Lamy Al-Star Dark Purple with medium nib. Ah, the power of a name. I have always slightly disapproved of this pen because Lamy called it “purple,” and it’s just not my idea of purple. But I like it as a maroon or burgundy pen.
Anyway I’m using it to test KWZ Maroon, a very nice ink.
I’ve never really like the Al-Star as much as the Safari. But it’s starting to grow on me. Aluminum is neat.
