Lamy Xevo Ballpoint Pen

The Lamy Xevo is a stylish ballpoint pen that was announced by the company in June 2020.

Initially there was some confusion about the name of this pen. On its website Lamy called the pen the “Lamy Xevo” but in all other mentions (such a pre-launch materials) the pen was called the “Xeno.” The Lamy 2019 catalog image called the pen the “Xeno” as well. Now that the pen is live, we know the name is the “Xevo” and the confusion is behind us.

The Xeno was design for Lamy by Eric Degenhardt with the goal of being minimalist and a reduced down as possible. This is a typical theme in Lamy’s design but hasn’t been something the company has been as strict about in the last decade (or so).

The pen will be sold in black and white colorways and will be presented in Lamy and stationery stores in an open case with 60 pens out, which means the price will not be that high. We’d expect to see an MSRP of 14.90 euros, just like the Lamy Econ.

The pen is expected to use the Lamy M16 ballpoint pen refill, just like all current Lamy full-size ballpoint pens.

Unlike the Econ, the Xeno appears to be a twist retractable pen, more like the Baron Fig Squire or the Pilot Timeline than the knock-style Econ.
