The Lamy 2015 Special Edition Neon Lime Safari is in!
In addition to writing with this pen, I plan on using it to direct airplane traffic at Pearson in my free time.
This pen got overshadowed a bit by the excitement of the Copper Orange, but I’m a big fan of neon, so I’m pretty sure I’m keeping one of these. (Jon and I have an ongoing agreement about how many pens I’m allowed to keep a year, but it’s “flexible.”)
This pen is bright, that’s for sure. I had a hard time with my light settings, and in this picture, it actually looks like it’s literally glowing. It’s like my kryptonite, both because it’s radioactive, and because…it’s a fountain pen.
I once sold a customer a Neon Yellow Safari (2013 Special Edition) because I said as a safety feature, he could wear it in his pocket while bicycling and it would reflect light from cars. This Neon Lime Green is yet another light reflector pen.
Note: I was kidding, and he has actual reflectors on his bicycle. And he wears a helmet. Safety first!
As always, Lamy produces one Safari (this year’s Neon Lime Green) and one Al-Star (this year’s Copper Orange) special edition colour each year, and once we sell out of this pen, that’s it. We’ve got some good stock, so you can take a bit to think about it, but don’t wait too long!
