Pen of the Day: Lamy 2000


Lamy 2000 with fine nib. This pen is the definition of understated excellence for me.  I love everything about it, from its design to its writing performance, but I admit that it’s more of a workhorse than a show horse.  I know a lot of people think it looks dull.  And some don’t find it comfortable. But if I could only have ten pens, this would be one of them.

I really want to try one with an extra-fine nib, though.  Someday.  Maybe.


This is filled with a new-to-me ink from KWZ called Dark Brown.  But Dark Brown looks black, doesn’t it?  And I surely love an ink that has something unexpected like that.  So I’m going to put a few quick thoughts about KWZ Dark Brown in a separate post.

  1. I think I have this pen, but maybe an older version of it. When was this one made?

    I can see why some might call it boring, but there is room for those too. It shouldn’t be all flashy pens. Understated ones are especially nice when you’d rather something that doesn’t scream, ‘this is a fountain pen!’

    1. Yes, there was an earlier version of the 2000. Mine is the current one, as far as I know. It was probably bought after 2009, but I don’t know for sure.
