The Lamy 2000 fountain pen is the company's flagship pen, made of a combination of black fiberglass and brushed stainless steel known as Makrolon. It is piston filled and therefore can only be used with bottled ink and not with ink cartridges. The piston does have a large ink capacity, allowing you many pages of writing pleasure. The Lamy 2000 is so revered that it is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art and has won countless design awards. The body of the pen has 4 small ink windows, which allow the user to see how much ink remains in the pen. The nib is a 14 carat gold, platinum plated nib and available in Extra Fine, Fine, and Medium.
What a comfortable pen and a smooth writer. Love this pen. Love the quick shipping by Anderson Pens.

Writes smoothly. Ink flow is good. No issues. Like the feel of the pen, especially the material.

Great design, pretty good writing experience
The Lamy 2000 has a really great design; it is sleek and stylish. The pen has a nice weight to it and the piston mechanism is pretty smooth. I had Brian test the nib for me and it writes well without the sweet spot being too small. I did end up with a squeaky nib but perhaps I can mitigate that with proper ink choice or have a nibmeister take care of it. Great pen!

Believe the positive reviews.
I was able to stop in and personally try out a couple of different 2000s myself and I decided on the extra fine nib. Once I was able to ink it up myself (instead of just dipping it at the store), I was blown away.
It writes incredibly smoothly, light (and well balanced whether posted or not), and it has great and consistent ink flow. This pen is just a joy to write with.
The closest thing I would have to a complaint is that its grip section feels like it could get slippery, especially if you are a tight-gripper or get sweaty hands at all. The taper and smoothness of the grip section could be trouble, but it's far from unmanageable so far. If nothing else, a slightly higher grip above the metal portion would solve the problem entirely. Since this is a hypothetical problem for me, I'm not going to knock it.
