I am really reconsidering the Lamy Safari

In response to Jamerelbe, I haven't noticed much weight difference between any of the Safaris vs. either the al-Stars or the one LX I own.  And I've got small hands so I have to be a bit careful of how heavy a pen is.  Not saying there isn't a difference between a Safari and an al-Star -- just that it hasn't been enough to affect my writing

The difference in weight is actually just one tiny gramm.

A quick check confirms that the AL-Star is *significantly* heavier than the Safari - 22g vs 17g 😁.  Which of course means they're both (almost) absurdly light.  Maybe it's just my imagination, but the AL-Stars feel a *tiny* bit more substantial to me - but I tend to favour Safaris because of their cheaper price and added durability.

Ok, it was 5 gramms. Guess my brain isn't functioning right. 😁

No dramas, they're both pretty light either way!
