Any idea where to get one of those in the UK(the L-Techs, not the Rotring). I just saw it and fell in love.

They don't have any distributors in the UK (EU) as I know.
I don't really find them anywhere else, only on their webpage. frown.gif

Maybe we can get an EU group buy together so the shipping isn't so painful? Although inter country shipping in the EU hurts as well. Damnit!

Just ordered:

To give fountain pens a try. Don't know if I'll like them or not but seems like a reasonable price point to start off from~.

Step away when you can! 

 

I bought a fountain pen out of curiosity as well...

 

and now its another hobby of mine -_-

I went looking for the Lamy Logo, but ended up getting the Lamy Pur. Very sleek.

post #1748 of 2531

Congrats, I love the look of the Pur. If it had been in my budget, I'd be rocking it instead of the Logo, but for half the price, I can still enjoy it

The afternoon sun washed out all the colours in the pix. Looks much better on the desk. After I make a few more with improvements, the final version will be a red stiletto w/6" heels. evil_smiley.gif

I currently write with a cheap pilot v-pen, would a lamy safari be a huge upgrade in smoothness ?

post #1754 of 2531

I can't recall how much smoother, but it certainly was. Also, careful when selecting nib size - Lamy nibs are w-i-d-e compared to many Japanese nibs. Or, maybe Lamy nibs are normal and Japanese nibs tend to be on the finer side.
