The Lamy Tipo is one of the smoothest rollerballs available. Featuring a stylish design the tipo is accentuated by a striking and unique clip. When the clip is pressed to extend the rollerball tip the clip itself retracts into a slot in the shaft meaning that it can no longer be used to clip the pen onto a pocket. When the top of the clip is pressed however the rollerball tip disappears inside the body and the clip returns to its original position. The Lamy Tipo can once again be clipped onto a pocket without any risk of stains.
