Lay's flagship fountain pen is the 2000 made of a combination of black fiberglass and brushed stainless steel known as Maroon. It is piston filled and as such can only be used with an ink bottle and not with ink cartridges. The Limy 2000 is so revered that it is on permanent display at the Museum of Modern Art and has won countless design awards. 14kt gold, platinum-coated extra fine nib.

I also have two Waterman fountain pens (both over $150), which are very smooth writing instruments (just as a reference). But as I also use all 6 Lamy Safari pens, I decided to try the Lamy 2000. It's what I see Apple designing if they did fountain pens, very voguish & functional! Easy to fill, holds lots of ink, and if you hold it up to the light, you can see thru the ink level window how much ink is left in the barrel.
Highly recommended! Writes very smooth. The EF nib is what I expected after reading the other comparison reviews on Amazon to Japanese-style nibs on width. It doesn't skip while writing and just feels good in the hands. I'm left handed and filled it with Take-Sumi Charcoal Black ink which doesn't smear as my left hand moves to the right while writing. Excellent addition for writers!
This should illustrate the value and precision of the LAMY 2000 fountain pen. It is a mature (Legacy) product with a classic style and the best value for an instrument under $300.00. Once you are hooked, there is no turning back! You will not regret making this investment (I did it twice).
My LAMY 2000 rolled off my desk as I was getting my inkbottle out to refill it. I broke the NIB with my negligence at the Achilles! I cannot describe the internal emotional feeling when your chosen "go to" pen warrants repair. Unfortunately, I could not find a replacement NIB for the pen but LAMY stands behind their product and you must send it in for repairs. There is an approximately 3 week's turnaround time and approximately $60 + shipping & handling charge (fair price). I reverted to a LAMY Studio Stainless Steel fountain pen that I own. It was fine but it was not my LAMY 2000. In approximately 1 hour after using the Studio, I signed in on Amazon and ordered another LAMY 2000 XF Fountain Pen (delivery tomorrow).
As for my damaged LAMY, it is a wonderful calligraphy pen now - LOL.
I own several LAMY fountain pens the Safari, Studio, and the Dialog 3 respectively, but seemed to avoid the 2000 for some unknown reason. I am a graduate student pursuing a dual Master's and needed a motivation tool (symbol). I decided to part with $130 and invest in the LAMY 2000. It arrived...(S***) - I could have bought three of these for the price I paid for the LAMY Dialog 3!
The LAMY 2000 is a fantastic utilitarian instrument (daily use). It is made of a combination of fiberglass and brushed stainless steel known as Makrolon (Lamy, 2014). It is not metal like the Studio or Dialog 3 but sturdy and not plastic feeling like the Safari (plastic). The 2000 is functional where the Dialog 3 is pretty and only good for signatures and the Studio is great as well and similarly priced in price. The real value is how the 2000 holds ink and why everyone says it lasts a week or longer.
"Polycarbonates (PC), known by the trademarked names Lexan, Makrolon, Makroclear, arcoPlus® and others, are a particular group of thermoplastic polymers. They are easily worked, molded, and thermoformed. Because of these properties, polycarbonates find many applications. Polycarbonates do not have a unique resin identification code and are identified as Other, 7. Items made from polycarbonate can contain the precursor monomer bisphenol A (BPA)."

I had bought 2 extra LAMY converters with this purchase (would need to replace them in my other pens anyway). I opened the 2000 and looked to see where to place the converter. What? It did not come with an ink converter. Okay, that is why I ordered 2 converters. Wait, converter does not fit. Where is the manual (for a pen no less)? To my amazement, the whole body of the pen is the ink reservoir and does not require a converter! You twist the butt end of the pen to activate the piston to draw ink into the body, explaining how it lasts a week or more! I could not see the line where the twist mechanism is (quality/craftsmanship) that required me to read the manual. A classic design and legacy product - I clearly understand the reason it is still around.

The Macrolon body has just the right bite to it to stop fingers from sliding off the pen's body, but doesn't feel rough to the touch. The Matte colour is unusual - I've only ever seen shiny pens before, and makes a change in its styling.
The clip is well designed; pressing the very end of the clip at it's attachment point raises the clip from the body of the pen, making it easier to place into a cotton pocket.
The capacity is positively voluminous, covering pages of A4 before giving a hint of running out. This is mostly because the pen doesn't use cartridges or converters, instead it's a piston filler. The piston is operated by turning the end of the pen, and when fully closed, the Macrolon material of the pen's body hides the seam - it really doesn't look like a piston filler! The ink window is a set of four clear windows around the pen's body. This takes some getting used to; you cannot see the entirety of the ink in the pen. With the pen upright, you can either see that the pen has ink or doesn't. Hold the pen on its side and you can make out the ink level in the pen if you hold it up to a light source.
Writing with this (fine nib) pen is a pleasure; I have only ever used medium nibs before because I've found fines to be slightly scratchy. Not this pen though, it's as smooth as silk to write with (iroshizuku "shin-kai" and Lamy crystal grey inks used in the pen) so far.
My one complaint is with the cap at the back of the pen - the one that you have to twist in order to draw ink into the pen. After a few months of use this cap became loose. I contacted Lamy and they responded politely and quickly, asking me to send it back to Stuttgart for a free repair. I have since discovered that problems with this part are a fairly common complaint and it is a great shame because this is absolutely the best writer I have in my collection.
In constant production since 1966 it is the pinnacle of penmanship.
It doesn't look fancy, but it doesn't need too. Every aspect serves a purpose and delivers perfectly.
It wont suit some people, but for most it will be a great experience.
On a side note, it is on permanent display in the Museum of Modern Art in New York
It is the perfect example of how fountain pens evolved. It is the Beatles compared to One Direction.
Paired with a few delightful Pilot Iroshizuku inks, I've just had a blast using it. Everything feels so brilliantly smooth, and the pen itself is a pleasure to hold. Refilling it is as easy as a twist of the top, and it feels like it stores a metric eternity's worth.
Can't recommend enough to any pen enthusiasts out there.
As mentioned in other reviews, mine came in two boxes, a LAMY presentation case and a smaller transit box with the actual pen in it. Assured the pen got to me in one piece but if its a gift you'll want to combine the two before presenting it for maximum effect.
