Lamy Safari Colours
Posted 29 December 2006 - 22:50
Black, Blue, Red, Yellow, Orange, White, Vista, Al-star...
Posted 29 December 2006 - 23:36
And I thought of another one - the blue and red special edition.
Posted 29 December 2006 - 23:51
There's also a charcoal Safari. And the transparent demonstrator is called Vista and is, for some reason, marketed as its own model.
I don't know if Al-Star counts - it's the same design as the Safari, but it's made out of aluminum and is also marketed as a different pen. It comes in it's own array of colors - silver-blue, graphite, silver, green, etc.
So here's what happened
While you were nappin'
I just went out for a snack
I was feelin' famished
And then I vanished...
But now I'm back

Terracotta Orange. Has anyone mentioned gray (whitish one, not charcoal)?
For Al-Star there was a limited color called "Blue Star". It was sold only in Itoya in Japan.

Yeah, the person with green one says it came with a cartridge and converter. The converter looks like press-bar type. It might look better than current one in Vista
Posted 30 December 2006 - 03:23
So, it looks like we are up to this:
- Charcoal (black)
- Terra Cotta Orange
- Flame LE w/red clip
- Blue SE w/red clip
- Vista (clear demonstrator)
- Blue Aluminum
- Green Aluminum
- Blue Star
EDIT: to add colors.

I think so, yes. The gray is still pictured on the Lamy USA website. I saw the gray pen at my local Paradise Pen store a few weeks ago. I'm fairly sure it was not the true white version, although upon first glance the gray appears to be white.

- Savanna Green
- Terracotta Orange
- Alpin (white)
- Charcoal (black)
- Safari (yellow)
- Sky (blue)
- Gray (gray)
- Hot (red)
- Flame (orange)
- Royal Blue (blue with red clip)
This photo is missing Terracotta Orange and includes Vista.
I've been talking like a Safari expert, but I am not. I have had one Safari (which is MIA), an Al-Star (which I sold) and a Vista RB I use as a loaner pen Safaris are so popular in Japan right now and I can find tons of information on Japanese web sites.

Taki - that's just the picture I was looking for but would never have found because of the language problem.

I will ask around what nib size would you like???

I was in Berlin early last summer and saw a special edition Silver/Grey Al-Star with the signature of a certain football player.
Haven't got a pic at the moment as I didn't buy the pen, but I'll try do a search for some photos.
