Lamy Dialog 3


after waiting for several months... it arrives.

it has a wooden case as the previous Dialog series. the stainless steel pen is palladium finished with the normal 14k nib as the high end Studio and Accent.

the retracting mechanism is solid, precise and smooth. the section is thick (13.5mm), as compared to other Lamy pens. the nib extends completely with about half turn of the barrel, and the clip would retract.

as it does not have ink window, it's quite difficult to check the remaining ink volume or when filling with the Z26 converter.

Weight: 46.33g
