Haha, great experiment! Now you've got me looking at the Lamy 2K more closely as a potential future pen. And I'm beginning to worry that my collection is starting to get out of control! :P

Nice review. I love my 2000 because I can bring it with me anywhere without having to worry about ruining it.

For the record, I've had the misfortune of dropping my 2000 from a standing position with the cap posted. Naturally, the front end of the pen being particularly heavy, it landed nib first. I'm a fairly short individual, around 165cm in height, but that was enough to irreparably damage the nib. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but it will need quite a bit of work done to restore it to proper writing condition. I opted to purchase a new nib and feed unit, but I'm holding onto the original nib to one day have it modified into a crisp CI.

Moral lesson? None, really.

Contribution to public knowledge?The Lamy 2000 is a tank while capped, not so much when uncapped :P
Oh wait, moral lesson: use a cheaper, steel-nibbed pen when writing in a standing position, haha.
