As a buyer on the US east coast, is 175 USD for a Lamy 2000 new from the UK (plus 6 USD shipping) a price too good to be true? I see them at most online retailers for much more than that, and don't want to risk a problem with the purchase. I recently went to my first pen show in DC, got to try a lot of really cool pens, among them a particular amber model by Dan Symonds that I nearly bought on the spot, and would have if for a lack of restraint, and ultimately decided that answer to the ever-present system of attainability and enjoyability is the Lamy 2000, M. I have put quite a bit of work into finding the best price I can — I'm always one to hold change tightly — but I want to make sure there's nothing wrong going on here before I send my hard earned dollars across the Atlantic. And of course, if anyone has a recommendation for a better (read "less expensive", though anything is welcome) mode or method of acquiring one of these fantastic instruments, I of course am more than happy to read it.
(I've included an image of a Lamy 2000 from a review on EDJelly below. I'm sure you've all seen one, but this makes admiring it all the more easy.)
