Has anyone tried the NEW Kaco Edge? They seem to come in different colors now. I've been holding off on getting one because of all the cap cracking problems. I wonder if these (now colorful) ones are the pens I've been waiting for. - N
The tabs on my Lamy 2000 that are use to hold the cap seem to be rotated compared to all the other Lamy 2000s I've seen. Instead of being in line with the horizontal plane of the nib, it's rotated round by 30 degrees or so. The tabs are in the slots in the markolon collar that's on the section, so it seems that it is this collar that is rotated. In writing I don't really notice it but it's annoying that it's off as the pen is amazing in all other ways. Look at the disassembly video in the thread https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php?/topic/227631-lamy-2000-and-the-origins-of-
soniknitr posted a topic in Fountain Pen ReviewsSince, I do spend a fourth of my weekends on fpn browsing through reviews, I could not resist putting across a review of a pen that is universally loved and most excellently reviewed. My pen was a EF nib-QC victim at first, with a seemingly snug piston. However, the superb LAMY India customer service offered by an Indian retailer chain - William Penn, made sure that the nib was replaced with a smooth F-nib. I also have replicated the content with some additional pictures in my blog as the image upload size is limited by this free photo-sharing tool. Below is a link to the same: LAMY 200
I made a short video for the Lamy 2000 just for fun and I thought I'd share it with you guys. The video and editing style is obviously a blatant rip-off of theimmovablemovers' viral Namiki Falcon and Nakaya videos. I prefer the term 'inspired,' but yes, it's a rip-off. The dark background comes off really grainy and awful, so I apologise for that. It looked fine on my camera's display. I hope you enjoy the video.
My one year old, sparingly used lamy 2000 fp with the makrolon finish has developed mysterious whitish grey spots that just won't go. I've tried using a dry as well as a damp (with clean room temperature tap water) microfibre cloth to gently polish this away, but that didn't work. Did anyone ever face a similar issue. Would appreciate a solution, if any. I don't know the material quite well and am unaware of its properties and interactions with cleaning substances. I've already contacted lamy support, but past experiences with them haven't been satisfactory and never prompt. I've attached s
Hello, I was wondering if anyone else noticed some strange marks in the Makrolon, beneath the ink window, where the cap lip sits when the pen is closed. I'm talking about 2 parallel lines that run about half of the circumference of the pen, which look like they are inside the plastic (like too much stress inside the Makrolon caused it to fracture on the inside). It doesn't look like a crack, it kind of looks like there's a second ink window beneath the real one for half of the circumference. Thanks, Dragos
