    Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen Variant Logo?

    Purchased a Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen. As expected there is a Germany 2 stamp on the back of the pocket clip. However, on the side of the pocket clip the Lamy logo was not laser engraved. Instead the letters are raised. Is this an older variant of the logo? A newer one?
  2. A little while ago, a member posted a picture of his homemade clip for the Kaweco Liliput. In my opinion, the Liliput badly needs a clip solution, if only to keep it from rolling off tables. Unfortunately, I'm not a metalsmith, so I can't make one like that myself. But there is something I've wanted to try for a while, at the admitted risk of scratching the Liliput's finish. Fisher, makers of the Space Pen ballpoint, make removable clips for their bullet style Space Pens. Sometimes they come with a new pen; sometimes you have to buy it as an extra; they package it in several different ways. The clips are stainless steel and come in chrome, black, and gold finishes. Well, it worked. The Space Pen is on the right. http://i614.photobucket.com/albums/tt221/mapn/Demo/Liliput3%201_zpsgmmkfn4f.jpg With the Space Pen, the cap is tapered, which makes it easy to slide on. With the Kaweco, I first tried to pre-spread the clip a bit by sliding it as far down as I could on the tapered barrel of a Pilot Parallel. That may have widened it a little bit. In any case, I had no trouble getting it onto the Kaweco Cap, just had to spread it a little with my fingers. It's a fairly tight fit, but as far as I can tell, I didn't scratch the finish. Now that it's on there, I don't plan to move it around a lot. I lined it up this way as the most esthetically pleasing. http://i614.photobucket.com/albums/tt221/mapn/Demo/Liliput5%201_zpsd9xtcy43.jpg People who like their clips to be precisely aligned with the nib when writing might not care for this, as, at least on my pen, the clip is cocked about 45º to the right when screwed on in the posted position. That doesn't bother me, though. Again, there has to be some chance of the clip scratching the finish, particularly if you're always adjusting it. It seems to be on there very securely, though. It won't promote the Liliput to the status of one of my absolute favorites, but I'm likely to use it more often now than I would otherwise.
