    Betcha its a Lamy Safari rollerball in charcoal. They're not bad except usually need to use a Lamy refill. The other issue with this one as well as the Lamy Safari Fountainpen is that the caps are held in place via friction related to an o-ring on the barrel. I've had the caps loosen up and the only fix was buying a new cap; price usually was about 50% the cost of an entire rollerball or fountain pen (as the case may be).

    Hasn't stopped me from having several Lamy Safari fountain pens in my collection though! ;)

    L'chaim!

    Safaris are sweet pens. Just bought the fountain pen couple of weeks ago, it makes me feel I'm 15yo again [​IMG]

    It is in fact a Lamy Rollerball pen but I assure you that a G2 refill fits.

    I found the Energel pen but found that it won't write now. Pilot G2 for the win!

    I've seen a lot of pens with o rings on them. How long do those last before breaking, and where do you get more? Also, how would I figure out the size needed for a pen?

    I've owned a number of pens that have o-rings (tactical/kubaton type) and have only had to replace a couple of the o-rings over the years. How long they'll last really is down to how often you open/close pull apart screw/unscrew the pen's cap/body to wear them out and when/if you keep them lubricated.

    I bought an assortment kit of o-rings off ebay years ago, and there are a lot of different materials diameters/thicknesses to choose from, and I just picked a replacement that looked close to the ones that broke.
