Considering the ever expanding colors and editions of the Lamy Safari/ Al-Star lineup, I was wondering what colors are the most sought after here on FPN. Do you own that particular favorite or are you looking for it?

In my personal case, it's got to be the Coffee Al-Star and the NK-edition Charcoal with red clip. What's yours?

And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

White for me. I love the grey accent of the cap button, and inks always look better coming out of it.

That'll be the Aquamarine, and yes, it looks quite nice and stands out from the other colors.

I'm loving the neon yellow special edition... But I haven't pulled the trigger on one yet because I'm trying to avoid a "collect them all" mentality around my Safaris. That way lies madness!

It's quite nice out here in the sunshine...

I covet the Ruby Red Al- Star. They come up on Ebay for prices in the $80.00 range.

Last time I checked, they're going for more than $140!!! (at least those pens from Canada/ USA). I want one badly.

There's a pen shop here that still carries the white Joy. If my mind is not betraying me, they have the gift set with the pack of cartridges and two nibs with sections. Check here: miguelangel.com.mx

Hello Everyone,

 

This one is my vote as well; altough I'm also fond of the current Ocean Blue issue.  The Champagne and Coffee are also quite nice... and they also go with my eyes.  :rolleyes:    Then again, the current LE blue-green is a neat color and so is...... :huh:   NUTS!!  I kind of like them all!!  (Except the fire engine red Safari - I don't think I'll ever own that one).

 

Best regards,

 

Chris

Right now it would have to be my pearl Al Star. Took me a while to deal with the chrome clip and the gold pen but we've overcome that hurdle now! Having said that I have the coffee one in the mail, cant wait to add that one to my collection. Ive seen the ballpoint version a couple of times in real life and Im completely in love with that colour.

Hello Jenifermarie,

 

I know just what you mean - I used to drive through a neighborhood where someone owned a gold Chrysler with a silver vinyl top - every time I saw that car, I cringed a little.  :D

 

Best regards,

 

Chris
