Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen - Stainless Steel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunner that writes flawlessly! My first L2K (from another vendor) gave me lots of skipping problems, so it was with some apprehension that I decided to get the pricier L2K in steel. Upon receiving the pen and inking it up, my initial fears quickly dissolved as the pen wrote a true EF line and the nib flowed beautifully across the paper. Love it! Flow—the flow of the pen was just right, allowing me to write on even cheaper 70gsm paper with no feathering, increasing the versatility of this pen. Nib performance—Smooth! Not overly smooth to the point of losing control while writing. Just about perfect for my tastes. Weight—Some find it too heavy. I enjoy the more substantial weight as I am quite used to using aluminium pens. Huge thanks to Drew for inspecting the nib of my pen and the team at Gouletpens for your amazing store and service. Will not hesitate to recommend this pen to any who are on the fence about it! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Der UeberLAMY! The Lamy 2000M (stainless) with a medium nib turned out to be my Christmas present for this past year - and what a present it was! This pen is perhaps not a better writing instrument than a regular Macrolon Lamy 2000. However, it is one of the most fascinating pens I ever owned: a great writer, despite its 'massive' weight superbly balanced, and the very embodyment of minimalism made it a must for me (being a L2k afficionado with three iterations of the Macrolon version continually inked). Despite its weight, it feels not at all unwieldy, despite the smoothness of the finish it feels not slippery, and the overall impression is one of understated elegance and quality; to me, most other pens in this price class appear either gaudy or flimsy or both by comparison. Flow and smoothness were superb out of the box. I can see that I will probably miss the ink window, but for now I simply carry a small vial of 'refill' (Rohrer & Klingner "Sepia" or Diamine "Graphite" for this pen). When not in use, the L2KM is a wonderful finger toy with the ambiance of a finely crafted piece of art... Phenomenal!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great pen, nib requires a little attention Love this pen far more than the Makrolon (sp?) version. I like the heavier feel of the pen. It's also beautiful to look at. This is my sixth Lamy 2000 (I have traded a couple), and my experience with the nib is standard: a little scratchy, a little dry. I'm comfortable adjusting my nibs, so I wasn't concerned. Now it writes a comfortable, wet, Med Fine-type line. Another alternative is to swap the nib with another Lamy 2000 that you are happy with (if you have multiple). I think Brian did a video where he showed how to swap out the nibs. Anyway, highly recommended with the caveat that the nib may need some adjusting to suit your personal taste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a heavier flashier L2K I am not sure why I bought this because I don't like really heavy pens, but I adore my Makrolon L2K, so I just couldn't resist. It writes like a heavier L2K, and it is gorgeous! Lack of ink window does not bother me at all. It is very noticeably heavier than the original, so keep that in mind. But I'm keeping mine and I like writing with it. Can't beat the nib.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L2K SS I've had this pen for about a month. It started out disappointingly scratchy although now I find the nib very smooth and satisfactory. I've heard some complain about the cap attachment mechanism but I find it completely unobtrusive. It has an impressive heft and build quality. Stylistically it's my favorite pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen! I love my Lamy 2000s in Makrolon, and this Stainless Steel version is very similar. It is heavier, but I use most pens unposted, so I just find this one to be well-balanced. It has all the other attributes, piston filler, hooded nib, smooth writer--in many ways, the perfect fountain pen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy but smoooooth writer This was my grail pen, so to me it's perfect. :-) It is quite heavy, but feels solid and well made. The nib is smooth with just the right amount of feedback on rougher papers and the piston filling is wonderful. However, if you are looking for a pen to write a novel with, probably go with the regular 2000. I use this pen daily to do homework and take notes in class, but I certainly won't use it to write the first draft of my dissertation..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just superb Before I ever saw the Lamy 2000 in stainless steel I knew I wanted something just like it (a high quality unadorned fountain pen machined from stainless steel). I was pretty excited to learn that such a thing actually existed, and even more excited to get one as a graduation present. The nib on my pen is exceptionally smooth. It glides across paper like a hot cat through butter. The nib has a very small amount of flex that gives my writing an interesting character not present when I write with other pens. Excellent though it may be, the stainless steel 2K may not be the best choice for everyone. The Makrolon version is considerably lighter, and is still made of an extremely durable material ( I think I heard somewhere that they make riot shields out of it actually). The pen is quite heavy, which suits me fine. I hold an iron tattoo machine eight hours a day, so there is no such thing as a heavy pen as far as I'm concerned, but if you write a lot, maybe consider the Makrolon.
