An icon of the writing world, the Lamy Safari continues its status as a beloved pen since its introduction in the 1980s. Although it’s considered a “beginner-friendly” pen, it enjoys a cult-like status from long-time pen enthusiasts worldwide. One of the reasons why the Safari continues to capture the attention of writers and thinkers is their yearly release of special edition colors. Lamy pens are among the first that I ever collected, and always hold a special place in my heart. This new Lamy Safari Special Edition 2024 is unique. It’s one of the few Safaris that have two contrasting colors in the same pen.
First of all, the Lamy Safari Special Edition 2024 Kewi is a special edition fountain pen that was just released in February 2024. It has a two-toned design and is available in two versions: a Violet Blackberry and Pink Cliff color. Notably, the darker (more prominent tones) are contrasted with a brighter color for a stylish, modern twist.
Similarly, the Pink Cliff has a stony gray body – a matte-finished, grey-blue barrel and cap accented with black trim. A bold, pink grip section and top disc add a fun unpredictability to this otherwise conservative pen design.
Therefore, the Violet Blackberry has a dark, sleek barrel and cap accented with black trims. A violet matte-finished grip section and matches the color on top of the cap finial.
The pen is made with sturdy ABS plastic and has a spring-loaded clip. The fountain pen has a black steel nib that glides on the page. Choose from: extra fine, fine, medium as standard options. Call or email to find out about special order nib options.
Notably, this collection is also available in matching rollerball and ballpoint options. The rollerball has the same friction fit cap as the fountain pen. Refill it easily with the Lamy M63 rollerball refill. The ballpoint has a smooth click-action retraction mechanism. Refill it easily with the Lamy M16 ballpoint refill.
Lamy builds the Safari from impact-resistant plastic, making the pen a robust companion that’s up to the task. The ergonomically shaped grip guides young writers and is generally comfortable to hold. A distinctive, u-shaped wire clip keeps your writing instrument securely fastened to pockets, pen loops, and notebook covers.
Finally, these inks are gorgeous. I’d even say they’re easily the “stars of the show”. Whether you order the T10 cartridges or the T52 bottled ink, you can’t go wrong. As usual with Lamy bottled ink, you get tremendous value with the included blotter paper. In addition, the bottle tapers down to a point so that you can reach every last drop of ink.
