Quick and convenient: Ink cartridges
Anyone who writes a lot in everyday life will appreciate the advantages of the LAMY T10 large capacity ink cartridges: The exchange is quick and easy, the empty cartridges are recyclable in the plastic waste and the cartridges are available in seven classic colours.
Lots of room for creativity: Inkwell
Although refilling Lamy converters is also simple and quick, it requires minimally more time and attentiveness than changing a cartridge. On the other hand, writing with ink from the glass is particularly environmentally friendly and the more than 15 colours in the Lamy range leave nothing to be desired.
LAMY 2000: A PISTON FOUNTAIN PEN MAKES DESIGN HISTORY
In 1966, the LAMY 2000 hit the stationery shops - and still holds a unique cult status today. The plunger is filled with ink via a twist mechanism at the end of the body. The special feature: The twist mechanism is virtually invisible and is thus a masterpiece of engineering and a homage to the Bauhaus principle in one.
It is the little things that are remembered: A lovingly designed letter with calligraphed details, handwritten invitation cards with hand lettering elements or art journaling are something really special because they reflect the creativity of the creator and the individual relationship with the recipient.

To use your fountain pen with an inkwell, you can purchase a converter for all our models - you fill this with the ink and then insert it into your writing instrument. Of course, you can always reinsert an ink cartridge into the fountain pen after thoroughly cleaning the writing instrument if you no longer wish to use a converter.
*Note: The LAMY 2000 fountain pen is the only model that is not compatible with the LAMY T10 ink cartridges. It can only be used with ink from the ink glass.
