Today is the first anniversary of Whatever and we are going to celebrate with a little giveaway.
But first a little about these pens. I'm sure that if you are a fountain pen user, or if you have read this blog before, you recognize them. They are an Orange Lamy Safari and a Lamy Vista. The only real difference between these pens is that the Vista is a clear Demonstrator version of the Safari.
The beauty of these pens is many: they are inexpensive, about $30 USD retail; the nibs are interchangeable and are available in silver steel: EF, F, M, B, Italic 1.1, Italic 1.5 and Italic 1.9; or in black steel: EF, F, M, B, OM, OM, LH. This allows the experienced or novice user to experience a full range of nibs for a fairly low price.
Many of you here are aware I have three Safaris: Hot Pink, Lime Green and a wonderful gray, that I acquired as parts directly from Lamy, since the pen was no longer available. I received the Vista from a dear friend as a Christmas present and the Orange Lamy was an impulse purchase while I was out at the only local pen store.
That being said for some reason I never really bonded with this Orange Safari. Maybe it's the Irish in me... so what's the giveaway??
The orange Lamy Safari shown here with an M nib. To have a chance to win this pen please follow the rules carefully:

Good luck and thank you for reading.
