Aion Fountain Pen, Black
You Save: $9.05 (11%)
With an elegantly tapered, all-metal body, Lamy Aion is a serious pen that connotes professionalism and purpose. Each detail has been carefully planned by Lamy's world-class industrial designers, and Aion is manufactured entirely in-house at Lamy's advanced facility in Heidelberg, Germany. The resulting pen is an expertly honed writing instrument that pairs usability with impressive looks.
Aion's anodized aluminum surface features two different textures: brushed metal for the cap and barrel, and sandblasted, velvet-textured metal for the grip. The textural contrast is very subtle, adding visual interest to the pen while making the grip more comfortable to hold.
The cap snaps on securely and can be removed instantly, so those who like quick access to their pens will prefer this style over screw-on caps. A hidden inner cap protects your ink from drying out. The chrome clip is spring-loaded, as you can see in our photos, so it will not bend out of shape when it's repeatedly clipped to pockets and bags.
Most importantly, the Aion uses an upgraded steel nib with a unique curved shape that provides ultra-smooth writing and generous ink flow. For fountain pen users who like shading inks or shimmer inks, an Aion with medium nib is an excellent way to show off those special inks because it writes quite wet while still being easy to control. Scroll down to read about the quality-control process we use to ensure your nib will arrive in perfect writing condition.
Inside Aion's black Lamy gift box, a converter for use with bottled inks and a blue cartridge are included along with the warranty paperwork. The manufacturer warranty for this pen offers two years of coverage in case of any defect.
Available in extra fine, fine, and medium nib sizes.
WHY BUY IT HERE?
When you choose St. Louis Art Supply for any fountain pen that costs $25 or more, one of our expert technicians hand-checks and adjusts the nib, using high-powered magnification to ensure that the tines are perfectly aligned and there are no manufacturing defects. If necessary, we also use a superfine abrasive to remove any stray metal that can impact the smoothness of your nib. Finally, we clean the pen with our house pen cleaner and make sure that no fibers are stuck in the nib.
This intensive quality-control process offers you peace of mind that other retailers can't match. If you've ever bought a fountain pen from Amazon, you may have noticed that some reviews say it is smooth and others say it is scratchy. The reason is that they do not look at the pen before shipping it out. As a specialized shop with highly trained staff, we go the extra mile to provide a polished experience for every customer.
Look for our green "Tested OK" stamp on your packing slip. It's our way of letting you know that a real person checked your new pen and made sure it's perfect.
