This is the first of a few reviews that were made possible by Appelboom Pens. They're located in the Netherlands, so if you're near Laren you should definitely check them out. They seem to have a great selection of pens, inks, and other such things.
Lamy's Copper Orange is an ink that has me on the fence. I love the color. It's a bright copper, and not a darkened copper like Ancient Copper is. It's like fresh copper, and that's a pretty rad color.
It also flows really well in this Lamy 1.1 stub that I was using it in. That stub tends to be a little on the dry side, but it worked really well with this ink. It felt smooth and consistent.
The issue that this ink has is that it does bleed and feather on copy paper. It's not the worst bleeding that I've seen, but it is present. The other side of this coin is that this probably won't be a problem for most of the people who would use this ink. It's a colorful ink, so it's more likely to be used for cards, notes, and journaling than it is for office work, and so we can use it on better papers. So, keep it on the good paper where it will play nice and look rad.
That's an interesting blend of colors, isn't it?
Copy Paper Test
As I said above, this ink isn't awesome on copy paper. Keep it on the good stuff.
I love ornange inks, but I didn't have any loaded up at the moment, so this motley crew of hues will have to do. I hope you can glean the feel of this color from the comparisons here.
