New special edition color for 2019!
The LAMY Aion is a completely new series of writing instruments, designed by Jasper Morrison. The red body and cap are constructed from solid aluminum, each made from seamless closed components. The body features an anodized matte finish, while the grip has a matte blasted circular-brushed finish. The spring-loaded clip is made from stainless steel with the logo embossed on the side.
A new innovative stainless steel nib with unconventional contours is exclusive to this series, yet interchangeable with the existing LAMY steel nibs. This fountain pen comes with a blue LAMY ink cartridge as well as a LAMY Z27 converter to get you started writing right away!
Note: To ensure quality performance, LAMY tests their pens as a final step in manufacturing. If you happen to see any residual blue ink, rest assured that this is normal.
