    I have to say this Ice Sport is perfect to EDC imo small enough to disappear in my pocket and writes amazing! KAMM if you're looking for a FP that will fit in the pocket easily I would look at one. With the cap on its about the same length as a Fisher stowaway.

    Oh, I forgot to mention that there is an optional clip if you wish to have one. :) Sorry I didn't tell you that sooner!

    Gold

    Silver

    :p While you're at it, pick up a rollerball ice (and/or pencil) to match! They also use the same cartridges, so feel free to customize your rollerball inks as well! Whooo! Then get free shipping w/ $25.00 + purchase. ;) Gotta love JetPens.

    I've been enjoying fountains pens for about 9 years now. I have horrible penmanship but I enjoy sitting down to write with one of my pens. I concentrate on letter formation and forget all the crap going on around me. I use fp exclusively for my journal and have found EDC with them fairly easy and spill free (knock wood) to this day.

    My only experience with fountain pens are with the disposable Pilot Varsity. I like the way it writes enough, but it seems impractical for my needs. The majority of my writing is a quick note to employees or initials on an invoice, often with the paper braced against a wall or side of a box. Curiosity (and reading through threads like this) still have me researching and window shopping, though. Maybe one day.

    Used fountain pens exclusively for some years, because I liked square nibs (chisel?) for drawing and they held up to the abuse of my (awful) handwriting. Quit using them in college, as I just tossed my pens in the bag and they kept breaking...

    Might be time to try my hand with them again... And under 20€ for a Safari it won't be a big loss if I don't get used to it...
    :censored:... here we go again... :(

    For some reason I've always mistrusted fountain pens.

    The safari is nice. Planning on buying some ink so better customize it to what I'm attempting to look for in a fountain pen. :)

    YOU KNOW WHAT?! :) Since seeing the green one makes me sad about selling my lime green one and I don't like many of the other colors (other than charcoal... maybe blue). :D When (not "if") I get around to it, my next Safari purchase will have to be a WHITE one with BLUE ink! :D

    WHITE SAFARI + BLUE INK, FUSION....

    Most likely Legal Lapis, yes. :p Gotta love that color. :)

    O_O Maybe the Legal Lapis + Purple mix? That would look pretty nice too! Anything looks nice coming out of the white Safari, really. :p It really depends. I think I might get the white one with a 1.1 stub nib.

    Hrm...
