A legendary pen still in production, the stainless steel Lamy 2000 is a handsome pen that remains as dependable as when it was first produced in 1966. The recessed platinum-coated 14k gold nib is very smooth and permits very little ink evaporation compared with larger open-nibbed pens. Using a piston filler, this pen fills directly from an inkwell. Made from brushed stainless steel, it wider and a heavier than many fountain pens, which permits for an easier grip. The weight allows for smoother momentum as you write.
