LAMY 2000 – The modern classic.
The LAMY 2000 has been writing design history since 1966. As a timeless classic it is still one of the most modern writing instruments today.
Function alone determines form. With this design principle Lamy has won the hearts of many design enthusiasts throughout the world. And this all started with the LAMY 2000.
When it made its first appearance in the shop windows in 1966, it was the first writing instrument of the modern era which did not seek to be a status symbol but simply an honest, high-precision tool for writing by hand. Made of modern materials; stainless steel and Macrolon.
The LAMY 2000 is made of fibreglass polycarbonate and high-quality brushed stainless steel. Massive, spring-loaded stainless steel clip.
Lamy now also presents the LAMY 2000 as a high-quality, all-metal stainless steel series with a velvety brushed stainless steel finish which provides a warm and pleasant feel.

Available Writing Systems
The LAMY 2000 is available as ballpoint pen, mechanical pencil, multi-colour ballpoint pen, fountain pen and rollerball pen.
Fountain pens support individual handwriting more than any other writing instrument. Whether you are seeking to develop good handwriting or want to sign letters and contracts in style, or simply prefer the individual character of handwritten news to the anonymity of e-mails.
Pencils are the most popular, uncomplicated writing tools: Perfect for making notes, sketching, and dictation. And if something should go wrong, one can simply erase it.
Basically, a Lamy mechanical pencil can be operated as easily as a ballpoint pen. Just press until the lead point appears – and simply write. Or sketch. Or draw. If the lead refill is used up, just press once more – and then you're ready to go again.
Almost all Lamy mechanical pencils have an eraser tip at the top end of the body, just under the removable push button. For easy and chemical-free corrections.
As a long-lasting, reliable writing system, it is one of the most important products of our daily lives.
On the side: in compliance with ISO 12757, Lamy ballpoint pens refills do not contain any toxic chemicals and are therefore environmentally compatible. In addition, they are waterproof, which is important in particular for the signing of contracts and when displaying receipts and copies.
Lamy rollerballs are a good alternative to fountain pens or ballpoint pens. Combine the best of the two classic categories: Our rollerball pens are as easy to operate as ballpoint pens. And they have a similarly beautiful typeface to the fountain pen and offer a very high level of writing comfort.
All Lamy fountain pen nibs are equipped with a high-quality iridium ball.
The choice of the nib grade is dependent on the personal handwriting and the writing position. For left-handers there are special LH nibs available which are minimally bevelled as the fountain pen is not pulled by left-handers but rather pushed.
Rounded nibs are common favourites. All-round nibs with a completely rounded tip. Because of the roundness no tilting is possible when writing. This is the bestselling nib grade.
For a slanted position: One side of the nib is shortened / bevelled. Thus the ink flow is constant even with an angled writing position.
By the way, the "O" stands for oblique.That's the French term for tapered.
With these nibs, the fountain pen must be held upright, without tilting or turning, for the ink flow to be steady. The iridium ball has a straight cut.
