Review: Lamy Blue Cartridge Ink

Manufacturer: Lamy | List Price: $5.50 | Buy from Amazon

When I bought my Lamy Safari five months ago, it came with a Lamy Blue Cartridge. I was saving it, but I finally decided that it was time to use it and write a review on it. When I first popped the cartridge, the ink flow was horrible. After writing for a couple days, it got its typical  dark blue. By then, it was almost a third gone. Besides that, its a great everyday ink. The scanner made the ink look purple, but it’s not. As the name suggests, the ink is blue in real life.

The paper used was Staples 20 lb copy paper. The cartridge made it impossible to swab the ink in the “Swab” section, but the water was smeared 3 (rather vigorous) times in the “Water” section. Thanks for reading!

(EDIT: The pen used was actually a Lamy Safari F, not a Lamy Safari M.)
