I just got my Dialog 3 today. I put in the enclosed blue Lamy cartridge and gave it a try. It's a little larger
than a Pilot VP, but is not awkward. Mine had a fine point--its the same 14K point on some of the Studio ftn pens.
It is a wet writer and the "fine" point writes like a medium. I haven't had time to delve into the finer points of its construction--I wonder how one can wash out old ink or clean it out if changing colors? Does the point assembly come out ala Pilot VP? So far-so good; I like it quite a bit!

Yes, when you unscrew the top half of the body off, you can unscrew and pull the converter out or grab the knurled metal part and unscrew that off. That contains the nib, feed & extension, simular to the VP, only this is threaded.

Nice little review, thanks. The photos are more realistic, of course, than the promos and give a better sense of what the pen is actually like in comparison to other pens.

Appreciate your post.

Review missed a fairly important parameter...the weight.

I picked one up at the last show and it's a substantial 45˝ grams. I don't mind big and heavy pens but that might be over the top for some.
I always get a kick out of these "no affiliation" notations when it's blatantly obvious the poster has absolutely nothing to do with the brand, company, etc. beyond being a customer. It must be a feel-good/feel-important thing. So I'll note up front that nothing I write here on this forum is influenced by any financial-gain motivation.

The size on these is great!!! It's similar to a Pelikan 800, just some more heft, and of course retractable! :) I like that the nib on the Dialog 3 is bigger than the VP nib. Makes for a nicer writing experience in my opinion. These are also really hard to get because of the low quantities that are trickling in from Germany, so the rare factor thus far is keeping these mysterious. This pen is more than worth the 80+ dollars you will pay for it over the VP. VP's are great and really convenient, but this is a totally different pen.
