LAMY Safari Fountain Pen - Charcoal. The LAMY Safari fountain pen is probably LAMY's most recognizable and well-known pen design. Developed in the early 1980s, the LAMY Safari has a modern look and feel. The large and prominent clip on the Safari is the one of the most noticeable features on the pen and is strong enough to secure the pen onto your notebook or pocket without fear of getting shaken off with movement or activity. LAMY Safari also comes with an ergonomic grip, which has two flattened sides for you to comfortably rest your fingers while holding the pen. The pen barrel is rounded but not completely circular- it has two flat sides to prevent the pen from rolling around when placed down on a flat surface, and includes an indicator window that allows you to check on the ink levels in your pen so you know when you are running low. LAMY Safari fountain pen is one of the most popular choices for a first fountain pen and many fountain pen lovers continue to return to this pen as an everyday carry since it has a sturdy construction, a strong and secure clip and is relatively lightweight.
