Hi folks,

 

Lamy Safari Petrol is here!

 

Fountain pens come with black Fine or Medium nib (feel free to add any Z50/Z52 nibs of course).

They have matt finish, just like Dark Lilac pens.

 

There are Roller-balls and Ball-point pens too. Ink comes in T10 cartridges and T52 bottles

Petrol colour is dark teal-green  B) similar to Sailor Miruai. It shows a slight sheen on Tomoe River paper.

 

BTW if you wonder about shipping cost - we use Royal Mail Airmail service for orders outside UK and you can check the cost in the shopping basket before you place the order.

 

Enjoy!

 

Mishka

Cool phots (especially second one). I'm not sure about the colors but I'll try them, both ink and pen.

Blimey, you have to move fast... I will order pen and cartridges then. Are you definitely getting more of the ink in for May? Any chance of reserving a bottle?

Thanks Mishka, it's really good that you guys communicate with your customers as you do, head and shoulders above the many faceless generic online retailers.

Mine arrived today. The color is different from most of the photos that I've seen.  I bought a bottle of iroshizuku tsuki-yo to use in it. It's perfect!

 

The pen wrote well as soon as I inked it up. I do like it.

I have been writing with mine all week, on the crappy paper we use for documents at work it appears almost black, my rhodia shows up the greenish tint.

Its no Dark Lilac or Copper Orange but is way better than the Charged green or Neon lime disasters.

I have no idea whether this means my order is now unfulfilled.  If I am now in some sort of queue how do I cancel the order?

Thank you! I've just ordered mine. :)


So space and time are linked together. As we are looking across space, we are looking back in time. The further and further away those stars are the further back in time you are looking. Now you are seeing a star that is say six thousand years ago. Imagine somebody at that star looking at us They would be seeing us as we were six thousand years ago. Which of those two is now? - Alan Parsons Project The Time Machine - Temporalia (Paraphrased)

That Petrol ink color looks very interesting.  Definitely will order a bottle to go with the Petrol Lamy I just received.
