I've tried these a couple of times at a shop and commented they feel like writing with cheap screwdrivers. But when I saw the price here at Amazon and the free shipping, I said what the hay and bought one.

I was immediately pleased. It writes very smoothly, is a nice manly size, the grip feels great, it all feels sturdy, and it writes like buttah. One exception -- it is more angle-sensitive than my other pens. Often when I am sitting and reading I take notes. Leg is up, I am slouched, and angles are like a deadbeat carpenter's walls. Too often in these positions this pen skips where my others don't. I own some 20 pens and 20 inks.

It is an exceptional writer on a flat surface. The F is somewhat broader than I expected, and there is no converter with it. Hello eBay. One feature I look forward to is its variety of nibs -- purchase necessary. Many use these for calligraphy. While it is smooth, its line variation is not sensational. It is a steel-nibbed daily writing workhorse. The plastic body feels indestructible and the nib looks rock solid. German made in the truest sense.

You really cannot fail with this pen, but be sure of your ink supply. Staples doesn't carry Lamy. I buy from Stylo.ca.

I currently have the Pilot Prera, Pilot Metropolitan and the Parker IM that I use as a "daily carry" or everyday pen. This is my new absolute favorite. I have used many fountain pens but this one write so smoothly with just the right feedback and feels so good in the hand.

I would highly recommend this pen to anyone, not just fountain pen aficionados, since I've showed it off to all my friends and they never want to put it down. It is an amazing writing experience and I will be looking at more Lamy pens in the future and possibly getting a couple more of these bad boys.

I would also suggest you get a supplementary ink, either cartridges or some fountain pen ink and a syringe filler to refill this pen. You will be writing with it a lot.

I was really excited for this well priced pen. Finally got it delivered and inked it up right away. Within a day or two is started to leak all the time. I reseated the nib and still lots of leaking. Pretty frustrating, but the vendor provided almost immediate resolution to my problem.

Some fountain pen users might find the grip a bit restricting. Depends on how you hold it if you are left handed. My second safari. Fine nib writes fairly broad compared to Japanese F nibs, Can interchange nibs though.

So I've had this pen for a while now and although good there is a few problems I've noticed, the cap no longer snaps on tight so using the pocket clip is no longer a possibility I get a lot of leakage through the nib and it overall feels really cheap. For me none of those are really deal breakers, but this one really is. At first the pen wrote good but after a while anytime I put my pen to the paper I notice a lot of ink pouring out of the pen. It is so wet I can barely wright with it. I gave it 3 stars because for the first month it was a decent pen. I wouldn't buy another for a great pen spend a bit more money and get a twsbi 580

Well balanced pen that puts down a smooth line of ink - matte charcoal comes with a black nib for that extra stealth look - holds up well to writing - my third Lamy - the only reason not to buy a fourth is because the first three are still working wonderfully!

Overall a fairly good pen. The Lamy Safari Fountain Pen feels sturdy and displays a very utilitarian design. It doesn't leave a long-lasting impression visually but it does write well. One warning however; as another user has written before me, it is very angle sensitive and it tends to skip if you're not holding it absolutely right. This can be a drawback but since it slides so nicely on paper, I tend to overlook that detail - until I get a better pen, that is. Good, but not great.

I bought this as a test to see if I could use a fountain pen as my daily writer. Mission accomplished! Love this pen! May pick up a second one for home use.
I did a little research and apparently this model has been produced since the '80s and I've seen comments from people saying they last a long time. Also nice to know that you can get accessories for it, like ink converters so you can use an inkwell. That is likely my next purchase.
