First off, this pen is way better in person than any picture I've seen online. I wasn't really a fan of the hooded nib look, and the finish just looked kind of blah. I was excited about the gold nib, and trying out the smoothness that I've seen people rave about. I ordered the pen, and was pleasantly surprised at what I got:
1. The box is nice. It's paper, but still nice. I feel like the design is fitting for the pen.
2. The pen has a nice weight to it, and feels much more solid than the Safari. When full of ink, it's a medium-weight pen. Not nearly as heavy as some other monster pens, and I would say that the weight is perfect.
3. The brushed finish of the Makralon exterior of the pen is fantastic. It honestly almost feels like a brushed stone, as it's very smooth but cool to the touch. If you look close you can actually see the marks of the brushing. I would say this pen is more on the satin side than the completely matte, but it's definitely not shiny. I was not expecting to like the finish so much, but I really have a hard time not touching it. Very unique, and it feels like quality. You really have to see it and hold it in your hands to understand what I'm talking about. The metal section near the nib is also brushed, and feels exactly like a cooler version of the Makralon body. It's very seamless, the tolerances are incredible. You don't feel any ridges or anything. It's very comfortable to grip regardless of if you have a small cramped grip (like mine) or hold your pen higher.
4. The nib is a huge step up from the Safari steel nib. It's wetter than my Safari, but it's so smooth. I feel like I need to use half as much pressure as I did with the Safari, and the pen really glides on Rhodia paper. For this reason alone, I don't think I could go back to my Safari. This is almost enough to sell me on the pen by itself.
5. People talk about a "sweet spot" on the 2000, but I haven't really had issues with that. It writes well in any way that I hold the pen. My Safari was more finnicky about how I held it.
In closing, I wasn't expecting to like this pen. Part of me didn't want to like it. Then I got it, and I completely understand why it's been around for so long and why so many people use it. Aesthetically, it's very nice. From a few steps back it looks like a normal, boring black pen. But when you get close it really has a ton of character, and it feels rugged enough to be a daily writer. I love it.
I consider this a no-brainer if you're a Safari owner looking to get a nicer pen. You won't be disappointed, and you may even find yourself neglecting the rest of your other pens.
The verdict is that with moderate pressure, the Lamy 2000 EF and Lamy Studio F are about the same, however, the 2000 EF is more sensitive to pressure and gets considerable variation in line width. The Lamy 2000 F, however, is pretty much exactly like the Studio F, and I notice a similar near-absence of line width variation. The F nib is smoother writing, and tolerates different hand angles better, so for daily use and notes, I'm using the F. For letters I've started using the EF, because the line is so wonderful.
Extremely happy with my Lamy pens.
