Lamy 47 Ratio

1960s
About This Pen

Lamy is a German pen manufacturer that is famous for outstanding, foresightful engineering and for sticking with durable models for decades.  The Ratio was a sub-model of the 47 line, which was available throughout the 1960s and 1970s, a very well-made school pen. This pen, 13cm long and in dark blue, is largely of injected-molded plastic with a steel cap. Like many German pens, it is a piston filler, and a very efficient one at that. The nib is original, of gold, and writes a fine line. It is a great writer. It has a subtle inscription, of a former owner at an address in the Netherlands (that apparently is available for rent).

This pen is not for sale.
