writes better than my $40 pilot fountain pen. and i don't have to adjust my hand to get ink on paper. i love this pen. it's so lightweight and quality is real good. would be nice if they plugged up the hole so it can be converted into an eyedropper though. otherwise, it's a very solid fountain pen!

Great pens, writes well. Too light and while the guide indentations are helpful, attempting subtle adjustments feels off because of the prominence of the grip.

I have tried several other fountain pens and this is by far my favorite. The ink flows smoothly, my hand doesn't get tired from using it, and it is the perfect weight. I am looking forward to buying several more so I can have them for home and work.

Very good pen for the price. Use it for taking notes in my college courses.

Really nice. No problem getting the ink to flow that you might get with cheaper fountain pens. I prefer the extra fine nib slightly to the fine nib for most situations. But the fine nib is nice to have too.

All around wonderful pen. The grip looks a bit odd at first but, it is actually really comfortable to use. I enjoy writing with this pen so much that I completely emptied the cartridge that comes in it within the first day! For only 28 dollars.. you cannot go wrong with the Lamy Safari.

While this pen worked very well for me for about a year it eventually started to leak. Around the nib, at first I thought it was nib creep but upon further inspection it appears there is a crack in the feed. I really like this pen otherwise. It served me well in writing rapid-fire notes and I like it's shape and it's feel in my hand, if I was sure it would not leak I would buy another in an instant.

I see people all the time talking about how great the other pens they have are
but that they use the Lamy all the time because its writes so well and is inexpensive
so why bother with the more expensive ones? Well I have several of the other brands
$$$ and I use the LAmy more than any of the others. It doesn't dry out and writes
great I have no complants at all about it. If you are new to fountain pen and are looking
for a starter pen to see how you like it pick a Lamy.

This is the first fountain pen I've owned that cost over $16. My past experience is with the Platinum Preppy and the Sailor Candy. This pen is a whole world of awesome, especially when comparing it to the nasty Sailor Candy pen.

I am using the Lamy Safari Fountain Pen with the fine nib, the converter, and Waterman ink. The pen flits easily across the page whether I'm writing slowly or quickly. The only time I've had skipping is when I was using it on a card purchased at Papyrus - obviously it was the stock and not the pen. I probably wrote twenty pages in my journal within 1.5 days of purchasing this pen because I just wanted to keep experiencing it.

The pen looks like a $3 office pen. There is nothing that screams, "Awesome pen!" when you look at it. I tried the one that looks just like this but has an aluminum body, and that pen was far too heavy for me to be happy. If it needs to be cheap looking in order to be an ideal writing instrument for me, so be it :-) I just hope no one walks away from my desk with it when I use it at work. It has a very similar appearance to one of the cheap brands they purchase for office supplies.
