May 30, 2011
I've been using Lamy Safari pens for years now and they are among the best, if you like a lightweight pen that flows smoothly, never blots or leaks, and looks good. I recommend the medium or fine nibs, but not the extra fine: it is scratchy and the ink doesn't flow well. However, Lamy's interchangeable nibs make changing easy and relatively cheap.

Ordered it on Monday, arrived on Thursday. Worked perfectly right out of the box, with the extra fine nib being big enough to give my writing some consistency without making it bulky.

Writing (with the lamy blue ink cartridge included) is incredibly smooth and unbroken, requiring only the contact of the pen on paper--no pressure.

I immediately noticed that the pen becomes top heavy when posted, but it is very light if the cap is left off. The grip forces my hand into the proper position for writing, managing to do in seconds what my mother tried to teach me years ago :)

I am definitely going to buy the converter for the pen and try it with some Noodler's ink.

Certainly a good pen, and I have to say I like the utilitarian look as well!

This is my first fountain pen, and after reading reviews from other sources, they said this was the best pen under $100 or something like that. And its been a great buy. I'm a forgetful person, so there would be times where I think I lost it, and my heart just dropped. I'm okay with dropping it all the time as well, since I am a clutz. I had always bought ballpoint pens, and the ink on this pen flows ten times smoother than the pilot gel pens you get at target. I'm also a student studying illustration, so this is great for art studies. I use it for everything, from writing, sketching, to drawing. Its useful to draw over graphite as well, because I know that it wont' take back in the graphite when I use it, unlike ballpoint. I love mine because it writes like a dream. I can lightly touch the tip, and it will still flow out smooth, so I don't need to strain my hands to press down hard. Really helpful for the people who press down to hard. You don't see much compression on the back of paper.

Be sure to check the nib when you get it. I somehow received the bold nib version of this (even though the box clearly says "EX FINE"). The bold version has a "B" on the nib, whereas the extra fine has "EF" on the nib.

The line compared to an old lamy was vastly different. Both EF but this one was scratchy while the old one was smooth.
