The LAMY 2000 has been writing design history since 1966. As a timeless classic it is still one of the most modern writing instruments today.

Designer: Gerd A. Müller

Function alone determines form. With this design principle Lamy has won the hearts of many design enthusiasts throughout the world. And this all started with the LAMY 2000. When it made its first appearance in the shop windows in 1966, it was the first writing instrument of the modern era which did not seek to be a status symbol but simply an honest, high-precision tool for writing by hand. Made of modern materials; stainless steel and Macrolon.

The Lamy 2000 is available with a 14k gold rhodium-plated nib in 8 widths: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, Double Broad, Oblique Medium, Oblique Broad, and Oblique Double Broad.

    As far as design, what can I add? It’s a classic, and still looks fresh and modern, over 50 years after its initial release. It definitely deserves its place in the NYMoMA.

    The pen is comfortable, and more than reasonably priced for what you get. I ordered the medium nib with minimal modifications. I asked Daniel to make the medium wet enough to allow inks to shade (that’s a main reason I use fountain pens!), while (since it is an every-day carry) not gushing. The nib was tuned to perfection. I love this pen.

    The service and support is excellent. I’ll always check this site first now for my fountain pen purchases.

    Everything about the Lamy 2000 that has to be said has already been said. And I can only add that all the reviewers (Youtube etc.) are right – it really is a fantastic pen!

    But the best part of this pen for me is the nib, perfectly ground and tuned by Dan Smith. I asked him to do a fine architect grind, with medium smoothness and medium flow, and it turned out just perfect. I cannot even begin to explain how I love writing with this pen…

    As always, Dan’s service is exeptional – I am a customer for life!!! Thanks Dan!

    This pen is absolutely amazing. It writes incredibly smooth and fits nicely in the hand. I like a pen with a bit of weight to it, and this pen delivers without making my wrist hurt. I asked Dan Smith to tune and smooth the nib for me and he did a wonderful job. This pen quickly became my favorite!

    Amazing pen! I asked for a Cursive Italic grind on a Medium nib, and it writes like a dream. Extremely quick service and excellent packaging. Will buy from again!

    The treatment was good, I asked for a modification in the nib BB to stub and the result is good is an incredibly smooth and juicy nib that slides smoothly.
    The design is quite elegant and the grip is comfortable.
    I hope in the future to buy more fountain pens here.

    This pen was never in my radar because of how stubby it looked in photographs, but fortunately we had a small pen night at a local stationery store, where I finally got to hold and try one in person. The body felt robust and compared to most of my pens has a good weight to it, which I enjoyed. The seamless minimalist approach to the design also won me over. The separation between the piston knob and the body is practically impossible to distinguish unless you’re actively looking for it. The ease of use with the snap cap makes it a good everyday pen. Being a semi hooded nib, this it can stay uncapped for quite a while, and it allows me to grip the pen where I normally would enjoy gripping a pen.

    Unfortunately the pen body is all I enjoyed from it. The stock lamy 2k nibs didn’t really interest me and felt finicky at best, and the extra fine was definitely not fine enough for what I use my pens for usually, which is illustration. (But this one is going to be for writing down thoughts)

    Fortunately enough nibs can be ground and tuned to your liking! So my research started, and I heard a lot of great things about Dan. I wanted a new pen, and I wanted a custom nib. The Lamy 2k felt like a good option for a note jotting, thought writing pen, and so far it has been.

    My dad used to do some drafting so my handwriting took after his; blockprint in all caps. I did some research online to see what nib grinds would complement my hand writing. An Architect grind is what my research led me too. It gave block prints a little bit more character. But I had to make sure I get it right, so with my lamy al-star, I bought a few stubs and wrote with it sideways where the thicker stroke is going horizontal. It felt like a good match, I wrote everyday with the stub pretending it’s an architect and I finally gave in and got a lamy 2000 with the architect. I also asked Dan if he could tune the reverse so I can still do some small sketches if it’s the only pen i have on me at the time.

    It took a while to get to me, Canada post labour strikes, and I happened to order on dan’s busier week, but the wait was definitely worth it. It’s exactly what I asked for, and I’m a happy customer. Thank you Dan for the Lamy2k! If I ever need to replace one of my pens I know where I’m going!

    I asked for a medium nib to be ground to a 0.7mm cursive italic and the nib was ground really well, thanks Dan! Nib was also tuned perfectly to be on the wetter side per my request. My only issue was that my Lamy 2000 came with a scratch below the ink window, which means the pen might have been a return. Anyhow, it’s not too noticeable and I’m not too bothered.
