Pif Green Lamy Safari (Uk Only)

Dip n Scratch

Recommended Posts

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.

Yeah, well.

I have had this a while & apart from the easy nib interchangeability it doesn't do anything dramatically better than the knock-offs. The grip really isn't the best in terms of comfort (for me)

I was considering a Nexx with the rubberised section but now i'm wondering if I really need to.....

I already have a c/c Ranga 3 that takes Bock units, for which I have a EF nib & a Jinhao X450 that is more comfortable than a Safari that will take a Bock #6 nib also.

So I guess that the answer to Lamy would be : Nein.


I don't know what the form is on how long to allow people to see the offer. Give it a few days and see if there are any particularly deserving potential recipients.

I'm not going to enter because I already have similar nib options, but this would be great for those who want to try out different nibs!

Well, there's both the 1.1mm and 1.5mm Italic nibs included. No need to go and buy a Lamy Joy.

You have EF and M for general writing as well.

What else do you need?

Hello, If it hasn't gone, could I be considered, if only for the nibs? All I have is M and things couldn't be more bland than that, so I'd like to try EF and the 1.1, and the converter.

Heavyhorses: Where are you?

You have a message!

King Roach: This is a package at the present time. I do not yet know what heavyhorses wants.


I understand your desire for a finer tipped nib. I had the same feeling. I would have kept the converter & EF nib & bought a Nexx. Before I realised I had the same tips in Bock nibs also.

If you really do want a broader nib. Clip the tip off the 'M' nib and get to work with emery board & 12,000 grit micromesh!

Buy a Jinhao X450, some spare nibs to practice on & get to work. You will learn something.

The grind I made from a Jinhao nib is much nicer than the Lamy 1.1mm nib as far as line-variation is concerned.

If you don't get a response from Heavyhorses...


I agree and it's even more fun to do things yourself, but since I don't have a plethora of Lamy nibs, I wouldn't do this on my M. I pretty much want to keep one Lamy pen only (yellow with black clip) and a couple nibs to interchange when I'd like a different line.


I've done it on other already-broken nibs with good success. It's fun. Fine and xtra fine are hard to achieve though and would need professional skills.

You may take the entire package. If you pass the pen on to someone else that is your business. There are cartridges included.
