IF: Safari

My Lamy Safari pen, that is. I picked this up a few weeks ago. (This drawing was done with another pen, while I was holding the Safari.) I was curious about drawing with it. But to be honest, I haven't really embraced it yet. I've noticed that I have to draw with more pressure to get the same line weight. Maybe it is the combination of the extra fine nib and the colour of the ink - which give the line a more weaker appearance to the line.

Do any of you draw with a Lamy? What do you think about them?

  2. I have a Lamy Safari. I use it sporadically, depending on what sketchbook I'm using. Mine is a fine tip, I think. It took me a while to find an ink that worked for what I was using the pen for, but once I did I really liked it.

    I think pens are fussy things; everyone has their particular needs and preferences. I feel like I'm always searching for The Ultimate Pen!

  3. I almost cried when my favourite pens went out of production... still looking for a satisfactory replacement, perhaps I'll try a Lamy.
