The Lamy Safari fountain pen is our most popular Lamy pen, an excellent writing instrument at an everyday price
The Safari fountain pen has been a long-time best-seller for us, and it is easy to see why. It comes highly recommended by so many people, from schools to fountain pen aficionados. The appeal of the Safari is simply that it writes as well as many fountain pens worth several times the price.

Hi, I had a Lamy Safari pen years ago, I am left handed but just had an ordinary nib and it seemed fine. I want to order a Lamy pen but would it actually be better to order a left handed one this time? Thanks
Bureau replies: one of the best features of Lamy Safari pen is how easy it is to swap the nib :) I'd recommend trying both - writing is very personal, so you may be fine with normal nibs. LH nibs are fine/medium nibs which are cut under an angle to help lefties.
Does this price include any rifill? What color of the ink?
Bureau replies: Lamy Safari fountain pens come with one blue (washable) ink cartdidge.
Hi there, love your stock. Any chance you'll get in any more special edition Dark Lilac? If so can you notify or put aside one with a fine nib for me? Thanks Caz
