Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen - Makrolon is rated 4.7626 out of 5 by 139.
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 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic feel and incredibly smooth thank you to Brian for sharing his daily carry!!!! it is a beautifully designed pen, my very first lamy!!! (I don't really fancy their design, but that's a personal preference) very interesting hooded nib, and was just intrigued by that. the feel of the pen is an unexpectedly new tactile experience. I don't know how to describe it except that you should hold one yourself! the writing? WELL!! I have an EF nib, and it writes BEAUTIFULLY SMOOTH! i have noodler's black eel in it. it's a pen I want to write write write with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent pen This is my third Lamy 2000, the first twos are from Amazon with little cheaper price but they all came with various issues. This one is a perfect pen. The nib has little spring. The line width of F nib is similar to the lines from F nibs of Parker and Montblanc. Ink flow is wet but not too wet. Writing is very smooth and does not have a single broken line. The pen won't dry out even uncapped for a long time. This pen is very suitable for in class note taking and it is a modern upgrade of Parker 51.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Understated Elegance This was my first "big" FP purchase, and I couldn't be more pleased. The Lamy 2000 is understated with the cap on, but uncapped it is a sleek work of art. It's very solid and the makrolon is classy and wonderful to the touch. Long writing sessions are no problem for the Lamy 2000. It is stocky, but not huge. Lamy's attention to detail cannot be overstated. The EF nib is perfect for me. Fine, but still with decent shading. Just a hair thicker than the steel EF. I cannot recommend this pen enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pen, good weight! This was one of my first purchases from Goulet Pens. The Makrolon Lamy 2000 feels sturdy in my hand and looks well made. I purchased the broad nib which definitely lays down a wide line of ink.One consideration is that it does require that I hold it so that the nib is in the proper position to write without skipping but once I got adjusted to that, it's great!. I have used Noodlers El Lawrence in it since I bought it and really like the way it writes. The 2000 cleans up easily.. I do notice that when I am carrying it around that I end up with a thin line of ink about 1/2 inch up from the tip but it wipes off readily and doesn't bother me. I would recommend purchasing a medium nib unless you prefer a very broad ink line. I have no regrets with this purchase and have even considered buying another one with a finer nib because it feels so good in my hand.
