Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen - Makrolon, Broad is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier. Where to start... the nib looks brilliant in platinum, and being hooded gives a pseudo-integral nib look. It is super smooth, although it does make quite a bit of noise. This is expected, since it is HUGE - there's just a massive lump of iridium on the end, with the effect that it writes beautifully no matter what angle you write at. The nib isn't as stub-like as I expected from other reviews, but it can vary its width a bit if you write really lightly. Nice and wet, good shading, it's lovely. A bit wider than a 1.1 mm Lamy. The stainless grip feels wonderful. The 'ears' don't bother me, even though my fingers rest right on them, just not noticeable. The makrolon feels and sounds like fine wood. I write with it unposted, and it is fine. I'm lucky enough to have a Pilot Murex. I wanted something that had the same wow factor to hold, but with a better writing experience than the nail-like (but what a nail - more artwork than pen) Pilot. This is perfect - the nicest everyday pen

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a nice B nib 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but really, really broad!!! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The sweetest broad of them all On Fountain Pen Network, it seems to me everyone suggests buying a Parker 51, a Pelikan M200, a Namiki Vanishing Point, a Lamy 2000, and nowadays a TWSBI. For me, the 2000 was the last of those pens I purchased. I am sorry it took me so long. The Lamy 2000 is my second favorite pen to the Bexley Corona. The Corona wins out due to design and sizing considerations, but my Lamy has a better nib even though the famed Richard Binder tuned my Bexley. What makes this pen with the broad nib so stellar is its stubbish quality. I also love that it runs broader than most other broads (but not quite to double broad). This pen is the pen that makes my signature look the way I imagine it in my head. My favorite ink to pair with this pen is Lamy Majestic Blue. The wetness of the nib and the broad size allow the red sheen the ink is capable of to really shine. I currently have the pen filled with Goulet's own Purple Heart, and it also works well in the pen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Broad Nib 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My desert island pen The Lamy 2000 is sort of like a Volkswagen with Audi engineering. A simple, sleek, high-performing, pen for the people--an everyday writer that can take knocks and come out like a champ. It looks hefty in pictures, but it?s actually a medium pen and lightweight that is very comfortable to hold. I like the piston-fill mechanism. It?s simple to operate, and the pen holds plent of ink. If you like a narrowish nib section, hold the pen near the nib. If you like a wider grip, slide your hand to the pen?s midsection. The ?ears? that hold the cap on the body are tiny and I don?t even notice them. I settled on a broad nib. It?s a wide line, and wet, and the nib is super smooth; the ink just flows so nicely and the wide wet line encourages fluid, pleasurable writing. If I were to choose just one fountain pen, I think this choice would be simple. Lamy 2000.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lamy 2000 The perfect 'everyday' pen, and excellent quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lamy 2000 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.
