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.
