I have not seen anything on the Safari but I noticed that The Goulet Pen Company has the Pacific Al-Star listed in their "coming soon" section for a February release.

The Petrol should follow around April. I guess it will take some time before there will be new official news.

Man, I really like them both!

 

Haven't had a new Lamy since I can't remember when...

Good morning! I just got an email from Susan at Goulet Pens. They will be receiving their shipment of Lamy Al-Star Pacifics next week! It doesn't appear as though the Lamy Safari's are going to marketed anytime soon, though.

Like I mentioned in a previous post, the OP photo of the pacifica was a bit misleading. Looked a lot more green than it is in real life. I think the pacifica is one of the best Al-Star colours with the chrome nib.

As I am excited for the new Safari I have browsed the internet for informations. I have actually found a picture of the Safari Petrol on the Lamy USA website. In the picture this pen looks amazing 👍🏻

I just bought the Pacific one, and i gotta be honest, for some reason it doesnt seem so pacific in reality. it looks more of a blue green to me.

am i crazy? are my eyes deceiving me? be the judge.

 

here it is next to the traditional blue one.

The lighting and background could be influencing the photo. Definitely more bluish than green, but less turquoise than expected...

I hope they'll keep producing the Safari in textured finishes and black garments!

 

I'll have to wait to see the 'Petrol' one in person... I thought I was going to fall in love with the purple one, but after having one in the hands it felt different than the charcoal one. Like if the plastic used was different.

 

But... Welcome back, Safari of old!

The 2017 Colors have just been leaked on Amazon.co.jp and fontoplumo. The Safari is a dark teal with black accents (name translates to petrol), and the Al-Star is a light blue named "Pacifica". (images below)

In the latter picture looks more turquoise but I guess looking at recent post not as nice sea bluish as hoped for.

I think they should make a limited edition ink to go with the Petrol or teal colored Safari. Maybe do 500 bottles. The aftermath would be interesting.

How about a link? I've been all over the USA Lamy site. Nothing about anything "petrol"'or "2017 colors" comes up. In fact, most of the site's main features return 404 errors.

I ride a recumbent, I play go, I use Macintosh so of course I use a fountain pen.

These folks hope to see the petrol soon:

The petrol looks like it matches the colors of the Edison Premiere Arctic Currents.

 

I like the Pacific color. I'm not sold on the Petrol. It has a greenish tint that I am not fond of, kinda like how I dislike Daimine Twilight (though I'm sure that'd appeal MORE to some, not less).

The Petrol looks like a teal version of the Umbra or Charcoal they have now.

 

I love the somewhat matte/gritty finish on my charcoal Lamy.

My new Pacifico arrived today. Nice color indeed.

It looks like the Petrol Safaris will be out fairly soon. I have noticed that pen retailers are putting out their listings for it and that typically happens within a month of release.
