Lamy Al-Star Fountain Pen

The Lamy Al-Star is the aluminum-body version of the Lamy Safari. It’s a popular pen but the aluminum isn’t always as good an option as the Safari’s plastic.

The Lamy Al-Star is also similar to the Lamy Lx,which it the luxury version of this pen. The differences are limited to aesthetics though as the to pens are functionally the same.
