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.

This pen only uses bottled ink, which is not included with this pen. Check out our collection of bottled fountain pen inks here!

One of the greatest pens...
June 3, 2012
One of the greatest pens ever. Nearly perfect in every way.

Keep in mind:
nibs run large and usually wet
piston filler (requires bottled ink)
the cap nubs on the section bother some people
the ink window is smaller than most but still functions
cap clip has sharp corners
the makrolon eventually develops a shinier patina

Just received this yesterday; it's been on my want list for a year. I've used Safari fountain pens for years, and I'm excited to step up to Lamy's higher-level of elegance.

Pen writes exceptionally well; fine nib writes like something between a fine and a medium nib on a Safari.

Filling was easier than I'd anticipated, and I love bottled ink, so that's not a concern. I am curious about cleaning and drying the pen when I choose to change inks - I'm used to pulling the converter out of my Safari to allow everything to dry as quickly as possible.

Looking forward to having this pen for a long time!

The Lamy 2000 Fine has the smoothest gold nib I have bought for a modern fountain pen. The wider barrel acts gives the pen an ergonomic feel to it. The material of the pen allows for very good grip at all times. The fit and finish is above average.

I'm glad to hear that...

I'm glad to hear that a lot of people have had great experiences with this pen. Unfortunately, I have not.

PROS: The pen has a very elegant design, and everything seems to be very well manufactured regarding tolerances. The piston filler body is easy to use, and if needed can be somewhat straightforward when disassembling for cleaning & maintenance/storage. The weight is also right on par with my preference. I enjoy pens that don't have that "plastic appearance", but I also do not necessarily care for a really heavy pen. This pen (along with my Lamy 2000 rollerball), are my go-to pens for dress shirts, as they don't weigh down the pockets, and the pocket clip can spring open with the press of a button.

CONS: The nib is really hit or miss. I've used the Extra Fine (EF), Fine (F), and now about to move to Medium (M) because of how constantly disappointed I've been with how "scratchy" the pen is. The worst part of this pen is the recent issue I've had, which may have just been a "lemon" with regards to quality control standards; the pens body has a hairline crack along the reservoir window. I discovered this after finding ink on my hand nearly every time I used the pen. I thought the cap may have been dirty, so I cleaned it and the issue persisted. I hadn't dropped the pen or anything, but it did go a while without use and was left clean and free of ink in storage.

CONCLUSION: Aesthetically, it hits the mark. Functionally and reliably though, it leaves me on the hunt for something else.

I absolutely love this...
February 6, 2015
I absolutely love this pen. It's been my daily writer for about a year now. It starts a line without a stutter even if it's been uncapped for a few minutes. The ink reservoir is large and makes it through the day. I've yet to have it leak in my bag (though I admit I'm careful about how I stash it....). I've flown with it with no troubles.

People always want to write with it. I don't let them. Mine!

My only wish is that "fine" was more fine....
