Great Flow, Great Pen. Only thoughts is that the Extra Fine is still pretty thick compared to other pens. Pen is still great and love the black nib!
A really nice pen for the price: - Fantastic grip - Modern look - Window to see ink levels - Comes in a wide variety of colors Looks great, and does the job - can't beat that.
I have owned may fine fountain pens over my lifetime, including limited editions and collector pens, and this gem of a pen has turned out to be one of my favorites. It fits comfortably in my hand, has good balance, and the ink flows easily. Though it has a steel nib, it rolls smoothly over most paper surfaces. I opted for the broad point as it fits my writing style better than a fine point. This is a great pen for somebody who is new to fountain pens, and an experienced fountain pen user will also find this pen to write at the quality levels of most fountain pens that are much more expensive
I ordered the same pen (different color). The Company contacted me and let me know the desired color wasn't available and offered suggested alternatives, or to cancel the order. I went with this color and love the pen. It writes incredibly smooth and consistent. Some reviews suggested the "fine" nib was more medium (or larger). I haven't found that...the "fine" is as fine as other pens I've used.
First, a big thanks to all the staff at Pen Boutique!!! They have the most friendly and knowledgeable staff that always goes out of their way for you. Thanks!! The pen is great and is always consistent so when buying another one, you know what to expect. This pen out performs much more expensive pens and everything on theses pens,....just work. The Safari is so lightweight that you can write all day without fatigue and I prefer the Safari to the Al-Star due to the weight and feel. The interchangeable nibs are great, especially if you own several Lamy fountain pens but they do run a little on the wide side so, if you're wanting a fine point, get an extra fine nib. The Safari with an extra fine nib is my "go to" fountain pen for general daily use.
