The Lamy 2000 is Lamy's flagship fountain pen. For this black version, the body is made of a fiberglass known as Makrolon, and brushed stainless steel trim provides accents. The lightweight body contains a traditional piston filler mechanism that can be filled with bottled inks only, and has a large capacity. The pen barrel also features four small window sections above the grip to view the ink inside. The platinum-coated nib is made of 14 carat gold. The Lamy 2000 is so revered that it is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art and has won countless design awards. This luxurious pen will be a prized item in anyone's collection!

To fill the Lamy 2000, first unscrew the end of the pen, which will lower the inside piston, and push all air out of the inside of the barrel. Then, dip the pen in an ink bottle fully submerging the nib. Twist the barrel end back down to screw the pen together, which will cause the inside piston to rise while sucking ink out of the bottle, and into the pen barrel.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 5.4 inches (13.8 cm) long when capped, 6 inches (15.2 cm) long from tip of nib to end of cap when cap is posted on pen barrel, and 0.5 inches (13 mm) in diameter.

Note: This pen may come with ink residue in the nib from being dip tested by Lamy at the factory. As with all new fountain pens, we recommend giving your Lamy a good cleaning before you use it.

Here's a little-known...
September 25, 2012
Here's a little-known fact about the Lamy 2000: for whatever reasons, this pen is relatively leak-proof at altitude. So while I wouldn't WRITE with it in an airplane, you actually can (and I have) travel with a partially full 2000 and not end up with a cap (or pocket) full of ink. A little extra design perk. Few fountain pens pass this test unless they are specifically designed to resist changes in air pressure.

The Bauhaus-inspired...
August 2, 2012
The Bauhaus-inspired Lamy 2000 piston-filled fountain pen has been in continuous production since it was introduced in 1966, but it actually contains elements, including the nib size and shape, of earlier Lamy piston-filled pens, most notably the Lamy 27. This top-of-the-line Lamy fountain pen is very well-made and handles beautifully. It is lightweight, being made mostly of matte-textured Makrolon, a mixture of fiberglass and plastic resin (not fiberglass and stainless steel, as mentioned in the JetPens description), complemented with a brushed stainless steel hooded section. The Lamy 2000 was the very first writing instrument to feature a solid, stainless steel, articulated (spring-loaded clip) that adapts nicely to any pocket thickness. The Lamy 2000 extra-fine nib is not as narrow as a typical Japanese nib, and it might be considered closer to what most people would think is a fine-width nib. However, Lamy 2000 nibs are smooth writers, and the L2K feed has excellent flow. The piston-filler mechanism works very well and will provide years of excellent service. If necessary, for cleaning or repair, the “L2K” can be easily dismantled and reassembled without tools. Also, Lamy USA can supply some replacement parts and customer service is excellent.
Please note that, although it slides onto the feed like other Lamy nibs, the Lamy 2000 nib is a different size and shape when compared to the Safari/CP1/Accent/AL-Star-type nib.

I love this pen. I started...
January 24, 2014
I love this pen. I started with a Lamy Safari and soon graduated to this pen - while I liked the Safari, the Lamy is simply a whole different writing experience. It's smooth, smart, lays a solid line. Less trouble with starts after being uncapped (my Safari was unusable at work due to this, but my 2000 is a GREAT work pen....). So far I haven't had any bad inks (my Safari doesn't like the Diamine inks... it gets all crusty.... but they're fine in the 2000).

It sounds cheesy, perhaps - but writing is such a pleasure with this pen. It feels like an indulgence each time I post the cap and start my writing session.

If I lost my pen, I'd buy a new one.

Only thing to be aware of: don't damage the tip! I dropped it on a cement floor tip down and bent the nib - cost nearly $90.00 to have the nib replaced. Not a cheap fix, but cheaper than a new pen. The fault wasn't the pen's - but my butterfingers taught me a lesson about being more careful....

While the Lamy 2000 is...
March 21, 2013
While the Lamy 2000 is a modern looking and well made pen, the nib is a problem for me. The extra fine nib is much wider than one would expect - at least a fine, maybe a fine-medium width. It is also more flexible compared to Safari and other Lamy nibs. This also contributes to wide lines. While I like the appearance of the pen, and the history behind it, I just don't like to write with it. It basically sits in my pen box on display.
