Includes one blue Lamy T10 cartridge. A variety of ink refill colors and Lamy coverters available.
Lamy is a world-famous pen company headquartered in Germany. Their Vista line consists of high quality pens made of clear non-fade plastic and self-sprung 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. 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've had mine for about eight months now, and it seems to have settled for a
consistently fat line, no matter what ink I have in it (using the converter. All
parts seem well made, and the pen is comfortable to hold, though with the cap
posted it seems rather ludicrously long, and even a bit top-heavy. I usually
just clip the cap to my pocket or onto the rings of my sketchbook. Filling and
cleaning are easy and uneventful. I honestly have no idea where they get off
calling this "extra fine", because it would be at least a medium, or even broad,
for my purposes. Others have had different experiences, though, so perhaps there
is some inconsistency.
Just got mine delivered to me.
The pen write smoothly.
One thing bothers me though, the ink seep into the front part of the pen.
Although it is not leaking out, it stay there on the clear casing and I do not
know how to clean it.
Is this a sign of defect?
Any suggestion to clean it?
I love my extra fine nib Lamy Fountain Pen. It writes smoothly with no skipping.
I love the way it looks, I bought the clear body. It looks better in person than
on line. I've shown it to my daughter and she wants one. I will gift her one
cause this one is mine.

Great choice for a fountain..., September 21, 2010
I've been using one of these pens for awhile now. While the I originally
purchased was too scratchy for my tastes, I was able to simply purchase a
replacement nib (in black!) and swap it out. Since then, this pen writes
smoothly and comfortably.
