About Aqua Sky Lamy Special Edition Safari

The Lamy Safari Special Edition features colors that date back to the original release. The Lamy Safari's timelessly modern design created a stir during its original launch in the early 1980's. With black accents (including the prominent, spring-loaded clip and black steel nib), this avant-garde design is about to be more popular than ever.

The Lamy Safari fountain pen has a plastic cap and body with a stainless steel nib (black stainless steel for the 1st two 2021 Special Edition Lamy Safari fountain pen releases). Each pen comes with a Lamy ink cartridge and is compatible with a Lamy LZ28 converter (for use with bottled ink).

Bottom Line Up Front: Great starter pen for the price. It is a Lamy Safari, so you know (or should if you have held one before) that it is well made, utilitarian in its design, and whether you love or hate the grip. Color choices are subjective.

Product Quality: 5 – Excellent
I know that the term “German Engineering” is often overused, but there is a reason for it. While the pen is made from ABS Plastic and is extremely light, it feels solidly built. No matter what I do, the pen feels solid in my hand. Even when I knock it around a little, I do not feel I have to worry about the nib or the barrel. The cap feels solidly placed when capped onto the barrel. The fact that Lamy places a spacer between the barrel and the feed to ensure the cartridge does not accidentally open while in transit shows the level of thought and tolerances put into the pen.

Product Functionality: 4 - Above Average
Where the pen falters a little is the grip. The triangular grip is either a love it or hate it situation. I love it as I don’t have to think about where to put my fingers when I uncap the pen, I just plug and write. What I don’t like is the size of the grip. It feels a bit small for people with larger hands (which is kind of hypocritical as the reason the smaller feeling grip is the triangular placement I like, go figure). You can tell from the way the pen is designed that it was made to be very practical. Snap cap, simple metal clip, ABS plastic where you can see the position where mold finished, the pen was made to be simple, practical, and yet reliable.

While I have had issues with their chrome plated nibs, I have yet to have any issues with their black nibs and have made sure that all of my Safaris sport a black nib. Furthermore, the ease of which you can swap out nibs not only adds to their functionality, but also value.

Finally, the amount of ink that their cartridges hold is hard to beat in comparison to some other manufacturers. And if you like using bottled ink, you can do what I do and just clean out the cartridge and use a syringe to put your bottled ink into the cartridge, thereby having a large amount of your favorite ink.

Product Style: 4 – Above Average
The pen was made to be simple, practical, and yet reliable. Can either be a plus or minus, depending on your feelings. But the fact that Lamy comes out with different limited editions, there is little denying that you can find a pen that meets your color palate!

Product Value: 5 – Excellent
When you consider the price of the pen, the ease with which you can swap out nibs, the solidly built design, and the plethora of colors the Safari can come in, I think the value is nigh unbeatable. Further, with the right discounts you can get the pen for a really good price.

I put a Lamy 1.5mm Italic nib on this pen and loaded it with a Lamy red cartridge because I forgot to order a converter. The red of this pen pairs nicely with the Lamy red ink. I am enjoying this pen a lot!

This is a superb pen. No complaints, smooth writing, effortless refilling. This is my number 1 pen. Never disappoints. I'm definitely ordering more of these. And the colors on the pen really pop!

Ordered the piston fill Converter for bottled ink. Could not be happier with the purchase! Stone cold predictable in how the pen writes and the colors cool.
