Lamy 2000 Ballpoint With Gel Ink?



camd

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.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
