Lamy is a world-famous pen company headquartered in Germany. Their Al-Star line consists of high quality pens made of aluminum, steel nibs and self-sprung metal clips.
Conveniently refillable with ink cartridges. No need to push in cartridges yourself, just insert cartridge and twist the barrel, and the pen tightens to puncture the cartridge itself. Great look, great design.

The best fountain pen...
The best fountain pen under $100. I think that's what Forbes said. Anyway, it's great! I'd recommend getting the converter though and finding a bottle of ink with a color unique to you. If you're gonna use a fountain pen, you might as well take advantage of the things that make it special. Though, by default it takes cartridges and require no more thought than a ball point pen for the most part. It's reliable, uses quality materials, and thankfully is available in an extra fine nib. I love mine.

I love the EXTRA FINE...
I love the EXTRA FINE nib! It is like a dream come true. It is a lot finer than the ordinary FINE nib Lamy, which has been my favorite fountain pen since I started collecting them. Yet the EXTRA FINE lamy is surprisingly smooth for the extra-fine point. My handwriting is quite small and fine, so this fountain pen is ideal for petit writing. I can highly recommend it for experienced fountain pen writers looking for a Extra fine nib. The pen itself is light even with the cap attached at the back. Lamy thank you for creating the Extra-fine nib, and thank you to jet pens for selling this Extra-fine product (No pun intended).

I must say I am impressed....
I must say I am impressed. Based on the reviews given so far are very accurate. I am a virgin to fountain pens and this is my first. I did as suggested and bought the z24 cartridge converter and twisted the little thingamajigger to suck up the ink into the cartridge. I got the noodler's bulletproof black. The tip is very fine and writes with precision. I am pleased.
