LAMY dialog 3 Twist Fountain Pen

Manufacturer

Design

The dialog 3 is a capless fountain pen featuring the conceptual functionality of a twist mechanism. Its discreetly elegant body conceals a range of complex internal functions. Characteristic for the pen is its ink opening, which is protected by a ball valve, and the distinctive clip that guides the writer while writing. By twisting the lower barrel to the right, the ball valve opens and the nib slides out into writing position, while the clip simultaneously retracts to the pen body. A twist in the opposite direction reverses this process. The fountain pen may now be slipped into a pocket.
