This is a good pen, and for the price really can't be beat. It fits well in the hand, takes cartridges, has a clip, but the nib is a little scratchy at times.
If you haven’t yet tried out a Lamy Safari yet you are really missing out! Don’t let the price of this pen fool you—it is very well designed even though it doesn’t cost a fortune. For those who tend to grip too tightly or hold at the wrong angle this pens finger indents help make it one you can write with for a very long time. Love that you can monitor your ink level with the see through ink well hole on the side. The clip on the cap is very rugged so you likely aren’t going to snap it off at any time. Definitely take a trip to Truphae to pick up a Safari and find your new best pen!
A very well-made pen with a smooth, juicy nib. A great writer. Highly recommended. 👍
It’s not too easy to find authentic Lamy pen in the US and I had the experience of getting a fake one on Amazon. So I did some research on Lamy's official website and saw Truphae as a documented retailer. I gave it a try and I was glad that I made the purchase here. There were other official retailers too but they had higher bars for free delivery. Truphae offers free delivery to orders over $20 which is quite easy to reach and this is the only reason I chose Truphae in the first place.
The Lamy Safari White Fountain Pen I bought was pretty authentic I think, same quality with the old one I had. The delivery was super fast which is far beyond my expectation considering this is a small business and my experiences were that small businesses often had longer period of processing and mailing time. Truphae mailed out the package the same day I made the order and within the package there was a cute welcome card.
The day after I got my pen, I saw they launched new Lamy Fountain Pen for 2021 and the colors are PRETTY! Ouch, I should have waited a little longer. But, this is life, right? I still love the white fountain pen and I am very happy with my purchase. I would love to come back and buy other stuff here and would recommend Truphae to others.
The grip is comfortable and the pen has good aesthetics. The converter (not included) works well also. I will buy more of these in the future. It's a great all-purpose pen.
