You may not have seen this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jf3lbhQR6I)of the Lamy manufacturing process. I can see why Lamy Safaris are relatively cheap.

Thanks for sharing that, Yorky. Very high-tech stuff!
I'd say Lamys are inexpensive, but I'd never call them cheap! :wink2:
The 4 Safaris I have are my favorite pens and I'm considering a more expensive model for just writing.

I can see why Lamy Safaris are relatively cheap.

Perhaps you could equally have said -"I can see why they are so widely used & respected" because they most certainly are.
In engineering this degree of automation results in a superior product , as I'm sure you already know.
In many fields the human eye , judgement & touch can offer a real benefit to the finished product , but not in this instance.
I've got a Lamy safari 20 years old & the two spare nibs too, I still fill it up regularly to sketch with & probably always will.
I would have preferred to see the human touch producing such perfection ! but thanks for that link - interesting I had no idea.

Thanks for the video, Doug. Amazing company. I have and enjoy my Lamy because you introduced me to them ten years ago.
