- 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 9.30am Monday or by 9.30am 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.
Please contact us for more details if needed.

Total 3 question(s)
I have a damaged nib on a Lamy safari. Can it be replaced? Thanks
Bureau replies: Lamy nibs on Safari pens can be swapped easily. Pull if off the nib (we recommend using tape) and replace with new one...
Does this nib fit the Safari fountain pen?
Bureau replies: yes, these nibs are compatible with the Lamy Safari.
Is this nib compatible with Lamy Accent Pens?
It depends - most Lamy fountain pens take the Z50 nibs, except for a few top-end pens. The Accent range is split - some take the Z50 some take the more expensive gold nib.
The AI pen does take a Z50 - https://www.bureaudirect.co.uk/lamy-accent-ai-fountain-pen
The 98 series doesn't, and can't take replacement nibs at all as Lamy won't offer them - https://www.bureaudirect.co.uk/lamy-accent-98-fountain-pen
