The body is that of a Safari, but the nib is from a Lamy Unic. Apparently it had a semi-flex nib.
Yeah, I didn't know either. However, according to the post in which this picture was attached, the Safari's feed just can't supply the ink required for that kind of a nib.
The photo is not what I imagined when I read that - I was expecting to see a Rapidograph-style technical pen... now that would make for a fun discussion! :)
Side note - I bounce in and out of here periodically and don't follow the thread that intently... Anyone planning to jump on the LE wooden VP?
I use my VPs far less now that I'm in a slow office setting, but I'll still carry them as an out-and-about writing pen. I don't think I would have survived college without my trusty silver one. Not my favorite pen to look at, but it's grown on me as sort of an... awkward classic. I've never lost a cap either, but the VP is great for quick access, and quick 'closure,' keep the nibs from drying out. Probably my favorite feeling nibs as well. These days I mostly use Pelikans as I don't like the inconvenience of convertors, but I really don't like how wet they write and how broad their idea of an xf is. I'm still tempted by the wooden VP though... Love the feel of wood bodies!
When I began buying fountain pens I thought the hooded nibs looked ridiculous. Now I quite like the minimal design of the pens that have them.
That's part of the appeal about owning different fountain pens. You can change looks, nib grades, ink colours, filling systems to suit your mood. Much like music and audio gear.
