Writing with the Lamy Safari is much different than I had envisioned. I assumed, quite incorrectly, that it would feel somewhat similar to writing with the Kaweco Ice Sport. However, it has a much different feel. It might be because I am using a good ink, or that the Safari is much longer, even before posting, but the Kaweco has more of a glide feel to writing.
The Safari is definitely a nice pen. But I am reminded of the movie The Cutting Edge. A hockey player can ice skate, but its not the same as an ice skater who is an Olympian.
