Hello Everyone,
Finally signed up after reading far too many reviews!
I'm the proud owner of a Lamy Safari, All-star, 2000, and Staedtler Initium Lignum here in Southern Ontario.
Regards,
Andrew

Hello Andrew and welcome to FPN, from Cape Town, South Africa.


To sit at one's table on a sunny morning, with four clear hours of uninterruptible security, plenty of nice white paper, and a [fountain] pen - that is true happiness!

I have both medium and fine for my Safari and Al-star. The 2000 was on sale in medium, and I should have known - it writes beautifully smooth, like running a well lubricated bearing, which is pretty much the same thing, because there is no way the tines actually touch the page with the amount of ink that it puts down. It leaves a line about the width of a sharpie, and due to the narrow sweet spot, I don't find it has much line variation.

Hi Andrew,

I too was just a guest and finally decided to join. Nice to have a fellow Ontarian here, though I imagine there are many I haven't chatted with. Welcome!
