I was considering one of these pens, ended up going for the pilot VP, sold it and since I've tried a couple dialog 3s and I enjoyed them more than the VP in my hand. Great review
Thank you! The Dialog3 and the VP are both outstanding, high-quality pens. In the hand, they feel very different. The VP is a smaller, tapering pen whereas the Dialog is just a cylinder. And a heavy one at that. I'd expected the Dialog to be uncomfortable, but once I got used to it the pen just felt great. It's a really distinctive, unique writing instrument. I've never been able to bond with Lamy's classic models like the 2000, but the Dialog 3 ticks my boxes.
