The Lamy Al-Star Ballpoint is the beautiful metal counterpart to Lamy’s classic plastic 1981 Safari design. It shares the metal spring action clip, the ergonomic triangular grip, and a waterproof blue ink Lamy M16 medium refill which will write for around 6km (three times the average re-fill).
It also shares the click action which single handed operation because it avoids two handed twisting or cap removal. Needless to say, it’s Lamy so definitely won’t bleed or leak
What makes the Lamy Al-Star unique is something that can’t be seen on a web image. It’s utterly gorgeous. The body is in shimmering anodised metal – just like nanna’s old set of picnic cups. It’s durable, very light, and prone to showing age in a gracious and charming way.
