Nature inspired LAMY dialog urushi leaves edition. Limited to just 20 pieces this special edition captures the beauty of the urishi art together with the contemporary materials and design of the dialog. Each pen is made to order, the lead time is estimated to be between 2-3 months of order confirmation
Urushi has been used traditionally in Japanese arts and crafts for thousands of years. The quality of this material is still unrivalled today due to its resistance and the intensity it brings to any object. Years of practice, patience and discipline are required to become an urushi master. Working on and finishing each fountain pen requires months of application, grinding and polishing of up to 12 coats of lacquer.
Black urushi lacquer creates the deepest black found anywhere in the world and is created by adding iron dust which causes the lacquer to oxidise and is then filtered out. When the black lacquer is applied in fine coats it appears almost translucent and the building of layers creates amazing depth. The bright leaves model has gold plated elements including the ball value and clip.
The Dialog 3's 14k gold nib can be fully retracted via a twist-action. Palladium plated finish body with subtle engraved Lamy logo.
When the pen is opened, a unique mechanism retracts the pocket clip to "smooth" the body where you hold the pen. Closing the pen actuates a type of trap door to cover and protect the nib and prevent drying. Some nib options subject to one week lead time so please check before ordering if you are in a hurry.
