Lamy 2000 Nibs
Posted 14 January 2020 - 17:08
I can't provide a comparison as I don't have an OBB,
But I have a BB and it's very wet, really noticeably broad, serving up something similar to the 1.1mm italic rather than just a slightly thicker line - fantastic for using with shimmer or sheen inks. You have to really want a BB if you get this one.
Too many pens, too little time!

As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.

I only have the BB and an EF.
The BB is a hair stubby, but not a ton so. Flow wasn't gusher wet, but was perfectly adequate.
I'm honestly going to have it reground to a cursive italic since I don't really need/want a 2000 as a signature pen.

Beware of having a Lamy 2000 broad reground to cursive italic. The flow that is "adequate" for a B or BB can overwhelm the italic property and just leave wet, wide strokes in any direction. I have been fighting exactly this in my B -> 0.7mm CI grind since getting it; it only shows its line variation with a few ugly dry inks like Pelikan Blau-Schwarz. Make sure the grinder adjusts flow way down from the stock Lamy B/BB adjustment, if that is even possible!
