Very Broad Nib October 22, 2013
Reviewer: Marta Traughber from San pedro, CA United States  
I like broad nibs, but this one is super broad.  I wish I could try a medium to see if I like it better.  At first I couldn't figure out how to fill it, but then I watched some Youtube videos that set me straight.  Writes super smoothly and it's so handsome.  I love the clip too.

Not a nice B nib April 19, 2013
Reviewer: Carlos from San Juan, Puerto Rico  
As all Lamy pens, the Lamy 2000 is well designed and constructed. No problems with size, weight, posting or the "little ears" which seem to bother some people. However, the nibs on the 2000 are nothing to write home about.
I got this pen after trying out an F nib, which consistently skipped on the left stroke. The B nib will not skip, but writes like a marker: too large for normal writing. This is not like any other B nib I have tried. Some people call it "stubbish" and I agree. But it is stubbish the same way a paint brush is. ;)
Rather than exchanging the pen a second time I just sent it to a well known nibmeister for a regrind to stub.
Many people love the Lamy 2000 B nib so I guess it's right when they say: YMMV.

Couldn't be happier. April 12, 2013
Reviewer: Glenn J from Victoria, BC, Canada  
Where to start... the nib looks brilliant in platinum, and being hooded gives a pseudo-integral nib look.  It is super smooth, although it does make quite a bit of noise.  This is expected, since it is HUGE - there's just a massive lump of iridium on the end, with the effect that it writes beautifully no matter what angle you write at. The nib isn't as stub-like as I expected from other reviews, but it can vary its width a bit if you write really lightly. Nice and wet, good shading, it's lovely. A bit wider than a 1.1 mm Lamy.

The stainless grip feels wonderful.  The 'ears' don't bother me, even though my fingers rest right on them, just not noticeable. The makrolon feels and sounds like fine wood.  I write with it unposted, and it is fine.

I'm lucky enough to have a Pilot Murex. I wanted something that had the same wow factor to hold, but with a better writing experience than the nail-like (but what a nail - more artwork than pen) Pilot. This is perfect - the nicest everyday pen

My desert island pen July 10, 2012
Reviewer: Adam from Hillsborough, NC United States  
The Lamy 2000 is sort of like a Volkswagen with Audi engineering. A simple, sleek, high-performing, pen for the people--an everyday writer that can take knocks and come out like a champ. It looks hefty in pictures, but it’s actually a medium pen and lightweight that is very comfortable to hold. I like the piston-fill mechanism. It’s simple to operate, and the pen holds plent of ink. If you like a narrowish nib section, hold the pen near the nib. If you like a wider grip, slide your hand to the pen’s midsection. The “ears” that hold the cap on the body are tiny and I don’t even notice them. I settled on a broad nib. It’s a wide line, and wet, and the nib is super smooth; the ink just flows so nicely and the wide wet line encourages fluid, pleasurable writing. If I were to choose just one fountain pen, I think this choice would be simple. Lamy 2000.
