Lamy Logo: Quick Look



The Lamy Logo is a pen that doesn't normally get a whole lot of attention, and that is surprising to me because it is fairly unique. It is straight all the way down, and kind of futuristic in its design. It’s pretty thin like the CP1, so those of you who are into thin pens will dig it. It also has a pretty flexible spring clip that’s inset into the cap a bit, I don’t know why I think that’s cool but I do. It has a snap cap, and pushes to post. 



Even though it’s made of metal, it’s aluminum so it’s still pretty light (18g), about the weight of a Lamy Safari. Its nibs are interchangeable with all of the stainless steel Lamy nibs. It only comes available from Lamy with fine or medium, but it’ll also fits the Lamy extra-fine, broad, 1.1, 1.5, and 1.9mm stubs. The matte stainless steel version starts around $35, and the brushed around $40. They’re cartridge converter pens that take Lamy proprietary cartridges or the black and silver Lamy Z26 converter which is NOT included with these pens, so you’ll need to pick one of those up separately.



The Safari and Al-Star get so much attention in the Lamy brand, but the Logo should definitely be on your radar if you’re shopping for a $40ish Lamy. For more details and up-to-date specs on the Logo be sure to check it out on GouletPens.com

  1. I like the design of this pen a lot. Looks rugged, good for EDC, book bags, pockets. Lamy nibs are great, I like the slim design. I too think the clip design is cool and the grooved grip should feel great in the hand. And, since it is a stainless metal color, you can use any color ink in it! What ink would be good in this for a Monday Matchup? Blue Ghost?

  2. Brian, I see the clip on the logo may be articulated (hinged). If so, is there a cap liner that seals the cap so the nib will not dry out? If you don't know, try blowing into the cap and see if air leaks out.

    As for a match up, how about Diamine Graphite.

    I must say the box is pretty awesome. I'm thinking of picking one up. The design is nice sleek and modern.

  4. Haha, yeah that's a good question! Part of the reason I like this pen is because it's really neutral, so for those of us compulsive about matching our ink to our pens, it's freeing :)

  5. It is! The only kind of annoying thing is that when you first get it there's a spare cartridge in the box (like with all Lamy pens), and because of the way this box opens the cartridge almost always falls out! It's not that big of a deal though.

  6. That is correct, it's hinged (the clip itself isn't bending to open up like that). There is actually a seal inside the cap! I didn't mention that, but as I've been using this pen for the past few weeks, it has stayed well-sealed and not dried out a bit. A huge plus for this pen. Diamine Graphite, that's a good matchup!

  7. Hey Brian,

    Great summary of this relatively inexpensive pen. "Industrial style" is what comes to mind when I look at this pen. Very nice.

    I was curious about the differences between the CP1 and the Logo. It seems they share a similar design language and are not priced in entirely different categories.

    I think a quick comparison would be a wonderful resource.

    Thank you and again, great work!

  8. These have been around for several years but are not as popular as the Safari family, for some reason. They look pretty cool, but I guess a lot of people have come to associate Lamy with the classic Safari shape, maybe that's why the Logos are not on the radar. Too bad they don't include the converter.
