The Safari pen casing made from ABS plastic, in various colours - a very resilient material with a lid fitted with an automatic spring-action metal clip that’s chrome plated.

  2. LAMY pens have grips with age-appropriate ergonomics. This promotes a secure grip when writing and prevent cramping in the fingers, enabling the development of legible handwriting.
  3. Writing with a fountain pen promotes the capacity for coordination and concentration.
  4. LAMY Safari Pens provides a stable, quality experience, encouraging the child to focus on letter formation. The fountain pen slows down writing movements considerably. This means that children work more carefully.
  5. LAMY Safari smooth-running rollerballs enables faster writing.   

LAMY produce wide-ranging pen varieties, for all writing needs – even for left-handers.

What nibs are available for the LAMY fountain pen? Do LAMY make left handed pens?

LAMY have developed special nibs: unlike right-handed people, those who are left-handers, have to push rather than pull their writing instrument over the paper. Lamy has developed special left-handed nibs for this, with a tapered tip. Even left-handers can therefore benefit from the advantages of fountain pens for learning to write. 4 different nibs facilitate this:

  • A steel nib with a spherical tip – especially for writing novices (LAMY abc, LAMY nexx)
  • LH steel nibs with a tapered tip – especially for left-handers (LAMY abc, LAMY nexx)
  • M steel nibs with a medium-width tip (LAMY nexx)
  • F steel nibs with a fine tip (LAMY nexx)
