Description
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 Lamy Safari pen was voted as Best Pen under $100 in Stylus Magazine's 2007 review. See the pen on JetPens.com TV:

Awesome! I have a decent amount of FPs and always seem to use Lamy Al the most. This is likely due to its consistent line in all Lamys I bought so far (F si always F, Medium is always medium etc) and is the most comfortable pen ever for holding and writing for many hours. I write and draw with Lamy Al Star the most. Have few of them with different ink colors also and often give them for presents to friends, family etc.

I would love to have the same pen in piston filled style so do not have to deal with cartriges and converters (such as famous Pelikan pens) and a twist in cap as I do not trust click caps when placing in pants or shirts (had no problems yet with leaks though).

5/5

Verified Purchase
The fountain pen is classy and beautiful to behold. It comes with a blue ink cartridge. I inserted the cartridge and wrote. Very smooth, although occasionally scratching -- probably because of the extra fine nib. A wonderful pen for the price!

This is a smooth-writing pen in a beautiful color. You do have to be careful with it not to scratch the metal (I have a little scratch in mine). It's nice to hold. The pen is a little heavy with the cap posted. I generally like to write with the cap posted, but I will sacrifice it for the comfort of this pen. My next purchase will probably be a Lamy Joy calligraphy.

I keep wanting to like the Lamy pens, but the way the pen is shaped is uncomfortable for me. I am left-handed, but I hold the pen the usual way, not curling my hand over. The bumps on the pen which are very comfortable when I hold the pen right-handed are awful for left-handed writing, so I end up holding the pen on the bumps, not the indentations. If I could rotate the nib a millimeter or two, I could hold the pen as designed and it would be wonderful. As it is, I continue to use the Lamy pens I have because they are a pleasure to write with.

I've found that Lamy pens have a "wet" nib with a generous ink flow. The extra-fine nib is best for me on the kinds of paper I use.
