DescriptionSpecifications
Life is a jungle, and the Lamy Safari pen can take you through it one stroke at a time. The Safari was voted as Best Pen Under $100 in Stylus Magazine's 2007 review and is one of the most popular lines of Lamy, a world-famous pen company headquartered in Germany. The body is made of sturdy and colorful ABS plastic and features a flexible brass wire clip and comfort molded grip section.

The Lamy conveniently refills with ink cartridges. There’s no need to push in cartridges, just insert cartridge and twist the barrel, and the pen tightens to puncture the cartridge itself.

This pen includes one Blue Lamy T10 cartridge.

I always wondered about...
February 16, 2011
I always wondered about the shape of this pen–in photos, it looks awkward. Hold it in your hand, though, and you'll discover the extremely well-thought-out, svelte design that made me reconsider many pens I have loved for years (and I'm stubborn!). My only complaint is that it becomes top-heavy when the cap is posted, but it's a minor gripe considering the excellent writing quality and a price that mortals can afford. Subtle details will come to light the more you use it, and I'm considering getting a ballpoint too. Stop wondering–you should own one of these!

This pen is wonderful, from the high-quality plastic to the super smooth nib, this thing has blown me away completely. This is a must buy for anyone looking to switch to a fountain pen, but doesn't have very much money. Also shipping from Jetpens was very fast and there were no issues at all. This was a great first purchase and probably many more will ensue...

The pen so nice I bought it twice (I have this one and the white and chrome F point).

I love the triangular grip on this pen. I have large-ish hands -- for perspective, I can stretch an octave and a key on a baby grand piano -- and I find the Lamy exceptionally comfortable. It's lightweight, and I honestly don't have too much of a problem with the cap when posted, though it is a bit of extra weight.

The nib is stiff and isn't the smoothest nib I've ever written with (that distinction goes to my Namiki Vanishing Point), but it is exceptionally consistent and I almost never get any scratching or feathering. I write on cheap looseleaf paper most of the time, as I'm a student, and I honestly have no complaints. It's well worth the price as it's almost completely indestructible -- I use it for that reason alone much more than some of my other pens.

Really I couldn't find anything bad about this pen it dosn't feather or bleed through when you write, and one of my favorite things is the grip it fells great in your hand.
