Description
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 chrome 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 is my fourth lamy EF and again it is a very good fp for the price. In fact, I don't even write using my more expensive pens because the Lamy's are just more dependable and always a smoooooth experience.

The Lamy Safari is every inch a writer's pen.
I'm not generally a fan of cartridge-filling, and I found the included Lamy ink to be a little pale. I bought the converter too, thankfully, and use this with Rohrer & Klingner permanent blue, which is working splendidly.

The nib is as hard as nails, but not scratchy. It's not the smoothest nib I've ever used (not by a long shot), but there's not too much tooth or anything. This pen is how I figured out that I like a really really REALLY hard nib.

If you encounter any skipping or scratchiness, take the pen apart and rinse it out with a drop of dish fluid in water. I've been told that a little manufacturing grease can clot and clog up the pen.

This pen is my daily writer (I'm a student and write a ton), and I love it dearly. Very light in the hand, and the triangular grip doesn't bother me.

Completely worth the money.

By greenteagarden - See all my reviews
After all the rave reviews, I expected to love this pen. I *wanted* to love this pen. Unfortunately, it falls far short. The ink flow is inconsistent so the writing is scratchy. The pen itself is thick, which makes writing uncomfortable for me, especially when the writing with the cap on the other end. This makes my hand fatigue easily. So far, I have been unable to write neatly with this pen. This is a huge frustration. Had I not thrown the box away in my excitement I would have returned this in AN INSTANT. Absolutely disappointed and not worth the money I spent.

An awesomely good pen for its price.
This is my go to pen for taking out of the house, like school and work, as it is sturdy and definitely gets the job done well.
The only thing is that I find the extra fin nib to be more of a medium nib, that's just me tho.
It comes in a cool little box too, and who doesn't like a cool little box?

For the price this is OK fountain pen, which surprisingly came with better or more waterproof ink then the Noodler's 'bulletproof' ink and smudges much less and 'melts when wet less then Noodler's black bulletproof ink. I do not know why is Noodler's ink marketed as waterproff as it clearly it is not, but that is another subject.

Getting back to this pen, I was expecting a much thiner line [I ordered extra fine] but instead it is more like a medium stroke than extra fine especially if used on slck paper it willl give you broad strokes. Maybe i need to buy Japanese or pelikan FP with EF nib.

Nevertheless, this is a fine introductory fountain pen. My next FP will likely be Sailor 1911 or Pelikan 600 series when save few bux.
