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.
|Length: 0:58 Mins|
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.Read more ›
I recommend this pen for someone first fountain pen, or for a fountain pen lover who wants an excellent "every day" pen.
The cap is made of the same ABS plastic with a metal clip, which is stiff enough to stay clipped but flexible enough to be clipped. It is also the heaviest part of the entire pen, so when you cap the pen and set it down, it won't roll past the clip (I think I had the Yafa roll away on me a couple times); I usually just set the pen down on the clip itself just because I can :P
What I really like is the two bevels in the grip section of the pen; it makes it easy to orient the pen without actually having to look at it (as opposed to having three bevels in other pens I've used) and makes it easy to re-grip the pen after loosely holding it to punch numbers into a hand-held calculator. Even though the grip section is plastic, it's actually quite comfortable surprisingly.
Even though the Yafa was doing the trick, I wanted something that wrote a bit finer. After watching the video review that compares the Lamy fine to a ballpoint pen, I thought it was what I was looking for, but it wasn't. It was actually the same width as the Yafa. I decided to keep it and use it some before moving to Lamy's extra fine.
I posted an image that compares the Lamy fine, extra fine, and .5mm mechanical pencil, just in case anyone was in between the fine and extra fine (I was one of them).
Despite disliking the line thickness, the Safari writes quite smoothly to my liking.Read more ›
