Lamy News and Price Changes

Hey pen friends,

As you may have heard, the Lamy USA distributorship has changed in the US. We’re glad to be able to continue offering Lamy products through our online store, and look forward to developing and strengthening relationships with the new Lamy team in the US. With the change comes new products and new prices!

New Products

We’re excited about several new pens coming out this fall, including the new Lamy Aion, and two new Lamy Studio colors.

Lamy Aion in Black and Olivesilver
Lamy Studio Fountain Pens in Piano Black (regular edition) and Racing Green (special edition)

We are also really excited to share that extra-fine steel nibs will be making their way back into the US! We announced earlier this year that there was an indefinite shortage and that Germany was halting supply to the US until production capacity increased, and it looks like they’ll be coming back soon. We still have stock of many styles, and whatever we’re out of now should be restocked in the fall.

  • What about Lamy Vista and Joy?

    • Lydia At Goulet Pens

      We have not heard of any updates on them currently

  • David L.

    The price changes don’t seem that bad. But still, each extra dollar spent there is a dollar lost for another pen. I still can’t stop thinking about the 2000. The Platinum 3776 Century will be my first gold nib pen, but the 2000 may be next. Thank you for letting us know about this!

    • Tom Johnson

      David, you will love either. Think of the 2000 as a tank – rugged, super smooth (that’s not a good analogy with a tank), works every time. The 3776 Century is a luxury car – classy & luxurious, also smooth and gets the job done, and works every time.

    • Kathy

      Both great pens, and Tom describes them well. I prefer the 3776…it may be my favorite pen. Perfect size, great nib, and starts right up every time.

    • Mark S

      I agree with Tom Johnson. I own both as part of my EDC. I usually carry them, along with various Pilot metropolitans, both fountain and roller ball, when I travel.

  • CatherineK

    The Lamy Studio is really the only one out of the Lamy pens that interest me, and the new color is very nice. What stops me is the grip – it looks quite slippery – and I’ve enough of that from my beloved TWSBI pens. Is the Studio grip as slippery as it looks?

    • Kathy

      I’ve had a Studio for years, but never use it because the grip is so slippery. I love all my Lamy pens except for the Studio. I think the 2000 is similar, but I prefer it because it handles so well.

    • CopperCityDave

      Having used the Studio for a couple of years, the grip appears slippery, but is not. The shape of the pen seems counteract any perceived slipperiness. The steel nib is wonderfully smooth for a pen in its price range. The Aion seems to address this issue as the grip is subtly textured.

  • Kathy

    Great customer service as always, letting us know in advance about the price changes. THANK YOU!!!

  • David

    New Distributor = Immediate Price Hike. They’re getting off on the wrong foot. There used to be a day when a Distributor or Reseller had to EARN a price increase. But that was a long time ago – back when Businessmen were Gentlemen.

    • Kathy

      The Goulets are a class act. Rachel is a gentle lady businessperson. They still exist!

      • David L.

        Agreed.

      • David

        Whoa Kathy, retract those claws! Your defence of Goulet Pens wrongly assumes my comment is aimed at them, it IS NOT. I clearly state this at the very start of my comment: “New Distributor = Immediate Price Hike.” Note, Goulet Pens is NOT a Lamy Distibutor they are a Reseller. This is made clear right in their Blog post. Also, when it comes to reselling Lamy products, Goulet Pens is by no means “New”. Actually the Goulet Pens post never specifically states WHO triggered the Lamy price hikes. But the new Lamy U.S. Distributor is strongly implied.

        • Kathy

          David, my claws aren’t out. My comment is directed toward your comment “when businessmen were gentlemen.” First, many business people are women, not men, and secondly, there are still many fine business people around, of all genders. The Goulets came to my mind immediately. Then Rachel as a businesswoman. Chill, my friend. It’s good for your health.

  • Mark S

    Any word if the new distributor will be able to get EF nibs?
