Product Description

LAMY AL-star colours

LAMY AL-star – The light aluminium-experience.

The Lamy AL-star is the attractive, young writing instrument which satisfies even the highest requirements. With distinctive grip and spring-loaded metal clip.

Aluminium is a lightweight hightech material, whose excellent utility properties are confirmed not only by the drivers of top-of-the-range cars, but also by the many young and young-at-heart people who write with a LAMY AL-star.

If you also have a penchant for modern technology, you will certainly be impressed by this robust and yet elegant writing instrument. Thanks to its particularly striking, self-sprung metal clip, for instance. And, of course, the transparent grip section which permits an insight into its mechanical interior.

The original, only natural coloured LAMY AL-star has blossomed into one of Lamy's most popular model families. It offers all the important writing systems. And with the regular addition of new cool metal surface colours it ensures that things never get boring on desks and gift presentation tables around the world.

The LAMY AL-star is made of feather-light robust aluminium, anodised in various colours.

Designer: Wolfgang Fabian


 

LAMY AL-star systems

Available Writing Systems

The LAMY AL-star is available as ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil, fountain pen and rollerball pen.

Fountain pen

Fountain pens support individual handwriting more than any other writing instrument. Whether you are seeking to develop good handwriting or want to sign letters and contracts in style, or simply prefer the individual character of handwritten news to the anonymity of e-mails.

Mechanical pencil

Pencils are the most popular, uncomplicated writing tools: Perfect for making notes, sketching, and dictation. And if something should go wrong, one can simply erase it.

Basically, a Lamy mechanical pencil can be operated as easily as a ballpoint pen. Just press until the lead point appears – and simply write. Or sketch. Or draw. If the lead refill is used up, just press once more – and then you're ready to go again .

Almost all Lamy mechanical pencils have an eraser tip at the top end of the body, just under the removable push button. For easy and chemical-free corrections.

Ballpoint pen

As a long-lasting, reliable writing system, it is one of the most important products of our daily lives.

On the side: in compliance with ISO 12757, Lamy ballpoint pens refills do not contain any toxic chemicals and are therefore environmentally compatible . In addition, they are waterproof, which is important in particular for the signing of contracts and when displaying receipts and copies .

Rollerball pen

Lamy rollerballs are a good alternative to fountain pens or ballpoint pens. Combine the best of the two classic categories: Our rollerball pens are as easy to operate as ballpoint pens . And they have a similarly beautiful typeface to the fountain pen and offer a very high level of writing comfort .


 

The nib

All Lamy fountain pen nibs are equipped with a high-quality iridium ball.

The choice of the nib grade is dependent on the personal handwriting and the writing position. For left-handers there are special LH nibs available which are minimally bevelled as the fountain pen is not pulled by left-handers but rather pushed.

Rounded nibs

Rounded nibs are common favourites. All-round nibs with a completely rounded tip. Because of the roundness no tilting is possible when writing. This is the bestselling nib grade.

LH mLH nib
Straight nibs

With these nibs, the fountain pen must be held upright, without tilting or turning, for the ink flow to be steady. The iridium ball has a straight cut.

I am a professional writer and I need a reliable and robust pen that will go the distance. This is a very attractive pen with a nice nib and has become one of my favourite tools of the trade. There are broadly two types of fountain pen--the fancy ones with gold nibs and the practical ones designed for getting the job done. This is a practical pen but also looks stylish. It is also a decent size for an adult. For a writer, it is ideal. So these pens are certainly not just for school kids.

I am really enjoying using this pen; it is comfortable in the hand and produces a pleasing, flowing style of writing. My handwriting is usually very scruffy but it has definitely improved through using this pen. I would happily buy this pen as a gift for someone and am probably going to buy a few more, in different colours for myself. I would recommend it.Lamy Al-Star Fountain Pen

As part of my job, I have to do a ton of book marking for hours on end. I have had one of these Lamy fountain pens for ten years now and it is as good as it was on the day that I first bought it. I have fat fingers, and it fits my hand perfectly. It makes my handwriting look good. It is perfectly functional and it is really cool to look at. It is the only pen I can use to mark books for hours which does not give me cramps. If anyone knows of a better pen, I'd like to know about it. I think this is simply the best fountain pen in the World (for me).

I personally prefer using the broad nib.

This lamy is very stylish and smooth. It writes really well and the metallic purple colour is very nice. It can be dropped a lot and it will still work. Also it has a very comfortable hold.

I discovered Lamy fountain pens through an online handwriting tutorial video. At a very late stage in life I feel my handwriting has deteriorated over the years. This pen was recommended as a good tool to practice and for every day use.
I am absolutely delighted by this pen and I have rediscovered the satisfaction of handwriting after many years of using a computer keyboard.
The grip is shaped with straight edges to improve the grip. You can have a choice of medium or fine nibs, I have just changed to a fine nib to suit my writing style. The ink flows very nicely and the action is very smooth.

Pen is supplied in minimalist card box, along with one blue Lamy ink refill. The finish is very smooth and modern: it feels like a quality items and looks more expensive than it is. The graphite colour looks particularly good: it looks a bit like titanium metal.

The pen is mainly made of aluminium, and is quite lightweight. The little 'capsule' shape in the barrel is a hole ( there one on both sides of the pen): this allows you to keep an eye on the ink level without opening it up. The cap is 'push to fit' and there is a subtle click to indicate that it is on properly. The clip is strong and springy: it should stay put in your pocket/ bag. The nib is stainless steel, and writes a nice wet, even line: no flooding, not scratchy. There is some flex in the nib ( which is a good thing), and it writes almost as nicely as my 'daily driver' pen: a Pelikan M200 (fine nib), which is high praise (the Pelikan is much more expensive). The sculpted (plastic) grip is very comfortable to hold for long periods of time ( I'm right handed).

This pen will take the Lamy Z24 converter ( less than £4), which allows the use of bottled ink instead of cartridges ( much cheaper, better variety of inks available).

Best pen ever. Full stop. Have tried other (including more expensive) fountain pens, but have always gone back to Lamy as their nibs just write to perfection! Colleagues often ask about my writing and how beautiful and clear they are - and yes, I've converted a few of them to try on this superb piece of writing technology. Couldn't ask for more especially as the price is amazingly affordable.
