I have charcoal Safari too, but with a F nib. How smooth is the EF?

I was worried that the EF nib would be scratchy, but I like .5 mechanical pencil lead for writing fine lines and getting notes and sentences where they ought not go. I am very very fond of the EF, I precieve it very smooth, and the flow is good, it dosen't just cut out. There is no scratch but I think there is what is called "feedback", meaning you can feel the paper, but it lays down a line with little or no pressure. After seeing the Fine nib, which looks to write like a .9mm line I am glad I went with EF. Does the fine write a line like a .9mm pencil? I am curious.

Man that is a nice demonstrator pen! My favorite part is that they make it like all the others with the ink viewing window. As I suspected the fine just dosen't look fine enough to be called fine for me.

I love my Al-Stars and Vista. I'm so sad to have recently lost my charcoal Safari, but I have memories. And a photo:

Here's my recently acquired Lamy 2000 with M nib. It came in this tin clamshell packaging, which I thought was odd given that most of the time the 2000 is shipped in the cardboard-like package. Anyway, I really love the pen and it's getting a lot of pocket time! :)

Heres a picture of some of the Safaris I have in the collection

I have become a little obsessive about collecting the different colours.

 

My EDC is a Black 1.1 nibbed safari loaded with a Lamy Turquoise cartridge. Fabtastic pen.

 

Hoping that Santa brings me a BB nibbed L2K.

My red Al-star is at work, as always. It's been dropped a million times, borrowed, banged around, and still looks/works like new. I have a fairly active job, I busted a papermate in my pocket a few weeks ago but the al-star has never given me a problem.

 

In the picture we have the obnoxious-yellow 1.1 and the pencil. I'm waiting on the Accent mechanical pencil in the mail too and I'm SO excited.

Hi,

 

My first Lamy was a 2000, but I don't have one anymore.

 

I really like the Lamy ABC and Scribble a lot though.

Wow! Great post, Doug. And even better handwriting. I'm very impressed. Well done.

Lamy 2k, Lamy Persona Titan, Lamy Lady, Lamy Studio - all with F or EF-nibs

Sorry, flash from a little very inexpensive Fuji destroys real colors :(

Lamy black titanium oxide Persona 18 K nail....was an OB...stayed in the box because it had NO line variation.

Pendelton Brown made it a a Cursive Italic M-B....now it is always in rotation.

 

The chief engineer at Lamy told me last summer during a Factory tour, a new Persona was coming out this year....been waiting.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

The persona is on my to buy list...any hint as to a release date? Then again, I might get a vintage and modern version. Also on my list, a Lamy 27.

 

Great to see some older models :)
