You don’t have to spend a fortune to get into the world of fountain pens, and that much is clear with offerings like the legendary LAMY safari. Made out of charcoal-colored ABS plastic, the safari sports a sleek, timeless look, while remaining durable compared to other plastic offerings. The grip section of the pen comes in a triangular shape which helps with proper hand position, while the rest of its body features a circular shape with two flat faces, which prevents the pen from rolling off your desk.
There’s even a little window built into the body so you can look at how much ink in the included cartridge you have left. This version of the safari comes with a medium stainless steel nib, a great starting point for newbies and a good general-purpose size for experienced fountain pen users. Finally, the cap has a wire pocket clip on it, so you can attach it to a notebook, bag, or pocket to facilitate its everyday carry.
