Scala
The pen is larger than it looks, medium large, and is stunning to look to look at. I ordered a fine nib and it worked out of the box perfectly without a single skip or hard start. I'd say it's a generous fine but the pen is so well built that I can do tiny script. Having collected fountain pens for 25 years, this is the best pen I've used. It's toothy, but I like the feedback. The pen breaks in over the course of the first week, so be patient for a week to ten days. It becomes a smooth writer with use. The grip is chromed metal but I haven't found it slippery. The shape of the barrel fits well in my hand. This is one pen that deserves the name: precision writing instrument. All pros, no cons. Pen Chalet changed the nib and shipped it to me free in one day. Sincere thanks to Jennifer for her help.

Special Edition Bottled Ink(50ml)
Though not a color I would typically go for, I do like its saturation. It reminds me of a copper penny.

Replacement
I purchased a Fine replacement nib for my Lamy Lx. I like the feel of the Fine nib on paper better than the Extra Fine nib that I purchased with the pen. Both the Fine and Extra Fine nibs work well, but the Extra Fine is a bit scratchy which is expected. My handwriting is small, and it favors the Extra Fine nib. Also, I like the look of the black nibs.

Special Edition AL-Star Bronze
Gotta have every color! Usual Lamy quality. As far as color? I think it's a beautiful shade lighter than the copper orange from a few years ago. It's beautiful!

Safari
I love this pen. It is excellent for twice the price. I get a smooth flow (extra fine nib) that keeps up with me even when I write fast. The feel of the pen is light and the grip so easy to use. I am getting old and my grip is not as strong as it use to be so the pen design is a real plus. The customer service at Pen Chalet was also wonderful. My first pen had a nib problem and they very quickly got me a new pen out. Could not be happier.

Special Edition AL-Star Bronze
I was unsure about this color. It's not brown at all to explain it being called bronze but is a unique shade of orange. In aluminum, it's rather more attractive than I expected. This will never be my favorite Al-Star color but I do like it and am glad I purchased it.

The writing with it, it's a Lamy so smooth and easy dependability!

Special Edition Bottled Ink(50ml)
Form the vendor end of things: Pen Chalet knows how to ship! My ink was beautifully and thoughtfully packaged, with plenty of padding/packing peanuts. It arrived without a crack or a split or a drop of ink spilled. Shopping online was dead easy and pre-ordering the ink was even easier. Confirmation of order and of shipping date was prompt, making it easy to track the progress of the product to my doorstep.

The ink itself is a lovely apricot/orange that isn't eye-stabbingly bright. It's not as dark as Lamy Copper Orange, the LE ink from 2015, and it doesn't exhibit any metallic sheen. Its saturation is such that it doesn't have a lot of shading in an extra fine nib but it does have a good amount of shading in my swabbed samples and in places were it puddled. The edges of the heavier applications dried to a lovely dark color, nearly black. Not sheen, per se, but definitely something interesting is going on there. Because it's a Lamy ink, the flow is normal to a teense dry. I will have to load it in a medium-nibbed pen to discover if the flow properties change for the wetter. I just personally prefer fine or extra fine nibs and put up with some inks not flowing as well as others. That's not entirely the fault of the ink and more a fault in the user, so YMMV!

Overall, I'm am very pleased with Pen Chalet and my Lamy ink! Give them a try and see if they're right for you.

Al-Star Special Edition
The Vibrant Pink special edition Al-Star is a beautiful color and a sturdy pen. This is my second Lamy (the other is a Joy), and even though I've tried different inks, even with the matching special edition Vibrant Pink ink intended to be used with this pen, I find it to feel very dry as I write with it. The Joy was the same, but not being familiar with these pens, I had hoped it was just the ink choices, especially given that others seem to rave about how incredible all of the Lamy pens are. Perhaps just not "my" favorite, but a quality pen, nonetheless. I still consider the pen to be of excellent quality, functionality, style, value - just a bit too dry of a writer for my preference.

Scala
I just received my Scala pen today and decided to use the cartridge first. It went in easily, and started writing immediately. I am very pleased with the feel of the pen in my hand. The nib writes smoothly. I am just getting back into using a fountain pen and love having this new member of my collection.

Very smooth writing, well balanced for it's light weight. Smoother than some of my other fountain pens that cost five times the cost of the Lamy Safari. For customers that want striking visuals, the charcoal Lamy won't win many beauty contests. But the function is superb!

Couldn't say no for the special price! Not something I would use for taking notes or long writing, but I really like for underlining/circling my notes. Works great to bring attention to the page, really stands out.

Al-Star Special Edition
When editing the books and stories I write, I have always detested using red ink, as I see it as being very negative. However . . . this Vibrant Pink Lamy Al-Star has intrigued me since its release. Finally, I decided that using THIS pen filled with Pink ink would not have the same negative appearance that red ink would, so I finally relented and purchased the pen. And I couldn't be happier. This pen writes great, looks great, and feels great.

I got it on a whim because it was discounted, and people are always on about how great Lamy pens are. Good call. I really enjoy writing with this, to the extent that it is now one of my favorite pens. It writes ridiculously smoothly.

This ink writes like butter, especially in combination with the Lamy. It's a medium rose, dark enough to be useful, no feathering and almost zero bleed through! Also, if you look at it in good lighting, there is a very subtle gold sheen. I love it!
