Quote from description: “To ensure that you maintain solid grip and give a slight accent, the front section is made entirely of stainless steel, as is the spring-loaded pocket clip.“

If the front section and pocket clip are specifically called out as being made of stainless steel, does that mean the rest of the pen is not SS? Or is this just a copy/paste from the Makrolon Lamy 2000 description?

Likely just a copy and paste from the Makrolon version. This version is entirely SS.
The pen from the previous drop haven't been shipped, does anybody have the same problem as I do?

Transaction still says projected ship date is 17 OCT.
No question about it, this is an outstanding pen. The Lamy 14K gold nib caresses the paper just right, laying down a perfect line. Personal preferences: I go for the Makrolon body. Somehow it feels just right to me, but for those who prefer the stainless body, de gustibus...
Quantities are limited to 20 units?
DropCaps
Yeah, that surprises me as well. I was thinking of joining this drop, but if it's limited to 20 and 25 are purchased...

Oh... I just checked and the only ones left are broad nibs, so I'll pass. My writing is too small for a broad nib.
DropCaps
Sorry about that typo, it should have been 30 units, which is what we have for this drop.
Is this still limited to the US? I was able to join the drop despite me being outside the US. Just wanted to double check.
ge.generation
Nope. :)

If that's the case, probably need to update the information, still says it's limited to the US. Thanks for bringing the Lamy 2000 internationally!
I have the regular Lamy 2000 and one problem I have with it is that the piston is too easy to twist, up to a certain point.
By that I mean, sometimes it'll twist itself up while in my pocket or while I'm writing and my finger brushes past it in the right motion.
It's only about two twists and then it stiffens up and requires actual force to move the piston, but I feel like it really shouldn't be twisting that easily. Kinda ruins the entire seamless integration of the piston into the body.
Does this happen to anyone else or did I just get the short end of the stick?

I have had this happen to one of my Lamy 2000. the problem is the little white piece that's at the tip of the plunger. You can unscrew the twist mechanism at the back of the pen to see what I'm getting at. I just sanded it down so that it was flush and that worked like a charm.

Thanks, I'll check this out when I get home.
I was just scrolling along but wow is this thing going to be hard to write with. And good luck if your fingers get slippery.

Actually, it shouldn't be really hard. The regular version has the same stainless steel grip, but the body is Makrolon fiberglass. Never had problems writing with it, even when my hands start sweating.

Ah alright, thats a surprise. It just looks impossible from the pictures.
I have to be fair this is a really good deal for this pen, I often criticise the prices on Massdrop but this is probably a good 10% below the best deal elsewhere. It's a shame I don't have spare funds at this particular time, I've already spend my pen budget for this and next month, it is one pen I long to add to my collection.
Maybe, if someone were to provide a sample, I could write a good review. Ah but that's not likely to happen - shame!
Honestly if you are thinking about buying a Lamy 2000, I doubt if you will do better.
So I asked about the missing optional Leather Sleeve, and instead of replying to me or saying anything, Massdrop just removed it form the description...
browncore
Sorry about that, browncore. We ran out of inventory prior to the drop being launched and failed to remove it from the description beforehand. Thanks for flagging this.

Thank you for the the reply and conformation.
