April 19, 2011 § Leave a comment
The eagerly awaited Special Edition coloured Lamy Safari is now available from stock at PenFountain.com.
The Lamy Safari fountain pen is the highly respected pen manufactured from ABS resin to a design by Lamy designer, Wolfgang Fabian. The front end grip and nib assembly is common to the Safari, the Joy and the Al-Star ranges and offers an ergonomic design for greater comfort and to assist young hands attain the correct writing grip. Much has been written about the Lamy nibs and their unique nib mounting system that allows easy nib interchange. However, it would be fair to say that not everyone gets on with the tri-lobal grip design, especially older writers who have less conventional gripping positions with their fountain pens!
Lamy have established quite a reputation for producing a Special Edition coloured Safari each year with the caveat that this for a limited time/production run. They are a little more reticent about revealing times or volumes presumably so that if the colour does well they can produce another batch – or am I just cynical? The Safari Special Edition for this year is a beautiful Aquamarine fountain pen with chrome trim.
2011 has had a wealth of surprises with the release of the Special Edition White version of their successful Joy calligraphy fountain pen. This may be seen as ideal for wedding invitations although a little late for the forthcoming Royal event!
Both pens come with the usual selection of nibs and don’t even attract a premium price! When ordering, don’t forget to include any cartridges and converters you may want.
