A New Special Edition Lamy Safari: LAMY BROWN The Black Edition 4


Lamy Line Friends 2018

Lamy’s store in K11 (on HuaiHai Road)

Like last year I found new special editions from Lamy in Shanghai, not available in the West.. This time it’s another Line Friends edition: LAMY BROWN The Black Edition.

The amazing aluminium container

The one comes in an amazing packaging: a thick-walled aluminium tube (with screw lid). I haven’t seen any packaging like this for a Pen before.

The Lamy Safari itself is the Matte type with the Line character’s name BROWN embossed in the cap.

It also comes with a leather strap and metal buttons with browns face. The leather strap can be used to attach it to your belt, etc. The Lamy employee wore it around his neck.

Here’s a link to the official web page for this pen.

In previous year’s people contacted me to ask whether I can get them the special edition, but I already left Shanghai at that time. To avoid this happening again I bought two of these special edition pens for interested readers. I hope I won’t regret this decision. If you are interested let me know as soon as possible by leaving a comment here or by emailing me (if you know my email address).

The price is £65 plus postage. The item is in the UK.

Here’s a video showing the aluminium tube.

Watch the aluminium tube on YouTube for HD video.

I will add this Special Edition to the list of Lamy Special Editions on stationery.wiki in a few days (if no one else has done it by then). That list contains (so far) 26 Special Editions of the Lamy Safari.

    Interesting that the container doesn’t seem to match the pen as well as some of the other metal tubes do. I’m interested in trying it out. My only brown pen currently is a tortoiseshell Pelikan.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Philip, hehe, in this case very true.

    Kelly, I sent you an email. The container doesn’t match the pen, but it matches the clip click-ons. The name is a bit misleading. Brown is the name of the Line Friends character. The pen itself is black. You can see it more clearly on the official web page I linked to

    Adrian, I sent you an email.
