The Lamy Safari is one of the best and most frequently recommended entry level fountain pens, an absolute design icon, and generally probably one of the most sold fountain pens overall. Add it’s collectability through a myriad of colors, and it’s quite astonishing that it took me ages to get around to do a review of this pen.
Sure, I am not the first person to review the Lamy Safari, but hey: any stationery reviewer – sooner or later – has to have reviewed the Lamy Safari, I guess. Let’s call it the “pen reviewer’s rite of passage”. It’s just the way it is.
Now, to add at least a little twist to it all – and since I am a left-handed fountain pen user – I decided to combine this review of the Lamy Safari with a review of the lefty nibs that Lamy offers. What I think of the Safari and those lefty nibs? Well, let’s check it out in the video below, which is, as always, preceded by some quick facts. Sure enough, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
