The Lamy 2000 flagship fountain pen was first introduced in 1966. The pen is made of a combination of fiberglass and brushed stainless steel known as Makrolon. It is piston filled and as such can only be used with an ink bottle (Lamy T 52) and not with ink cartridges. The piston does have a large capacity.
The Lamy 2000 is so revered that it is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art and has won countless design awards.
Nib: 14K gold, platinum coated nib.
Important Note about the Nib:
The Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen nib is less rounded at the tip than most other fountain pens and therefor a little more sensitive. "Scratchiness" of the Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen is in general related to the increase of pressure some writers tend to use in an attempt to compensate for over-rotation. It is not a Quality Control issue rather a matter of finding the "Sweet Spot" on the angle of rotation. If you rotate it a little too much to the right, the nib will skip or "hard start".
Available Nib Grades: Extra Fine, Fine or Medium
