Giveaway: Lamy AL-Star Copper Orange from Goldspot Pens!


My friends over at Goldspot pens recently sent me a couple of pens for review purposes, and recently included this lovely little Lamy AL-Star. This is the 2015 Special Edition AL-Star in Copper Orange. I am not a huge fan of the Lamy Safari/Vista/AL-Star pens (mainly due to the triangular grip), but I do have to say that this one is a real beauty. (I was half-tempted to keep this one and giveaway my old blue AL-Star instead…and I suppose if you won the giveaway and really would prefer to have the blue, that could be arranged.)


The Lamy Safari/Vista/AL-Star are some of the most commonly recommended workhorse pens for first-time pen users, and it’s easy to see why. They are built like tanks. They are consistent writers and have easily interchanged nibs to suit your writing style. They are bright and colorful, and if you don’t mind the triangular grip, quite comfortable.

Special thanks to the wonderful folks at Goldspot Pens for providing this Lamy AL-Star for a Pen Habit Giveaway!

This Lamy AL-Star, provided by Goldspot Pens, features a medium nib, and includes a cartridge of the 2015 Special Edition Copper Orange Ink (which is one of my favorite new inks for this year–easily one of my top three orange inks of all time.)  I will also be throwing in a Lamy converter, so you can use this pen with your ink of choice.

The winner will be selected on October 31, 2015 by Rafflecopter, and I will announce the winner shortly thereafter. (Please see the entry box below for the terms and conditions.)
