Hey Guys,

 

Edit: My apologies! I now realize that I put this in the wrong forum! I didn't realize this was intended for pens from the USA, I thought it was general about the pen community in the USA.

 

I am looking to pick up a Lamy 2000 as my first gold nib pen. I have had a Lamy Aion (M) for a while and really like it (except for the cap rattle, but I've been able to fix that with some tinkering. With the Aion, the medium is good when writing on quality paper (i.e. Rhodia), but when I write on lesser quality (I write on medical charts all day), I find it slightly too bold. I'm really torn as to if I should get it in a Fine or Medium nib because it is an investment.

 

I have been searching all over the DFW metroplex for a place where I could test both to see which one I prefer before buying. Im normally willing to take the risk, but I really would like this pen to be my daily workhorse. I have found few places in DFW that carry fountain pens in general and none that carry the Lamy 2000.

 

I am also driving to Austin this Friday, so any places there would also be appreciated!

 

If anybody knows a place where I could test one out, it would be a miracle. If not, any opinions on the Lamy 2000 nibs would be amazing!

 

Y'all are the best!

Any pen convention near you would be a great place to check it out!  The nib is very smooth, but tends to have a sweet spot when it comes to writing angle.  It is also very wet and springy, super nice!
