Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen Review

Product Review of the Lamy 2000 Fountain Pens

The Lamy 2000 fountain pen comes in either black Makrolon, which is a lightweight fiberglass material, or the heavier metal, stainless steel version. The pen is designed with a piston fill mechanism and a semi-hooded 14 carat gold, platinum coated nib. On both versions of the pen the front grip section of the pen is made from the brushed stainless steel. They also both have a matching stainless steel, spring loaded clip.

Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen Review

Lamy 2000 Fountain uncapped Pen ReviewThe Lamy 2000 offers a modern streamlined design. It's simplistic design can be quickly overlooked but the pen is made with precision and high tolerance. One example is the piston fill mechanism. At the end of the barrel you can barely see when the seam between the barrel and the knob to fill the pen.

The packaging the pen comes in is simple and basic. It comes in a black cardboard box most Lamy pens arrive in. The box is held closed with a raised Lamy logo that protrudes through a hole in the box lid securing it in place. Nothing too fancy with the packaging just a practical design. Personally I am fine with the basic box but for those who love a nice display box this is not it.

Lamy 2000 Fountain Nib Pen ReviewThe 2000 is the flagship of the Lamy fountain pens and I can now see why. It has quickly become one of my favorite pens. A friend let me borrow their Lamy 2000 and I was immediately hooked. I love the way it writes! The pen has to be one of the smoothest writers I have used. Its 14k gold nib glides over the Rhodia pad I use. The pen is well balanced and feels great in my hand as I write. The stainless steel grip section gives the pen a weighted front end.

The Lamy 2000 is a piston fill fountain pen. There are four small transparent windows around the circumference of the barrel of the pen allowing you to view the ink level within the pen. The pen is machined with close tolerances and you have to look closely to see the seam between the barrel of the pen and the knob that actuates the piston mechanism.

Pros of the Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen

Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen Review Conclusion

If you are looking for a fountain pen with a gold nib that is not super expensive this has to be on the list. The nib is super smooth and the pen is made with tight tolerances and great quality. I would highly recommend the Lamy 2000 fountain pen to anyone considering it without hesitation. Great pen!

I needed a replacement for my old Lamy 2000 who unfortunately was badly damaged in an accident. The pen chalet was prompt and I got the pen within the week to use as my daily driver. Excellent service!

One of the best pens around. It may not look that fancy but the way it writes is to die for. My friend introduced me to this pen and after using it I immediately wanted one. It is very smooth and consistent. I'm left handed so writing with fountain pens has always been a little of a struggle but with the lamy 2k I found it very easy to find that perfect angle without having to awkwardly hold my wrist. Highly recommend!

The Lamy 2000 pen is all that I expected it would be. Fine nib writes fairly wet with Noodlers black ink. Feels very comfortable in hand and no issues with the ‘so called’ sweet spot. Works extremely well. Looking forward to using it regularly. Writes smoother than the steel nib Lamys.

So far I'm loving this pen. I'm trying to use it as much as possible since the look and feel of the pen fits very well with my professional career and also its not too flashy to carry around elsewhere. I also feel that the pen writes smoothly and is quite durable.

I purchased my first (of four) Lamy 2000 in 1972, in Germany at the local price at the time; I now own the stainless steel as a nice addition to my collection. My 2000s have the OM OB M and F nibs. It would be nice for dealers here to carry the range of nibs offered in Germany and elsewhere given the resurgence in fountain pen interest and use. Anyway, the 2000 is a go-to pen for me due it's exceptional, award winning design, solid/reliable construction and the demonstrated reliability of the piston fill mechanism. The nibs are superb with nice metering. Diameter of the pen reflects consideration for fit and use in the human hand. I'm able to write for hours with this pen.

I had to get another 2000 so I always have one nearby. This pen is very comfortable to write with for long stretches - it’s light and the pen finish looks better and better as it’s used. A truly classic, well-designed pen.

Love this pen! Quality build, fit and finish. Also, very cool looking! I'm a big fan of Japanese nibs (F), so I ordered this one with an extra fine (EF) nib. Very smooth writing with just a touch of feedback. Perfect, for me! Performs well posted or un-posted although for me, seems a little more balanced in the hand posted, so that's how I use it. All in all, a great pen. No regrets at all!

A classic that should always be a part of one’s journey into the fountain pen hobby.
With a solid writing experience and timeless look there is a reason this pen has existed virtually unchanged for over 50 plus years...

Nib writes vertical line thicker than horizental line, messing up my handwriting. This nib is not for me. returned.
