Lamy’s Safari Charcoal Collection (you get to pick between a rollerball pen, ballpoint pen or mechanical pencil) isn’t a collection of the nicest writing implements you’ll ever own, but they’re the note-taking instruments you’ll have on you at all times. Each of the indispensable tools is made of matte charcoal ABS plastic with a comfort molded grip and a flexible brass clip for your pocket or bag. Unlike those other “nice” pens and pencils, these start at $25, can take a beating, won’t get you angry if you lose them and, most importantly, they look really good. In our minds, that’s better than being considered “nice.”
