I ordered a Lamy Safari US Independence special edition fountain pen, and it was sold at a reasonable price and I received it quickly. The handwritten thank you note is a very nice touch for pen specialists-- I even considered reaching out to the seller to ask what pen and ink were used to write "Thank You". I would buy from again.
LAMY Safari USA Independence Fountain Pen
I purchased this because I liked the Lamy I received in my subscription box and wanted this color scheme. It amazes me how things can be the same yet still different. Same pens and same nibs but the nib in this one writes thicker. It's a fun pen and I like the triangular grip as it fits the hand well and reduces finger strain. The Lamy ink works well but I look forward to trying the converter I purchased.
I bought two fountian pens from this really cool store!! That was great! I didn’t try either before driving home to Atlanta. The Lamy had a nice box, but no instructions. The Pilot fountian pen did. So I knew to remove the cardboard circle that prevents the blue ink cartridge to not accidentally be punctured. I then screwed the Lamy pen together to puncture the ink cartridge, as well as the Pilot pen, same process. I left both pens leaning nib-downward to let gravity bring the ink to the nib, for about 30 minutes. When I uncapped the Lamy, the cap was full of ink! The ink cartridge is 3/4’s empty. NEVER seen a fountian pen do this!! I tried calling the store, left two VM’s as I had no idea what was wrong! He didn’t call me but texted me wanting photos showing if the cartridge was installed wrong, it wasn’t. Dumped out the ink in the cap, cleaned everything up, and installed a second Lamy ink cartridge. The pen magically didn’t do what it did before. I’m relieved, the Pilot fountian pen ZERO issues!!
Be very careful of buying Lamy Safari pens on Amazon!! A Chinese company is making counterfeit Lamy Safari pens. Which is true, but why counterfeit a cheap plastic fountian pen??? I don’t get that at all. Counterfeiting Mount Blanc’s? Yeah, I TOTALLY get that! NEVER buy a MB on Amazon or FleaBay.
Yep, that’s what I call it. Love the way it fits my hand, and the way the calligraphy nib makes my writing look fabulous. I keep it near for everyday writing.
