I like Lamy Safaris, and I have a fair number of them. Can I talk about them for an entire week?

Today I want to talk about the design of the Safari. Even defend it. You cannot read about fountain pens on the internet without knowing that some people just hate the looks of the Lamy Safari.  You often hear it stated baldly: “It’s ugly.”

  1. I used to be one of those people who think it’s ugly, but you totally just made me *like* the Safari!

    The way you talk about it, the way you photographed it…you really made me see the appeal! It might never rank as high for me as its relative the Sheaffer No-Nonsense but you did boost it about ten spots ahead in my faves list 🙂
