The Z28 Converter from Lamy (Previously the Z24)
Ink cartridge converters for Lamy fountain pens.
An alternative to using ink cartridges is to use a converter. This replaces the cartridge, and can be refilled when empty. Always use either Lamy ink or a good quality alternative. Please note this has been slightly updated and is known as a Z28 now. If we are out of stock of this product, the Z26 will also fit all Lamy pens and can be used as a substitute
This convertor is compatible with the following Lamy fountain pens:
For other Lamy fountain pens you will need to use the Lamy Z26 converter. Please see chart for which convertor fits which pen. Some pens also come with a converter. This is stated on the page for each pen.
- The Z28 now has a crystal clear resevoir rather than the previously frosted one
- The Z28 still has the location nubbins on either side so that it fits more securely in certain Lamy Pens (This means while you can replace a Z28 with a Z26 you cannot replace a Z26 with a Z28)
What we like about the product:
- The new Z28 converter looks much better with the clear resevoir through the cutouts in the Safari, Joy and Al-star
- Lead Times
Any Lamy pens that are marked as being 'special order' carry an extended lead time.
Special order pens are imported from Lamy for you. The process is that all orders in by 8.30am Monday or by 8.30am Thursday are ordered from the factory in Germany. We will usually despatch your order 4 to 6 working days later. Please note that the delivery method you choose will not shorten this lead time. Bank Holidays will also add a further delay.
For spare parts the lead time is 1-2 weeks depending on whether we have to get it from the Lamy Factory or the Lamy Repair Centre. We will aim to get the part with you as soon as possible though..
Note that if a pen shows as being 'in stock' or 'available' then this process doesn't apply. We have stock of that pen here in the UK and will despatch it according to the delivery service you have opted for.

- Product Questions
Total 2 question(s)
I just bought one of these, and was about to fill it but...I'm used to seeing a small plastic ball inside cartridges and converters and the one I have doesn't have one. Is this right? Or is there a bit missing? Thanks :)
Bureau replies: Z24 doen't come with little ball/agitator. Turning the pen in hand before writing will do the same thing :)
Will this work well with Blackstone ink?
Apologies for the delay in replying - we had staff sickness this week and managed to forget to keep an eye on the questions coming in whilst covering for her!
Absolutely no reason why not - Blackstone inks seem like very good quality inks. I did use one for a couple of weeks and it seemed to dry out quicker than other inks if I left the cap off, but otherwise should be fine to use in a Lamy converter. Go for it!
