Just received mine. Did anyone else receive a used pen? Mine very clearly has blue ink stains on the very bottom of the nib, and the steel hood around the nib, as well as staining around the breather hole. Massdrop, was this drop for used Lamy 2000's? The deal wasn't THAT good... even a refurbished pen, I'd expect to have been cleaned a little better than this.

I just received mine today - no ink stains. Maybe they didn't clean yours well after they tested it.

Perhaps, but do they even test them? Lamy has a reputation for giving out some badly adjusted nibs now and then, and I just can't see them filling, testing and cleaning every $160 pen!

Jfeilds, they test every pen with lamy blue.. ALL my safaris have had blue ink in them. Cleans out real well. Not a big issue. they test every pen. especially the 2000's

Interesting, I'm frankly surprised, considering I've gotten one other one with a bad nib, and another that was otherwise defective, but a good nib, and both were clear and clean. This one seems good other than that, so I guess I'll ink it up!

Hey, just checking in to make sure that you're all set, @jfields.
It seems like you got some great info from other knowledgeable LAMY users here.
If you still feel the pen was delivered in anything less than brand new condition, please tell us.

Lamy fills and tests every pen before it gets shipped out.What you see is normal except that it seams they did not do a good job at cleaning out your pen they even test out the 30$ pens. source:
