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:

Not the fire-engine red...
Not the fire-engine red I was looking for hence the -2 stars (I really was hoping for a fire-engine or lipstick red.). I own several Lamy Safaris -- combination of good price and works great right out the box. Usually I find Lamy to be a wet writer especially in the M nib compared to Japanese FPs in M. The red body color of this pen is darker than I wanted, perhaps with a hint of orange (?) in this northerly (Chicago) winter morning light. Other than the body color not being what I hoped for, I love the function of all my other Lamy Safaris (charcoal, white, pink, etc :). You can really have fun trying other inks so make sure to get at least one converter.
