'Our' history.

 

I like black. I also think the 27 is a classic design of the period.

Hi Dick, et al,

I agree on both counts. I like black... especially on Cadillac's... but it looks good on pens, too.

That said, I would still love to see a bronze or olive/moss green L2K. :)
With thanks to my Mom & Dad; who taught me to run free, but not run wild.

Please pray the Rosary daily. :)

Grab life with both arms and give it a bear hug every day! :D

I love those early Lamy ads. There was a German one that said, the design is not everyone. I wish they had stuck with that philosophy.

Great lineup of pens. Still up to date ... great design lasts forever. I will at some point get a black cp1 again
