Lamy Safari Vs Pilot Metropolitan

Lamy Safari Vs Pilot Metropolitan

Both the Lamy Safari and Pilot Metropolitan fountain pens are extremely popular low cost fountain pens.

The Lamy Safari has a fibre glass (Polycarbonate Makralon) triangular body, that some find difficult to adjust to after using a round bodied fountain pen, although it is popular with a lot of people.

The Pilot has a brass body that is slightly heavier and round.

The nib on the Lamy Safari is not quite as fine as the finest Metropolitan nib, this is because the Lamy is European (German made) and the Pilot Metropolitan is Asian (Japanese made) and European fine nibs are broader than their Asian counterparts.

This means that the Lamy Safari is lighter than the Pilot Metropolitan, so it depends on your preference for weather you prefer a heavier or lighter pen to hold.

The Safari has a bigger clip that is probably helps it to be a bit more secure in your pocket.

Another feature is that the Safari has an ink window that is visible from outside the pen, that gives you a clear indication of when you will need to replenish your ink.

The Metropolitan comes with an ink converter, this can be a big advantage as you have the ability to swap from cartridge to bottled ink easily, wheras the Safari does not come with a converter although it can be converted. However the Metropolitan does not come with an ink window.

Both pens are very well made and people have reported dropping them without any damage to them.

Lamy Safari Review

Lamy Safari Review

The Lamy Safari fountain pen is made of moulded plastic.

It was designed by Wolfgang Fabian and Bernt Spiegel. It was first produced in 1980 and is still manufactured today. It is a non rounded design, with a cartridge/converter. produced with students in mind, although it is popular with more mature writers.

Lamy is a German company founded by Joseph Lamy in 1930 who was one of the first people to use moulded plastics to produce fountain pens.

This helped to make the production process cheaper and quicker than producing from brass or steel.

The Lamy 2000 is the company’s flagship fountain pen (produced in the year 1966).

It is the first fountain pen to use fibre glass (Polycarbonate Makralon).

It has a semi hooded nib. A commemorative version was produced in the year 2000 called the Edition 2000.

The Lamy Safari is popular because they feel good to write with, are very well made, people report dropping them and still having no trouble using them and have nibs that are smooth to write with.

As the pen is relatively inexpensive, a lot of people use this as a starter pen, but like it so much they still write with it even after they have purchased more expensive pens!

This pen comes with an ink cartridge but can easily be modified to use an ink converter – then it can use ink from a bottle.

The Lamy Safari comes in eight different colours: green, yellow, white, lilac,Umbra, red, blue and pink.
