Includes one blue Lamy T10 cartridge. A variety of ink refill colors and Lamy converters available.
Life is a jungle, and the special Lamy Safari pen can take you through it one stroke at a time. Lamy is a world-famous pen company headquartered in Germany. Their Safari line consists of high quality pens made of sturdy plastic and self-sprung chrome metal clips.
Conveniently refillable with ink cartridges. No need to push in cartridges yourself, just insert cartridge and twist the barrel, and the pen tightens to puncture the cartridge itself. See how simple it is to refill the Lamy Safari fountain pen with a cartridge refill in the video below:
Great look, great design.
The Lamy Safari pen was voted as Best Pen under $100 in Stylus Magazine's 2007 review. See the pen on JetPens.com TV:
I don't think you can wrong with a Lamy, particularly the Safari. The problems
the reviewer below had are rare. I've purchased 5 different Safaris, including
the white model - which I love - and had no trouble. The pen is of solid make
and design, durable, fun. With some fountain pen experience, I imagine any
trouble with the nib could be easily fixed with just a few tweaks. Don't let an
overall review score scare you away from this one. It's a fantastic pen.
This was purchased for my mother after trying my Safari matte-black pen she
wanted one of her own. To say she's not tech savvy would be an understatement
(sorry, mom, if you ever read this). She was a big fan of fountain pens "back
in the day" but was annoyed by the mess involved with inking them. I showed her
the cartridge and how easy it was to replace and that made her like it even
more. By the time she was trying mine I already gave up on the blue cartridge
it comes with and switched to the blue-black which I bought a pack of. She also
happened to really like the blue-black color.
When it came in the next time I visited her I brought it completely unopened and
showed her how to add the cartridge (I bought her a pack of the blue-black and
that's what she initially used) and it's been working great.
She's gone through a couple of the cartridges now and has had no issues with it.
She uses it pretty much daily as her main pen. I don't think she's bothered
cleaning it once yet either. I told her it would be good to just run it under
some water and let it dry overnight and that's really all the maintenance you
need to do. So I guess the biggest pluses for her are it's easy to replace the
ink, low maintenance, and it doesn't cost much (of course I bought it for her as
a gift but since I showed her the site to choose a color she knows how much they
cost). I'm pretty sure it stays at home so no feedback on how well it takes to
banging around in a purse.
Bad Pen - worse (so called) customer service. This pen never worked as well as
expected. I called the company and was told to send them the pen along with a
postage and handling fee of $9.50. Yeah - I don't think so. The pen only cost 25
bucks. This is my first and last Lamy. Buy a pack of Pilot Varsities. You get a
full set of pens for half the price and they write like a dream. Lamy is a WASTE
