I checked that Coffee on an Al Star. Fleabay must be listening. Going for around $100.  I like the Blue-green too.

Aquamarine.  1.5 italic for fun.


Then, the charcoal with EF for actual writing.

I found a Ruby Al-Star yesterday for the original price. Nabbed it immediately.

I also bought the Neon Coral Safari and the Blue-Green Al-Star for my cousins. LOVE the colours. I wish I had gotten one for myself, too, and now I am on the hunt.

Yellow. It is the color of my first Lamy. It's a cheerful color and makes for a happy pen.

I have a Graphite and a Ocean Blue AL-Star, and a Matte Black Safari and I like them all.

Someday like to find a Forest Green Metallic AL-Star to add to the mix.

I currently have inked a neon yellow filled with Diamine Ultra Green, and just filled this year's blue-green al-Star with Akkerman # 26 Groenmarkt Smaragt. Then there's the matt (now semi-matt from handling) black al-Star with a a Lamy black cartridge in it, and of course the silver al-Star with a Lamy blue cartridge.


Which is my favourite? Which day of the week is it?

I think next years copper orange is the colour that has finally convinced me to try one of these again.

Coffee for the Al-Star and Apple Green for the Safari.

I was lucky to find the Coffee color in 2012 when the Ruby Red came out.  I got it at amazon.co.uk.  Then I got the Ruby Red because it looked so pretty.  It is too.  But I immediately thought the Coffee color when I saw the title of this thread.

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!


I am currently using my neon yellow safari. I love it.

Al Star: Coffee definitely!

Safari: It's a tie between the apple green, lime, yellow and orange.
