Sometimes ‘clever’ isn’t what you’re looking for in a pen. A classic writing instrument is a joy to behold - if you’re one of those who still believe in the smell of paper and the power of scribbles. The Lamy 2000 is available as a piston fountain pen, ballpoint and rollerball pen and a mechanical pencil. If handwriting, rather than the digital format of note-taking is your first instinct, this is the best way to put ink on paper. Fancy writing is an expensive hobby for sure. You’ve got to muster up ₹5200 for a Lamy 2000 ballpoint pen, going up to ₹15,300 for the Lamy 2000 Fountain pen, both of which can be found at their stores in Mumbai.
