This is my review of this wonderful pen. Since I don't have any camera these days, no picture from me.

But you can find the actual pen's picture here :

or a direct link to the pictures here : http://www.penboard....op/pb/5474g.jpg
Those are the exact pictures of the pen I tested, since I bought it from there.

Interesting review, although that pen is WAAAY out of my league. I'm fascinated by the ink that you've used though- I also have a thing for blues. What ink is that?

The ink I used is Waterman Florida Blue in a bottle (the basic, cheap, erasable, non-feed/nib-endangering yet very good quality ink, in my opinion).
The Lamy Safari is inked with a Lamy cartridge. Reminds me I have to find a converter.
The darker ones are still Waterman Florida Blue, but pens haven't been inked for a while and dried ink mixed with the fresh one have darkened the mix.
The differences of tone (dark to clear) on the pages are only given by the nib and pressure.

I also prefer blue ink, the black ones are too solemn. And why would we need ballpoints if we used black in fountain pens ? ;)

PPS: Paper is 80g/m² Laser printer compatible, generic brand.

One of the blues I already own :embarrassed_smile: . Doesn't look as vibrant when I use it, though. Thanks for the prompt reply, and maybe I'll revisit my WFB, I abandoned it in favour of Noodler's Eel Blue :rolleyes: .

Pens are like watches , once you start a collection, you can hardly go back. And pens like all fine luxury items do improve with time
