Lamy Safari Fountain Pen – Umbra
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, 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.
There’s also a window in the barrel- a nice touch, allowing the user to check how much ink is left at a glance. Along with being visually pleasing, the clip is strong and springy.
Adding to the utilitarian nature of this pen is the triangular grip section, which is quite comfortable to hold.
Another benefit the Lamy Safari offers is interchangeable nibs. It’s available with a stylish black nib, in sizes ranging from EF to B, as well as chrome 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. Have a look through our selection of blue black inks for a great match for this pen.
