4 LAMY fountain pens quickly compared. LAMY Safari, LAMY Vista, LAMY Al-Star, LAMY Studio for how to pronounce "LAMY", see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00p7pV...

I don't like this video, because these pens deserve their own videos each... Plus I've bought more LAMYs (when in doubt, buy a LAMY!)... Oh, and if you see a dating add looking for a lady who is OK with obsessive spending on trinkets-that's me after my divorce! :)

1/22/2013: Since this video, I have resolved all the issues noted here with nib adjustments. A brand new pen doesn't have the fins full, either. Pens seem to be like car engines... They really don't come into their own performance-wise until much later after you use them new.

The Safari and Vista are literally the same pen. You're getting different results probably because of a bad feed. Same with the al-star, the only difference is the material it is made of! And it's called a converter... How To Say 'Lamy'- Ink Nouveau and please watch this
It's very nice and wonderful.
Hey, I just uploaded an unboxing and first impression video on my EF Lamy safari in Charcoal Black. I'd really appreciate it if you checked out my video. Thanks :) http://youtu.be/YvIo0X1ouUk
where do you buy your pens?? I found the Lamy Vista online for about $30 :/
All but the original Americans came from somewhere in the UK, even Ireland was, rightly or wrongly considered part of the United Kingdom. Yes "mother" is the correct term, like "mother earth".

I certainly don't have that Pelikan! Maybe YOU should do the comparison video! It isn't hard! :)

The Studio (I call it a Signature below (I can't stop doing that!) is much, much heavier than it's plastic cousins (Safari and even Al-Star-which is aluminum). Check out the LAMY Factory video out, too... I fav'd it, I think but don't know how that works for others...

I appreciate it! And to answer your question, yes this a pic of myself, doing a bit of climbing at Crowder's Mountain in NC. Now that you mention it, I would like, at least, a comparison between the Lamy Studio and the (discontinued) Pelikan Füllhalter Technix (I think it's called?). I have both, and I'm trying to decide which to keep and which to give as a souvenir from Germany.
The Sales Engineer
I have a 'mother country'?! :)

Will(Is that you in the profile pic?!?!), I am grateful that you 'get it'. If people would spend time making videos instead of voting others' down, they would make this a better place. You can't get a more honest review of something that interests you than from someone who shares that same interest. I learn a LOT from other videos, and encourage those that drop by to make their own! Thanks for sharing, and if you want a special FP vid, just ask! Thanks again... -pat :)
