LAMY dialog 3 / Twist fountain pen

LAMY dialog 3

Discipline: Product

The LAMY dialog 3 is a capless fountain pen featuring a twist action to retract the nib. Its discreetly elegant body conceals a range of complex functions, such as the opening protected by a ball valve and a distinctive clip that guides the writer when using the pen. By twisting the lower barrel to the right, the ball valve opens and the nib slides out, while the clip retracts into the pen body. Twist in the opposite direction and the process is reversed. The fountain pen can now be slipped into the pocket.
