I purchased this with my Lamy Safari fountain pen, and I am glad I did. Using the converter allows me to use my choice of inks with my new pen. Operation is simple, twisting the top of the converter draws in ink through the nib. The converter also snaps securely into the pen, so there is no risk of it coming out.

This product does exactly what it should. No extra bells or whistles, and no buying extra ink cartridges.

The converter works very well, though I still use cartridges for the pens that travel in my handbag. I keep the converter in the LAMY that stays at home. If the converter holds up for ,say, 6 to 12 months,with no leaks, then I try it on-the-go - which is the real goal of the Safari pen. (I have two because the Safari is one of my favorite pens- lightweight, good tactile experience of pen to paper, and smooth ink flow.)

I wouldn't dream of using my Lamy Safari without one! I didn't care for the ink that comes in the cartridges. And the reason I went to a fountain pen was to prevent all the plastic waste from disposable ballpoint pens, so the disposable ink cartridges seemed like a waste.

These are very easy to use and refill - no mess, no inky fingers! Just dip the end into the ink bottle, then twist the red bit to move the plunger up and suck up the ink. Then it snaps right into the pen's barrel.

No leaks, no empty cartridge waste, and it lets you use whatever ink you like. (I'm smitten with Pelikan Brilliant Black.)

a certain part of my brain throws a party when small items work better than I expected. There was a party in my frontal lobe when i twisted the top and sucked up ink for the first time.

The good news is that this product does what it's supposed to: it allows you to fill your Safari from bottled ink, and it doesn't leak ink.

I gave this product 3 stars for a couple of reasons. The most important is the fact that the converter doesn't hold a lot of ink. I don't think it holds even half of the ink that comes in Lamy's cartridges. For me, this is fine because I don't buy ink cartridges. However, it is a real pain to fill this pen daily (full-time student). Since I originally intended to use the Safari with this converter I'm really disappointed. I've already found a replacement pen for that purpose. If they had designed this converter to utilize more of the space in the barrel that would have added at least one star to my review.

My other complaint about this converter is that there's always a pretty large air bubble after filling, no matter how careful I am. I don't know if this is truly a design flaw, or user error. I would like to imagine I know how to fill these things the right way since this isn't the only converter I have, but whatever...

So, this is still a decent value for the price of the pen and converter combined, but there are other fountain pens available for comparable prices that have larger converters. It's just something the company should consider.

I have a couple of these to go with my Lamy Safari fountain pens. They work very easily and come with a little instruction sheet showing you how to lock the converter in place. I've used these with my Lamy Safari fountain pens and Noodler's bulletproof inks, and they've always worked well. Since this currently isn't an item that is sold under Prime, you might want to get a few of these if you plan to get more Lamy pens in the future since shipping can be comparatively costly for the price of the item.

Edited 12/2010 to add: Currently, seller Pen Boutique IS offering this item with free shipping. They are a proven seller that I've had several good experiences with both directly and through Amazon. I would recommend you purchase from them if Amazon Prime is not offering this item.

Not much to say, does exactly what it says. A must for anyone using this type of fountain pen, no need to buy those pesky cartridges.

Pros: does not leak, allows me to use Noodles ink (which is a great mfg of ink) and easy to use and install.

Cons: does not hold as much ink as a cartridge so I end up refilling it about once a week or so.

All in all, I like it and have been using it for 2 months now with no problems. I have no reason to go back to cartridges, so I will keep using it!
