Lamy 2000 Ballpoint With Gel Ink?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I already own a Lamy 2000 fountain pen, which I love. However, a fountain pen isn't always practical, and I'm considering getting a Lamy 2000 ballpoint pen (not a rollerball). I am a big fan of gel ink pens (including the refills made by Parker), and I would like to use gel ink in the 2000 if possible. I have seen that Monteverde has a ballpoint refill option, but as far as I can tell, the Monteverde ink is not gel.

 

Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase gel ink refills for Lamy 2000 Ballpoint pens?

 

Or is there a way to modify a popular gel ink refill to work with the Lamy 2000 ballpoints?

I can't help you with getting a refill for the normal ballpoint (Lamy use proprietry sizes), but another solution would be to buy the 4-colour ballpoint. The refills for this are standard D1 size, and looking online both Pilot (Hi-Tec-C) and Zebra (Sharbo X) make gel refills that would fit.

Thank you! I did not realize that the 4-colour pen used standard size refills. I definitely prefer the 2000, but the multi-pen is pretty neat. I'll check it out.

I have a 2000 multi-pen. Great pen.

In another note, the standard ballpoint I'm using takes in the M16 refill, wonder if there's any gel-based M16 refills or are they proprietory refill made by Lamy?

As far as I know there are no gel-based M16 refills but someone is sure to have more up to date info.

Thanks for the info. Actually gel-based inks are very nice to use but the regular ones are smooth enough.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
