  This pen is absolutely..., April 13, 2011
This pen is absolutely marvelous! During a trip to Germany a few years ago, I noticed that EVERYONE had fountain pens. Even though they were super cool, I didn't buy one while I was there. However, my interest in fountain pens was recently restored, and the LAMY Safari looked like the perfect one. I just received my pen today (thanks to JetPens fast shipping!), and it writes like a dream - no globbing, overflow, or bleedthrough, is sturdy, and looks pretty badass with the lemon yellow body, too. The extra fine nib is perfect for my cursive writing, but I'll have to get used to not pressing so hard like I do with my ballpoint pens, but I can tell that this pen will serve me well -- can't wait to buy some inks and a converter. Thanks JetPens!

  This was my first fountain..., April 20, 2008
By Ngrefe
This was my first fountain pen and I've been extremely impressed with both its form and function. My handwriting tends to be rather small and, as such, I was worried that a fountain pen would be practically useless for my writing style. Much to my delight, the EF Lamy Safari performs flawlessly. It's puts down a nicely thin line without skipping and my writing is entirely legible. It is, however, slightly scratchy, but this is fine. This is my favorite pen at the moment.

  Everything about this..., April 30, 2011
Everything about this pen is awesome... Except for the grip. The grip is made so that you must write with it in the "proper" way of writing. that is with your thumb and index holding it at the front. If you don't write this way, then you will find this frustrating after a while. I'm going to get rid of mine soon because I just cant stand it anymore. And I would rather write with the pen upside down then actually use it right side up.

  Plastic barrel snapped..., December 6, 2010
By bill
Plastic barrel snapped in half on me, so do not keep it in your back pocket. I do like that the ink flows smoothly (using Noodlers Inks anyways), the clip is strong, and it feels good in my hand. I find the extra fine nib writes more like a fine/medium.

  I purchased this pen..., June 23, 2009
I purchased this pen a while ago, and I have to say, I'm a little depressed.
I too have small handwriting, but in return, have had other fountain pens
(three others to be exact). The ink tends to smear everywhere instead of
sitting still in one place. You need to have something under the paper you
are writing on. The nib is shaped different than different fountain pen nibs,
so its something to get used to. If you write with the cap on the end of the
pen, its too long if you have small handwriting like I do. I also bought a
five-some of Lamy black ink, and I'm even less satisfied with the ink than the
pen. It turns a light Grey instead of that dark black that you start out with.
I much prefer the cheaper, smaller, better shaped nib, Kaweco Ice Fountain Pen.
Look into those!!!!

Peace Out~~~
