Here it is! The newest Lamy Al-Star, in Pearl.
It’s really more of a champagne color, almost an exact match for my and Rachel’s two (that’s right, two) gold Pontiac Azteks:
It’s a pleasant color, nothing flashy, but just pleasant. It’ll come available from Lamy with a steel nib in extra-fine through broad, but you can swap the nibs (check out my video here) to get a black extra-fine through broad, or a steel 1.1mm, 1.5mm, or 1.9mm italic. It comes with a single Lamy Blue cartridge, but can accept a Z24 or Z26 converter for use with bottled ink.
These pens are supposed to be available in the US by early-March, check around for availability in other countries. They’ll be priced the same as the other Al-Stars, list price of $47 (sells for $37.60 on GouletPens.com). They technically aren’t a limited edition, they’re considered a part of the regular line. So there’s no huge rush to pick one up…unless you just can’t wait 😉
What do you think? I’d love to know…
