Understated elegance, fine nib has some flex April 19, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from River Forest, IL United States  
After reading a lot of things on the web about the Lamy 2000, you start to wonder about the nib.  I chose a fine point, but worried that it may be too wide, as European points tend to run wider than what I prefer.  First, Goulet pens actually checks the pen before shipping it to you, so you won't end up with a dud.  Second, fine really is fine.  Mine was between a Parker F and EF.  The nib profile has a bit of a chisel to it, so there is a slight italic quality to the writing.  Also a surprise - the 14K nib is springy.  You can get a decent amount of line width variation.  It's not a wet noodle flex nib, but there is a bit of flex.  The ink feed is able to support even the widest line width at speed.
The rest of the pen is beautiful understated elegance.  It is businesslike and unpretentious.  No bling or gaudy show.  Everything works with silken ease:  the cap clicks on smoothly and precisely.  The filling system is also a pleasure to use.  This pen is now a daily user.

Best Pen Ever April 18, 2014
Reviewer: DE Dupuis from Keene, NH  
Long sought after birthday present from wife.
Writes like a dream - like every fountain pen should - on great paper and crappy paper.
Looks awesome.  Feels great.
Matched with Baystate Blue.
Pen & ink both world class & perfect together.
I've run through dozens of FPs over 30 yrs, Pelican, Parker, Waterman, Montblanc, Pilot, Cross - probably others I can't remember - none are even remotely close to this Lamy 2000.
Also feels sturdy enough to help fend off borders in a pinch.
Buy this pen or feel silly forever!

Believe it April 10, 2014
Reviewer: Michael from Broomfield, CO United States  
All of it.  There is a reason this pen has not changed since before many of you were born.  It is indeed that good.  The nib is springy, slightly stubbish, and has a decent medium wet flow.  All of which gives your words some much deserved character.  Pen balance is excellent and the weight means it's going to be good for writing long into the night.  

Make sure you buy from a great seller like Goulet so they can test it for you.

Sleek, Trendy, and oh so Light! March 14, 2014
Reviewer: Kimberly Rock-Shelton from Latonia, KY United States  
I have coveted a Lamy 2000 for many, many years.  It is not a Ferrari, but it is an RX-8.  I got the Makrolon version, not the stainless steel version.  I also got a fine nib.  The Makrolon body is light in the hand, but the weight of the nib is substantial enough to put ink to paper without fatigue.  To keep the weight of the pen to a minimum, this fountain pen is a piston fill only.  It took me a couple of tries to get the hang of it for maximum fill.  The ink level indicator is integrated as a design element instead of a purely utilitarian feature.  The nib is flexible without being wobbly.  The ink flow is smooth and even.  I love, love, love this pen.  It was definitely worth the wait.

It's won awards for a reason February 26, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Oak Grove, OR United States  
The Lamy 2000 is a spectacular writing instrument. The material warms nicely in your hand and the nib is exceptionally smooth provided you write at the correct angle.

Everything about this pen is well designed. I was amazed that I couldn't even see the piston knob! It's so well integrated.
