I must admit, I am really starting to like this pen. Now I see why so many people who like fountain pens, use this brand of pen. The Lamy Al-Star fountain pen. It is a bit lighter in weight than I am used to (since I am used to Moteverde's tool pen and a durable Sheaffer 100 pen). However, it has held up in the short amount of time that I have owned this.
When I purchased this pen, I also decided to give some different inks and colors a try. Noodlers appears to have the larger selection of all the inks available at Goulet Pens so hence I chose two from Noodlers. Noodler's Antietam and Noodler's Burma Road Brown. Both inks I am kind of partial too.

After a few days of writing with the Antietam, I cleaned out my Lamy pen and switched inks to Noodler's Burma Road Brown. This ink also goes on really smooth. I think I might like this ink more so than the Antietam. The color reminds me of muddy water. Or maybe diluted mud. Either way, a couple of days writing with this ink will tell more.

So, with that, the journaling continues!
