Hey guys,

 

Does anyone know where I can pick up a Lamy 2000 (for less than $200) in Canada? I live in the Greater Toronto Area and shipping/customs/exchange rate coming in from the US is expensive. I've seen some retailers charge $200+ for a Lamy 2000 and that is out of my price range right now but I am dying to get my hands on one.

Any suggestions?

I suggest buying from overseas and having it shipped via registered mail to avoid import duty surprises. If you look at some European websites and remove the VAT it can be had for around $150-no-tax. My fav Lamy places are Appelbloom and Fontoplumo though I don't remember which one I got my 2000 from. I would recommend US sites but the exchange rate kills the deal. All the best!

Great service from CultPens in Devon, UK, and £124 + VAT. (No affiliation, just a regular and happy customer of theirs.)

Ok, I did a little checking... Unfortunately the running low on a L2K is around US$125 and that's from Amazon and shipping and import gets messy. Do you travel to Buffalo / Niagara? For $2 you can have it shipped there and pick it up in your pocket

All great ideas everyone, thanks for pitching in and helping me out!

That's the downside of being in Canada where FP are not very prevalent.

www.Stylo.ca is an online vender that does carry Lamy 2k at $199.00 CDN so it just meets your request.

Have bought many a pens from them, good service.

      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.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
