2014 & 2016 Lamy Safari Se - Neon Coral; Dark Lilac

JF_LAMY Collection

Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I know, I know, we are already eagerly awaiting the 2017 special edition Safari to get to pen-shops, but I just had these two sitting on my desk, and wanted to share.






Have you noticed, that taking pictures of pens with matt finish is a bit easier than of those with shiny surface ... ? Or is it just me?


All 2014 pictures and 2016 pictures, if you are interested:




2014 LAMY Safari / Neon Coral


2016 LAMY Safari / Dark Lilac



Kind regards,

The glossy pens often look plain. It's harder to light up the scene. The matte structure ads more depth to the pictures and accentuates the shape of the pen.


I am not a skilled photographer but I noticed it too.

Both shiny and matte Lamy pens are durable.


Years ago, the CEO of Levenger, an office accessories and pen retailer, drove his car over a Safari, besides some scratches, the pen was intact.


So it takes a lot for something to happen to a Lamy.


Both Safari colors in the picture, are lovely.

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?

Not wild about the Coral, myself. But couldn't wait to get my hands on the Dark Lilac. :wub: I've got an F nib on mine, and it's a great writer and a gorgeous pen (it would not be nearly as attractive, IMO, if it had the chrome clip and standard steel nib). Last year at the Triangle Pen Show, the guy from Crazy Alan's told me he'd already sold 150 of the pens, and that he thought they might have been the fastest selling pens in history).

Thanks for posting the pix.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
