Lamy Z28 Fountain Pen Converter

Lamy Z28 Converter

The Z28 is a fountain pen converter built for Lamy fountain pens. It is the replacement for the older Z24, which looks almost identical. The Z28 has a metal band in the middle but is primarily made of plastic. It’s a twist-style converter with a proprietary shape designed to only work with Lamy pens.

The Z28 converter has two guideposts on the sides, which are designed to work with Lamy’s Safari-style pens. Interestingly, Lamy’s other converters — the Z26 and Z27 — will work with any Lamy fountain pen while the Z28 will only work with pens that accept the posts.

The full list of pens that the Z28 works with is:

  • AL-Star
  • Joy
  • LX
  • Nexx
  • Safari
  • Vista

The capacity of the Z28 is 0.8 ml, making it significantly smaller in capacity than Lamy’s T10 cartridges.
