hand and I can write quite well with it. I appreciate the design, and I think it is not overpriced on the pen market. But, my two Lamy 2000’s hold a higher place in my pen heart.

    By the way, I wet swapped the M nib on the Aion with the M nib that came with my Safari Dark Lilac pen. Writing with the same ink, I found that the M Aion nib writes smoother and significantly broader than the Safari’s M nib does.

    Thanks for an excellent review Stephen, they are always very informative and extremely well done. If I had seen your review first I would still have bought this pen as I like pens that in both classic and modern designs, and I just had to see what Lamy’s latest venture was all about.
