Newest Acquisitions (Virtual "Show & Tell") ~ part 14

From the unusual to the familiar... Meet Stuart's new Lamy 'Safari Candy' in "Mango" !

From Lamy's official website: What brings as much joy as a bagful of colourful candies - and without the sugar hit? The new Special Edition LAMY safari candy. The fresh trio, composed of violet, aquamarine and mango, is reminiscent of pop art, fruit sorbet and sugar icing.

Wow. Does that sound yummy or what??

Stuart purchased this pen from the Vancouver Pen Shop (which has been open throughout this pandemic) a few weeks ago. He writes: "As you can see from the pics the colour rocks, and I found an ink to go with it very well!"

I asked Stuart about the finish and he wrote back: ""The finish is matte. It’s a great cheery colour. "

Aside from the nib and feed, the entire pen (down to the spacer ring) is the same colour; Lamy refers to this as a "tone-in-tone concept". A lot of thought went into the design of the Safari writing instruments, which have been in continuous production for 40 years. The Safari is well-made and reliable---a great pen to carry around (its ABS plastic material is very durable) and use in the classroom or office, so get yours today! Not a fountain pen fan? It's also available as a ballpoint or mechanical pencil :)

Stuart, thanks as always, for contributing to our pen club meetings' "show & tell", as well as this online version!
