Lamy special edition petrol colour

Thursday, 20 April 2017  |  Admin

Lamy's special edition safari colour for summer 2017 is petrol, a dark blue-green teal colour. Petrol is available as safari fountain pens, rollerballs and ballpoints. Like last year's fantastically popular dark lilac, Lamy have given these pens a matt finish that is comfortably non-slip in the hand. All in all, it's a sophisticated choice of colour, well suited to adults and students who are looking for something less obvious than safari's core range of primary yellow, red, blue and green.

Lamy safari fountain pen in petrolWe expect the fountain pen, with its black nib and flexible clip, to be a firm favourite with our customers, as the dark lilac was last year. Again, following the success of last year's matching ink cartridges, Lamy have brought out petrol coloured ink cartridges to match the fountain pen. This is a dark blue-green ink that shows up well when you write with it, quite unlike any other colour we have in stock. Lamy petrol ink cartridges

Last year we pestered Lamy to produce bottles of ink in their special edition colour to no avail. This year we're thrilled that they have also produced bottles of ink in this unusual but useful addition to their range of inks.

Lamy petrol bottled inkLamy produce a limited number of their special edition pens, cartridges and inks. We'll keep them in stock for as long as possible but when they're gone, they're gone.
