Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 155

Continuing on from yesterday's blog post, here's a classic Lamy writing instrument familiar to many - the Lamy 'Safari fountain pen, specifically the brand-new "Terra Red" model, one of two new 'Safari' colours for 2021. This one was recently acquired by Stuart from the Vancouver Pen Shop...

Stuart: "I got the 40th Anniversary LAMY Safari in Terra Red yesterday! I like the colour, it’s very distinctive, and I love the black clip and nib to contrast with it. I went with a Broad nib - I usually get the 1.5mm italic on Safari’s, but the italic nibs only come in the standard chrome finish, and just don’t look as good on this pen. The Broad is nice, not too large but gives good depth and shading to inks, and makes a nice strong line that’s not overbearing for handwriting." 


"I filled it with Monteverde Fireopal, which as you can see from the pics, is a good match."

Stuart: "The shot of the nib is a bit blurry, partly from all the cropping I did to pull it in close, but you can see the big round tip.  I’m happy with this pen, it’s “just another Safari” but looks great and writes well." 

 Our thanks to Stuart for sharing this new purchase with us!
