Sneak Peek: Lamy Safari NeonLime – 2015 Special Edition

This year’s 2015 special edition Lamy Safari has been announced, and it is…..

NeonLime!

With this bright green pen, Lamy continues the neon streak from the last few years (Neon Coral in 2014, Neon Yellow in 2013). While we haven’t seen this pen in person yet, we’re told that it’s in between the Neon Yellow color from 2013 and the Apple Green color from 2012. From the few pictures we’ve seen online, it looks pretty bright!

Lamy will also be releasing a special edition NeonLime bottled fountain pen ink and set of ink cartridges to match the pen.

We’re expecting the NeonLime fountain pen, rollerball pen, bottled ink, and ink cartridges to arrive within the next two weeks.

What do you think of this year’s color? Will it make it into your collection?

Personally, I’m still rooting for a purple Safari. Maybe 2016? Here’s hoping. 🙂

    So why haven’t they released a purple safari yet? Neon colors for three years seems like overkill…

    Personally I think they should do a red wine color, or why not brown?

    YES PURPLE!!! PLEASEEEEE. However, purple is my second favorite color to this kind of green, so it’s definitely on it’s way to my collection, with the Neon Yellow and the Apple Green.

    • we’ll root for purple next year I guess 😉

    I think red wine and brown would look LOVELY in al-stars. Mmmm, chocolatey al-stars.

  • I’m sure I’ll add this one to my collection – but it is a bit disappointing to see another green. At least the Al-Star is very different this year from other years!

    • yeah, the Al-Star definitely beats out the Safari this year imho

  • Scott Rogers

    I’m liking the neon green. Just wish it came with a black nib!

    • That’d be cool. But then they’d match the clip as well, how’d that look? Black nib and clip?

      • Scott Rogers

        I have black nibs on my neon yellow and coral Safaris, and I don’t mind the mismatch with the silver clip. That said, I do wish the clips on the neon Safaris were black. It would make the neon color pop even more.

      I bought black nibs from Goulet pens to use on my Safari and Al Star. I like them, and they gave me more flexibility in nib size as well by getting sizes not on the pen originally.

  • I excite!

    I don’t have any of the green’s or the neon yellow so I’ll be definitely getting this and the ink (I still need to get the CopperOrange ink).

    My favorite color is Purple, period. Black a close second but I need a Purple Safari, please, now, thank you, and maybe with the same texture as the Charcoal Safari…yessss!

    • Hmmm…a purple with the charcoal texture, that would be interesting!

    I like anything shaded lime green, but am not one of those that collects Safaris. One charcoal one in my collection is enough. UNLESS they come out with a purple. I would buy another one in that color. 🙂

  • oooo, wine! That'd be cool. They are doing a brown, though it's exclusive to Korea. It's a collaborative with Line: http://neighbourlist.com/2015/03/line-friends-and-lamy-present-limited-edition-brown-safari-rollerball-and-fountain-pen/

  • the purple Al-Star is kind of wine-y: http://www.gouletpens.com/lmy-l29/p/LMY-L29

    • I own the Al-Star and I think it's more fuchsia wine than purple. My first good pen was a lamy, and they need a purple. Or a bright turquoise, I could go for that.

  • Still hoping for a purple one too!

      Let’s hope for next year!! 🙂

    true!! I have that one. I was thinking in between the ruby red they had and this one 🙂

    Lamy is trying hard to get me to buy two pens I don’t need this year. I love the looks of the orange Al Star and this green. I don’t know if I’ll be able to resist the temptation for the whole year…

    • Madigan

      Haha! I’m facing the same struggle. That orange one is so great!

  • Brian Starkey

    I’d like to see them go back to the black clips on most of their pens like they had 10 or 12 years ago. My original red Safari is still kicking. That being said, a midnight blue would rock as well.

    • Madigan

      I had to google that one… what a beauty! The black clip looks fantastic with the red. 🙂

    Hello,
    I have written to Lamy in germany to tell them that I was disappointed by their new color, that they don’t read fountain pens forums… and so I won’t buy this new color. They answered me that the last 2014 edition was a success and so the new one will be too!

  • Kenneth

    The Neon Lime pen is nice, the ink is just horrible to write with.
    I am pondering getting a 1.9mm stubb just get some use out of it. But the nib is more expensive than the ink so I will probably just end up packing it away and hopefully find it again in 10 years time when it has become collectible.

  • david wright

    I just saw the pen, and got it, today. I love fountain pens, & have a convincing collection of the Lamy Safari in all 3 of its italic nibs – 1.1, 1.5, and 1.9 mm widths.The pen is a wonderful color – around dusk, (now) it almost seems to fluoresce. In bright sunlight it’s like one of those reflective safety jackets. You probably couldn’t lose it at midnight! Great fun. The ink is also great fun – rather like the yellow/neon green highlighter ink. It’s a lot of fun to play with, but unfortunately it dries like faint highlighter ink – difficult to read. Now if it were the same color but luminouos … there’d be an ink! But you can always get a converter and load whtever color you like. I’m wondering how to use the ink as a decorative highlight for caligraphy. It won’t really do to convey a mesage – but would catch the eye as something interesting and unusual. Wild applause (as usual) for Lamy. Now if they’d do a rainbow-marble pen with a single many-colored ink, that’d be awesome.

  • Would like to see a wine red on this one for sure

  • The lamy fountain pen is absolutely fantastic! It’s so eye-catching and what a conversation starter. Amazing value too.
