I've been an owner of Lamy 2000 fountain pens for more than twenty years, which amount to four of them, which I still own and use every day. I could boldly define or describe them as a timeless statement of understatement. It's like having a piece of German designer art with you at all times. They are elegant, minimalistic, always modern and pure. They are also very pleasant to write. I use Mont Blanc ink in all of the imaginable colors and change colors in them without any problems at all. Now for the down side: these pens are good as for a year, maybe two depending on usage, after which they need maintenance at the factory since they start leaking at mid center where the prongs are that attach the cap to the pen. It must be noted though, that the pen is guaranteed for life by the factory --please read the pamphlet that accompanies any Lamy pen-- and I mean really guaranteed since it applies worldwide. Each of mine are picked up at my office by a Lamy representative, sent to Germany and back where they have been refurbished and renewed at least two times each, after which they return in perfect working condition, again, for one or two years depending on usage, which in my case is really heavy to all of them. I give them four stars because of the leaking (attributed to a faulty gasket that seemingly hardens with time and ink) which I figure should have been sorted out by the factory after all these years since its introduction. I must also say, that I haven't found another pen that pleases me so much. Others may be more reliable, others may write more pleasantly, but none combines all the characteristics of my Lamy 2000s. They're like my Breitling Aerospace titanium watch: timeless, always beautiful to look at, and could never find any other that could match it.

I went through two of these, both purchased on Amazon, and returned both. The pen has great ergonomics, a nice piston filler system, and an ink-view window that is (contrary to some people's opinions) functional and discreet. So why did I reject two of these? They both wrote very jagged horizontal lines - it looked like ink flow was very uneven on cross strokes. And yes, I did thoroughly flush each pen and tried several different inks - and the problem remained.

I know Lamy USA has good customer service, but there is no way I was keeping a pen that needed service upon arrival.

This pen has become by EDC at the office. It has a very understated and professional appearance. It also holds so much ink that I never worry about running out. I emptied the pen to clean it and could notice a weight difference for the lack of ink immediately, something I generally don't notice with fountain pens.

The clip is functional and good looking as well.

The pen is a good writer on various types of paper. Anywhere from high-end smooth paper to general purpose copy paper work well with it. It doesn't lay down enough ink to write very well on laid paper or low-grade yellow and white legal pads -- on these it feels scratchy, and the line is inconsistent. That said, the only things that work well on these types of paper are pencils and BIC sticks while using a ton of pressure.

My only criticisms are the manufacturing residue on the pen straight out of the box and the general difficulty of cleaning the pen. There is a faint white haze on the pen body when it comes out of the box. Cleaning with a soft damp rag or by polishing the pen body with the palms of your hands quickly removes this and gives the pen body a darker appearance.

There is also residue inside the pen in the ink reservoir and in the nib unit, so I recommend cleaning the pen with a pen flush or with mild detergent and water before you first ink it up.

Nib creep is a significant problem with this pen as well. The best temporary solution I've found is to use a soft damp rag to wipe the nib from the base to the tip. Using a dry rag or wiping in the other direction will only make the problem worse.

There is a metal plate on the inside of the cap which the nib appears to rest against or near to when the pen is capped.

This pen clearly reflects the Bauhaus sensibilities of its designer in terms of its simple, yet undeniably elegant design. The main principle of Bauhaus design was "form follows function." The form of a design should be whatever most efficiently achieves its purpose. The problem with my copy of this pen is that, while the form is great, the function is not. On arrival, the nib refused to provide sufficient ink flow. Try as I might, different inks, soap suds to lubricate the feed, I could not get the darned thing to work properly. I ended up sending it back to Lamy for "free" fixing. They fixed the pen perfectly well, but the free repair cost me about $15 in postage there and back.

So things were great until recently when the pen started to leak at the seal between the barrel and the section. This is a common problem and has been present in the pen for more than 50 years. Ironically, the flaw is a result of form taking precedence over function. To achieve the sleek lines of the pen, certain sacrifices in the reliability of the gasket at the join had to be made. It was a peculiar design decision. Most piston fillers anticipate this problem and cast the barrel and section as a single piece.

The pen is now off to Lamy for another "free" repair, and I'm sure it will come back good as new, but I still wish that they would fix a problem that's been known for half a century.
