Our new guest blogger Kath is amanuensis and can’t imagine her live without fountain pens. She got in touch with us when she was looking for a new fountain pen to replace her favourite Sheaffer pen. She writes a lot and being a left-hander, she needed reliable and ergonomic pen so we suggested she tried a Lamy Safari Apple Green fountain pen. Kath was very kind and wrote her first review as a Guest Blogger. Keep an eye out for upcoming pen reviews from Kath and get in touch with her on Twitter (
I am an amanuensis for the second largest college in Europe. For almost 20 years I have only bought Waterman and Sheaffer Fountain pens but as all things in life move on, when I needed to buy new nibs for my pens I found to my sheer horror that replacement nibs cost £125 upwards.
So, I trolled the internet searching for new pens and I found I Love Pens eBay shop and this is where I found the Lamy Safari Fountain pen.
To my delight its ergonomic design that Lamy have made make this pen very comfortable for left handers like myself; Lamy have shaped it perfectly so that it rests gently on the second finger without causing pressure, which is ideal if you have to write on reams of paper as I do.
This Lamy Fountain pen is light, comfortable and it flows very smoothly with a medium nib. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys handwriting.
Thank you Lamy, this pen is wonderful ~ Katheamanuensis
