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...

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 Smooth pen

I never taught an ink pen could be this smooth. This is my 1st fountain pen had used hero pen when i was 4th grader. this is really good. It does not come with ink converter. you have to buy cartridges/converters or you have to use syringe for filling.

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.

first to review
scribble

I have this pen with me though not brought from flipkart.
This is the best pen for a novice user who has graduated with low cost pens and after damaging few nibs :).
U will sense the flow of this machine once u write with this.
Best thing is it is very light ,yet the ABS grade plastic on the body is tough like a rock.
The nib is chrome and this needs grinding for 5-6 kms to feel heavenly.

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.

Pretty Good!!

The Lamy Vista Safari is a simply a joy to write with. Ever since i purchased it i have been nothing but impressed by its performance. The build quality is great, the grip awesome (my old Parker felt weird in my hand after i had used the Lamy) and the writing is smooth and rather consistent.

Love it!

I'm a big fan of fountain pens. Having the right nib, the right hold is very important, well at least to me. And this Pen was the perfect solution for what I was looking for. Was strongly recommended by a few friends earlier. All I can say...Should've listened to them earlier. (View complete review)

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 th...

Lamy Vista Safari Fountain Pen - Medium Nib

Just like any other pen. My old parker beta fountain pen (cost= Rs 150/-) is any day better and smoother than this one. This LAMY pen leaves gaps when it writes. Rs 1200/- gone down the drain. (View complete review)
