I have many Lamy Safari...
, June 20, 2014
I have many Lamy Safari pens, and always eagerly look forward to each year's
Limited Edition color. This year, like last year with the Neon Yellow, I was a
little hesitant about the neon color. But, again like last year, once I received
it and saw it in person I instantly loved it. The Neon Coral has immediately
become my new favorite - it's a gloriously bright and happy neon red, night and
day different from the normal pink color previously released. Pictures truly
don't do it justice.
Aside from the color, Lamy continues the quality and ease of use I've come to
know and love. It's a fantastic pen for beginners or those who love brightly
colored pens (which are increasingly rare in the fountain pen world let me tell
you). It is a sturdy material that doesn't make you feel overly concerned about
protecting it - it's hard plastic stands up to a lot. I definitely don't baby
mine - they get tossed from purse to purse to desk and everywhere in between.
And the F nib, which is my standard, always works reliably and without problems.
Sometimes I've had issues with EF nibs, and M or B nibs may be too big for most
everyday work writing or note-taking, but the F has worked every time for me, no
matter what - a smooth, slightly fat (Lamy nibs do run wider than say Pilots - a
Lamy F is more like a Pilot M) line every time.
Now if only Lamy would listen to the masses and finally make a purple color next
