Just use a metallic purple spray paint. Flat would look.... not as good, methinks. (Though, let's be honest, you do you and we'll all ooh and aah after the fact.)

Lamy Safari { Vista (M); Charcoal (M); Charcoal (1.1mm SI)},

Noodler's Ahab (Cardinal Darkness, Blue Poseidon Pearl, Clear Demo, King Philip Purple Demo)

Retro 51 Tornado EXT in Lincoln (copper) (M)

Metallic is a good idea. I was looking at that, yesterday, but I wasn't paying attention to the can I grabbed and when I got home realized I had bought a can of purple plasti dip. Oh well, back to Pep Boys.

Yes, petition now signed.

 

Purple Safari would be really really nice.

 

Purple 2000 would probably be still nicer (well, any coloured 2000, for that matter)

Signed.

 

I really wonder how many of the same colors we have to have before we get a nice purple one... 

 

plumista, a purple 2000 would be a dream come true! My favorite color and my favorite pen design together, blissful!

Another vote for a purple 2000! The special edition in red was gorgeous, but far too expensive for me.

Oh you mean the Johnny Ive one? I believe that was a one off and it sold for around 30k euros if memory serves. Out of the price range for about 99.9% of us :P

Yes that's the one. It was only 29,900 euros too expensive for me. ;)

You and me, both. It's actually my wife who drives me to seek out and obsess over collect various different Safari/Al-Star colours. She loves colour and gold trim furniture on her pens. 

 

(or at least that is what I tell myself)

OK, not a Safari purple, but... close enough, a decent substitute, for a fraction of the Lamy price?

 

This Hero 359 comes complete with three sections+three nibs (EF, F and M), and besides ink cartridges, and besides free shipment...

 

My "Purple Safari" second best, at least until a true Lamy is released, if ever.

Woohoo! The Purple Lamy safari has been announced! http://blog.gouletpe...al-edition.html I'm not going to say it was our doing, considering we only got to 50 signatures, but they did release it the year after this petition was started.
