2000
I purchased the 2000 stainless steel version with fine nib. When the pen arrived the cap was somewhat scratched, perhaps from being tossed around in transit. When I contacted Pen Chalet, they instantly responded and sent a new pen with a return label for the old one.
My Lamy 2000 fine point is a wet pen and as such works best on premium grade paper. When used with a dryer ink, the pen works well on paper of lesser quality. Lamy 2000 stainless steel is a heavy pen and manufactured to very exacting specifications. It is solid and well made.

This is a good pen for larger hands and for someone who likes a bit more weight in their pen. Posting it though unbalances it -- expect that you will use it unposted. The nib has a "sweet spot" that takes some getting used to, especially with the black nib that is harder to get used to as far as sensing its proper alignment on the paper. This appears to be a Lamy characteristic and after a few days now, I have gotten the "touch" automatically.

Bottled Ink(50ml)
A bright blue similar to the deepest blue of a sunny sky. Flows very well. Bottle design is hand with recessed well in bottom except recess could be a bit deeper I think. The blotter strip holder is actually the base with a hole in the middle for the filling recess to drop down into.

This is my first Lamy and I now understand why they are so popular. It's really comfortable to write with. I got the EF to write on cheap paper with even though I generally prefer medium and stub nibs. It has a little feedback which is expected, but it writes really smoothly and consistently.

Safari Dark Lilac
Beautiful letters are sent to me, written with this pen. It is as it is, a Safari, and the safari is the adventure itself. I do believe that with the price, Lamy should automatically offer a converter. Pilot does this with the Metropolitan.

Excellent quality. Thin barrel but has nice heft due being made of metal. Writes smooth, almost like a fine ballpoint, but not. Love the matte black finish so it doesn't show my fingerprints all the time. I use it everyday at work and have received several compliments from clients.

2000
I love this pen. I love the way it feels in the hand and I love the way it writes. I've been using it for about a month and I've yet to experience a skip. There are plenty of reviews out there for a pen that's been around for a while, so I'll just leave it at "I love it."

As for Pen Chalet, I couldn't be happier. The price was right and they shipped this thing FAST. I'll be back.

Just wow! Purchased the Extra Fine nib and it is glassy smooth. This pen is quite the looker and even my husband (not into fountain pens) kept picking the pen up and saying how cool it is. Great weight and feel to the pen too.

This is about the Wild Rubin model. A nicely-styled Lamy fountain pen, in an eye-catching but not super-flashy shade of red. It has a nice weight and is well-balanced in my hand. The smoothest-writing fountain pen I own.

Safari Dark Lilac
This is my second Lamy Safari fountain pen and this one is better than my first. The finish of pen is slightly rougher than my other Safari (not the Dark Lilac) so it doesn't slide in my hand. The color of the ink is slightly underwhelming, it's bluer than I was expecting. But that's minor. I really like this pen.

Safari Dark Lilac
Nice work horse pen. Love the dark lilac with black nib (broad). Rinsed the nib with water before inking up with Diamine Imperial ink. No hard starts or skips. Smooth on Rhodia paper. Some feed back on inexpensive paper. No bleed through. Appreciated the excellent service from Pen Chalet!!

I bought this to use with my Safari and Al-Star. They are easy to swap around so I can write in a line width appropriate to the paper and type of writing I am doing.

Safari
I bought several of these with 1.5 mm stub nibs after testing one to make sure the feed could keep up with the nib. I use them for sketching and have different inks in each pen. Now if Lamy would make a converter that would hold 2+ ml of ink they would have a five star setup. Converters need to come into the twenty first century. At present nothing beats a Noodlers Ahab converted to an eyedropper filler or a TWSBI Vac 700 to keep a plein air urban sketcher happy!

/ Filofax Gift Set - Notebook & AL-Star
This is a great set at a great price point. I got both this and the Safari set and it was interesting comparing the two (the aluminum pen is noticeably better-made in a couple of small ways). Cannot believe how well a pen at this price works. And the big surprise was how useful the Filofax is - pull-out pages that can be pushed back in, dividers, a ruler, pockets - it's super-useful. Incredible deal- if more pen colors were available in it I'd pick up some more. Might even pick up more to run different inks.
