Thanks Ghost Plane! I haven't had much experience with wider nibs yet, but I am liking the finer nibs for notes and every-day writing so far. I actually have watched countless GP videos already, and have been in contact with Brian asking him about which pen I should go with once I can finally save up enough. (That's why I'm eyeballing the TWSBI mini)

Hi John and welcome aboard.
It is never safe to let your pens lying around, especially "nice" pens. as there are always people who think these pens are better of in their pockets, or people who are careless and cause the pens to drop and break.
The only good place is in your shirtpocket. or such place.
Enjoy the forum

Thank you, I quickly learned that, Dick. I had left the pen in my pencil pouch on my desk and it disappeared. I only had it for a few days, too!

Welcome, John !
$20 was a great deal on a LAMY Safari. It is an excellent and durable fountain pen. Used ones are likely to be in very good condition. The nibs are changeable, so trying them does not require a new pen with each.
Getting one Safari stolen is unfortunate, but not a very expensive lesion, if it is learned.
Write down what you like about your LAMY Safari. What would you change about it ? This will help you choose your next fountain pen. No hurry. Fountain pens are not going to vanish, and there remains a lifetime to pursue bankruptcy.
Write with joy.
