Description The Lamy Dialog CC fountain pen in All Black is based on the innovative capless Dialog 3 fountain pen. The Dialog CC is a newly conceptualized version which has a shortened upper section with a refined end plate and an anti-roll top instead of a clip. The compact format also houses a totally unique twist mechanism which extends and retracts the nib. The body is a matte dark black lacquer with black plated accents. The new gold nib is refined with black plating with gold accents giving the Lamy Dialog CC even more of an emotional allure. The packaging includes a proprietary Lamy ink cartridge, a Z27 ink converter to get you writing immediately, and a leather pen sleeve! One additional note - LAMY tests their pens as a final step in the manufacturing process, for added quality control. If you see any residual ink on your nib, this is normal, and does not indicate that the pen has been used.
