Fountain pen for sale - Sep 2014

Silver Lamy AL-Star with EF nib, Z24 converter, and 1.1mm, 1.5mm, 1.9mm italic nibs - SOLD!

Clearing shop folks. My latest pen to go is my beloved Lamy AL-Star. I love this pen but, once again, it hasn't been getting much use since I got my Pilot Vanishing Point. So I'm selling it to fund future purchases.

My silver Lamy AL-Star comes with:

  • EF nib (black)
  • Z24 converter
  • 1.1mm italic nib
  • 1.5mm italic nib
  • 1.9mm italic nib

I am selling everything as a package because I don't feel like listing each nib separately and then charging for shipping individually (or worse, swallowing the shipping cost myself).

Read my review of the AL-Starhow I fixed the EF nib (which didn't write well out of the box), and how the italic nibs write. Also read up on how to completely disassemble the Z24 converter.

The EF nib writes smoothly after my fix, with just the tiniest hint of tooth. It's likely you won't even notice, and in addition it flows impeccably with any ink. The italic nibs wrote beautifully from the start.

The AL-Star itself is almost blemish free. If you put it under a magnifying glass you might notice a few tiny scuff lines from handling, but I took good care of it and it only left my home desk a couple of times.

Price for the whole package: $60 shipped (Paypal only)

Here's how the price breaks down for a new pen:
Lamy AL-Star: $37
Z24 converter: $5
3 x italic nibs: $13 x 3 = $39
Shipping: $5+
Total: $86

This is for the US only, sorry! If you can figure out a way for me to send this cheaply internationally, I'm open to suggestions. You will have to pay the full price of shipping and I'll still charge you $60 for the pen though.

I accept payment through Paypal only. Please send full amount. I believe you will have to use the "gift" option.
Pens are sold as-is. I've described them to the best of my ability. I'm not offering any warranty, and once money is exchanged and the package has shipped, no returns either.

If you are interested, please contact me via the email listed on the About/Contact page, and I'll supply you with a Paypal address to send the money.
