After finally taking the plunge on a decent fountain pen with my lime green Lamy Safari, I decided it needed a friend to play with, so I brought home this charcoal body/black clip Safari with an extra fine nib. The lime green Safari had a fine nib and blue ink, so I also bought some black ink refills for something different. I know - I'm just crazy that way. ;)
The first thing I noticed about this model was the matte finish as opposed to the smooth finish of my other Lamy. It also felt just a fraction lighter. But the extra fine nib is what this fountain pen is all about, and honestly, it isn't that much different than the fine nib. If I was doing a blind test, I would hardly be able to tell them apart, other than the fact that the fine nib writes smoother. For sketching or drawing, I could probably notice a finer line, but since these pens will be used mostly for writing, I prefer the fine nib in my lime green Safari.
Now that I have my nib situation settled, I am going to have to get a converter and some interesting ink. What color should I start with?
