Pen comes inside a wooden case with magnetic closure, housed in a cardboard gift box. Includes one blue ink cartridge.

The Lamy Dialog 3 fountain pen has a revolutionary capless design with a retractable nib and clip. Thanks to a fascinating internal twist mechanism, the nib slides elegantly out of the barrel while the clip simultaneously lowers to be flush to the pen body. Twist again and the nib retracts back inside the barrel as a precise ball valve automatically closes to protect the nib from dirt and dryness. The clip also rises up from the pen body for use.

The matte black finished body contains a two-tone 14 carat gold nib. This sleek, unadorned design was created by famed Swiss designer, Franco Clivio. Will accept Lamy ink cartridges, and Lamy Z 26 converter.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 5.5 inches (14 cm) long, and 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter.

  The retraction mechanism..., May 31, 2013

The retraction mechanism is fantastic, but the nib does dry out too quickly. The Pilot Vanishing Point pens maintain wet nibs much longer.

The best ink I've found for keeping the nib wet is Waterman Florida Blue, now called Serenity Blue. I haven't tried the other Waterman colors, but they may work as well.

  Great pen, very well..., August 24, 2012
By jds... - See all my reviews
Great pen, very well made and substantial. Although somewhat heavy, the weight is distributed towards the nib. The nib is extremely smooth with good flow--definitely broader than most fine nibs, but not unmanageable. My only complaint is that although the end of the mechanism seems to be air-tight, the clip-retraction feature allows air into the body of the pen, drying out the nib. Left for a day or two unused, and the nib will be dry and takes a second to start writing. WARNING: This is no big deal for most inks, but I would never use this pen with Sailor or Platinum pigment-based inks. Because air can get into the body of the pen, the pigment ink will clog the nib.
