Same!
Any chance of the next drop including a double broad option? Goulet list them as coming in March!!!
josephk1311
Double broad is INSANE, haha. I couldn't wait any longer and bought the Lamy 2000 in M already.
I bought a BB Black Aluminum Kaweco Liliput from a drop, though, and it's such a thick line. I absolutely love it.
TanvirK175
Thanks for the suggestion, Tanvir! My plan was to get the Lamy 2000 BB reground to a cursive italic. However, after reading your comment, I recalled reading somewhere that having hooded/semi-dooded nibs such as the one on the Lamy 2000 reground is a bit of a challenge compared to a regular nib. Maybe looking at "normal" BB nibs would be the way to go.
Hoping this'll come back within the next couple months. Looking to pick it up :)
can we have more of this drop please?
If anyone has a F or possibly EF let me know if you want to sell, thanks!
brianjking
Does the 2000 come with an EF? LAMY website only lists M or F for it. Would love an EF.

@NathanaelBC I'm not sure what all is offered from Massdrop. However, Lamy 2000's can be purchased from most retailers such as Goulet Pens, Anderson Pens, Jet Pens, and many others in lots of sizes:
* Extra Fine * Fine * Medium * Broad * Double Broad * Oblique Medium * Oblique Broad * Oblique Double Broad
I don't own a Lamy 2000, however, I've tried a friends and also had a chance to try a EF, F, & Medium at the Lamy store in San Francisco a few months ago while on holiday. It does tend to be a bit more broad than the corresponding nib size in a Lamy Safari/Lamy Aion from my experience and from what I've read. I've seen some really great deals for 2000's on /r/pen_swap lately as well as the Instagram account VirtualPenShow (https://www.instagram.com/virtualpenshow/).
If you want something extra customized you can order from a supplier such as nibsmith.com (linked directly below) that can do a custom grind before shipping it to you. Alternatively, nibsmith.com or a multitude of other professionals offer send in service for a range of fees based on their experience/demand/level of work required.

Ordered a fine, got an extra fine. Sheesh. Sticking to the Goulet folks for my fountain pens from now on--price might be higher but at least they're consistent with sending what you purchase...

Yup, so long as it hasn't been inked yet ;) FWIW I already have an EF and it's damn finicky w/ writing angles...
@marcelol If you still have your F Lamy 2k and want to sell let me know!
Wrong nib here too. It is a nice pen but for $100 it's a shame to not get what I ordered. It always amazes me how often businesses screw up the easy stuff.
Like, if you don't think you can commit to making me a burger with no tomato on it, just tell me that and I'll order something else. But if the receipt says "no tomato", and I get home and find tomato on my burger, I'm never coming back because you just wasted half an hour of my time and you aren't the only burger joint in town.
Wrong nib. My first and last purchase from Massdrop, likely. :(
Kanzeon
@Kanzeon Yeah, that's Massdrop for you. If you want to sell let me know what size nib you have.
My father ordered an F and got EF as well. I had ordered an F and then wished I'd ordered an EF, so I told him I'd swap when mine arrived. Surprise, surprise, they sent me the EF too. Are these the only two nibs that seem to have been liberally swapped?? Pretty irritating when you consider that Amazon has them for $115 with free two-day shipping for prime members...

At this point MD has so many people with the wrong nib that they actually COULD probably replace everyone's with the correct one after they all get returned. Of course that would be another two months of waiting.... Eeesh.
aarnoldy
LOL...the pen shell game....Ay Caramba!!
Who knows how many got the wrong nib, I read elsewhere some folks on FB from FPN were discussing this same thing. I'm not on FB, so...I wouldn't know for certain.
Like I told Lyxie...Support has been emailing me, and whatever I'm told I'll share with you good folks.
To folks griping about receiving the wrong nib and getting offended that Massdrop isn't bending over backward for you: this is the tradeoff you accept for being able to buy a $130 pen for $90. Because of the MD purchasing model, which can get us a very good discount, there's a limit to the kinds of service they're able to offer. There was a problem with the order or the supplier or who knows what. It happens, and a refund is certainly adequate; no harm, no foul. If you want fancy customer service, pay more for your stuff. That's where that money goes.

A refund isn't "adequate", not when they didn't even follow their own terms (took money from account BEFORE the end of the drop, for example).
jah1138
Dude...seriously, if you have nothing to help. If you're happy with what you got, then great, congratulations. But don't put down or electronically spit on the situation SEVERAL other people are going through, which affects you NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST.
Dang, this pen actually lives up to the hype! What a lovely and well-made pen! I got the EF. I'd read a lot about LAMY's EF/F/M all being about the same thing, but this really does write a nice EF line, which is what I was hoping for. This is instantly my work pen! And for the price, it can't be beat. When it comes up again, I'm getting a M or B!
I got a fine and ordered an extra fine. If anyone has an extra fine and ordered a fine please let me know if we can work out a trade. I'd rather not pay a nibmeister.
Lyxie
Same here.
This is the kind of support MassDrop has? You've got to be kidding me.....offer me a full refund. No offer to try to sort this out....no nothing....
Guess what.....that is unacceptable.
[Update: Apparently our pens DO NOT have Lamy Warranty Support to have our Nibs replaced even if we wanted to].
------------------------------- Tony V (Massdrop Community Support)Jul 19, 3:23 PM PDT Hi Marcelo, Thank you for contacting Massdrop Community Support! I'm sorry to see that you received the incorrect nib and am happy to help. Since we do not have any inventory in stock to send a replacement, I am only able to offer a full refund. Below is a link to the prepaid shipping label you will need to use to return your item to us: RMA Label
Please include the RMA sheet inside the shipping box with your item. If the RMA sheet is not included, it may cause processing delays or refusal at our warehouse. If you're re-using another shipping box for the return shipment, please make sure to remove or cover old shipping labels or stickers. You must use the prepaid UPS label within 14 days, otherwise it will no longer be valid. Once our warehouse notifies us of your return, a refund will be issued to your original payment method. You should receive a confirmation email once this happens. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Warmest regards, Tony
marcelol
This absolutely pissed me off when I got it. Like... I just waited a month for this pen and you're not gonna try to fix it at all? Crazy! I decided I'm only ordering mystery boxes from massdrop in the future.
And...isn't this supposed to come with a warranty card?
marcelol
I didn't get a warranty card either. :(
I ordered EF (invoice says EF) but sticker label says F. Also the box isn't the fold out box. Makes me wonder if this isnt a new pen. Anyone else have these issues?

Same as you. :(
Lyxie
Whoops! I'm talking to another gentleman here (well, you can see the thread, so you can tell who), maybe we'll be able to swap, maybe MD will come back and try to solve it all.
At this point I kick myself for not having jumped on the Stainless Steel drop when I could've haven't heard anyone having an problem with that drop. Or the Lamy Dialog drop, but that was too rich for my bones at the moment.
Got my pen - with the wrong-size nib. :-(
The packing slip specifies the size that I ordered, so it looks like a mistake in the shipping department.

omg! Where in Maryland? Let's swap! 💕💕
I'm in Rockville!
Woo-hoo!!!!

Very excited for my first Lamy 2K!

I did in fact receive the correct nib (broad).
writerstephen
Good for you, at least some of us did. Enjoy it!😀
A newbie question.
I ordered this pen with an EF nib. I am having second thoughts and wonder if it is possible to change my order to an F nib instead? If so how do I go about it?
NealS
You want to trade? They sent me an F when I ordered an EF. This P_ss_s me off , because MD's form of communication is so shoddy.
My first pen order from MD. Do we know about when we should expect the pens to ship out?
Shawn.D
July 20, according to the description.
Waited too long and missed out on the EF. Loved my EF until I had an accident with the nib!

TL;DR: I enjoy constructive conversations. I relate my experience in the course of offering some unsolicited advice, "if I were in your shoes."
Here's the longer note:
In general, I agree that one should not "just take it" if there's a viable solution to which everyone can agree. In most cases, there is. In some cases, there isn't. If there is truly no recourse, then hopefully we can at least inform our future actions.
Even when one appears to be out of options, creative, box?-who-needs-a-stinkin'-box thinking (with lots of, "Nope, that wouldn't work.") can lead to novel work-arounds and discoveries.
Yes, I'm speaking (or writing) generally, here. Not just regarding this particular issue.
Of course, sometimes it is what it is for whatever reason. But I have no idea where that tipping point is, especially in this particular instance.
Regarding this particular issue, I don't know what would be acceptable to you, but I know what I'd do. To you (and anyone who doesn't mind a bit of my drivel), here's what I would do:
1. Path of least resistance:
Consider keeping the L2K with the fine nib. I know you didn't get what you ordered and there's the principle of the matter, but that takes a lot of energy that might be better spent elsewhere.
In my case, I thought I wanted an EF nib and got one from a drop a few years ago. It wrote okay, but never as well as the reviews would have me believe. Initially, I used the pen precisely as proscribed by Lamy to keep it within the warranty. Then, when filling the pen my hand jerked a little and the nib bent. This was extremely frustrating to me. I worked with Lamy USA and got it fixed under the warranty - for about $25 out of my pocket and not having the pen for 3 weeks.
To cut to the chase, nearly the same thing happened with the new EF nib. This time, Lamy wanted $75 to replace the nib. Nope. Fortunately, a guardian angel (friend) took pity on me and gave me an L2K with a fine nib. I discovered that, for me, the line was very similar to the EF nib, but the sweet spot to get that gloriously smooth writing experience was much larger. When I jerked with filling the pen, the nib was just fine. I love my L2K with the Fine nib. It feels sinfully luxurious every time I use it and it is my go-to pen when I'm writing at home. It also doesn't leave my home.
I still have the L2K with the mangled EF nib. One day, I'll take it to a nibmeister at a show (when I have the $$). The nibmeister will fix it and I'll either keep it, sell it, or PIF as my friend did with me.
2. Take MD's offer:
They offered a refund. You can just accept the refund. Chalk the experience up to some overtired employee who made a mistake when packaging. Stuff happens. Then, buy the pen you want from Amazon or wait for another drop and hope this one works out. It usually does.
3. Go back and forth with your customer support person at MD:
You have established contact with someone at MD. You're not the only one with the problem. Perhaps, in the meantime, someone has returned their L2K with an EF Nib and you can do a swap. Perhaps not. Perhaps if you set your pen aside, you can wait a week and try again. Perhaps not. Of course, their might be a time limit for returns. Email with your contact and see what makes the most sense. I have no idea how MD handles these things right now, so I could be talking out my ....
4. Try something I haven't thought of.
Personally, I'd take option 1 (obviously). If you use it and don't like it, you can sell it (gently) used for nearly what you paid (minus postage). If you like the pen but still don't like the nib, the EF might not have been fine enough for you, anyway. Take (at a pen show) or send (through post) the pen to a nibmeister. They can take a Fine nib and make it extra, extra fine if you really want that. Of course, that'll cost around $50 judging from most online pricing.
If you don't like the spring clip, but the pen isn't broken, then just send it for a refund and look for a different pen.
BTW, when I got my EF L2K the first time, I never got a warranty card, but I got an accordion pamphlet that had the warranty info in it (as well as filling instructions). In the end, I followed the warranty instructions from their website. But no, never a normal "warranty" card.
One more time,
I hope that helps.
Best of luck whatever you decide to do.
Cheers.
GonzoTGreat
Now there's, some sage speech, Gonzo, thank you. I think what most of us here are is...wanting to be heard about our circumstance. If the orders were filled incorrectly due to some overworked soul, well there's something all of us can relate to (or at least, I hope so).
As it's been made known to me, more than one drop recently has suffered from fulfillment woes, and hopefully MassDrop can sort it out. Sooner than later, of course, but at least they're not just blowing us off at the moment. Hopefully, they're able to work something out.
We'll see what support says.
I bought a F from goulet pens a while ago for $160. $99 is a freaking steal. Bought an EF for more work purposes.
Stop extending the damn drop though! I want my pen.
It's really quite unfortunate that you are unable to ship these to Canada. If you were, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.
Massdrop, why do you keep extending this drop? I thought it was supposed to end 3 days ago, and now it says another 2 days. Cmon, I want my pen! my guess is you're getting more sales than you anticipated, but you have to end it sometime.

Except when they send you the WRONG Nibbed pen.....then it's a hassle because MD has no phone # and no humans you can get to actually DO something as it happens. That's what customer service is for. At least with AMZN you can get them to open a case immediately and issue you a return label automatically, and ship you out the right item once they confirm it's been shipped back.
marcelol
I do not doubt that is frustrating.
I assume you've attempted to reach their customer support team through the link provided under "help", yes?
I attempted copy the url. I think it's:
https://www.massdrop.com/support
Not sure if that helps but thought I'd throw it in. With the except if some shipping delays, they've been pretty good about shipping me what I've ordered, so I can't offer any more advice than what they recommend.
Nonetheless, hope this helps.
Cheers.
Any one knows, how to buy this from Australia?

I like the width of the medium pilot metropolitan, which nib for the Lamy 2000 is closest to that?

I bought it in Tokyo, so that makes sense!
Shumonkey
I live in Japan and have two Cacoons from Amazon.co.jp, fine and medium, both white metal finish, so I have to peek at the nibs to figure out which is which. I dropped my medium on the nib and had to bend it back into shape: it's about 95% back to normal. But in the process of doing that and looking at it under magnification, I realized that it had worn down quite a bit, and I only use it for short daily journal entries. So I started to use the fine, and before long it wore down to what the medium was originally, and that's what I mostly use now.
By the way, for some reason Japanese television shows frequently feature fountain pen repair gurus. From those I learned that the "gold" on gold nibs is just decorative and isn't on the part that does the writing. And I learned that when they fix a nib, they replace the broken part with a solid nib, and then saw the slot in it at the end, rather than trying to add just a new half for the broken part.
Hi Folks,
This is a great price for a great pen. In fact, this was the first thing I purchased on Massdrop over 2 years ago. At the time I was getting a great deal (about $105). This is (obviously) a better deal.
If you've thought about getting this pen, do it. Now. If you get it and you don't like it, you can probably resell it for close to what you paid.
While I've written a fair bit about this particular pen in this thread (just scroll down ... you'll find 'em - eventually), I wanted to reiterate a few things:
1. The Fine and the EF nibs seem to write a very similar line. To me, the fine nib has a noticeably larger sweet spot.
2. With the cap posted, it's incredibly well balanced. Without the cap, it seems a bit front heavy.
3. If they don't have the nib size you're looking for, consider 2 alternatives: (1) Keep revisiting the page. If someone leaves the drop before the end of the window, the reserved pen becomes "up for grabs" again. (2) Consider buying a larger nib than you might otherwise. At this price, you might be able to swing some customization from a nibmeister. The larger the nib, the more options you and the nibmeister have.
4. When securely capped, the pen is pretty durable although you might want to get a sleeve for it if you plan to use it on the go. That said, when not capped, the nib is pretty fragile. If you drop it on a hard surface it will almost certainly land on the nib because of the weight of the section. Then you'll probably need to take it to a nibmeister (and you'll be wishing you picked a bigger nib).
If I didn't already have the pen, I'd go in on this drop. I've never seen the price (technically) under $100 for a new L2K.
As usual, hope this helps.
Cheers.
Fine print: I occasionally make small edits. I'm not affiliated with Massdrop. My opinions are mine. If I come back and completely rewrite this post, I'll make a note of that.
I joined this drop last time and actually paid a few dollars more. This is an outstanding value. I own several vintage and modern fountain pens from makers including Aurora, Pliot, Waterman, and Montblanc, but the 2000 is becoming my default EDC pen.
Poor writing and error--serious error--of fact. Makralon is NOT polycarbonate (trade name Lexan); it is a fiberglass-infused resin. Get your act together, Massdrop!
Jacobus57
Makrolon is the trade name used for the polycarbonate from Bayer MaterialScience, now known as Covestro. http://www.plastics.covestro.com/en/Products/Makrolon.aspx
Lexan is the name for the polycarbonate developed by General Electric. Their plastics division was later sold to Saudi Arabia Basic Industries Corporation (SABIC). https://www.sabic-ip.com/gep/Plastics/en/ProductsAndServices/ProductLine/lexan.html
There's also a pretty sweet review and history of the Lamy 2000 on FPN. http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/227631-lamy-2000-and-the-origins-of-lamy-design/
