Lamy Safari F nib.......I know, everybody already knows how great it is....It has been reviewed to death.

But I just added a used one to my stable and after a little work on some brown Kraft paper smoothing the nib, it is a terrific "sport utility" pen. I can see one in my everyday rotation. Quick 3 X 5 card review below:

I agree. And I think I may have to add a yellow Safari to my little collection at some point, it's such a cheerful colour.

I like that! Now that you mention it, your yellow Safari reminds me a lot of those Nissan Xterras (Google Image link)...

No harm in another review of this much lauded pen. smile.gif

Btw, can you try taking another photo of the review card? It's a bit blurry... looks like the camera focused on the pen and so the text is slightly diffused. Thanks.

AHA the ol' Brown Paper Bag Smoothing Technique. Forgot all about that. My "F" is a little scratchy sometimes. Maybe I'll resort to that to smooth things out a bit. Thanks for reminding me.

Ah, it was one of those that did it for me.

"What's that yellow shiny pen? Buy you? Um, OK...."
