Lamy Safari: re-trying it

2023-07-20 00:00

I first tried the Lamy Safari as my second fountain pen many years ago. It’s probably more or less 10 years since then.

Recently I decided to give it another shot. Partly because my views and preferences have changed a lot since then. And the colors (for the Safari and AL line) is much better (but why can’t I get a fun Lamy 2000?!) than some (looking at you Pilot…).

So, I ordered a Pink one, plus a converter and a replacement EF nib because I didn’t find one with a nib I wanted.

The pen itself is great. Looks kind of goofy, the pink wasn’t really the kind if prefer, but still better than having a black pen.

My views on the grip section have changed and kind of not in the last 10 years. I don’t have it as much as I did back then, and I don’t deem it unusable. But I still find it to be a bit annoying.

The EF nib is good, but I’d prefer it if it actually felt like a real EF nib and not more like something between a F and M.

I will probably get more of them, when I see a cool color.

And the converter is great, sits really well in the pen, is well made and has room for plenty of ink.
