As life continues to swarm around me, I have found a new favourite fun pen, the Mango Safari Ballpoint. I love it. I have been clicking around like nobody’s business. I have never been one for theSafari ballpointin general, but in these new candy colours, the all mangoey mango was calling out to me. The fountain pen version needed a sidekick (an ego booster? a foil?).
For 2017, Lamy released a special edition Al-Star, the Pacific, with matching turquoise ink, and also a special edition Safari, the Petrol. The fountain pen is a dark teal colour, with a matte texture and matching black trim - and the ink is also a great match for the name and the pen.
It's about time I share a few long overdue photos of the new Lamy Pacific Blue Al-Star, this year's special edition. I've had it inked up with the Pacific Blue cartridges, and took a few extra photos when I was taking photos for my last "What's in my Pen Roll" post.
I have been looking forward to these Vac Minis for as long as I can remember. I get excited now and then for new pen arrivals, but I have to say this is the most exciting thing we've ever received from TWSBI.
We have a lot of wonderful customers who spend time chatting with us in the store, or send us emails sharing about their pens and requesting brands or models, and one of the pens we've heard the most about is the Lamy 2000.
