Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen - Makrolon is rated 4.777 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great. I dithered about getting this pen for a decade, and finally pulled the trigger last month. I'm glad I did. The pen is very comfortable (I hold it just behind the nubs that hold the cap on), even for long (an hour or more) writing sessions, and I haven't had any trouble with a small sweet spot on my EF nib. The cap posts more securely than my other daily writers. I'm a fan of the minimal branding and the brushed feel of the makrolon. I can see why Lamy's kept this pen in production for almost 50 years. If you're worried about Lamy's QC, ask the folks at Goulet to test the pen before they ship. (Thanks, Drew!) You'll get a fine workhorse of a pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing every day pen I bought this pen three months ago as a first gold nibbed writer. I honestly wasn't ready for the smoothness of the nib, when I first touched pen to paper it almost flew off. I know that there have been many people unhappy with the nib on the 2000 due to bad QC from Lamy but I had to take the chance and boy was I happy I did. The feel of the pen is almost perfect for me, I write uncapped all the time but I would suspect its a bit unbalanced if you would write capped. Uncapped the balance is really good. The hooded nib allows the nib to not dry up to fast and also gives a cool modern look. Overall great looking and feeling pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Lamy 2000 - An awesome writer I bought this pen a few weeks ago, and was really excited when it finally arrived in the mail. I simply adore the minimalist design and the overall elegance and simplicity of this fountain pen. But would it also be a good writer? I inked it up with a matching ink - Pelikan Edelstein Tanzanite, a really good-looking blue-black. Writing was a pleasure! Very smooth, no skipping or scratching, just perfect (and this with an F-nib). The best Christmas present ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My thoughts on my first gold nib pen. I was hesitant on the QC issues I've heard about this model pen from Lamy. I believe this would hold truer before, but I think Lamy has it more under control now. So I opted for the Fine and it writes very wet w/ my Take-Sumi Iroshizuku Ink. It writes a bit broader than the sizes most other pens are, especially Japanese nibs. For me the metal clips that hold the cap in place is not bothersome to me whatsoever only. It feels beautifully in hand and writes very well. This a pen you must have in your collection if you don't already. 10/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific workhorse pen This is probably the ultimate workhorse pen, I think. The makrolon body is slightly warm to the touch, and it makes you just want to take out the pen and have it in your hands for no reason at all. It's a very comfortable pen, and since it very slightly tapers down to the stainless steel section, you can grip it wherever you want. The nib on my 2000 is a fine, and I found out that this one doesn't follow the usual Lamy rule of the nibs running broader than they indicate. Mine runs a little bit thinner than a Pilot Custom 74 M nib. The flow is moderate, and the nib very smooth with a hint of feedback. (Ink used so far is Iroshizuku Shin-Kai) I haven't spent much time with the pen yet, so I don't know how it will perform in the long run, but so far, I totally recommend this pen to everyone thinking about getting a mid-range every-day workhorse pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pen I loved the look and feel of this pen after trying a friend's Lamy 2000. It felt great in the hand and wrote very smoothly. So when my dad wanted to get me a graduation present I told him to buy me the Lamy 2000 from Goulet's. I'm glad he did. I got a medium nib and it's wonderful. My dad asked Goulet's to test the pen out, and it came working perfectly. The nib is smooth and the piston works very well. This is a great workhorse pen that writes as well as pens that cost much more. If you are considering this pen, just get one--you won't regret it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Pen. Very sleek & Super smooth! Before I received the Lamy 2000 I’ve grown to love the Pilot Metropolitans of which I have 2 fine and 3 mediums ( I prefer the medium metro as the fines aren't as smooth ) and thought that nothing can get smoother. That is before the Bae decided to upgrade me to a Lamy 2000 this New Years. The only problem was that the Bae got me a medium Lamy knowing I like the medium metro. As super excited as I was, it’s medium nib, while buttery smooth like no other, is much thicker than the medium Pilot metro and was too thick to be my everyday pen. So the Bae sent it back to get a fine instead. The new fine Lamy 2000 came with a choice of a free bottle of Lamy ink (I chose the turquoise). So I filled up the new fine Lamy 2000 with the Lamy ink but for some reason it felt super scratchy, not even close to the smoothness of my Metropolitans. After a day of using it I decided to contact the guys here at Goulets and was not disappointed. The exchange was quick, and now at long last my Fine Lamy 2000 writes just as smooth as the first medium Lamy 2000 but with the same line width as the medium metro. The Lamy 2000 is a joy to write with. It’s very modern and sleek with its all black and steel look. Within the first few days of using it at college and work I've got multiple complements on how sick and unique the pen looks and friends and coworkers keep asking to see and try it out. It also hold a lot of ink. I filled it up by unscrewing the front nib section from the body and injected the ink using a syringe and it held around 1.75 ml, which is twice as much as the Pilot metros hold. It (finally!!!) writes uber smooth and i cannot tell the difference between the first medium nib and the fine. The Lamy has now been my daily writer for the last 2 weeks and i see myself using it for a LONG time coming. ★★★★★ Will be doing business again!
