  1. Hi! I have a Lamy Safari fountain pen with the Z28 converter for the ink. I used it for some time with a permanent ink DeAtramentis Document Ink (Black). After few weeks of not using it the ink seems to be partially dried. How can I clean it safely? I assume water won't do any good. Please, dear people, who love fountain pens for a long time, take into the consideration that I have never clean any fountain pen and I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the subject, so I would greatly appreciate a detailed explanation or perhaps a link to video if something like that exists.

    Loose Nib On My Safari

    Hi, In cleaning my (stock) nib, I tried to wipe it dry with a cloth and it popped right off. All I could find in a Google search are articles emphasizing the difficulty of removing the nib (!), and they all just say to slide the (new) nib on, making sure it's oriented properly. I can slide it on to the feed, but it doesn't seem to slide into the section and it's just loosely sitting on the feed. What am I doing wrong? Is it supposed to go into the section? If so, do I just have to push it really hard? Thanks a lot for your help.

    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/).

    Tight Fitting Nibs.

    Recently I've ordered some F & LH nibs from my country's official Lamy store to customize some of my Safaris and AL-Stars. While changing the nibs, I've noticed that they are too tight fitting. When I wanted to remove one from my AL-Star with tape, whole feed detached from the pen. Fortunately the feed and the pen are fine but, I'm surprised to tightness of the new Lamy nibs. Did anyone experienced the same phenomena? What if I want to return to old nibs of the pens some day? How can I remove these nibs? The nibs write very good BTW. They are wet, smooth and firm like all Lamy nibs.

    This imprint is on a Savannah Green barrel. Was this an Export version?

    Reputable Source Of Brown Safari

    For years, Ive been hoping that Lamy would release a chocolate brown, textured Safari with a black clip. Today, I saw that just such a thing exists for the South Korean market (Line Friends?) So Im looking for a reputable place to buy one. By reputable, I mean a dealer who will sell me a genuine brown Safari made by Lamy and not a fake. If it has to come in a fancy box with cute animals, so be it. But all I really want is the fountain pen. Ive seen them available on eBay but I dont know which sellers deal in genuine Safaris. Can anyone suggest where to buy this pen, please?
  8. Today I was in the next town over, and I went in to its ‘WH Smith’ store. As usual, I went to have a quick look at their pens, and was slightly surprised to see that, in February 2020, their display included the ‘Petrol’ Safari from 2017, and more-surprised to see that they also had the ‘Dark Lilac’ one from 2016. Before anyone gets their hopes up, I must stress that these were only the pens - no cartridges, and certainly not any bottles, of the relevant LE inks. So, is this availability just an anomaly that is attributable to my living out in the sticks, where nothing as recherché as a fo

    Lamy Cartridges. Poor Fit Or Counterfeit?

    I bought some Lamy blue/black cartridges and I have been using them in a Safari & a Nexx. The issue is that they seem to weep ink where they push-fit onto the 'pip'. I tried wrapping the cartridge with paper, so there's some kind of a seal around the end of the section. The paper was impregnated with blue/black ink when I just looked, but there was nothing in the barrel. I would have tried the cartridges in my Yiren 566 but the damn thing has an EF nib. The cartridges have the 'LAMY' mark and are in a box with a Lamy name. Has anyone else had any issue with the fit of the Lamy cartridges
  10. Nicely shading, quick drying, lightish green with some dark undertones. Loved the color and sharing, and smoothness. I don't have any inks to compare to.
  11. Hello FPN! I'm a 17 year old guy from Michigan and I've recently become enamored with fountain pens. I've mustered up enough money to buy two Lamy Safari's (one of which unfortunately someone decided to steal from me at school) and a Joy with a 1.5 italic for calligraphy as well as a bottle of Private Reserve Avacado. However, I'm looking to buy another ink or two (probably more later on), and some other pens once I eventually get some money. Since I picked up the first one a few months ago I haven't been able to stop writing. (An added benefit is that I'm writing more notes in class and

    Lamy Forecast 2019

    Some forecast for 2019 emerged on the net. New Joy, Aion, Safari, Studio, and the very confusing AL-Star and Lx. See here: https://frankunderwater.com/2018/12/30/a-peak-into-lamys-2019-special-editions/
  13. I own a Lamy Safari F nib (though I think it writes on the broader side of F), its writes very very smooth. A friend of mine bought a Diplomat Magnum F nib recently though. Both of these pens look a bit similar except the nib part. Can anyone tell me how much the writing experience on the Magnum differs from the Safari?
  14. I own mostly Indian pens and I want to breach out into foreign brands. On WilliamPenn.net, the Loom and Safari cost similar, but people abroad prefer the Safari as it costs cheaper. Given that both cost the same, which one is better? And if there are other recommendations in the Rs. 2500 range apart from these two, that would be great too.

    Lamy Safari / Alpine White

    Dear all, Happy day for me, today. When I went to USA as a high school student in the 90s, I asked my parents to buy me a fountain pen. Well, they bought me a LAMY Safari. I knew nothing about LAMY back then, and remember filling the cartridges with a syringe and needle to save money. Many years later, I bought my first LAMY 27e on eBay, had it restored, and that is how my collection started. A couple of weeks ago, I bought this LAMY Safari, and here are some pictures, if you are interested: More pictures: here Now, please, please help me identify the pen correctly as I believe (after
  16. I cannot claim to be a fountain pen expert in any way whatsoever, however the perspective through which I see things is one of fairness (I hope!). I've had this LAMY Safari (Charcoal colour, fine/extra fine nib - I'll explain shortly) for about 6 months now and use it daily at school. It's inked up with Diamine Onyx Black: the only bottle of ink I currently own. This review should, hopefully, provide my personal opinion about the pen as well as an 'umbrella' overview of it. Let's dive in... First Impressions When I opened the grey box in which it arrived to me, I was, to be perfectly
  17. I have a beautiful -at least to me- Lamy Vista with an awful EF nib. Having experienced more than one mediocre Lamy nibs (lucky me! ) I loose faith in Lamy and refuse to buy yet another scratchy nib. So the pen sits unused in my drawer. And here comes that topic and that post of mine (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/249626-if-your-friends-all-jumped-off-a-cliff/?p=2746375) to remind me my beautiful Vista and what a pity it is to see it laying unused and how much I would love to just replace it's nib with a smooth Pilot M nib. And then it hits me. Ok, Pilot nibs ca
  18. Hello, I have stumbled across a vintage Lamy pen I cannot properly identify and date. Any information on production year, collectibility and value of the pen will be greatly appreciated. I am unable to post any photographs as of right now, but if necessary, they will be posted as soon as I am able to. It's a yellow Lamy Safari fountain pen, with a black clip. The nib is painted black, but there is no logo on it. I suppose there was a time when Lamy did not laser etch their nibs? When did they start etching nibs with nib size and logo? This one is completely black. As for the color, it appear
  19. 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
  20. Another light review, with a few snaps... Preamble (as usual, skip this bit if you don’t like preambles): We have been incredibly fortunate to be able to get our hands on some pretty nice pens over the last few years. The posting of my last review prompted quite a lengthy conversation between “She who must be obeyed” and myself, about the difference between luxury pens, affordable pens and just pens that we have enjoyed. There is such a wide range in the wild, of pens that can be regarded as affordable. However, when a pen costing $2 can indeed be described by some as expensive, and co
  21. I love everything about my matte Safari except the grip. It is too narrow and I dislike the cutouts. I was hoping it would grow on me, but it's been almost a year and it's still uncomfortable. Any recommendations for something similar without the narrow triangle grip? Specifically: Durability/knockabout pen (a must).Not slipperyPostable17g (0.6oz) weight, posted (similar range preferred). Metros are too heavy for my taste at 26g (0.9oz).Easy to cleanUSD$30 or less including converter if CC Thanks!
  22. I assume that this question has been raised in the past, but did not have much luck in searching the forum. I have two very early Safari's where the blind cap has become brittle and comes out peacemeal. I understand that this is a common problem with the very early versions. Can these blind caps be replaced with newer ones? ...or has the design been changed?
  23. Hello everyone: Im a fountain pen newbie who arrived late to the Lamy Safari party; I only discovered them a couple of years ago. Ive really been lusting after the beautiful aquamarine 2011 special edition which sold out way before I had even heard of Lamy. I have seen a few of the aquamarine Safaris advertised on eBay, but Ive also been reading about all the fakes that are on the market. As a brand new buyer of Safaris, I dont want to get duped right out of the gate. Ive watched videos on how to spot a fake, but I dont know any way Id be able to spot fakes on an online auction site since
  24. I want a waterproof ink in my Lamy Safari and AL-Star. I've been using a Noodler's Bulletproof ink. What other waterproof inks would be good in these pens?
