Somehow, I find some humor in the fact that this pen is so well rated, yet most reviewers take care to point out that it isn't the prettiest, most overpriced, or fanciest pens around. Unlike many companies, Lamy makes pens and pencils. They don't use pretentious euphemisms for pens like those other companies, nor do they charge 10x-100x what the pens are worth. They do make awesome pens like the Safari, which are indestructible and feel good in the hand, and they make some incredibly smooth nibs.

The Safari does make an awesome starter fountain pen, but it's a starter pen that'll last you your entire life. I recommend a Fine or Medium nib if you're new to a fountain pens. You can even buy spare nibs for the Lamy so that you can swap between different sizes.

The Safari is the entry-level "school" fountain pen in Lamy's product line, and it shares the attributes of most Lamy pens: they're functional, sturdy, and entirely unpretentious. Most low-end fountain pens from other manufacturers are either cheaper versions of their more expensive models, or intentionally tarted up to look like more expensive pens (Waterman's Phileas with its faux art deco styling and printed marbling pattern comes to mind.) The Safari, on the other hand, is a clean, simple, and unadorned original design.

The construction of the Safari is bulletproof. It's made of ABS plastic, the nib is a steel point that's very easy to swap out, and both the Lamy standard cartridge and the optional converter hold a ton of ink. The clip is a bent wire, like an oversized paper clip, and when you put a Safari in your pocket, it'll stay right where you placed it. The Lamy steel nib is somewhat of a standard among their pens--the same nib that's on the Safari can be found on their more expensive Studio, Accent, CP1, and half a dozen other models. It just pulls straight off the feed for cleaning or replacement, and you can swap it out in five seconds for a different size. (The standard Lamy nib is inexpensive and comes in many nib sizes, from extra-fine to broad, and they even make calligraphy versions in three different widths.)

For a starter pen, the Safari represents the best value on the market. The nibs are uniformly good, the pen is damn near impossible to kill (it was designed for rough-and-tumble school use), and it can be had in many different colors. With the optional converter, you can use the many bottled inks out there, which is half the fun of writing with a fountain pen.

First, let me say that I love fountain pens--all types, but especially Sheaffers. A colleague of mine turned me on to Lamy pens and they've become my workhorses.

I teach English so I grade many, many papers and I refuse to write with a boring pen. I used to use my antique shaeffers until a student almost dropped one. I had to have a daily pen that was, well, near disposable. I remembered the Lamy and ordered a Safari. Now, if something happens to it, I don't have a stroke. Plus, the broad nib has a wonderful ink flow!

I give them as gifts. They are a good pen to start using as they are very forgiving.

Do they write as well as my older pens? Nope. Are they more user-friendly? Yup. (Think mid 60's Jaguar E-Type versus 2005 Honda Civic. Which is more fun to drive? Which would you drive to the grocery store? Get my point?)

Bottom line: It is a $25 pen that you'll use more than your $100+ antique pens.

I have been a fan of fountain pens since I first discovered them as a kid. It's been a long learning curve, and while there are many great pens I enjoy from Waterman and others, the Lamy Safari Medium is my overall favorite for everyday use. I had two a few years back (sort of an oriental red color and an aluminum finish), and LOVED them, but both were stolen a couple years back. A hard economy made buying a new one out of my reach for a couple of years, but as soon as I was flush again, I made it a point to see if the Safari was still available. I was delighted to find that it was, and quickly placed an order for a medium point nib with a blue body. And the new pen is just as wonderful as I remember. Some things I specifically enjoy about this pen for everyday fountain pen use:

1) Durable Body - not all fountain pens were designed for the rigors of every day, work-a-day life. Enamel bodies can be easily scratched. Some plastic bodies don't hold up to bangs and crunches. This plastic body is TOUGH and wears really well.

2) Durable / Smooth Nib - Gold trimmed nibs are very fancy and wonderful, but not really appropriate for my work environment (I'm a technical writer). The iridium tip on the Lamy is very strong and delivers a surprisingly smooth, easy flowing, even line. I speak only of the medium nib, as it's the only one I've tried.

3) Ink Window - Lamy built a small window into the body of their pen to aid in the process of determining how much ink you have left; a feature missing from some of my favorite fancier pens, requiring that I unscrew them to see how much ink is left.
