Counterfeit Lamy?

About a year ago, I bought a Lamy Safari off of Amazon. It was the only second pen I ever bought, so I didn't realize that Amazon is notorious for selling fake pens. I wrote with it pretty regularly, had no problems, but on a whim I checked the same Amazon page that I purchased from. The seller was LAMY, but over half of the reviews complained that they were sent fakes.

 

That got me worried that mine was counterfeit, too. Looking at all the known indicators, my pens seems to pass the rest, but my worry comes when I compare it to my AL Star. I know they are different in width, but is the Safari supposed to be taller than the AL Star? Another thing I found, the body of the AL Star takes three turns to close, and the Safari 3.5. Is this normal among all authentic LAMY pens?

There is sub-forum meant specifically for Lamy pens. I think if you posted your question there, Lamy enthusiasts would asnwer you question in greater numbers.

And, why dont you also post detailed pictures of your Lamy pen? People will be better able to answer your question then.

Best of luck.
