Almost 2 weeks with this and VERY Satisfied.

Its about a week I've been using this LAMY. It haven't stained my hands with ink even ONCE. One luxury that standard fountain pens, and not even ball pens, provide. It hasn't slowed my hand writing. The only "problem" I found with this pen is that it doesn't write if the nib isn't straight, since this does not have a rounded nib. The writing is the smoothest I've felt on any pen ever. One tip for those, like me, who can't afford the expensive LAMY ink cartridges(which are the only ones that fit this pen) is to refill the cartridge that came with it with a syringe. 1.5 ml should be fine. I use black Camlin ink with this and it hasn't affected the quality whatsoever. This is definitely a good buy for those who want a real good fountain pen but can't spend much. Its totally worth the rs. 1500.

Good Pen

I bought this pen through Flipkart and using it for more than a month now. I'm happy with this pen.
The pen is smoothest when holding the nib facing the paper flat. Not much smooth at angles. The build quality and the materials used are up to the standard.

Suggestion : purchase the converter (Z24) and buy good quality inks.
I use black inks. Camlin, Parker and Bril are note really black, they are just shades of grey.
Chelpark is bad, it has some chemicals which can spoil your pen ( I had bad experience in my Hero fountain pens with chelpark )

Good quality inks are costly, but I recommend it since they dry very fast, their colors wont fade and it wont destroy the pen

I'm using sheaffer ink. Private reserve and Lamy are also good but bit costlier.

Regards,

Savin

Before buying Lamy Safari, compare Kaweco, read reviews & decide

Lamy Safari is okay. But do not forget reading pen collectors' reviews for comparison of Lamy with Kaweco (Heidelberg/Nurnberg, Germany, started in 1883).

I used both. If you think Lamy is smooth, try Kaweco, you will know what you have been missing. Unfortunately Flipkart+WS Retails, though they are official dealer of Kaweco in India, have a dwindling stock now.

Kaweco Student is far better, in terms of flow and smoothness, than Lamy Safari. In fact some expert users and collectors, have used quite harsh words, against Lamy while comparing it to Kaweco. Search a little and you will find those reviews.

In addition, in India Flipkart initially kept the price for Kaweco fairly attractive, vis-a-vie other international brands.

A wonderful instrument in an ugly package!

It has to be the ugliest pen I own, with its pretend matt black finish and ridiculous clip; however, it has crept into my rotation because of its butter soft nib. I wouldn't carry it around because of its less than impressive design and large breather hole, which leads to ink leakage.
If you're a well disciplined student who doesn't throw his pens and bag around, I would definitely recommend this pen to you. It allows for faster and more comfortable writing.
Thanks flipkart for making me lazier than I already am by providing a vast selection of products, and quick and reliable shipping. I'll never have to leave my room again!

overrated

I did not buy this from flipkart. The pen in itself is robust and unassuming. The ink is costly, so are the cartridges. But that is expected. My only complaint is that it does not write well at an angle. At times, it fails to write when you are writing in a haste. I tried diluting the ink, cleaning the pen with warm water, but could not correct the short coming.
It might be a one off phenomenon, but I think a buyer is entitled to read the flip side as well.
