I decided to buy the Lamy Safari after hearing so much good about it on the Fountain Pen Network. Unfortunately, my pen is anything but the smooth writing experience I hoped for after all the positive comments.

The Safari is built pretty well as far as I can tell. The body seems sturdy, the finish hasn't gotten streaked up or dulled despite spending the last few weeks in my bag, and the clip does its job and isn't flimsy. I also don't really mind the triangular grip section. It doesn't really help me hold the pen, but it doesn't get in the way, either. The only gripe I have with the body is that the section is quite deep, so it's difficult to get a bulb syringe down in there to flush the pen between fillings.

The nib, on the other hand, is another story entirely. This is simply the worst-writing pen I own, period. The nib feels extremely scratchy and sounds like something between a felt-tipped marker and raking fingernails down a chalkboard as I write. It also refuses to lay down ink in certain directions. For example, it's impossible to draw a complete circle, and it stalls out on most downstrokes.

I'm willing to accept that I may have gotten a lemon, but that leaves the possibility that whoever else orders this pen could, too. I suppose I'll eventually try ordering another nib or sending it back to Lamy for an adjustment, but that means this Safari will have cost me nearly $40. To me, that's far more than this pen is worth, even if a new nib ends up being smoother.
