This is my second Safari...
February 8, 2013
This is my second Safari & third FP. My first FP was more expensive and more
trouble, and turned me off fountain pens for years. But after getting a
Charcoal Safari in Fine, which I immediately loved, I decided to order the Extra
Fine in Shiny Black. It is very shiny, I like the color much more than I
expected. The nib has a little more of a scratch than the fine- not in a bad
way. It has always laid down an even, smooth flow of ink (I'm using Mont Blanc
black from the Lamy converter).
Definitely get the converter.
The blue ink that comes in the cartridge is ok but not my favorite.
The Extra fine is not quite as fine as I want but is working really well.
Fantastic value for this price.
