The translucent, molded grip section guides fingers to their proper position while allowing a sneak peek into the inner workings of the pen. Made in Germany.
The LZ50 nib is a reliable performer with a smooth flow that tends to lay down a broader line than other Western-style nibs. While the AL-Star fountain pen only includes one blue ink cartridge to start, you may opt to fill the pen with bottled ink using the LZ24/LZ28 converter (sold separately). The cutout on the side of the barrel allows one to see the remaining ink in the pen. *Please note that all Lamy pens are tested with Lamy blue ink and often have traces of the ink color on the feed and nib when shipped to customers.*
