If you could only have one pen... April 18, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pasig City, Philippines  
I really recommend this one.

The pen has an amazing ink capacity and a reliable, if somewhat unimaginative, piston filling system. The pen has a sleek and simple aesthetic that can fit into any setting and not attract too much attention, which can be either a good thing or a bad thing depending on your tastes.

The workmanship is stellar, leaving little to no trace of the manufacturing process; you can just barely see the line that separates the piston knob from the barrel, which maintains the illusion of streamlining, and it's well-nigh impossible to see any transition between the ink view window and the barrel.

There are some QC issues, but Lamy is generally excellent with customer support. The 14k nib writes like butter on a skillet (I got an M nib), and the perfect balance of the pen ensures comfort even during prolonged writing sessions.

All in all, it's a beautiful pen that's all business. What little impact it has in looks, it more than makes up for in performance.

Wonderful everyday pen March 13, 2014
Reviewer: Tom Sweet from Tampa, FL United States  
Goulet Pens is great to deal with and a fast shipper. This pen sits in my pocket very often as it is a quick and reliable pen for signing receipts or taking a quick note. The medium nib is perfect for me for everyday uses. Mine writes fairly wet with Noodler's Eel Black and that is what I prefer in a fountain pen. The nib feels much smoother than any other Lamy since it is gold and not steel.

Love this pen! March 11, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from United States  
This is a wonderful pen! The nib is super smooth. I did have a bit of issues with the ink I first put into it, as it seemed to be a bit dry, but I switched up the ink with one that has a bit more flow, and now it is perfect! I've seen others say that this pen needs a bit of breaking in, and maybe that's true, but I can't speak highly enough of it. I will say, though, that it does have a small sweet spot that takes a bit of getting used to.

What Can I Say That Hasn't Been Said? February 14, 2014
Reviewer: Joshua from CHICAGO, IL United States  
The Lamy 2000 is legendary - or so everyone says. I figured I had to check it out for myself, and I'm so glad that I did! I have it in a M and it's by far the smoothest nib I own. It's a broad M, which is especially apparent when measured against Japanese pens (Sailor ProGear Realo M).

While it may prove slightly difficult for those with small writing, I think it's noteworthy that it is a very soft nib. This means that if you are taking notes quickly without a lot of pressure, you will get a thinner line, and you'll see a thicker line when applying some pressure. That feature isn't for "flex" writing, per se, but it does lend the pen a good amount of versatility.

Lastly, it is super smooth with nearly zero feedback. I happen to love it, and can only imagine how wet and smooth it writes in a B width (which I really can't use on account of my handwriting). I find myself looking for the wet, smooth line of a B, but with the width of an M, and the Lamy 2000 really nails it.

handsome, comfortable writer. Mechanically refined December 21, 2013
Reviewer: Bernie Mitchell from Abington, PA United States  
Limited use so far and this is the most pricey pen I now own.  Substantial in hand.  Expressive nib that seems to have a sweet spot.  I'd say the line is more fine than medium.  No skipping.  The movement of the filling mechanism and on-off action of cap are satisfyingly refined.  No sloppy fits.  No forcing or exertion of any kind is required.  I think I'm going to like this pen.
