This review is from: Lamy 2000 Fountain Pen Black Fine (L01F) (Office Product)
I'm an avid fountain pen user with an assortment of pens from a couple of dollars up to the $500 range. I purchased the Lamy 2000 because of it's amazing, yet understated looks. I'm an English Lit major and take pages upon pages of notes daily with my pens. The ink capacity on the Lamy 2000 allows me to go over a week without refilling. I leave it uncapped for entire class sessions and it never gives me trouble starting. I find the pen extremely comfortable to hold, some users complain about the tabs that the cap clips onto, but I have never found it to be a problem. I'm now on my sixth month of daily use with this pen and I feel it still looks great. I throw it in my pocket, in my backpack, dropped it multiple times but the finish on it still looks beautiful. It has developed a couple of smoother spots (patina) where my fingers usually rest when holding it, which I also think adds to the lovely character of the pen. The filling mechanism is as smooth as the day I purchased it as well. I wish I could find a negative about this pen so I wont seem so biased, but I really can't. I'm sure this pen will get me through the rest of undergrad and through graduate school without missing me a beat. I also purchased the .7mm Lamy 2000 mechanical pencil, which doesn't get nearly as much use, but has been equally flawless.
