Very smooth writing and ink flow.

I like a very fine line so I purchased a couple Lamy pens with extra fine (EF) nibs.

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.

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.

Line Size: Fine
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.

The Lamy Safari is not my favorite fountain pen. However, this is the only pen that I always have with me. Well, I actually have the clear version as well, so I always have one of those two with me. The quality of the nib is excellent and writes very well. It feels OK in your hand - not as nice as some of "finer" pens, but nice. It used to be that I kept my fountain pens at my desk and carried around a ball point pen clipped to my shirt. The reason was the price - I didn't want to risk losing a pen by leaving it somewhere. That changed when I discovered this pen. I still don't want to lose it, but at this price, I am willing to risk it. The payoff is having a very good fountain pen with me for whenever I need to write.

I recommend this pen for someone first fountain pen, or for a fountain pen lover who wants an excellent "every day" pen.

The Lamy Safari is an excellent pen: light, sturdy, attractive design that lets you monitor your level of ink. It's great if you like thick pens (I don't, but people do), and I should have gotten the fine tip rather than medium because I can empty a cartridge in eight pages of free-flowing ink.

On the other hand, it's a great pen if you're stuck with a bunch of cartridges that come from your checkered past: the sales rep says it can only handle Lamy-proprietary ink cartridges, but that's nonsense. Mine goes through Parker and Cross cartridges like nobody's business, with nary a mishap.

As someone that has never used a fountain pen before, I have found this pen to be simply phenomenal. It's comfortable to use and easy to hold thanks to designed grip. It's a great starter pen for those wanting to get into using them, especially with the $23 price tag (after getting it, I would have paid more). I do want to mention a few things about it:

1) it's great for left handed people like me. Write all you want and it still won't smear or get all over your hand like most pens or pencils.

2) it is bigger then most pens but it isn't as bad as some may say.

3) If you want black ink, I recommend the Lamy Cartridges Refill - Black (5) T10BK. My pen came with a beautiful royal blue cartridge. Though I have found the T10BK to be a little thin, it still writes great.

4) If you're new to fountain pens, or if you've used them all your life, make sure you put the cap on because this pen dries out and take a little scribbling to get it to come back.

5) If you work in retail like I do, you'll find that there are some surfaces that this pen can't put it but it will on most.

I highly recommend this pen to anyone, new to fountain pens or grew up using them. Order this and I guarantee that you'll love it and not want to use a normal pens ever again.
