Description

In 1966, the 2000 was designed for Lamy by Gerd A. Müller (who may be most famous for his Braun electric shaver design), and reflected a revived postwar Bauhaus school centered in Ulm, Germany. This limited edition of Titanium was produced in 2009.

The 2000’s barrel and cap are made from a lightweight, durable fiberglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin from Bayer known as Makrolon. They have a brushed texture that resists fingerprints and grime, as well as providing a secure grip. The texture also helps to make the seams virtually invisible where the filler knob and the point unit attach to the barrel. The material also ages relatively gracefully.

Lamy is an independent family-owned enterprise which was established in 1930 by , former Parker employee, C. Josef Lamy in Heidelberg. The Lamy brand has existed since 1952 and proved its innovative prowess in the very first year with the completely novel Lamy 27 fountain pen series. And in 1966 the distinctive style of Lamy Design was born with the Lamy 2000.

    Un très beau stylo, épuré, un poids idéal (je trouve les versions non métalliques un peu trop légères).
    Une plume parfaite !

    Time-honored classic minimalist design. The gold nib writes smoothly on paper. The weight is appropriate. Definitely, it should be one of the pens that you carry around. I’m satisfied with it and the shipping service of this firm. Strong recommended for pen lovers!

    Hi,
    I like a lot the LAMY 2000 Steel edition (medium nib), the feeling is very soft when you write on a quality paper (Rhodia, Clairfontaine…)
    The pen is well balanced in the hand and the finish brushed of the metal body is perfect for a good grip.
    One of my favourite pen for everyday use 🙂
    Cheers,
    Olivier

    Het is ontzettend fijn om met deze pen te schrijven, de pen vloeit over het papier, en door het extra gewicht van de stalen versie voelt hij zwaar en stabiel aan in de hand.

    Aanrader!

    Thé Lamy 2000 stainless steel is a dream to write with! It writes very smoothly, and the broad nib is simply superb! I love it! It really is a winner!

    This a classic. M nib delivers a good amount of ink (Pelikan 4001 royal blue), the making is immaculate and it feels heavy and cool. You love or hate the design, if you love it, go for the steel one 🙂

    Right handed with large hands — using the Lamy 2000 Steel with O2B nib: filled it with ink and started writing — soooo smooth, the nib glides on the page. Weight feels great. Very wet. So much so, that I compared to MB 149 O3B nib and noticed that the Lamy is broader on paper, almost marker like. The MB has greater line variation because of the thinner strokes it can achieve. Even tested on 260g paper. If I had to select one, I’d choose the O3B nib because the written word has greater variation. That said, the Lamy O2B that I have has a thicker (but not wider) nib endpoint than the 149 explaining its broadness so not sure if this is standard on all O2B nibs. Prefer the weight, appearance and design of the Lamy. Very different experience to the 149 because of the weight which gives it a sense of solidity. Finally, there is residual ink that is left on the steel sheath overhanging the nib after inking but I’m sure there are creative ways to remove the ink completely.

    I recently bought the Lamy 2000 Stainless Steel after trying it out a few times and I have no regrets!

    The pen looks and feels amazing, the nib (medium) is smooth as butter, but don’t expect to do much line variation with this gold nib as it is partly covered by the pen. The pen is built like a tank and I highly doubt you can break it accidentally considering it’s purely made out of stainless steel. This adds to the weight of the pen so if you prefer light pens, take a look at the regular Lamy 2000 as this may be more to your liking.

    This pen is well worth the price as this pen is build to last and I can say without a doubt that due to this pen’s build quality, will last you a lifetime.

    It has become my daily driver (pen that I use daily) and highly recommend it.

    Lamy 2000 is a must have pen for every Fountain pen lover. It is lovely daily writer and offers seamless writing. This steel option is beautiful and looks very premium. As always buying from appelboom is always advantageous. So go ahead and buy.

    I’ve owned MB 146, Custom 823, Diplomat Aero, and some vintage ones, and the Lamy 2000 stainless steel is my favorite, followed by the 823. It’s heavy but in a reassuring way, has a FANTASTIC nib, doesn’t slip, smooth piston, and I do not experience the narrow Lamy sweet spot when writing. An absolute stunner.

    I ordered the Lamy 2000 Stainless Steel model in an Oblique Broad configuration and it is an absolute joy to write with. The pen has a perfect weight to it, and is well-balanced. It is not too heavy at all, and has become one of my daily writers. Also, it is quite easy to clean, which is a welcomed plus. Many thanks to Jost, who will always be my only choice when it comes to purchasing fountain pens! I love Appelboom!

    I have the Stainless Steel version. It is as no-nonsense a pen can get; understated design, smooth, consistent nib and dependable.

    Some people may be alarmed by the substantial premium over the Makrolon version, but the steel version feels much more substantial in the hand, and is overall better built in my subjective opinion.

    The nib is an extremely wet, consistent writer in my pen. Line variation is not really possible, though there is difference between cross and down strokes when it comes to width, especially for the B nib.

    The steel version is a very heavy pen. It weighs close to twice as much as the Makrolon version, and if you write with the cap posted, it will be a very heavy pen to deal with. However, the weight remains balanced and doesn’t really bother me even when posted.

    Do bear in mind the steel finish is prone to scuffing/scratching over time, and the pen is not meant to be dismantled for maintenance either.
