Love these videos! You guys are too funny together. I do have several Safaris and I like them. I've did have issues with a 1.1 nib, but Goulet Pens replaced it and it's been fine ever since. I love that they are affordable, the nibs are easy to swap out, and come in so many pretty colors - where's the purple, Lamy??? I have the converter, but I don't use it. I reuse the cartridges for bottled ink and it works quite well.

They aren't widely available here (in the US), except online. Our office supply stores carry mostly gel pens and ballpoint pens. I love seeing the fancy, expensive pens - they're gorgeous - but I just can't fit them into my tiny budget.

That being said, although I love my Safaris, the Pilot Metropolitan is my favorite pen these days. Is it Serious Nibbage worthy?? What do you think?

I think you guys are great! These videos are funny and smart. I am glad you are both working together on them.

I do have a little collection. My first fountain pen (when I was getting into them a couple of years ago) was the Lamy Vista. I bought two of them. Then I think I fell for the Aquamarine (which was not so rare then). After that, I talked the hubby to buying me an AL-Star Ocean Blue. Since then I have picked up the Neon and every now and then someone will sell one I don't have on FP Geeks (got a couple of pens with the black clips that way). Sometimes I will buy ones I want if the person is also selling nibs and converters and it seems the package is worth that. So, I have quite a few now. But it has let me explore nibs I normally would not pick immediately (like the bigger italic nibs and the broad and medium nibs), and I have found that I like those nibs.
