Pen Cleaning Day = Lamy Photo Op Day!

Sunday was pen cleaning time, perfect for some Lamy Safari fountain pen love.

The Underrated Black n’ Red Notebook

Some examples of my quotes notebook, I keep it with me to always be ready to jot down something without regard for handwriting or notating ink colors or anything. I LOVE this Black ‘n Red Notebook, it has amazingly good paper for fountain pens and is super affordable to boot. It’s at most office supply stores like Office Depot or Staples, and is seriously underrated I think.

Lamy Red-Clip Love

Giving some love to these less-often used pens in my collection, the 2004 Flame with red clip and the 2006 Royal Blue with red clip.

What My Pens Are Named – Part 2

Next in line is the limited edition blue with red clip – my 5th pen, and I found it in ebay back in 2009 for a steal before the prices became crazy high for it. I’m telling you, nothing has enabled this Lamy addiction for me as much as Ebay has. Anyways, as soon as I saw the great sky blue with red cap detail, I knew. Who else could it be but Papa Smurf?? I still really love the blue, and sometimes go back and forth about wishing it had a silver clip too – have to be honest, the red doesn’t always do it for me. But I love it anyway. So, feel free to sing the Smurfs theme song every time you see this pen now.

Come on Lamy, we need purple!

Recently bought the Hero clone of the Lamy Safari, aka, the “Fauxfari” (credit goes to somebody online I can’t remember haha), and it’s okay. It was affordable, writes very smoothly, but is a noticeably different quality from the regular Lamy line. When taking a picture of the whole collection, it really highlights why a purple color is needed! Come on Lamy, what gives?
