Pen Cleaning Day = Lamy Photo Op Day!

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

What My Pens Are Named – Part 1

These are the first three fountain pens I ever bought – so of course, I gave the trio matching names.

This is my very first fountain pen ever, the Lamy Safari Charcoal bought back in December 2008 at a local art store – I named all my pens, so because of this one’s charcoally nature and because I love the movie, it was dubbed The Dread Pirate Roberts.

Seriously, before a week was out I’d bought my second fountain pen, the Blue with black clip. Because it was so very deep blue, of course it became Indigo Montoya, a play on the movie’s Inigo Montoya. Shown here is the silver clipped version, technically Indigo Montoya II.

Who else could my third pen be but Princess Buttercup?? Again the II. The first one with the black clip somehow got some contaminated ink and has smelled gross ever since, no matter how I clean it. So she’s currently in quarantine indefinitely – this is Princess Buttercup II. I’ll start posting more pics of my pens and their names eventually, but this concludes the Princess Bride Trilogy.

My Lamy is Tardis Blue.

My Lamy Safari fountain pen is the perfect shade of tardis blue.

Hero: the Lamy Safari Clone

Comparisons of the Hero Lamy Safari clone against other Lamys. The Hero with M nib is filled with Diamine Ancient Copper – the Lamy Safari with M nib is filled with Diamine Majestic Purple. Just because it pleased me, bwahahaha!

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?
