Forged of aluminum for alternately handsome ruggedness and dazzling brilliance, the Lamy Al-Star fountain pen series is smooth writing and hard working. Its silky smooth steel nibs are interchangeable and range in widths from extra fine to 1.9mm. Lamy ink cartridges come in myriad colors and all hold a lot of ink. Each fountain pen comes with one ink cartridge, but if you prefer filling from a bottle, you may also purchase a special Lamy converter for only $5 extra. Each Al-Star also features an ink reservoir window, so you always know when to refill your pen. Durability makes these pens ideal for travel and everyday use! Made in Germany.
