The Beautiful Lamy 2000 Blue Bauhaus Limited Edition, And Why You Are Lucky Not to Have One

Lamy 2000 Blue Bauhaus Set

I felt funny posting about the new Lamy 2000 Blue Bauhaus Limited Edition set, because people in the US seemed kind of ticked off by it. So I decided, “Not wading into that firestorm, thank you.”

Sensible. Except here we are. But it’s not new any more. Also, being sensible is not my thing. Mostly, I just longed to say, “Blue Bauhaus? More like Blauhaus, am I right?”

But do not worry if you don’t have one. This is service journalism. With a nod to Marc Antony in Shakespeare’sΒ Julius Caesar,Β I post about the Lamy 2000 Blue Bauhaus not to praise it, but only to tell everyone who is still mad why they don’t need this pen.

  1. A great write-up as ever! Glad you’re (mostly) enjoying your Blauhaus (I see what you did there).

    I’m one of the lucky ones who got a black Makrolon 2000 that has been pretty much perfect out of the box. The fine nib has been fantastic. I find it to be one of the most pleasurable to use pens I’ve owned (at any price). For me, form follows function perfectly well in the stock models that I don’t feel the need to own the limited edition.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it was cheaper in Canada, and they may even have gotten more pens, based on availability. Good for you! I don’t blame anyone for buying for the lowest price; heck I thought about it once I heard the price differences that were out there. I personally stuck with my US dealers, though, because in general I try to support the pen dealers who support me and the Chicago Pen Show, and give me good service all year. Some brands make it harder to do that, though, and this was one example.

  2. A most enjoyable read, thank you. Once again your colour comparison photos are really useful.
    I also love blue but was not sufficiently tempted to splash out the LE premium on a second Lamy 2000 in a different colour. My L2K now has a stubby broad nib which squeaks a bit but is much more usable than the medium that it had originally. I could be tempted perhaps to try another black one with a Fine or Extra Fine next time. I remember you posted a comparison, a long time ago. I do appreciate the design which has stood the test of time.

    1. I had the broad nib and really liked that one, and agree on the design. Sometimes I meet people who own only one or two fountain pens from years ago, and one is bound to be either the 2000 or the 51.

  3. Good write-up. I can relate to sometimes buying that special pen because it’s the ONE you want. Period. No further discussion needed. (Almost) regardless of price.

    Except that I’ve never had much luck with Lamy pens and nibs. I mean, they’ve been OK. But a nib has to be a lot more than just OK for me to spend that much on it. However, nib experiences are very individual and personal, and it’s hard for me to say exactly why writing with Lamy fountain pens doesn’t do it for me. I just don’t care for them much.

    So I think for now, I’ll stick to my Pelikans and Pilots and Sailors. Lamy’s just not my brand. Good thing there are lots of different brands, so we can each get what we like. πŸ™‚

  4. I, for one, am pleased I don’t have one. πŸ™‚ Mainly because I’m not a fan of EF nibs. Yes the blue colour is lovely, but at that price, and at my age, I can live without it with no regrets. πŸ™‚
