I have been waiting all week on these pens and today they came in. Fast service from PenChalet.com.The dark lilac color is great and the grip makes it even better. I have never had a problem with the Lamy Safari grip but once you try this matte finish you will be impressed. I have ordered the ball point and some dark lilac refills for the fountain pen. First time in a while that I also picked up the fountain pen. This one has a medium nib. I will be looking forward to some great reviews on these pens.
