Collecting Writing instruments can be a decent hobby except for one thing: some of them are awfully expensive. Thus, I prefer to collect mid-low line-up of popular brands. German-owned company Lamy is one of my favorite brand, but I have feeling love and hate to their products. I like them because of their simplicity and practicality; on the other hand, their annual special edition makes me agonize. Both ABS plastic-based series (Safari) and aluminum-based series (ALstar) launch their special edition every spring, and they are basically the same pens with the different colors. So, my concern is as follow: are these SEs really necessary for me?
I am not a prophet, but I can predict the future line-up of Lamy’s special edition.
2050 SE - Eclipse
2051 SE - Camellia Pink
2052 SE - African Violet
2053 SE - Linen
2054 SE - Dark Salmon
2055 SE - Princess Ivory
This repetition might be continued until there in no color left in the world.
