FUNCTIONAL INSIDE, STYLISH OUTSIDE

When we pick up a pen, we want what we put on paper to look good. To ensure that you receive a writing instrument that will accompany you for a long time, we at Lamy rely on the best quality when it comes to the inner workings of our ballpoint pens. Before the product goes on sale, we test the first meters of writing in our LAMY manufactory. In this way, we guarantee reliable writing behavior from the first to the last line.

The refill

Quality "Made in Germany": The refills used in our ballpoint pens are manufactured at the Lamy site in Heidelberg. The refill itself is made of metal, while the ball of the pen is made of tungsten carbide.

Not sure which refill you need? To find out, simply unscrew your ballpoint pen and note the model number (e.g. LAMY M16), which is recognizable on the refill. Our tip: Also check if your Lamy ballpoint pen is compatible with one of our large capacity refills - these contain even more lead paste for extra long writing pleasure.

The ballpoint pen refill paste

Nothing works without it: The refill paste. Unlike the ink in the fountain pen, this is more viscous. No matter whether signatures or certificates of achievement. The refill paste is document-proof and accompanies you for all the important signatures in life. They are also free of toxins.

Frequently asked questions

Who invented the ballpoint pen?

Galileo Galilei is said to have made a sketch showing a kind of ballpoint pen. The first ballpoint pen as we know it then made its appearance in 1938: The Hungarian inventor László József Bíró observed children at play whose marbles rolled through a puddle and left a wet trail on the ground. This is how he was inspired to create the first ballpoint pen.
There are now countless designs and types of ballpoint pens on the market - including our legendary Lamy models: The LAMY 2000 with its unmistakable cigar shape, the minimalist LAMY noto, the refined LAMY xevo or the ingenious LAMY pico.

What are the types of Lamy pens?

Choose from a variety of different models: Depending on your needs and requirements, the individual ballpoint pens differ in shape, size and colour to suit your individual ideas. There is a wide selection of design classics, frequent-writer pens and colourful, modern models. And the range of refills leaves nothing to be desired: Choose from the line widths F (fine), M (medium) or B (wide) and from four different colours (blue, black, green, red).

Which Lamy ballpoint pen is best for me?

It all depends on what you want to use the pen for. Do you write a lot and need a faithful companion for training or everyday work? Then the LAMY xevo, LAMY logo, LAMY Lx for example, will suit you perfectly. You can find more information about the models here. If you need the ballpoint pen for sketching or drawing, stick to the LAMY safari. For those who value design and aesthetics, the LAMY studio or the LAMY imporium are the right model.

Which Lamy ballpoint pen is suitable for drawing?

The LAMY safari is a real specialist when it comes to creative writing and sketching. Its ergonomic shape is a particular advantage. The ballpoint pen is available in many modern colours and impresses not only with its appearance but also with its exceptional robustness, so that it is a reliable companion for sketches on the go. And did you know that other products from the LAMY safari family are also popular for drawing? Our LAMY safari fountain pen is extremely popular among architects from all over the world.

Where can I have ballpoint pens engraved?

When you buy a ballpoint pen from Lamy, you have the option of having an engraving applied. You can choose between different fonts and positions, for example on the case or on the clip.

Which Lamy ballpoint pens write softly?

How smoothly a ballpoint pen glides across the paper does not depend on the writing instrument itself, but on the refill.
All ballpoint pen refills from Lamy promote a soft and fluid writing pattern and thus offer you unmistakable writing comfort. The tungsten carbide ball used in the refill is almost as hard as diamond - so it's virtually indestructible and won't get dents or scratches, which makes for a consistently good writing experience. Our LAMY M16 ballpoint pen refill in stroke width B glides particularly smoothly over the paper: The ball in the writing tip has a larger diameter than other line widths and thus writes heavenly soft.
