  1. I recently purchased a Lamy Safari as my second fountain pen. (My first is a Platinum Plaisir). I was surprised by the size of the Safari! It is much larger than I had thought judging by photos on websites. It is actually larger than my Platinum Plaisir which, heretofore was, I thought, large! It is a very smooth writer even with the fine nib. I am still getting acquainted with it having had it but 10 days. Mine is the white with a black nib. I think it looks clean and crisp. I am using a proprietary blue ink cartridge but did buy the Lamy converter.

  2. I have purchased four or five Lamy Safari fountain pens. The sculpted finger grip area makes this pen surprisingly easy on my arthritic hand. I can write forever. I forget how important this is, until I try writing with a different pen, one that I need to Work to use (wider grip and more pressure seem to be the things that limit my comfortable writing time). My adult son absconded with my first Lamy when I visited him in South America. It is his go to pen, too, as he sketches and draws continually. Consistent flow. Beautiful line. We both use Noodlers bullet proof black ink. Great combination.

    • Hi Gretchen,

      Thanks for sharing your experience with the LAMY Safari fountain pen. I’m glad to hear that the grip section makes writing easy for you!
