I bought this converter...
, April 28, 2009
I bought this converter because I needed another Lamy converter and sadly there
were none. So I gave this one a shot even considering the price. It was worth
it. It may not be a perfect fit with my Lamy Al-Star, but it does the job
admirably. You can feel the difference in quality between this and the less
expensive converters - the seal inside is very good, the twist movement is much
smoother and tighter. My only complaint is that it doesn't hold as much ink and
any of my other converters - but it holds about as much as a typical small
cartridge. The price is a bit steep but I think it is worth it for the snazzy
looks, the strength and quality of the construction and the smoothness of
operation. The point of a converter is to not be disposable and this one isn't -
it's a keeper!
