Lamy Safari Fountain Pen – All Black (2018 Limited Edition)
The Lamy Safari Fountain Pen is truly an icon. Its design has survived almost four decades, and is well known in the classroom and the boardroom. This pen has a reputation for being a reliable daily writer, and a great pen overall. Of course there are many contributing factors to this status.
Firstly, it is made from a durable ABS, and is available in a wide range of colours. This means you do not have to lose out on durability for a fun and funky finish. Every year Lamy releases a Limited Edition Lamy Safari in a brand new colour. Once the year is over Lamy stops production of this colour and then when the remaining stock is gone . . . It’s gone forever. The Safari in All Black has become a collectors’ item due to it’s inevitable rarity.
There’s also a window in the barrel – a nice touch, allowing the user to check how much ink is left at a glance.
Another benefit the Lamy Safari offers is interchangeable nibs. It’s available in nib sizes ranging from EF to B, as well as italic nibs from 1.1mm to 1.9mm. If you have multiple Safaris, you can easily swap nibs between them, or even order a few spares. Plus, this isn’t just exclusive to the Safari – the Lamy Al-Star, Vista, Joy, Studio, CP1, Nexx, and Logo fountain pens feature this nib as well.
The Lamy Safari is compatible with Lamy ink cartridges, which have a notably large ink capacity, and are available in a few different colours. These inks are just as dependable as the pen itself. Alternatively, if you prefer bottled ink, the Lamy Safari is compatible with the Z24 Converter.
