Do you know where can I find this new edition? Most of online stores still sell old stocks.

Thanks.

If I am very interested whether this is genuine, and there is more detailed information, please teach it.

Hi,

My name is Carlos Javier Contreras and I am the editor of a non-profit fountain pen blog in Spanish. I have received a lot of inquiries about these new Lamy 2000s. Sadly, I only own an old model. Is it possible for me to use your photos of the new vs old Lamy 2000 for an entry in my blog? Of course, I would give you proper attribution and proper linking to your original blog entry in English.

Besides that, thanks for the entry. I’m having the leaking issue that probably prompted the described re-design.

Regards,

Carlos Javier Contreras.

hi Carlos Contreras, i'm glad that the photos are useful for your blog. please use them on your blog.

btw, one of my old version has just broken...

Carlos Contreras said...

Thanks a lot for the photos kmpn.

Btw, where did your Lamy 2000 break? I like mine so much that I would inmediatelly buy another one, but it seems that those pens break more frequently than other models.

Regards,

Carlos Javier.

it breaks at the section near the "ears".

VERY interesting! Any pics of the piston in the new one, compared to the old one?

Have they changed the piston or have they finally decided to do it right on the first try and lube it correctly before leaving their plant?

kmpn said...

they should have changed the material in the piston construction.
