That's certainly a good idea that I may try,thanks!
Thank you for taking the time to read my comments and respond.
Yes, I definitely think it would behoove you to go STRAIGHT to the source and send the pen directly to their HQ in Germany; especially since this is such an extreme case... I've NEVER heard of an L2K being sold as new in such a deplorable state.
I've heard great things about Lamy service; so I'm sure everything will be made right for you.
