    Default LAMY's Safari - all colors

    LAMY Safari Ė all Colors in chronological order

    On German penexchange.de and French stylo-plume.org I started years ago a thread to collect all colors of LAMYís Safari and to arrange them chronologically. Together with my Friend Chris Wallace from GB, we filled all the informations in a table and shared this on FPN. Now, since I decided to focus on other forums than FPN, I wanted to make these informations available on FPGeeks.

    A fantastic resource post, thank you. I need to get my Safariís out. I have a couple of Japan only varieties in white with red clip. Out of interest is the database limited to colours? For example, I know that there is a Safari with the Ampelman symbol on it.

    Done.


    and since I was able to complete my collection lately, I made another overview of all the existing colors, as a reference and just for fun:

Iconic pens that have been useful for millions of hands and that is all that counts.

    Very nice pens Christof! Would you mind explaining the characteristics that identify the 2002 Vista. I have a far from complete yet voluminous collection of Safaris and donít have a Vista model yet.

    You're right of course.

    Thank you for your reply. Apologies for the further query but are there any other distinguishing features that mark this pen as a 2002 pen, like the dot or cross on other yearly editions? I am assuming that I couldnít just buy a Vista tomorrow and call the collection complete as the pen would not manufactured in the correct year, or have I mis-understood?
