Includes one blue Lamy T10 cartridge. A variety of ink refill colors and Lamy converters available.
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 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 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.
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).
Writes very nicely. I save five star reviews for things which are unbelievably
great. This is just very good, and I'm not inclined to pay any more than this
for a fountain pen. I buy them to write with, not to display.
Writes very smoothly, and feels good in my hand. I got the extra-fine nib, and
absolutely cannot tell the difference between it and the fine nib on my Lamy
Safari in side by side writing. Not really important, as it's just about where
I want it for the kind of writing I do.
The fact that it seems a sturdier than the Safari justifies the extra money.
The Al-Star will see a lot of use.
