This is my first Levenger pen but it will not be my last. It is overall an excellent performer. There are no hard starts or skipping and it lays down an excellent line. The fine nib is on the medium side. This is a very light pen - surprisingly light. That can be good or bad depending on one's preference. I find that when the ink is getting low, the pen writes drier and to restore a wetter line you have to prime the convertor. If you are not careful, you could land up with your fingers covered with ink! I would have preferred a little bit more heft. it is an exceptional performer I use almost every day.

Something I don't understand

I just got this pen. It writes smoothly. It's a nice size. It looks good. But the cap doesn't stay on the barrel when I write. I've never had a fountain pen where the cap did not fit snugly on the barrel. It feels awkward, especially when I am not in a position to put the cap somewhere. Is this how it's meant to be? I keep looking down into the cap to see if there's something, like packing, that I'm supposed to remove, but there's nothing there. Besides, if there was something there, the pen wouldn't close - and it was closed when I received it. I think this makes the pen non-functional.

First Fountain Pen
from Denver, CO
I purchased this pen for my husband as he always wanted a fountain pen. He loves to write with this pen in his journal and it makes him more aware of his penmanship. I had his name engraved and it makes a very classy gift.
Great Everyday Pen
from Anchorage, AK
This is a classically styled, classically executed fountain pen. It's light weight and good balance - even when posted - make it a joy to write with. I never have dry starts or skips and the wetness that it exhibits with Levenger ink is very satisfying. The Fine Nib is consistent with other non-Japanese Fine Nibs in line breadth, and the nib provides good feedback without being scratchy. I'd very much recommend this pen to anyone getting into Fountain Pens. It's a workhorse.
from Kansas City
With numerous fountain pens, this is my real everyday, simple pen. Not too fancy, but very stylish. Works well and I can count on it. Love Levenger! It i a little light. If you are looking for something with weight, look at some of the other ones here.
from Lemoore, CA
My great grandfather gave me this pen four years ago, before two deployments to Afghanistan, and having two amazing children, he passed away shortly after. I didn't use it until two months ago until I started to journal for my organization and PTSD. The pen is amazing, it's made me want to work on my penmanship daily it's never scratchy or dry. Also my four year old son cannot wait until this pen is his, thank you for a quality product. I will be buying more.
Great value for the price
from Atlanta, Georgia
Great pen to take with me on travels. Excellent for the price!
Excellent Fountain Pen Best Value
from St. Louis
I have two other True Writers. they make excellent everyday and travel pens. The stainless steel nib provides effortless, no leak smooth writing. I have Mont Blancs, Parkers, Waterman, Pellican and Dunhill fountain and ball point pens. For price to value--this is a great pen, for a first fountain pen you just can't get a better value.People who are not regular customers of Levenger must realize if the Levenger name is on it--literally or figuratively Levenger stands behind it. I find it hard to fathom that any customer would rate any of your products and service below a 5 star level!
Lovely first fountain pen!
This is my first fountain pen, and it does not disappoint. Very attractive design! Easy to write with and lovely ink! I can't wait to get a bottle of ink next!
