The Lamy Dialog 3 is Lamy's first capless fountain pen.
The Dialog 3 uses a twist mechanism to slide the nib from the barrel, as the pen is twisted to retract or eject the nib an internal cap slides back or forth and seals the retracted nib safe from harm and dirt.
The Dialog 3 was designed by Franco Clivio in keeping with his philosophy to strip away any superfluous features and derive quality from what is technically necessary, giving the Dialog 3 a striking minimalist appearance.
The Dialog 3 originally launched with a palladium finish and a 14-carat gold nib with platinum plating, later the (matt) black and then the glossy Piano Black and Piano White finishes were introduced. The Dialog 3 accepts Lamy T10 ink cartridges or may be filled from an inkwell with the converter supplied.
Nib grades available: EF, F, M, B, OM, OB
