The LAMY dialog 3 is a revolutionary fountain without a cap. Thanks to a fascinating twist mechanism the nib slides elegantly out of the interior of the barrel, while the clip retracts onto the shell. The twist-action fountain pen is then ready to write. When the fountain pen is twisted closed a ball valve automatically moves in front of the opening and protects the retracted nib from drying out and getting dirty. The clip lifts up and the fountain pen can be clipped into a pocket or bag. Twist-action fountain pen in matt black lacquer finish with pen case made of beech.
Free fountain pen converter is included.

Central circumference: 4.4cm

Although it is definitely a design marvel for a fountain pen (something pleasant in the conventional line of fountain pens), but it is not which can be classified as flawless. the only flaw which I have experienced is the grip while writing. the grip and the wieght are a problem. So considering the price, it is not perfect.

Looks great but pen needs a lot of TLC. Ink easily dries and session under cold water tap are necessary. Pen stopped completely some time ago and had to be sent back to Lamy.
Now marginally better.
