really?  2014 pink is this year's color?

 

It was explained on this thread, Lamy Safari 2014? http://www.fountainp...my-safari-2014/

 

That the pink with black x cap is, now, a regular issue, part of the basic line of blue, red, yellow, black, white and matte charcoal.

 

In Lamy Germany, English language site, I saw that a rollerball, pencil and ballpoint have been issued in the same color, as it is customary for Lamy Safari standard colors.

http://www.lamy.com/eng/b2c/safari

 

The blue-green Al Star has been released but, I couldn't find any information about the 2014 Limited Edition Safari color.

 

I went to the Paperworld website, an office supply fair in Frankfurt, where the yearly Safari Limited Edition is usually unveiled.

 

The Paperworld website was confusing and I could not find Lamy as an exhibitor.

 

I went to various blogs related to office supplies, writing instruments... no news about the Safari 2014 color.

 

On the FPN thread I listed, twdpens said:" Lamy has not revealed its 2014 Safari colour yet. Source: Lamy sales employees (who didn't know either)."

 

The new Lamy Nexx color is the only one shown on the Lamy Germany, English language website.

 

I do not see the blue-green 2014 Al Star on that website, I first saw it on the "Lamy Safari 2014?" thread, linked above.

I have been following those threads as well. Doesn't Lamy usually announce their new limited color by this time?

Lamy usually annouces the new colors at the Paperworld fair, as I mentioned above.

 

This year, the announcements have been a little, lets say scattered, instead of a big one with all the new or limited edition colors coming out together and posted on the English language Lamy Germany website.

Wow, love that Blue Star (blue).  Is that really a deep navy blue metallic and it is an Al-Star?  Just beautiful!

I just went to the Lamy store yesterday day and say quite a few discontinued colours that have been mentioned. Also, I don't know if they still make those, but I also saw a Dialog 1 for sale.

I stumbled upon this beauty on Rakuten: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/the-article/item/l19wred/And I am very very tempted to get it. But, the descriptions on Rakuten are often more confusing than helpful... It says Lamy Joy, but the pics clearly suggest a Safari model. Can someone ID this Pen? Is this a real limited edition Safari or in fact a Joy?

This looks like the Japanese special version of Lamy Safari. The Japanese text under the pen clearly reads "Lamy Safari", so I guess they just got the English description wrong. It was initially (2010) made in 1000 numbered items and later (2013) in a non-limited version with plain cap, to which batch this one seems to belong.

Thanks, that helped a lot! I guess some Japanese Safari will be on it's way soon ;)

I recently posted a picture of most of my Lamy collection on Instagram.  Missing is the Lamy AlStar in Graphite.

 

The pen tray is from Montblanc (Mr. Pentulant found on eBay) and the pen holder is from MrMikeDudek / Dudek Modern Goods.  (No affiliation - love what he does - here's a link https://clickypost.s...om/the-store-1/ )

Have you bought from that site before? If so, how was the experience? I ask because I would love a white/red clip safari (only recently started collecting safaris).

And the two images above...ahh, wonderful! :)

So, is this one of the originals? reissue? or made of parts? What is a Union Pay card?

Sorry, was not on FPN for some time and did not see your question. I have bought via Rakuten previously and it was always perfect. Of course, it depends on the seller. Rakuten works like ebay or Amazon Marketplace - you are buying from different vendors, Rakuten provides only the "frame" (sorry, don't find a better word) of the shopping platform.

I quote Ogawas answer:

It was initially (2010) made in 1000 numbered items and later (2013) in a non-limited version with plain cap, to which batch this one seems to belong.

 

I also don't know what UnionPay is, but I found another vendor who accepts Paypal. Unfortunately some unforeseen circumstances forbid me buying fountain pens from the other end of the world, at least for now *sigh*.

We all start somewhere, and then again, many people here have been collecting pens for many, many years.

 

So what have you got?

Wow I'm amazed by the collections above! :yikes:  I wish I could have something like that one day. As for me, I've just started with my first Lamy Safari Charcoal Matte which to my disappointment doesn't seem to be writing well. But, that's a story for another day. Even if my first pen is not writing well, there's something about these pens that doesn't let me give up. :wub:
