Sneak Peek: Lamy LX, Lamy 2000 LE

Lamy is celebrating its 50th anniversary of design this year in a big way. So far we've seen the release of the special edition Safari in Dark Lilac, the special edition Al-Star in Charged Green, and the reintroduction of the BlueGreen Al-Star and the Green Safari.

Now coming later this year will be a brand new model called the LX, and a new limited edition 2000.
Here's a sneak peek at both pens, with everything we know so far!

Lamy LX
(pronounced "Luxe")

This new model very closely resembles the Al-Star, but with a few subtle upgrades. It is made of anodized aluminum in four colors (gold, palladium, rose gold, and ruthenium), with the same contoured semi-transparent grip section as the Al-Star.

The iconic Lamy metal clip is plated with the matching precious metal, which is a nice upgrade.

The black steel nib appears to be similar to other Lamy nibs, but it does have some subtle design changes. The nib features a glossy black PVD-surface as well as a laser engraving similar to what you would see on jewelry. These design improvements make the nib more solid and long-lasting. Luckily, it will also be interchangeable with existing Lamy nibs and we will be offering extra-fine, fine, and medium nibs on the Lamy LX.

The LX comes with a matching aluminum case, also anodized to match the pen.

The MSRP of the Lamy LX is $70 but you can get it for $56 on GouletPens.com. It does not include a converter, but we do know it accepts the Z24 or Z26. There are more details and up-to-date specs on the Lamy LX on the product page, so be sure to check that out if you're interested to learn more.

Lamy 2000 Black Amber

This is the much-anticipated limited edition Lamy 2000. It is made out of blasted stainless steel, with a special warm satin galvanic finish to give it a soft gunmetal look. A small "50" is imprinted under the subtle Lamy logo on the back of the cap.

The nib is the same as the existing Lamy 2000, made of rhodium-plated gold and available in nib sizes EF, F, M, and B. It will come in a gift box with a 50ml bottle of Lamy Blue-Black ink.

Constructed from stainless steel, this model has been given a characteristic surface structure finished with a special coating.
Each fountain pen will be individually numbered out of 5000 units worldwide. The price will be $590 MSRP. It will only be made available through select retailers.

Both pen models are anticipated to arrive in late September or early October. You can add your name to our email notification list found on each product page, and we'll send you an email as soon as they arrive.

So what do you think of these upcoming releases from Lamy? Do any of these pens catch your eye?
