Two months ago I started my dive into fountain pens and bought my first "Safari" which I found out today was a fake (yes it was the charcoal EF one with converter). What is frightening is that I have bought a Lamy 2000 on Amazon for $128 from "BestSource OfficeSupplies", and now I am afraid it too is a counterfeit. While the 2000 is around $159 on gouletpens.com, this was is significantly cheaper which now has me worried.
Has anyone ever gotten a fake 2000 before? I cannot find much info online, so I'm hoping the production process is too expensive for companies to "fake" the pen but you never know. Would there be any sure ways to tell if it was a fake?
