I was looking for a good, solid fountain pen that wrote well and that I could use for sketching. I found this Lamy pen and thought it looked like it would do that. I am very pleased with it. I had never heard of Lamy pens before but this is a sturdy well built pen with a wonderfully secure clip. The ink flows smoothly and controllably. I am just pleased through and through. :)

We live overseas where shops offer Parker or the expensive prestige adult brands. My kids have to use them at school for all their work (age 10 up). Their basic Parker school pens kept breaking, leaking or nib breaking. Decided to give Lamy a go based on the reviews. Absolutely fantastic. Fun colours - in the end went for deep red, navy blue and yellow. After a year of daily use still going strong. Am thinking of ordering more for presents for their friends!

I decided I'd like to try using a fountain pen for everyday writing and some sketching, and so I've bought half a dozen different ones over the last few weeks. The Lamy Safari is by far the best of the ones I've tried. I find the texture of the pen gives a much better grip than shiney metal pens, the nib writes [and draws] extremely well and has enough flex for a left-hander like me. The cartridges hold a lot of ink - though I've refilled them with Noodlers buttetproof ink using a syringe - and the pen itself looks good. I whole-heartedly recommend this pen as an excellent writing intrument.
The only pen I've found that comes even close for my particular needs of writing and sketching as a leftie is the WHSmith soft touch cartridge pen [half price offer at £[]] but the Lamy is the best option. Definately worth a tenner, and I'll be ordering the fine nib wersion too.

An otherwise excellent pen, well balanced a smooth writer and sits well in my hand. I'd give it 5 if the nib was a standard medium but to me this is a thick nib. I'd suggest buying the fine nib version if you're used to say a Parker 45's medium nib.
I'd also recommend the z24 ink cartridge convertor.

I'm a big fan of fountain pens and over the years have amassed a rather large collection (way more than I can actually use on a regular basis), but I had always passed on the Lamy pens for some reason, despite the many glowing reviews they get. However, whilst killing some time at the train station recently I decided it was time to see what all the fuss was about, and bought myself one.

I got the Charcoal model, with the black clip and nib, which looks very stealth-like I must admit. Costing just over £15 (though if you shop around you can pick one up for even less online) I was intrigued as to how something costing so little could be so highly regarded by users. On opening the package, the style of the pen is certainly distinctive, though isn't something that I'd describe as pretty. That said, it is not an ugly pen either - just modern. The pen definitely looks much better in the flesh.

In the hand it is very light without feeling cheap and balances well with the cap on. The steel nib (mine is a medium) works smoothly from the very first inking, delivering results which please, without excelling in any particular area. That was my first impression - a fairly average outing for a new pen, and none of the glowing praise I'd read so much about.

But here I am, a month down the line, and now the proud owner of 5 Safaris and 3 Al Stars! These things are now the only pens I use on a daily basis. This is in part due to their usability, and also due to the fact that I can carry them around with me without fear I'll drop them, lose them or have one of them stolen. It's a cheap, no frills workhorse of a pen which almost screams out to be used and abused, and already they feel like old friends that will be brought along for many adventures.

It's not luxurious, it doesn't pretend to be something it isn't, but the Safari gets the job done without fuss and to a standard that will keep most users happy. I'll never be without a Lamy now!

As an everyday fountain pen this seems great. I admit before receiving it I was a little concerned about the shaping of the barrel by the nib where you hold it, wasn't sure if the triangular shaping would be comfortable but in practice it works just fine, comfortable to hold and not at all the issue I feared. For me it balances best in use if you do put the clip back on the barrel but then it's nice, light and well balanced. I was also a little bit concerned by some previous reviews about whether I'd find the 'medium' a tad broad but it's fine (I normally use a medium nib Waterman but wanted something cheaper for everyday use).

If I were really being pushed about the only criticism I would have is that to me the charcoal has a bit too much brown to really be considered "matt black" but that's really being pernickety. Oh, and just one other thing, if you want to use this with a Filofax which has an elasticated pen holder on the side (mine's a Pocket size Identity organiser) the very square end makes it hard to push it through the elastic tube and the length of the cap means it would stick out slightly, so I'll have to stick with my disposable Pilots for that. Ah well, this is still a really nice pen to use and I look forward to many hours writing with it.

(I use with the Z24 converter and Diamine bottle ink, so can't comment on the Lamy cartridges)
