    Lamy 2000 And Nib Choice

    I'm planning to purchase a new Lamy 2000 online as my first expensive pen and I want to get the nib choice right. I like a western F, for example like a Goulet #6 F. Should I go with the F or the EF ? I realize varations of this question have been posted before. Some comments say their F is a true western F and some say it is more a M. I don't know what to think. Comments welcome. Thanks John
  3. I'm thinking of getting a Lamy 2000, but I'm not sold on the design, particularly the "brushed Makrolon" look. There are no nearby pen stores, so I'm stuck with pictures online, which can only show so much. Are the striations as obvious as they look in pictures? More generally, what reasons do (or did) y'all have for being skeptical of the 2000? Were they showstoppers? Were they overblown?

  6. Hi, So, recently, my brand-new stainless steel Lamy 2000 arrived… uncapped. According to the store, the cap came off during transport; hard to believe, in my opinion. I rather think that the pen was checked but not closed properly afterwards. I don’t know if it’s because the cap was totally loose in this big box or not, but I noticed some marks and even dents on the pen body. Are these kinds of things to be expected on a brand-new metal fountain pen? Personally, I find it hard to believe the loose cap has nothing to do with these; still, if they’re in the range of normal, I’m willing to
  7. Here is the my latest pen! This is an ebonite pen, with an acrylic window within the section and the barrel. It is a capless pen with a twist mechanism, similar to the safety pen one. Twisting the section onto the barrel allows the nib to come in and out. The nib is juicy and flexible (Wahl eversharp #2). The filling mechanism is a copy of Fountainbell's bulkfiller with a modified magnetic (neodymium magnet) mechanism to retain the filling pellet. The barrel end is decorated with an amethyst. The pen length is 12,6 mm length closed and 13,4 mm opened, the maximum diameter is 16mm. The fill
  8. Can you believe it? I really did not need another pen, but I got one anyway. The Lamy 2000 Fine - Macrolon. It is my 3rd Western fine, vs. the Waterman Carene and Pelikan M120 Iconic Blue. On paper their line output is almost identical. The Pelikan I would consider slightly wet and the Lamy and Waterman neither wet nor dry. The Waterman is 18K gold, the Lamy 14K and the Pelikan is steel. For me, they were almost all identical in price. The Pelikan is lightest and smallest, then the Lamy, then the Carene, although the Lamy mid-barrel is a bit wider in diameter than the Carene. The Wat

    Lamy 2000 Leaks At "ears"

    My Lamy 2000 leaks at the "ears" that keep the cap in place. Suggestions? Thanks!
  10. Hey everyone! This is my first post though I've been reading the forums a lot since I first realised that I'm addicted There is so much info on the forums that I really didn't have any reason to ask something. Until now. I've read a lot about Lamy 2k RB and I was very sure that it accepts Pilot G2 refills (and it should accept Uni super ink refills as well). So I went ahead and got this pen during my last trip to Italy without checking whether the refill fits or not. When I got home I was pretty much confused that it does not accept the G2 refill. And the reason is a small step inside clo
  11. These are writing samples using just a single unit of each model of LAMY EF nib I have, without any claim or implication that one unit of (say) Z55 EF nib will be identical or comparable with a different unit of such. The first six nibs were all fitted in turn onto the same feed on the same pen drawing from the same reservoir (i.e. converter) of LAMY Benitoite ink. Each nib was cleaned in a dilute solution of ammonia and detergent and patted dry on a paper towel immediately before fitting on the LAMY cp1 pen used, then pressed against a paper towel until the ink being drawn through is dark e
  12. Hi folks So I've been struggling to find a blue ink for my Lamy 2000 EF with my custom Mark Bacas nib. I'd prefer a bulletproof or water resistant ink, but the inks I've tried so far (Noolders Elysium blue, Kon-Peki, Prime of the Commons) either bleed through my Leuchtturm, or take ages to dry. I've got the Pilot nano sou boku ink, but am a bit hesitant to use due to the potential additional cleaning I may have to do due to the pigment. Any thoughts, wisdom, or opinions welcome!

    Too Good To Be True?

    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 in
  14. Lamy have different 14K gold nibs 2000 series nibs Z 55 --> dialog 3, studio, cp1 and others Z 56 --> imporium palladium finish and rose gold Z 57 --> imporium black and black/gold finish I'm planning to upgrade the nib of my Lamy Logo with a gold springy Lamy nib (I want a springer nib without expend much money buying another pen, I like my Logo), but what are the differences between Z 55, Z 56 and Z 57? In pages like nibsmith or appelboom for example, Z 56 and Z 57 have a higher cost compared to Z 55. Of course! Z 56 and Z 57 are the Lamy imporium nibs and have some minimal dif

    Pen Pit Stop : Lamy 2000

    Pen Pit Stop : Lamy 2000 Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that arrives at the pit stop today is the iconic "Lamy 2000". This pen - from a design by Gerd A. Müller - is a t
  17. This review is of the Lamy 2000, in the standard Makrolon finish that has been with us since 1966. I bought it through Amazon.co.uk for the great price of 100 pounds (about 130 euros then). Prices fluctuate from day to day and even from nib width to nib width. In shops in Belgium, the standard price seems to be 205 euros. Despite there being a more expensive model in the shape of the Lamy Imporium, that still makes this Lamy's flagship model. Or, I should say, the metal version of the 2000 is. Perhaps it is surprising in itself that this, at 205 euros, can be considered a flagship. Lamy is n

    Lamy 2000 Vs. Pelikan M200

    Hello, I posted this in the Pelikan board but thought the Lamy board would have something to add. Lately I've been looking at Pelikan pens a lot and the M215 and M200, but I'm hesitant because I've got a lot of German nibs, andI already have a German nib piston filler in the Lamy 2000 and TWSBI Eco. I should also mention I haven't had issue no.1 with either pen, and never seen the "sweet spot" problem. Is there anyone who owns both pens and finds it worthwhile? Is the nib a different enough writing experience to buy it?
  19. Hi! May I ask if anyone has encountered rust spots on their LAMY 2000 Black Amber before? I have just kept it in the box or on my desk for some time and the next time I looked carefully I saw spots! I have tried to wipe it off with a clean cloth but the spots do not go away. Some of the smaller ones go away if i try to scratch it off with my fingernail. Does anyone recommend any fixes to this? Thank you!
  20. I'm really interested in acquiring my own Lamy 2000 but not sure I want a M or B nib. Anyone out there have a M or B they're willing to loan?
