A Blue Lamy 2000 Coming

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the photos! I guess it's difficult to capture the dark blue. Now that Lamy has done its best to hype the release, I wonder how the public will respond. Will it really sell out quickly?

 

I contacted Schimpf directly; they told me it would be awhile before they put the pen on their site.

Exactly it’s very difficult to capture the dark blue. The pen weighs more or less the same as the black makrolon. The journal that comes with pen is really thick. Will the marketing hype succeed at the end? I don’t know . If you can get it from Fritz Schimpf, go for it. They’re good dealer. However I had only a single experience from buying a Pelikan from them but it was really good. I then stopped buying Pelikan from most of the famous pen webstores after I found out that I could actually buy Pelikan from some wholesalers’ websites at wholesaler price.

Thanks for the photos!

I am waiting on mine. The Lamy webshop still has some stock for over a week now.

 

Correction: no more availability as of today.

Great photos everyone!

 

I wasn't overly invested in the notebook from the promos, but seeing them here does pique my interest. The blue of the 2k looks a dream too. Still waiting on my UK order, but I'm super hyped.

One of the "problems" with using other than black macrolon was that when you blended the stainless steel Section and the macrolon the stainless would bleed across into the macrolon. But it was "less noticeable" with the black.

Do you notice any issues with the blue macrolon?

Do you mean "Can NOT see any of this on my pen."?

 

I never believed this "myth".

And if there is any smearing of the stainless onto the macrolon i would have thought that it would be more noticeable on the black barrels, not less.

Mnah i dont believe it either.

If the smearing would occur on the macrolon they would probably sand it from the macrolon to the metal. Should be easily removed from the metal part.

I believe that. Once got a Edition2000 stainless steel pen with macrolon section and there were fine particles of macrolon stuck to the stainless steel part - big enough I had to remove them with a plastic spatula.

I must admit to being just a little surprised by how muted the blue is. In some lights it looks almost black.

Here's a comparison I took this morning to try to show the differences. One thing I did not notice until they were side-by-side is that the clip on the Bauhaus edition is polished rather than brushed metal.
The EF nib is lovely though and the accompanying notebook appears to be really high quality paper and binding.

It depends a lot on the light: here are two pics I took outside on a sunny day.

Indoors, in "normal" light, it's a "blue-black" for sure, as @Craiglea's photo depicts...

You might contact Rolf at missingpen. No guarantee, but he told me he hadn't received any pre-orders yet back around the middle of August.

      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.
