The LAMY AL-Star design is identical to the iconic LAMY Safari collection, however it’s constructed with aluminium for a wonderfully sleek finish.
This pen sits at the pinnacle of LAMY’s young writing range and is specially designed to aid the writer to develop good penmanship habits. It features a nearly indestructible brass-wire chrome-plated pen clip and a strong, lightweight body and cap as well as an ink window to easily see when the ink requires refilling.
This LAMY AL-Star fountain pen has a nib of polished stainless steel and uses a LAMY T10 giant ink cartridge or a Z24 Ink converter and bottled ink.
NIB: Extra Fine
REFILL: LAMY T 10 giant ink cartridge or Z 24 LAMY converter for bottled ink.
MATERIALS: Aluminium, stainless steel, chrome & plastic
SOURCE: Made in Germany. Designed by Wolfgang Fabian.
- My favourite fountain pens! Review by Alex
I own a shameful amount of fountain pens, from cheapies to the +$300 range, and Lamy Al-Stars are by far my favourites. The nibs can be changed with simply a light pull, and every nib size (EF, F, M, B, 1.1, 1.5, 1.9) is fantastic. I highly recommend picking up all of the nib sizes (including italics) to experiment with, and also a Lamy Z24 cartridge converter is a must - it lets you use any bottled ink, which brings out the best in your Lamy!
Al-Stars are that extra bit more durable, attractive, and fancy compared to a standard Safari, and they hold a lot of ink, are extremely comfortable, and come in awesome colours. Sweet pens! (Posted on 10/07/2015)
