I have charcoal Safari too, but with a F nib. How smooth is the EF?

I was worried that the EF nib would be scratchy, but I like .5 mechanical pencil lead for writing fine lines and getting notes and sentences where they ought not go. I am very very fond of the EF, I precieve it very smooth, and the flow is good, it dosen't just cut out. There is no scratch but I think there is what is called "feedback", meaning you can feel the paper, but it lays down a line with little or no pressure. After seeing the Fine nib, which looks to write like a .9mm line I am glad I went with EF. Does the fine write a line like a .9mm pencil? I am curious.

Man that is a nice demonstrator pen! My favorite part is that they make it like all the others with the ink viewing window. As I suspected the fine just dosen't look fine enough to be called fine for me.

I love my Al-Stars and Vista. I'm so sad to have recently lost my charcoal Safari, but I have memories. And a photo:

Here's my recently acquired Lamy 2000 with M nib. It came in this tin clamshell packaging, which I thought was odd given that most of the time the 2000 is shipped in the cardboard-like package. Anyway, I really love the pen and it's getting a lot of pocket time! :)

Heres a picture of some of the Safaris I have in the collection

file_zpsbcd45ee6.jpg

I have become a little obsessive about collecting the different colours.

My EDC is a Black 1.1 nibbed safari loaded with a Lamy Turquoise cartridge. Fabtastic pen.

Hoping that Santa brings me a BB nibbed L2K.

My red Al-star is at work, as always.  It's been dropped a million times, borrowed, banged around, and still looks/works like new.  I have a fairly active job, I busted a papermate in my pocket a few weeks ago but the al-star has never given me a problem.

 

In the picture we have the obnoxious-yellow 1.1 and the pencil.  I'm waiting on the Accent mechanical pencil in the mail too and I'm SO excited.

Hi,

 

My first Lamy was a 2000, but I don't have one anymore.

 

I really like the Lamy ABC and Scribble a lot though.

Wow!  Great post, Doug.  And even better handwriting.  I'm very impressed.  Well done.

Lamy black titanium oxide Persona 18 K nail....was an OB...stayed in the box because it had NO line variation.

Pendelton Brown made it a a Cursive Italic M-B....now it is always in rotation.

 

The chief engineer at Lamy told me last summer during a Factory tour, a new Persona was coming out this year....been waiting.


Edited by Bo Bo Olson, 09 April 2014 - 20:05.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The persona is on my to buy list...any hint as to a release date? Then again, I might get a vintage and modern version. Also on my list, a Lamy 27.

Great to see some older models :)
