Cool topic -

 

There's also a charcoal Safari. And the transparent demonstrator is called Vista and is, for some reason, marketed as its own model.

 

I don't know if Al-Star counts - it's the same design as the Safari, but it's made out of aluminum and is also marketed as a different pen. It comes in it's own array of colors - silver-blue, graphite, silver, green, etc.

So here's what happened
While you were nappin'
I just went out for a snack
I was feelin' famished
And then I vanished...
But now I'm back

If I'm not mistaken, there are two orange models: the original Safari, and the later "Flame" LE with a red clip.

 

Regards, greg

Don't feel bad. I'm old; I'm meh about most things.

When they initially came out there were Savanna Green and

Terracotta Orange. Has anyone mentioned gray (whitish one, not charcoal)?

For Al-Star there was a limited color called "Blue Star". It was sold only in Itoya in Japan.

Interesting...that one looks like it came with a converter as part of the deal, too! To boot, it's a different converter than the ones they sell now!

Yeah, the person with green one says it came with a cartridge and converter. The converter looks like press-bar type. It might look better than current one in Vista :)

  • Terra Cotta Orange
  • Flame LE w/red clip
  • Blue SE w/red clip
  • Yellow
  • Gray
  • White
  • Vista (clear demonstrator)
Al-Star
  • Aluminum
  • Blue Aluminum
  • Green Aluminum
  • Graphite

Any more?

 

EDIT: to add colors.

I love my white Safaris (I bought two), they have a very jaunty Lord Vader's Stormtrooper look about them. :D

Isn't sanity really a one-trick pony, anyway? I mean, all you get is one trick, rational thinking! But when you're good and crazy . . . ooh hoo hoo hoo! . . . the sky's the limit!

Interesting.... can you still buy grey? (is it still in production?)

I think so, yes. The gray is still pictured on the Lamy USA website. I saw the gray pen at my local Paradise Pen store a few weeks ago. I'm fairly sure it was not the true white version, although upon first glance the gray appears to be white.

Found a photo of all the Safari colors together on this page. According to this page the names of the colors are:

  • Savanna Green
  • Terracotta Orange
  • Alpin (white)
  • Charcoal (black)
  • Safari (yellow)
  • Sky (blue)
  • Gray (gray)
  • Hot (red)
  • Flame (orange)
  • Royal Blue (blue with red clip)
According to this page, Gray has been discontinued, too. If you see one you should grab it!

This photo is missing Terracotta Orange and includes Vista.

 

I've been talking like a Safari expert, but I am not. I have had one Safari (which is MIA), an Al-Star (which I sold) and a Vista RB I use as a loaner pen :rolleyes: Safaris are so popular in Japan right now and I can find tons of information on Japanese web sites.

Thanks everyone.

 

Taki - that's just the picture I was looking for but would never have found because of the language problem.

I'm looking to purchase (replace) a flame (orange) Lamy fountain pen and having trouble finding one. Does anyone have an advice / suggestions? No luck with most of the stores found through Google, and no luck on eBay. Thanks.

I love the White one.... does anyone know where I can get one??? Preferably a bold, I will ask the Lamy rep that comes to my store if she knows where also??? I own a blaze with red clip in bold and a vista in medium (which I accidentally washed in the laundry) :)

I will ask around what nib size would you like???

I thought I might have one more to add to the list of Al-Stars.

 

I was in Berlin early last summer and saw a special edition Silver/Grey Al-Star with the signature of a certain football player.

 

Haven't got a pic at the moment as I didn't buy the pen, but I'll try do a search for some photos.
