|Lamy Apple Green Safari|
For reasons beyond my ability to explain, we haven't been able to officially talk about the Apple Green Lamy Safari until today. Word leaked out about this pen with pictures floating all around the internet for the last several months, but in the US we weren't allowed to show any pictures or post anything official about the pen's existence or arrival until now. We want to remain in good graces with Lamy, so we played by the rules. My apologies to all of you who were trying to figure out what's been going on with this pen but been confused with all the hush-hushery going on.
Anyway, we did have a chance to see one of these pens for ourselves, and though we don't have any in stock, I was able to snap a few pictures of it. It's a real nice looking green, very vibrant but not ridiculous. I know a lot of you are looking forward to this color, and I don't think it will disappoint. Like all the other Safari pens, this one accepts proprietary Lamy cartridge, a Z24 (or Z26) converter (not included with the pen), and has an interchangeable steel nib.
Officially, retailers aren't supposed to advertise the pen at below list price, $35. I'm sure once the hype dies down, the pens will be able to sell closer to their Safari brethren at a fair market price. We don't have an official eta for these pens, but we're told "mid-May" is the arrival date, and I'll update on Ink Nouveau and GouletPens.com just as soon as we know more. If you'd like to be put on the GPC email notification list for the arrival of the pens, just go here and sign yourself up on the email notification list.
