Description
Pen includes one blue Lamy T10 ink cartridge. A variety of ink refill colors and Lamy converters available.

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 chrome 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.

If I could give more...

If I could give more stars, I would. The Lamy Safari is by far my favorite pen in my small collection.

Firstly, I didnt use the blue ink that came with it. The ink I used was one of the turquoise cartridge refills by Lamy. I also bought violet, but I haven't yet used it. That said, Lamy ink is, in my experience, the best I own. Even better than some of the more expensive bottled ink. When I first wrote on the thin pages of my Moleskine notebook, I thought, "This ink is obviously going to bleed through. It's darker than the inks I usually use, and the ink flow is better." I tried it anyways, and I was amazed to see that there was no bleeding at all, even at places I let my nib rest a bit longer than usual. It kept the same color and consistency throughout the line, and it all dried evenly.

Even more surprising was how amazingly well the pen fit my hand. If you hold your pen as most do, it feels like an extension of your arm. My thoughts flow from brain to nib more smoothly than they do from my brain to my mouth! And the way it writes... smoother than silk! The feel is indescribable.

I'll be buying my best friend one of these for her birthday. How could I not? It is a truely required pen for everyone!

I was looking for my very first fountain pen. I did not want to spend a lot in case I decided it wasn't for me and decided to try this Lamy Safari. I purchased it with the converter so I could use other inks.

PROS:
- Writes smooth! It's like butter! I haven't had any issues with skipping.
- The blue ink cartridge that came with it is a soft blue but was surprised that it didn't bleed through the cheap notebook paper.
- Lightweight
- Has a window to see ink level
- Converter works as described

CONS:
- I do not hold a pen the traditional way. I hold it using my thumb, index and middle finger. It hurt to write for extended periods due to the grooves on the pen.
- I contacted customer service to see if they would take it back if I flushed the ink out completely. They said that they do not take back any pens that have been used (ink passes nib). I only used the blue cartridge after they refused to take it back.

* Note that the fine nib writes like a medium. I prefer fine - medium point, so I was with the size.

I managed to make it work by getting a patterned sheet of duck tape and made a holder that I can just slip on and off the pen. The holder takes away from the elegance but at least I can use it now.

I bought this pen around...
I bought this pen around a year ago, and I've used it pretty much every day. It writes like a dream, and drawing with it's pretty good. Replacing the cartridges is very easy, which is good, since this pen seems to go through a good amount of ink. During my heaviest periods of use, I probably replace the cartridge once a month or so. (Note that the ink in the standard Lamy cartridges isn't waterproof. A converter can solve that though.) Also, the nib can be changed out fairly easily. I like the Fine size, though I don't actually find it to be particularly fine, probably around 0.7mm. Overall a great everyday pen at a great price. (I paid about ten dollars more for mine.)

It's okay. Just okay....

It's okay. Just okay. The fine nib is awfully fine. The nib feels stiff and slightly scratchy. The pen feels high quality though. The converter works great. Honestly I prefer the cheap Pilot disposables because of their thick line, smooth feel, and rapid ink flow.

I also like my Waterman better.
Yet this pen is superior to any of the cheap Chinese pens I've tried.
