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.

This is one of the best fountain pens under $50 USD, for fountain pen novices or for experienced fountain pen users. This is not a calligraphy pen, but the "medium" point (like a broad ballpoint, or maybe even a bit wider than that) forces you to write larger letter sizes and improve your handwriting. The grip is comfy, and it "forces" you to treat your writing wrist well.

any of the lamy pens are near indestructible and offer a smooth write for their price. it's certainly no DuPont but its a great pen (especially for someone's first fountain pen)

I've been writing with fountain pens since the age of six (no, I'm not kidding -- when I was in grade school in Germany, we were taught to write only with fountain pens), so after quite a few decades I consider myself an experienced user. I don't do calligraphy but use fountain pens exclusively for taking notes. I prefer a medium nib that writes smoothly. My favorite pens so far have been my old Geha from my school days and a cheap Sheaffer that writes like a dream. I also have a Pelikan that scratches horribly despite its expensive gold nib. Today I got my Lamy Safari, and it prompted me to write my first review. You could say it was "love at first stroke!" The pen is lightweight plastic with a slightly rough surface and very comfortable to grip. It is not the prettiest with its rather bland industrial look, but the smooth writing experience more than makes up for its lack of looks. This is my new favorite pen. I'm very pleased with this purchase and the way the pen writes. Not at all what I expected for $25!

I'm a journalist/Public Affairs type and so write a lot. My finished product, I type on a computer, but my thoughts I always write out long-hand. This pen is a wonderful writing experience. I have only used it for three days, but I find it fits my hand perfectly. I laid it on my desk and walked away for about 30 minutes, and someone decided they liked the pen also and nicked it. When I find out who it is, I'll suggest they write a review after they recover.

There is a happy ending. I am ordering another pen and that will make two new happy Lamy pen users in the world.

I read all the reviews regarding this pen and decided to make the purchase. Once I received and began using it, I was amazed at how smooth and comfortable it was to use. It looks great and simple and it serves its purpose. I would recommend buying either a refill cartridge or the converter to use refillable ink since I used it up within a week (of heavy use of course!)

This pen is amazing. For comparison, I tried this Lamy Safari medium nib fountain pen next to my Montblanc 146 Le Grand FP, medium nib, and a waterman phileas M nib. For the value, this pen is clearly the best. It writes smoothly and consistently, the weight is light, but feel good in the hand. The pen is not too small or too big. For me, the cap makes the pen slightly off-balance, but then again that is personal preference and I just leave it off when writing. You simply cannot go wrong with this pen. BUY IT!

This is the second Lamy Safari fountain pen (medium nib) I've bought for myself. They are good value for the price, lay down a good line and write relatively smoothly. The one problem I've encountered in both pens is that they leak out of the nib if stored on their side or cap end down, when I use them with the optional converter. I have not had a problem with them as long as I store them cap end up.
