Just superb May 22, 2014
Reviewer: William McVey from St. Catharines, ON Canada  
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.

Great pen, nib requires a little attention January 12, 2013
Reviewer: Henry Grady from Land O Lakes, FL United States  
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.

Lamy 300's a Winner September 26, 2012
Reviewer: jack Eadon from Tustin, CA United States  
I have a couple of Lamy's that I use for editing. This Lamy 3000 Stainless Steel is super.  Real precision "click" and fine ink delivery.  I'm surprised,  but very pleased that I added this pen to my collection of 100 pens!

Great Pen! September 14, 2012
Reviewer: Frank from Las Vegas, NV United States  
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!

a heavier flashier L2K September 3, 2012
Reviewer: Susan Long from Houston, TX United States  
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.
