a new Lamy 2000 has arrived, it has an improved metal section and smoother piston,
it's about 4 grams heavier than the previous version.

Go on. Is this just a new make they are doing, or what? I purchased a Lamy 2000 back in January, and had no such metal secution.

Woof! Good! I had a lot of breakage problems with my Lamy 2000 4-color pen many years ago. It broke twice by the threads. The last factory repair (1995 or so) they finally beefed up the plastic of the nose cone, making that part less prone to break.

So far, no problems with my 2000 fp but I'm always glad to see careful improvements made to longstanding designs like the 2000 to make them even better.

Does anyone know exactly when this change was implemented at the factory?

Have there been other significant changes to the 2000 fp over the years? What are they?

My new Lamy 2000 looks like that new one.
It has a different metal section (different from the ones I have seen in the reviews section) and the piston is definetely smooth.

Very cool if this is the case. Seems like I got one just on the cusp of the new model. A guy had us special order one the other day, and it will be coming through us before it gets mailed out to him - I was thinking I would need to get some silicone grease for the piston so he's perfectly pleased with it, but if they've improved the pen that may not be neccessary.

I like the aesthetics of the old section more but the metal threads a smooth piston sounds nice.

Interesting...wonder if it'd kill the pen's ability to be converted to an eyedropper?

I hope those 4 grams aren't significant, though I kinda admit, I like the old style a lot

I already posted other informations in this topic.

http://www.fountainp...howtopic=102194

which talks about not only the 2000, but Lamy's attention to detail in all his product.

I think that policy makes the happyness of all his customers.

if i purchase a new LAMY 2000 fountain pen (BB) NOW (January 2011), will it have:

- the METAL sections, or

- the rubber/plastic sections

(underside ofthe nib feed and inside the piston)

humbly request to clarify my concern.

In the pictures in the first post, the new model is the one on the left with more metal in evidence.

Yes the new Lamy 2K will have the metal section. I ordered mine about 3 weeks ago from Amazon and it had the new section.

I like more the look's of the old section, with the black plastic feed... but if the change it's for the better, very welcome indeed.

Depends on how much stock of the old version the seller had on hand, also depends on the nib width (some are better sellers and were switched over/cleared out first).
