Petition For A Purple Lamy Safari


Ethereal Winter Wind
 Share

Recommended Posts

Well I've decided to start a petition requesting that Lamy makes a special edition purple Lamy safari. Every year when there speculation about what colour the next year's special edition Lamy safari will be and purple is always a popular request, and every year thus far Lamy has not made a purple one. Please help by signing this petition:

It is not really a demand like normal petitions, but a request and something to show that there is a lot of support behind this colour, in the end it is Lamy's choice as a business to whether they think it is something viable to produce. If there is enough of us maybe Lamy will take notice.

Love your mock up. I'd definitely buy a purple one. I already have two purplish Al-Stars.

I wonder what is their process of picking up new colors. I believe they do limited runs not only to increase sales to collector's and lovers of those colors, but because they have to look after their design. If they did a rainbow of Safaris readily available, the way we see their product will be much less exclusive and thoughtful. It will feel as generic mass-produced pens. These colors must relate to something contemporary, that is why they changed the Safari lineup over the years, and suddenly black clips in colored Safaris feel retro. Lamy not only follows fashion but they do fashion.

OK,purple would be nice for some, but how about a dark green or a chocolate brown??? And without the black clips which have a tendency to flake off so that the brass underneath shows. Or how about some others in a matte finish, or ..................

I rather like the neon coral. Is there a neon orange? Would be nice.

 

It might be this year's color, but it would be strange both the AL-star and Safari to have the same tone in the limited edition color. But they are releasing the orange ink, so, it is possible. Otherwise it would have to be neon green or neon blue and it would be very similar to the previous aquamarine and apple green. I wish it was matte dark brown or one of the 2 discontinued original colors.

Neon purple is doable.

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

Haha, it might just have to be a neon purple considering the lamy trend :P

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
