stylophilly posted a topic in LamyHi, everyone. I was just transferring my Lamy Dialog 3 Piano White from one storage case to another, and I noticed that the pen has got these stains running up and down the length of the body. These stains are a bit of a surprise to me since I've pretty much babied this thing and have used it sparingly. At this point, I'm thinking that the staining is something that happened while the pen was in storage in one of three Franklin-Christoph pen cases that I have and use. Attached are two photos that show the staining. I tried to rub this off with some distilled water and a microfiber cloth with
Lamy have different 14K gold nibs 2000 series nibs Z 55 --> dialog 3, studio, cp1 and others Z 56 --> imporium palladium finish and rose gold Z 57 --> imporium black and black/gold finish I'm planning to upgrade the nib of my Lamy Logo with a gold springy Lamy nib (I want a springer nib without expend much money buying another pen, I like my Logo), but what are the differences between Z 55, Z 56 and Z 57?

Attached are these images: 1. Pen #1 and its nib slightly misaligned with the cap's clip. 2. Pen #2 with the nib from pen #1: the nib is totally out of alignment. 3. A picture of two crimp marks on the nib's barrel, and my proposed explanation of how Lamy (fails to) align each nib uniquely with its cap. As I write in the third i
I am on the verge of buying a Dialog 3 (it seems like thick sections and heavier pens are most comfortable for me) but have a few questions before I jump the gun. First of I want to know how the pen feels to grip (not sure how to word this) I have never had a pen that is basically a tube end to end so I'm not sure how it would feel (I know the best way to know if it would be comfortable would be going and trying it out in a store but I dont have the opportunity to) . I normally have the tripod grip with most of the weight on my middle finger, so I dont think holding the pen itself would woul
