So this is Levenger's newest FP design, and it is commendable for both being lovely to look at and handled and being quite original - not an immediate derivative like many other mid-tier FP models out there.

Quality is good but not "wowing": well made, light weight but substantial, thick and medium-large in size and seems sturdy. Metal fittings, nib section and threading seem accurate, there's no "play" in anything. Everything is tight and precision built. The sirface however is not perfectly finished. Close inspection reveals minor inconsistencies in the surface of the barrel section.

Looks: Stunning. perhaps theis is the pen's strongest point. The deep plastic colors create a 3-D illusion of swirling forms, and the color is stunning deep red. Regal. The faceted swirling panels form a nicely flowing dynamic form that beyond great looks is comfortable to hold and handle.

Nib and writing: the nib is a medium size (no other choices at the moment) steel nib. It lays a consistant line, wet, a bit thick for M some may say. There is little 'play" in terms of line dynamics, the nib is moderately responsive.

In short: an original design beautiful pen that writes a thick M and is given to only moderate nib flex or play. Consistent performance can be expected. Looks stunning but has some minor imperfections that make it stop one step short of wonderful.

Purchased this pen online without holding or writing with it in the store, which we have about an hour away. Purchased with the discount around black Friday which was a great price with 25% off. When I received the pen and opened the case, it is a beautiful pen. Quality was great, wrote very nice, but it is a very larg (round) pen and the swirl ridges just didn't work for me, it was very annoying on my fingers. I took it back to the local store and traded it for another pen. Levenger traded it with no issues in the store, so I was very happy with the new pen.

My New Favorite Pen

By 

from Bellville, TX

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

I have been a user of fountain pens for a little over 15 years. My first "Nice Pen" purchase was back in 1999 and it was a Levenger True Writer. I fell in love with it! Since then I have acquired a nice collection of many different fountain pens some ranging over a few hundred dollars. My husband bought me a Levenger Facets Onyx Fine nib pen for Christmas this year. I have not put it away since. I have larger hands for a woman, and it is the perfect size for me. The nib is so smooth and I use Levenger Empyrean in it as the two just seem to go together. I did fill it with a less saturated blue/black ink but found that it didn't perform as well as the Empyrean. I'm not sure why I like this so well, but it is the perfect pen for me. I own more expensive pens that I don't even feel the urge to ink up. This pen is now my EDC and I believe will be my go to pen for a long time. It's just a fantastic pen... I love it!

My favorite purple pen....ok my only purple pen.

By 

from Kansas City, Missouri

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

I bought this pen on sale over a year ago and it has become by far my favorite pen. I have very small hands and thought this pen might be a bit difficult to use, but I find myself using this pen more than any other. It is comfortable, well weighted and just about perfect. Been collecting "not too expensive " pens for many years. I have mild arthritis and find that because I do not have to grip this pen tightly, I am able to write for extended periods without pain. I bought the roller ball version of this pen last fall and am not so enamored.

Love this fountain pen!

By 

from Brenham, TX

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

This pen is really nice. Fits into my small hand. Its weight is just right. Really like the imperial purple, which is a stand out color from my other Levenger fountain pens (mostly blue). I have never been disappointed with any of the products purchased from your company!

Good and too light.

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

A large size pen i bought for a better fit in the hand. Mostly it is fat. But it needs more heft to go with the size. The flat spiral surface makes a comfortable grip in various positions. Having cleaned it immediately, recommended by one of the reviews, it gives good ink flow. "Fine" nib could be a lot finer.

Facets in olive

By 

from Spencer, MA

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

I took advantage of one of your sales to try you facet line of pens. I ordered the olive shade, because I didn't have any pens in that color. I was pleasantly surprised by the appearance of the pen when it arrived. The colors are very nice, and the swirling effect is very attractive, while still not being in the least ostentatious. I was even more pleasantly surprised by the the pen when I inked it and wrote for the first time. I always flush a new fountain pen, just in case of any residual oils that might be left from the manufacturing process. It may not have been necessary, in this case, but the pen performed flawlessly. The nib floated over the paper smoothly, and the line was even and nicely inked. It performed up to the standards I'd apply to much more expensive pens. The light weight and smoothness will make long writing sessions much more enjoyable for me, while still retaining the personal touch that I feel I've lost when using a keyboard. I'll be exploring other offerings, now that I know the quality of your products.

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

This is a fairly large pen - 4 7/8" long, 5 1/2" posted, 1/2" diameter. It is light however and feels good in my hand. The ink flow is generous and it starts writing well each time I've used it.

I think the styling is very attractive - I have the Onyx color.

I bought it "on sale", so I think it was a good value. I'm pretty happy with it!

Not for the faint of heart

By

Comments about Levenger Facets Fountain Pen (M):

The Facets fountain pen is not for the faint of heart: it's a big pen that's a handful. Uncapped it's 4 7/8" long, and posted a substantial 6 3/8" long to match its sizeable girth. While not a heavy pen, I found that when posted the balance was fairly neutral, but it was uncomfortable to write with due to it's size. Unposted the pen fits in my medium sized hands well, so while the Facets pen can work for those with medium to large hands by choosing to post the cap or not.

The tines on my pen required a bit of alignment (commonly required for a fountain pen out of the box), and experienced hard starting and skipping even though I had flushed the pen with water prior to inking. Using a pen flush with diluted ammonia was required to clear the feed and eliminate the ink flow issues, and now my pen puts down a wet and broad side of medium line.

The Facets fountain pen is beautiful, with great depth in the acrylic material in the body and cap. The metal furniture compliments the pen's look, where it would get compliments in both the lunch room and board room.
