I keep an eyedropper bottle with pen flush on hand . If a pen gets clogged I put a drop of pen flush on the feed and blot it on a paper towel. The pen should flow smoothly after that.
My father and I have been using fountain pens for years. Basically, the only way to keep the nib from drying and clogging that really works in a sustainable way over the long term is to simply use the pen often enough that the ink doesn't get a chance to dry.
Yeah, it might sound like useless "no-duh" advice, but that is my honest conclusion after years of dealing with the problem across two generations.
The same advice is true for inkjet printers whose ink cartridges dry up.

Anyway, there are a couple of tricks you can try if you aren't going to increase how often you write with the pen:

1) Take a dry paper towel and touch the back of the nib to it and soak the paper towel with about 1 sq. in. of ink. This will pull the somewhat thicker/drier ink through the nib into the paper towel, pulling fresh/wetter ink from the reservoir into the nib. It's basically the same as if you were writing more frequently but you waste the ink on the paper towel.

2) You can drop a tiny bit of distilled water on the nib with an eye dropper and then put the cap back on and let it sit until you use it next. The distilled water will replace the water that evaporated, staving off the drying-up of the nib a bit. Experiment with the amount of water you put on the nib to try to dial it in so that it's just enough water to prevent drying-up but not so much that the ink is made too light.

3) I use this trick on dried-up inkjet cartridge nozzles: it's basically 1+2) above. Wet a paper towel with distilled water, then wipe the nib. This will wash off dried ink, suck some thicker ink into the paper towel, and wet the nib with the distilled water.

This is a great pen! Especially for someone new to using fountain pens. You can interchange the nibs if you want, although you have to buy the different nibs.

Quick question, because I have a Lamy Safari and another very nice but unused fountain pen. How do you keep the nib from drying and clogging? I write when needed, which can range between a few times per week to once a few weeks, whether it's with a pencil or pen and my Lamy tends to need a thorough cleaning after a week or two before I can use it. Just curious if folks using these write with a pen more than me or if it is something I'm missing.

I keep an eyedropper bottle with pen flush on hand [ammonia/water solution]. If a pen gets clogged I put a drop of pen flush on the feed and blot it on a paper towel. The pen should flow smoothly after that.

It depends on what you have inked inside the pen and the pen itself. A week without writing seems roughly normal. I use my pen for notes so they don't typically dry out when capped. Except for shimmering (glitter) inks because those can get asthmatic when not written with at least once a day or two. Usually the pens aren't clogged so much as the ink on the nib dries, preventing fresher, wet ink from being fed. As someone else mentioned, wetting the tip will suffice. I use a bit of distilled water in a wash bottle

Throwback Thursdays, I have a couple that are around 30 years old.
I wish I could say they still write well, but I don't know. Haven't checked in about 20 years.

I love these "cheap" fountain pens. Cheap is relative because people spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on fountain pens. I'm a huge Lamy Safari fan. Great deal if you want to tinker with fountain pens. As far as Inks go, I like Noodler's 19001 Bullet Proof Black as it's water resistant and forgery resistant which makes it great for writing the occasional check.

Looks like a good deal.

I wish I had penmanship worthy of a fountain pen, unfortunately mine is that of a chicken scratching with two broken feet.
