  1. Can anyone explain to me why they like the designs so I can appreciate it more? I don’t mean to be rude or criticize people for what they like, I am just curious why you like the look of these pens. Just please reply! I really want to know what the appeal is. Thank you for your help! W. Major

    Lamy Safari EF writes faded

    Hello. Just bought my first lamy pen, safari charcoal in EF. I really want to love this pen because I like how it look and feels, it’s a beautiful pen. But I am kind of disappointed with the way it writes. As seen in the photo it writes somewhat faded. But I just want to ask if this is as expected of a lamy EF nib? (Shading?) I guess I am just comparing it with my pilot kakuno EF that writes super thin yet very solid dark lines using the same ink. Any thoughts? Btw I’ve tried flushing the pen multiple times, also cleaned it with water that has dish soap on it. I am using a z27 conv

  4. I'm in my 40s and am an artist wanting to learn calligraphy. I'm particularly interested in Copperplate. A recurrent issue is that I have a weird pen grip -- index and middle finger on the pen and thumb high -- a lateral quadrupod, from what I've been able to discover online. While I'm sure there are calligraphers who have the same grip but have found a way to work with it, I'm wondering if it's worth the effort to relearn holding my pen. Having the weird grip is making it difficult to fully enjoy some pens like the Lamy Safari. So has anyone completely changed their grip, and if so, how lo

    Hello from NZ!

    Hi there, I've been into fountain pens for a while, but thought it time to come out of my shell a bit and connect with other keen people! I'm from NZ and have been into stationery forever. My generation didn't grow up using fountain pens at school, so when I did come across them, they were these expensive glittering objects in glass cases in the stationery stores and you couldn't touch them. But about three years ago, I got my start with a purple Pilot Metropolitan in a medium nib, and Lamy Turquoise ink. I loved it so much that within a few months I had gotten all three of th
  6. Hi! Recently wandered across here whilst I was looking at ink differences and thought I'd make a little account! I'm Emma, from the UK and have recently fallen in love with Fountain Pens and everything about them. I wanted one a few years ago but never got round to it, until I got my first one (Lamy Safari - Aquamarine) and have fallen in love ever since. I suppose when you start a new obsession, you fall very hard 🤪 Have always been a lover of all things stationary way back since Primary school (saving the pennies for a new set every new school year!) and its carried

    Lamy Squeeze Converter

    Does anyone know how I might get my hands on one of the old Lamy squeeze converters (pictured below)? Thanks to haywoody for alerting me to the existence of this converter, which is where I also got the image (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/90367-lamy-safari/).
  8. Have just seen a first generation charcoal Safari being sold on the bay for an inordinate sum but am very interested in the W Germany imprint, which Ive never seen before. Does anyone have anything similar to this imprint on their Savanna, Terracotta and/or Umbra from the time please? Photo attached.
  9. Lamy Japan has new White Black Limited Edition launched yesterday in Japan. Its the White Safari that comes with Black Clip and Blacked out Nib. The Pen has Black Accents and Trims and comes in only EF and F nib options. There is also a ball point available in same pattern. Currently it is available only at physical stores. I am leaving a link below of few stores Itoya Isetan Are you planning to get one ?? Note: All images are sourced from Lamy Japan Facebook Page (link)
  10. Hello! I am new on the fountain pen hobby. Recently I purchased from a web store called lulustar.office, on ebay, a Lamy Safari Charcoal, fine nib, for a very good price (USD 14 + shipping). However, when it arrived, the pen came with no box, no cardboard, no cartridges, no instructions manual, just the pen itself with a converter inside of it, packaged in a cheap plastic bag that only fitted the pen at all, nothing else. I was really suspicious that I actually bought a conterfeit Lamy. However, the pen puts down a really fine line, much finer than my Parker Frontier made in India, which

    Jf_Lamy Safari Le.19 - Audi Nardo Grey

    Dear all, Well, after a hectic start to the 2019, I had some time to get back to my dear hobby again. Bought some new “toys” such as Hansa 381 airbrush, and while waiting for the 2019 LAMY safari special edition models, I went to “work” and made my own 2019 LAMY safari “limited edition”. Anyone interested how it turned out? Please have a look and let me know what you think … JF_LAMY_safari_LE.19_-_Audi_Nardo_Grey Kind regards, Jan (FLICKR)
  12. https://youtu.be/yviAVt1hPgU Hey Party-People. J. from Carpe Pluma with another review video. This time we look at the Lamy Safari and Vista. Time stamps included if you want to jump around. Check it out if you get the chance. Thanks!
  13. I already own a Lamy Safari fine which is around 2 years old and a Metropolitan fine which should be almost 1 year or so. I have laid my eyes on the Faber Castell Loom for a while now. Just want to know about it a bit more. I want to know the nib size of the fine and the medium sized nibs of the loom in comparison to the Safari. And which type of ink I should use with the Loom. Any help is much appreciated.

    Lamy Vibrant Pink Ink

    Hi. A while ago I bought a bottle of Lamy Vibrant Pink ink to use with my Safari. I have just bought a new nib for it and I'm also changing the ink colour. I've changed inks in my Safari before, but this time it was different. I found the pen really difficult to clean out, and I even had to totally dismantle my converter to get all of the ink out that was stuck behind the piston. Has anybody else had problems like this? Thanks!
  15. Look at the attached image: Lamy call the colour green. I call it lime, whatever...... There are three other nibs as well as the stock M: EF plus 1.1 & 1.5mm Italic nibs. There's even a Lamy converter. What other maker supplies their ink in Lamy cartridges? Has been regularly flushed, but never used with any problematical ink. No Iron-Gall & none that stain. As it says in the title... If you are not a resident of the UK you cannot be considered. You only need to pay postage for all the above listed stuff.
  16. I have no clue what I just bought! It looks like Lamy Safari Alpine, but it has small German eagle logo on cap. And I have no idea, why there is Cross converter in the picture. Pen will arrive next week to me, so I can take better photos. I recognize that eagle, but I didn't find exact match. Price wasn't that bad (22 euros), and this is nice pair to my Pelikan m100 aka.stormtrooper.
  17. Hello everyone, I have a weird kind of question. It's not a big deal but I wonder if anyone else experience this too. I'm an unstoppable reverse writer. I often do it without realising. Lately I noticed, whenever I use Lamy Safari, the tips of my thumb and index finger get stained with ink. I realised this happens when I write reverse with this pen, and that I tend to hold the pen closer to nib while writing reverse, probably because of the indentations on the grip section to be used while writing nonreverse. The part I marked with arrow in the picture is wet with ink. I wonder if this i

    Lamy Safari 2018_Jf Ayrton Senna № 12; Jps

    Dear all, Well, bears are cute, no doubt about it. But! We are big boys (and girls), right? And speaking of limited editions, I had something on my mind for a very, very long time. A few years back, I had the intention of getting into scale modelling and bought couple of kits and tools. Started working on one, but after meeting with Jan_Rosecky, one of the best modellers in Europe, I realized there was NO WAY I could get even close to his results. Still kept the tools, though ... and “the idea”. Then came the Vista_Frost from Christof, and I was behind again J It is AMAZING! Because

    Lamy Safari Charcoal Query

    Hello guys. I need some suggestions regarding my Lamy Safari Charcoal. I am attaching three pictures. The nib as seen in the picture has developed some sort of stain near the slit of the nib. I have tried soaking the nib in water for a couple of hours as well as washing it some liquid handwash. Nothing seems to remove the stain mark. Is it because of the ink I am using? Next to the cartridge converter, if you zoom and observe carefully you will be able to see that some little amount of ink is trapped between the contact of the piston edge and the body of the converter. I have disassembled the
  20. Hello! This is technically my second topic, but I only just found out about this introduction forum. I've been pretty active on reddit.com/r/fountainpens (my username is the same as on here) these past couple months, but I thought I'd join this forum as well! I've been using fountain pens since I was 13 I think, but around sometime last year I kind of started collecting more pens. Up to that moment I had written with a cheap (around 3 euros) fountain pen from a Dutch store. That one had been used and abused a lot, so I wanted to buy a new pen. At this point I didn't know much about fountai
  21. I like fountain pens, I like ink, I like paper and i like machines. So I use them togerther. The below image started out as a doodle and I felt I should see it through to the finish. The image is drawn using a Lamy Safari with and EF nib. The paper is 110# card stock and the ink is Aurora Blue. If you enjoyed this drawing I have others on my YouTube channel: Joseph Solinger

    Robert Oster River Of Fire

    Ink Review: Robert Oster River of Fire Robert Oster is an Australian ink manufacturer and has developed a large number of colors in recent years. I have tried several of these inks, and have found most of them to behave quite well. Some of the colors are unique, and have unique names. Overall I like the brand and the inks that I have tried. River of Fire is a lovely dark green ink with a very nice red sheen, especially when used on Tomoe River paper. I purchased a sample of this ink from Anderson Pens last fall during a period of time when I was trying many dark green inks. This ink

    Purple Black

    Hello all! I am looking for suggestions for my first ink in my Lamy safari Dark lilac medium nib. I am looking for something that I can use professionally but something that has character! I looked at Diamine eclipse but it seems too black, then I looked at PR ebony purple but it seems to have mixed reviews...I was hoping for something with a little more purple. I prefer the bluish purple, not the ones that tend toward red. I am just reaching out to you because you have so much more experience than I do! Hoping someone can offer me some advise! So grateful!!

    Is My Nib Clogged?

    I got my Lamy safari delivered today from Amazon. I had seen a couple of videos about it. As lamy pens come tested, I decided to clean it. I pulled out the nib using a tape, but the tape left some 'glue' on the nib. I tried to wipe it off, but it went into the slit. When I saw the nib through the light, I don't see a continuous line in the slit (from the breather hole to the tip ). I tried flushing with distilled water, but its still there. I tried writing, and I think it writes ok. This is my first time using a decent fountain pen, so I couldn't tell if it didn't write the way it shoul
  25. The Lamy Safari is arguably the most significant fountain pen currently in production. Its popularity is immense, and if you go to any thread even remotely about beginner pens you’ll see its name, or at least the name of its twin the Vista or older brothers the Al-Star or LX. Although it now has its rivals, the Pilot Metropolitan and, to a lesser extent, the TWSBI Eco, the Safari will always hold a special place in the fountain pen world, and was the first fountain pen for countless new enthusiasts. However, this popularity doesn’t bring only good effects. Like any popular pen, or popular i
