I actually bought this in Black fine and medium points to write on Washi tapes.
Yes, it is bit scratchy and skippy to write on plastic surface etc...but works
great on Washi tapes. Color is very opaque which is great for writing on
colorful Washi tapes. I am considering to purchase another color.
Ehhhhh..... Not a pretty color. Ink is very smooth and flows great, but on the
wet side. As of all other J Herbin inks, shading is beautiful.... But the color
is nothing like in the writing sample. It's more like... Brownish dirty khaki
green. It reminds me of... Have you change any baby diapers? I won't say
Great starter Fountain pen!
Very inexpensive but sleek nice looking fountain pen perfect for newbies and
even for experienced fountain pen users! Some fountain pens looks bit "Old
people" but LAMY Safari comes in fun colors and much more modern shape. The
variety of nib sizes are great as well. I prefer extra fine nibs because I often
write in Japanese. This was my first fountain pen purchase and I ended up buying
three more! For the price, nibs are very smooth and reliable. I also enjoy it's
Italic nibs too! I bought a pack of Monteverde blue black cartridges and they
are great for my journaling with Moleskine notebooks! Highly recommended.
Yamadori is a nice deep green leaning towards blue. While it is a beautiful fun
color, still subtle enough to use for professional or formal occasion. It is
such an elegant color with some shading. Of course a beautiful color is really
important, but sometimes they are not the best behaving..... Yamadori? It's
pretty amazing. Flows so nicely and lubricate nibs just right. Ink dries pretty
quickly and make it suitable for a quick note taking as well. I have not
experienced any feathering in numbers of papers I tried so far. Many people like
Moleskine notebooks but they are notorious for fountain pen ink bleed through,
however with Yamadori, bleed through is very minimum as long as you use fine
( I use it in Lamy Al-star extra fine) I highly recommend this ink for anyone,
even for those who are not usually big on color inks other than typical blue
This ink has mixed reviews in various blogs etc... But I actually love it. With
my Lamy Safari with extra fine nib, this ink flows well and smooth. The color is
almost like gray blue, very beautiful color. What I love the most is the
beautiful shading, the very reason I love fountain pens! I also need to mention
that this is one of the few inks that do not bleed through on Moleskine
notebooks which is a huge deal.
I think this ink is reasonable and perform great with Lamy safari. I am so glad
that I picked up this ink though initially I selected it because it was
I recommend this to everyone who loves beautiful shading of Fountain pens!
Good fine point fountain pen for my moleskine.
I bought this along with Platinum Preppy Fine point in Blue black. This nib is
much finer than the one on Preppy fine nib.
Simple cute pen casing which is tiny bit juvenile looking, but good starter
fountain pen. It came with a black cartridge but I think I will buy blue black
to replace it. ( Cartrige comes with this pen but not installed, so you don't
have to use the black if you don't want to). Nib is so fine so can be little
scratchy, but still pretty smooth on my moleskine. Ink does not seek through on
the back of the moleskine page either.
Good beginer fountain pen!
Great Reasonable Fountain pen for my moleskine notes!
I love notebooks and pens, I may even say I am obsessed with them and have tons
of different kinds of notebooks and pens, but just never got into Fountain pens
because they are tend to be expensive and can be messy. Fountain pens also have
bad rep when it comes to using with Moleskine notebooks which I love. I bought
this pen just to try out for my moleskine notebooks and to my surprise! it
writes so smooth, no skipping and best of all, ink does not go through to the
back of pages which is a common issue with thin moleskine paper.
Blue black has a nice deep blue color and it dries quick with no feathering on
I may go back for other colors too!
This pen writes so smooth like gel, but ball point pen so no smudge. I love
that. The design is very comfortable in my hand and variety of colors make them
so much fun. I recently got them for my colleagues at work in all the different
colros and designs of this series and they all LOVE their pens.
The ink is very high quality and never fade or skip during the use. Highly
I liked the idea of eracable ink and got one just for fun, but I was pleasantly
surprised with how smooth it writes and now this is one of my favorite pen. I
find myself using this pen more than any other pen. Ink can be eraced pretty
clean so perfect for my monthly agenda book. I immediately got other colors as
well. My colleagues at work are now very curious about it too!
Great ink, so smooth and consistent. I love the feel of this pen as well as
look, but wish the refil was available in 0.5!!
I bough many of this series pens so waiting for Pilot to make a finer refil for
