There was a matte white Safari with a black clip (and nib?) back in the '90s.

 

So not really a "new" idea.

 

yes .. that was grey i guess

No, its was white.

There was a grey version as well.

 

Yup. Sure enough.

 

I like the ones with the black clips though. I might have see about adding this one in.

That one does look pretty sharp (kinda reminds me of that Pelikan they called the Stormtrooper (I think it was an M200). But whether I try to score one or not is going to depend on a number of factors, such as price, what nib widths are available, and shipping costs from Japan.

If black nibs were offered in 1.1 italic, yes!

and the 1.5 too as both would be welcome additions.

Not at all.... but on the pictures it doesn't look matte. It looks more like a common Alpin from 1983...

It is even less "original", not having the older "white with a matte finish" but the newer "white with the gloss finish".

 

So a current "white with gloss finish" cap and barrel combined with a black clip and nib.

The "original" as you call it was produced in an unknown and very limited number for an asian client (got this information from customer service by Lamy). So I rather would call the glossy Alpin the "original" and to this, it seems very close. Would be interesting to see the clip plug.

All my original Safaris were given away over 20 years ago, so no photos of "clip plugs".

 

I don't care what you call what.

I was not talking about your pens. I meant that it would be interesting to see the plug of the new version to compare with the Alpin. From all the old versions I have my own examples.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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
