Lamy 2000 2021 edition?



Recommended Posts

There have been mentions that Lamy is planning a brown L2K release this year. Does anybody have any updates on

this?

I have no more information but after the dark blue one the brown will be a nice addition to any collection of Lamy 2000.

There was at some point a photo circulating here that was suggesting some of the new releases indeed. So far the AL stars and the Safari's actually were released. So lets hope this brown one also comes around... some day...  And lets hope it is more accessible than the blue one 😕

I don't have new info either, but here's the image that shows the Lamy SEs for this year. I'm waiting on pins and needles for the brown 2000 as well. I got lucky and got a brand new blue one for MSRP on ebay, but hopefully this one will be more readily available!

The packaging does look daunting in terms of pricing. Germany has been pretty hard hit by Covid lockdowns and the L2 requires a bit of hand assembly so that may be delaying the release.

A matte brown finish on a pen reminds me of ebonite that's been poorly taken care of. Not sure how I feel about this one. But the body-colored clip is interesting, wonder how they'll implement that.

I noticed the body-colored clip as well, although honestly I'm a little doubtful that I'll like it! It seems like especially when it's capped, having it be all brown will kind of detract from the "Lamy 2000" look. But we shall see...

Yea, it really depends on how it is implemented. I have a positive impression of body-colored clips, given my association of them is with those wonderful Namikis:

Lamy is certainly not going to use Maki-e, haha. But it will be interesting to see how they do it, and how durable the finish is.

 

That said, coloring the clip does indeed detract from the Bauhaus feeling of the pen. The Braun shaver-aesthetic is a part of the pen's identity.

It's great that Lamy and other pen manufacturers are hearing their clients, and the feasible Lamy 2000 in brown makrolon sounds fantastic, but...

 

How much are they going to charge us for the privilege of being heard?

 

Hopefully it's not a 100%-200% mark up with this one!

Good point -- Lamy's prices on their LE/SE 2000s have been exorbitant, which I feel they get away with since supply is relatively low.

I expect Lamy to sell these pens for a price point closer to that of the Lamy Bauhaus Limited Edition. The pen may or may not be numbered, but the presence of the notebook in the picture doesn´t seem to be a good omen for us. The box seems to be identical to the Bauhaus edition also.

Germany still seems to be largely closed down due to Covid so we may have to wait quite a while for this release.

I agree, those Namikis are amazing! Now that's a grail pen...

Probably old news by now,

Old news is new news to me, thank you for sharing !!😀

 

I got super excited and clicked the link, my pupils spanned wide open at the distinctive gorgeous chocolate brown 😍 and not a millisecond sooner I saw the printed value exchange for said prize...and a whole range of emotions ensued in the intervening seconds between image and text recognition  🧐 😳😥😱😭

No emotions for me really.  I'm not happy paying that price.  Love the colour though, but no thanks. :mellow:

Oohh, different colour and pay four times more..um....maybe not. Nice pen but the price turns it all to something else that's brown.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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.
    • A Smug Dill
      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
