Featuring 3 limited edition "Star Wars" fountain pens from Cross, on this day of May the 4th.
Lamy issued 3 special editions in the Safari series that are country-specific. The white barrel with red clip was issued in Japan (no surprise there, given that red and white are the colours in Japanese flag); The black barrel with yellow clip was also issued in Japan, but it was to commemorate 150th anniversary of establishment of Japan-German relationship (hence the colours of German flag); The red barrel with yellow clip was issued for the Chinese market.
All three pens are available for sale and in store.
Each year, Lamy releases a special edition for its Safari series of pens and pencils with different colours from its regular editions. As the production quantity is limited, they often became collector's items.
This Shopkeeper has collected quite a few of these over the years. And this Fountain Pen with orange body and chrome clip was the 2009 release.
