My second style of FP....
November 4, 2014
My second style of FP. I have two Lamy Safaris (medium and extra fine), so this
pen is a big change for me. I went through the included ink cartridge quickly,
and bought a bottle of ink to use with the pressure plate converter.
Unfortunately the ink I loaded into it was acrylic, and I was worried that I
just ruined the pen.
But this pen is a snap to clean if you're willing to take it apart. I looked up
a video on how to dismantle the nib and feed. Once apart I was able to clean out
all of the bad ink, and now it is working as well as it did when I first got it.
I think this is a great pen for an inexperienced user like me.
I also love the weight; it's not too heavy, but compared to the plastic Lamy
Safari it feels hefty. Haven't felt fatigued using it, and it is mostly used for
drawing/sketching. I might look for a different style of converter since I
refill it often, but that's just my personal preference. The pressure plate
style converter included works fine.
