Lamy issued a matching ink to its bright 2014 special edition Safari. I could not find it anywhere locally but the internet is your friend. Of course I had to put the ink into the matching pen :-) It’s a fun combination although I’ve got to admit, this is one very weird color. Not red, not orange, not pink but kind of a mixture of everything. It’s a very light color which makes for some nice shading. With the A nib that’s installed in the Safari it actually feels a bit dry whereas with the standard Pelikan royal blue the pen always felt like a very wet writer.
I’ll keep this combo for a bit longer I think and be it only to annoy my colleagues with all this eye-watering brightness :-D
