  1. Hi! I have a Lamy Safari fountain pen with the Z28 converter for the ink. I used it for some time with a permanent ink DeAtramentis Document Ink (Black). After few weeks of not using it the ink seems to be partially dried. How can I clean it safely? I assume water won't do any good. Please, dear people, who love fountain pens for a long time, take into the consideration that I have never clean any fountain pen and I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the subject, so I would greatly appreciate a detailed explanation or perhaps a link to video if something like that exists.

  3. Pen Pit Stop : Lamy Dialog 3 PianoWhite Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way – no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let’s find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that arrives at the pit stop today is the Lamy Dialog 3. This pen wi

    Lamy cp1, a superb journal companion

    From the album: European pens

    This is one of my two favourite Lamy pen models (hint: the other one is not a Lamy 2000), and the one that made me a fan of the brand, even though I had a few Safari and Logo pens before this and wasn't impressed by them. My ‘super pencil’ that writes in fountain pen ink. It's one of only a few pens that I wouldn't think twice writing with the cap posted; the cap clicks onto the end finial securely, and fit flush so that there is no edge to rest or rub against the skin between thumb and index finger uncomfortably. The pen is also perfectly usable for me without posting the cap.

  8. I was on the hunt for a nice Pilot Vanishing Point but my local brick & mortar (Appelboom) doesn't carry Pilot. I mentioned this while picking up some ink for a colleague and was asked if I'd considered the Dialog 3. Well, no, I hadn't. It's considerably more expensive, it's massive, it lacks fancy colour schemes and most of all... it's a Lamy... Sure, I admire the ABC but otherwise no thanks, I'll pass. Lamy and I, we're just not meant to be. Or so I thought... because I fell like a brick for the design, the materials, the amazing engineering, the retractable nib mechanism and the EF nib.

    Lamy Peridote Ink

    Lamy joins a Gemstone Club with their new series of "originally" named inks. As much as I'm excited about new Lamy inks, I loathe their lack of creativity. Call it a pet peeve but when I see another line of inks inspired by gemstonjes, I clench my teeth. Anyway, the bottles and packaging look cool. Ink The ink is strongly saturated. It's intense, strong, and vivid. Also, it behaves well. I would say that if you look for well behaved and strong ink in a similar color, look no more. Drops of ink on kitchen towel Color ID

It flows well but shows a tendency to dry out in the pen. Apart from this, it behaves well. Probably not the best archival ink ever, but well worth a shot. Drops of ink on a kitchen towel Colo

    Damaged Lamy Nib

    I recently bought a Lamy 2000 in the mail from an official dealer. The pen came with a extra-fine nib, and I asked them to change it for a fine. The pen always wrote a little scratchy, but I read that that is typical of Lamy 2000s. The scratchiness got worse, however, and I sent it in for repairs. Bob Nurin, the official Lamy repairman, wrote me back that the nib had experienced trauma and that one of the tines was bent. I am super careful with my pens, and it certainly didn't happen with me. Could such a thing have happened when the nib was changed? A new gold nib costs $100, which is not a s

    Lamy 18 Special Vs. Lamy 27/32

    Hello everyone, Just wondered, looking at the LAMY 27/32 and the LAMY_18_special, what are the differences if you give these two only a short look. They look very similar. The design is similar, and I believe they were produced at the same time - the "special" model inspired by its bigger sibling. One is a piston filler, one takes cartridges. If you take them into your hands, LAMY_18_special is smaller and slimmer, but the shape is identical. For more pictures, please visit my FLICKR account. Kind regards, Jan My FLICKR account. Please see other Topics I've started: - LAMY_17_special

    Onoto K Series Pens

    I found here one review of an Onoto K series pen. It is excellent, worth reading as a companion because I do not plan to repeat most of that information. This is more of a comparison and notes on the pens. However, I will recap the series briefly. In 1955, just three years before they gave the pen game away entirely, Onoto released a series in a new style for them, being fairly plain plastics, piston fillers, mainly with hooded nibs, and barrels in the vogue cigar style. They proved to be good pens but, too little, too late as the British were wont to say. The pens were: K1 - Gold clutch cap

    Lamy Studio Jewel Removal

    I was wondering if anyone could post a detailed description or photo string to show how to remove the jewel from the lamy studio cap. My clip is loose and wiggles back and forth. I read somewhere else that this could potentially be fixed by taking the jewel off and adjusting the clip placement in the jewel. Unfortunately I can't get the jewel to move no matter what I do. I have removed the brass screw and rubber insert inside the cap but that's as far as I can get. I don't want to get to pushy with it for fear of damaging the jewel, so I haven't used any tools yet. Thanks.
  18. Hi, 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

    Is This Lamy Al-Star A Counterfeit?

    I bought a black Lamy Al-Star from amazon earlier this week. It was only $16, so I have been concerned that it might be fake. It looks good to me. What do others think? Thanks, Alister

    Loose Nib On My Safari

    Hi, In cleaning my (stock) nib, I tried to wipe it dry with a cloth and it popped right off. All I could find in a Google search are articles emphasizing the difficulty of removing the nib (!), and they all just say to slide the (new) nib on, making sure it's oriented properly. I can slide it on to the feed, but it doesn't seem to slide into the section and it's just loosely sitting on the feed. What am I doing wrong? Is it supposed to go into the section? If so, do I just have to push it really hard? Thanks a lot for your help.

    Lamy Squeeze Converter

    Does anyone know how I might get my hands on one of the old Lamy squeeze converters (pictured below)? Thanks to haywoody for alerting me to the existence of this converter, which is where I also got the image (https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/90367-lamy-safari/).

    Tight Fitting Nibs.

    Recently I've ordered some F & LH nibs from my country's official Lamy store to customize some of my Safaris and AL-Stars. While changing the nibs, I've noticed that they are too tight fitting. When I wanted to remove one from my AL-Star with tape, whole feed detached from the pen. Fortunately the feed and the pen are fine but, I'm surprised to tightness of the new Lamy nibs. Did anyone experienced the same phenomena? What if I want to return to old nibs of the pens some day? How can I remove these nibs? The nibs write very good BTW. They are wet, smooth and firm like all Lamy nibs.

    Safari Savannah Green Barrel Imprint

    This imprint is on a Savannah Green barrel. Was this an Export version?
  25. Credit where credit is due. I have had my Lamy Dialog 3 for several years. I like the pen, though its size means that I don't use it all that often. The last time I had used it was a couple of years ago, after which I cleaned it, let it dry and put it back into my pen-case. At that time it worked well and wrote beautifully. When I tried to ink it up a month or so ago, the mechanism wouldn't work at all - it had essentially frozen and I could't rotate the barrel to extend the nib. It was very strange. So I packed it up and sent it to Lamy (I presently live in Germany), asking them to have a
