Includes one blue Lamy T10 cartridge. A variety of ink refill colors and Lamy converters available.
Life is a jungle, and the special Lamy Safari pen can take you through it one stroke at a time. Lamy is a world-famous pen company headquartered in Germany. Their Safari line consists of high quality pens made of sturdy plastic and self-sprung metal clips.
Conveniently refillable with ink cartridges. No need to push in cartridges yourself, just insert cartridge and twist the barrel, and the pen tightens to puncture the cartridge itself. See how simple it is to refill the Lamy Safari fountain pen with a cartridge refill in the video below:
Great look, great design.
The Lamy Safari pen was voted as Best Pen under $100 in Stylus Magazine's 2007 review. See the pen on JetPens.com TV:
This pen is wonderful. I dont spend a ton of money (any really) on nice paper
and I have never had a problem writing with it. I've even been able to write on
napkins. What really impressed me about this pen was how durable it is. This
winter my pen fell out of my pocket in the snow and I thought it was lost and
was saving up for a new one. Thankfully, my finacee found it in the yard before
I actually made a purchase. Despite spending a couple weeks outside in various
weather conditions (Chicago. what can you do?) it worked exactly as it did
before I lost it. There were very minor scratches in the anodizing but much
less tha what I epected would happen. If you are considering this pen I would
definitely buy it. Writing with anything else (in the under $100 category) just
isnt the same.
Wonderful pen. The EF point is a little "dry" in the writing, and hasn't really
broken in yet. I'm using Nooder's Bay State Blue (the bluest blue I have ever
seen) and it seems to feed very well.
The pen is very sensitive to the kind of paper. If you use it on a high quality
paper, it is super smooth and wonderful (it's a dream on a Rhodia dotpad). On
cheap paper, it is very scratchy and seems to feed very differently. I think EF
nibs are more demanding of paper finish, while a F or M nib wouldn't be so
I was skeptical when I saw an American pen with a nib labeled as "extra fine,"
and with good reason - it is not. I was tempted to rate this three stars due to
misrepresentation on the nib size but it [does] write quite nicely for a
chunky-writer. I tend to write at about 1/8" text height so finding pens that
deliver fine lines and paper ruled accordingly is tough. If anyone reading this
is looking for a [real] fine nib - check out Sailor. I definitely have to note
the build quality though - this pen just feels like a workhorse fountain pen
when you pick it up; it's very solid for a budget fountain pen. If the
extra-fine nib were truly extra-fine... this would likely have been a five-star
pen for me, but it could pass for a medium-nib pen in some circles.
I always wondered about the shape of this pen–in photos, it looks awkward.
Hold it in your hand, though, and you'll discover the extremely
well-thought-out, svelte design that made me reconsider many pens I have loved
for years (and I'm stubborn!). My only complaint is that it becomes top-heavy
when the cap is posted, but it's a minor gripe considering the excellent writing
quality and a price that mortals can afford. Subtle details will come to light
the more you use it, and I'm considering getting a ballpoint too. Stop
wondering–you should own one of these!
I absolutely adore this pen. Holding it becomes so natural its like writing with
air. Never splotches, never skips. Sleek look and the lightweight design makes
it a perfect match for my rhodia webbie. awesome awesome awesome!
