The Lamy 2000 is quintessentially Bauhaus. Designed by Gerd A. Müller in 1966, the pen has remained relevant and functional ever since. Its beautifully simplistic barrel is etched with hairlines that emulate brushed metalwork. The fountain pen's integrated piston-filler mechanism allows you to draw a large volume of ink into the reserve. Clean uninterrupted lines create the iconic 20th century German look.
This pen has accompanied me to every single one of my classes this year. From writing mathematical proofs to jotting down notes in discussion, this Lamy is a smooth writer. Eschewing the laptop in note-taking has helped me commit more knowledge to memory since the physical action of writing forces me to focus on the words I am putting onto the page. Tapping on the keyboard seems too easy at this point and possibly even rushed.
Often lauded by the fountain pen community as a staple, the gold-nibbed Lamy 2000 is a fantastic intermediate pen to have in your collection. Its stealthy aesthetic keeps it discreet, so only you enjoy its beautiful writing experience. Every time you use this pen, you are partaking in a history-laden tradition of writing with the Lamy 2000.
