I Hurt My Lamy 2000



Recommended Posts

I recently bought a new Lamy 2000. A couple days after using it, I dropped it by accident and it fell on its nib. Now, there is a small split and I cannot write with it. What can I do? If I send it to Lamy, will they fix it, or does this count as abuse?

Well, either way you will have to send it to Lamy. Most likely you will have to pay though, it's not a fault on their part.

Pen companies sometimes tend to be quite accommodating with these matters.

 

When my Pelikan M800 fell on the floor the repairs / replacement of the nib were done free of charge by Pelikan. The pen was under guarantee and all I had to pay was the transport cost to send the pen to the nearest distributor although this was clearly due to NO fault on the part of the manufacturer or distributor.

 

Maybe an email or phone call first could give one an idea of what could eventually cost.

The exact same thing happened to my Lamy late in 2012. It took nearly a year (delays in shipping, miscommunication, and whatnot to blame), but I eventually got my 2k back without having to pay anything. They even touched up the machining on the cap and barrel, so it looked as good as new afterwards. While I can't guarantee that you'll get off scot-free as I did (I mean, come on, eight months? They were kinda at fault for that :P), I can say that Lamy has excellent after-sales service.



Best of luck!

nah I'm not satisfied with how Times trading handles after-sales service to Lamy pens in the PH... which was why I kinda forced myself to go to one of the pen meets just to have the nib tuned... 2 months and no result... :< and they would have to end up needing for me to wait half a year before new shipment arrives I was like... I know I could have tuned it myself but then it was a golden nib and if I screwed up I would have screwed up big time... sigh... pretty much if your going to ask for a tuning in the Philippine's Lamy service don't count on it but eh... parts and service is one of the hassles as well because they still have to wait for bulk shipping to germany <_< again thats like time.

 

but my problem was that the flow of the nib was too dry that it was skipping it's smooth and I had to verify with the loupe and the nib was clear, I sent it to the local distributor/service center in the Philippines and they just cleaned the pen... JUST BLOODY CLEANED THE PEN came out worst but eh... what can I do oh and I left the pen to them very clean as well... and a lot of mishap in the system sigh... well I guess it because everyone here uses ball points and techpoints 99% of the time and really has no marginal market for FPs

      Not sure if this has been suggested already but would a setting for localized regions or chapters in FPN be helpful? I don't know if there is a way to find local FPN members who would be nearby. I don't know if we want to be discoverable but a setting to know how many members are in 25, 50, or a 100 miles of each other might be helpful. We can create a regions specific network like Craigslist where people could use that to connect with nearby members, conduct in person sales, arrange FPN meetups

      Hi again all, I forgot to tell y'all that I made the post about Sweden ink PIF. Most have probably found it long ago, but here's a link, anyway:

      I read your blog post and all the replies with much interest. I'm a FP user in Australia. Been part of this forum for years but rarely post. I did come across your ink sharing thread and considered participation. For me it's not lack of interest but lack of time to play around with FP and inks. I'd feel bad to put my hand up for the box and just have it sit until gosh knows when...   I also think that the FP community in Australia is smaller, and I wonder how many in the community are

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
