NEW 2021: LAMY Dialog Urushi Leaves
Brilliant lacquer art meets technical masterpiece: Urushi master Manfred Schmid spends several months working and refining a single fountain pen, because several days of drying often pass between the steps of applying, sanding and polishing the up to twelve layers of lacquer. The exact duration of this process can never be predicted – the material dictates the time. But as you can probably guess from the pictures: it's worth it!
The Special Edition LAMY dialog urushi leaves is limited to 20 unique pieces and only available on request.

Urushi has been used in traditional Japanese arts and crafts for thousands of years. The quality of this natural material is unrivalled even today – thanks to its resistance, its intensity and its auratic beauty which instantly casts a spell over onlookers.
An extraordinary symbiosis. Tradition and modernity. Asia and Europe.
Its combination with contemporary materials and processes puts urushi into a whole new light. Virtuoso painting is used on a fountain pen whose form and function also feature masterful craftsmanship and technical excellence: LAMY dialog.
