Lamy safari Cap Finials
Since the re-release of the limited edition pink LAMY safari, I've been getting asked a lot about what the finial looks like on the cap. And for good reason, it's actually different than it was when the pen was previously available in 2010/2011!
Back then, the finial was pink and round with a hole in the middle, much like other Safaris had been previously.

However, the safaris coming out now are different, with a black "X" finial. The only one that doesn't have a black X is the white safari, for whatever reason it has a gray finial.
LAMY safari White, the only current one with a non-black finial
The re-issued pink safari now has the black X finial that all the other (non-white) safaris have. Everything else on the pen is exactly the same as it was in the previous release. I'm guessing that this is kind of a global change that they've made in recent years, to standardize the finial and further the economy of scale that comes from repeatability and sharing parts across colors/models.
Comparison of the new and old pink LAMY safari, everything else on the pen is the same.
I hope this helps answer any questions about the pink Safari! You can check out the Pink LAMY safari here!
