Hi

 

I am totally new to fountain pens and just chanced upon this forum while considering mid range luxury pens to buy as a birthday present from Amazon (a Waterman Expert Deluxe Rollerball) and got persuaded to get a White Lamy Safari (Fine nib) to try out and see how it fares against Pilot G2s which is my fav since I graduated from using pencils during P3. The only impression I have of FPs are that my DAd's ones are extremely leaky and stain everything which happened way too long ago.

 

While I am absolutely delighted at how smooth my Lamy glides on paper when positioned correctly, I can't help but mind the slight bleeding that appears on my Popular Composition/Lecture Pad paper (the normal foolscap we like to use in schools). FYI, It doesn't bleed with the thicker copier paper.

 

It would help if I could know where is the best place/website to get a Neon Coral (and other colour) Lamys locally. It would help if I could know whether EF nib will bleed like the fine nib and where to get it if possible.(Pls provide places which sells EF Lamys as well!)

 

It would be really helpful to know the exact SGD the pens/nibs are retailing for in SG.
