Lamy Safari Petrol - 2017 Special Edition

Hi folks,



Lamy Safari Petrol is here!



Fountain pens come with black Fine or Medium nib (feel free to add any Z50/Z52 nibs of course).


They have matt finish, just like Dark Lilac pens.



There are Roller-balls and Ball-point pens too. Ink comes in T10 cartridges and T52 bottles.


Petrol colour is dark teal-green B) similar to Sailor Miruai. It shows a slight sheen on Tomoe River paper.



BTW if you wonder about shipping cost - we use Royal Mail Airmail service for orders outside UK and you can check the cost in the shopping basket before you place the order.



Enjoy!



Mishka

Cool phots (especially second one). I'm not sure about the colors but I'll try them, both ink and pen.

Thank you - credit to Faisal, he takes great photos :) I wasn't sure if this will be your colour or not :))))

Blimey, you have to move fast... I will order pen and cartridges then. Are you definitely getting more of the ink in for May? Any chance of reserving a bottle?

Thanks Mishka, it's really good that you guys communicate with your customers as you do, head and shoulders above the many faceless generic online retailers.

Mine arrived today. The color is different from most of the photos that I've seen. I bought a bottle of iroshizuku tsuki-yo to use in it. It's perfect!

 

The pen wrote well as soon as I inked it up. I do like it.

I have been writing with mine all week, on the crappy paper we use for documents at work it appears almost black, my rhodia shows up the greenish tint.

Its no Dark Lilac or Copper Orange but is way better than the Charged green or Neon lime disasters.

Bit of sad news...but it was expected...

 

First wave of production is gone! No more bottled ink till May :closedeyes:

 

I have no idea whether this means my order is now unfulfilled. If I am now in some sort of queue how do I cancel the order?

Thank you! I've just ordered mine. :)

So space and time are linked together. As we are looking across space, we are looking back in time. The further and further away those stars are the further back in time you are looking. Now you are seeing a star that is say six thousand years ago. Imagine somebody at that star looking at us They would be seeing us as we were six thousand years ago. Which of those two is now? - Alan Parsons Project The Time Machine - Temporalia (Paraphrased)

That Petrol ink color looks very interesting. Definitely will order a bottle to go with the Petrol Lamy I just received.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
