Amazing Pen July 22, 2014
Reviewer: Joshua B from Kentucky, United States  
This was my first $100+ pen, as well as my second broad nibbed pen, so I was a little worried when I bought it. Add that to the horror stories of quality control issues and a nearly impossible to find sweet spot, and I spent weeks debating whether I should buy the pen or not. Once I inked it up and gave it a try, all of my worries were gone. If you're looking for a wet, really broad nib, then this is it. It took a few minutes to find the sweet spot, and I have to be careful about rotating the pen as I write, but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it might be. The pen is really well balanced, and even though it's a little bigger than some of my other pens, the weight is nice. You know it's there, but it's not heavy. The pen was inspected by the Goulet team, and it wrote great straight from the box, no adjustments needed. I definitely recommend this pen to anyone considering it.

Lamy 2000 July 12, 2014
Reviewer: Robert W Lehmenkuler from Derry, NH United States  
Great pen, superb customer service, and a fair price. What more can one ask for.

This is a classic fountain pen. It writes first time every time. Ink capacity is massive. One filling took me through a 2.5 day seminar. My notebook was used continuously and the pen still has lots of ink left inside it.

This classy pen was designed for constant use. It is not flashy. It is a workhorse.

If lost, I'd buy another without any hesitation.

Great but really, really broad!!! June 9, 2014
Reviewer: J. Anthony from Canada  
I'll say what others have said before me - the broad nib on the Lamy 2000 is exceedingly broad.  I'm used to using Pelikan broad (on both a M200 & M800) and they're medium nibs compared to the breadth of the Lamy 2000.  

That being said, the really great thing about this pen is the degree of quality control from Goulet Pens - there are a lot of people who buy the 2000 who complain about flow issues.  Mine is a good wet pen and it lays down a lot of ink.  It was checked before leaving the store and there's certainly nothing to complain about on that front.

As an aside, I plan to have the broad nib reground to a cursive italic so, for that purpose, the broadness of the nib is ideal.

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.
