It's unfortunate that, like the other thread honoring the Parker 45, these are pens that aren't comfortable for me to write with, so I have simply kept one or two and not gone down the road of collecting them. Iconic pens that have been useful for millions of hands and that is all that counts.
    I have the same problem! They are such fun pens at a great price, but I can't hold them in a comfortable position. I have a teal one at least.

    So the day ought to look like:
    Pelikan m200 cafe creme for breakfast,
    Safari Strawberry and cream for tea in the afternoon. :-)
    To which I'll add my Bexley Corona 'Blueberry Cream' for dessert.

    I still like the Petrol. One of these days I might use the bottled ink, still using the petrol cartridges.

    January this year (2023), maybe February. I think they are still available. I will confirm.

    But the point here is that there are many local Safari editions--for just some shops in Tokyo, for Japan, or for the East Asia market.

    Here you can see a couple of examples:

    Lamy Vista Katakana, for the retailer Loft. 2020:
    IMG_9828-blog2-WM.jpg
    IMG_9831-blog-WM.jpg

    Lamy Safari to commemorate the 150th anniversary of German-Japanese friendship. Sure you can read the inscription! 2011:
    IMG_1665-blog-WM.jpg

    There are more examples.

    Thank you iosepus!

    In this thread I am trying to cover all the different colors. It is beyond my capabilities to also note all the special editions. Nevertheless, it's interesting to collect informations anyway. So, thank you again.

    C.

    PS: are you collecting Safaris too?

    Good luck with your compilation. I will try to add some examples. However, the trend of mixing and matching different colored parts makes it an endless task.

    Case in point:

    IMG_5894-blog-4-3-800-WM.jpg

    I do not collect Safari--i just accumulate some that I find interesting, particularly if limited to some specific market.
