I think this is the most beautiful color in the al-star series. Writes smooth. I fall in love with fountain pens again~

My first Lamy!

I love this pen; it does not bleed ink, and it starts right up, no matter how long you have gone between uses.

Lovely finish and great nib. It's one of Lamy's entry level pieces, but I like it more than other, more expensive pens I've seen and used. Seems the nibs are somewhat inconsistent with Lamy, but mine arrived writing smoothly and none too wet. I may have gotten the ace of the draw. Nevertheless, my experience merits each and every star. Considering ordering another since mine is pretty dinged up by consistent use.

I have this pen with the cartridge converter. I also own the Lamy Safari in a Fine nib.

"Extra Fine" is relative, I guess. When I ordered an extra fine nib, I was expecting something like 0.4mm-0.6mm, but this is larger than that. It's still entirely usable for filling in documents, but if you were hoping to do some ultra-tiny note taking or anything of that level of precision, this is likely not fine enough. For everyday writing, though, it should be okay.
Do NOT go for the "Fine" nib even if you are worried about scratchiness, unless you are aware that it's not fine at all (at least 1.0mm)

Otherwise, this pen is amazing. Smooth, beautiful, and the clip is sturdy enough that I don't worry that my fidgeting will be too much for it. The cartridge converter is easy to use, even for someone who is a first-time fountain pen user like myself!

I love this Fountain Pen! The color is absolutely beautiful, and the color also complements perfectly with Iroshizuku Yama-Budo. For the price you could not go wrong, solid German engineering and quality that you will enjoy. I have purchased one for my daughter as well and she loves it.

I love this pen. The extra fine nib is a little scratchy, but I am sure that it will smooth out with use.

The color is even more gorgeous in person. The nib is just like all the other Extra Fines I've received from Lamy, which is great. The Al-Star is definitely worth the extra money.
