PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The ultimate True Writer fountain pen
Painstakingly crafted and precision-engineered for high performance, the True Writer Select is designed to be your stalwart daily writing companion. Obsessing over the details to create the ultimate Levenger True Writer fountain pen, our design team spent more than a year to perfect the size, weight and feel of the Select’s large and robust barrel, and to choose its unique resin, finishes and appointments. The handcrafted nib is exclusive to and expressly for the Select only. The Select fountain pen is impressively housed in a monogrammable solid wood gift box to treasure and keep.
The True Writer design story
By the end of the last millennium, the ubiquitous disposable pen had just about taken over. Though a few pen companies still catered to serious collectors with elaborate, intricate (and exorbitantly expensive) designs, it had been years since anyone offered a beautifully made everyday pen. Inspired by the Esterbrook Pen Company, which served the writing needs of the general public for almost a hundred years, Levenger set out to inspire contemporary writers with a modern take on the classics. In February, 1999, the very first True Writer was introduced. The Select takes our trusty True Writer design to a new level of writing comfort and beauty with a slightly more robust barrel, enhanced by upgraded new finishes, appointments and details.
  • Robust yet lightweight resin barrel in Macchiato, Stormy Weather or Mediterranean
  • Chrome and gunmetal appointments
  • Threaded cap posts securely on the barrel
  • Includes a cartridge and converter
  • Stainless steel fountain pen nib handcrafted in Germany

Fine Writing Instrument I purchased this pen in Mediterranean and find it to be an excellent writing instrument. As soon as it came in, I began to use it. The ink flows very well and it feel good in my hand. It has a nice weight. I never have been disappointed by any of my Levenger purchases, either on-line or in person at their Tyson's Corner VA store. January 24, 2015
Levenger True Writer Select Fountain Pen Review I recently bought this pen (in Stormy Weather) on sale, and I would first like to point out that the first one I got had a defective nib, so I had to return it. The second one I got, with my initials on the box and pen, was certainly lovely to look at (both the box and the pen), but the plain laser engraving on the box, with no contrast, is very difficult to see against the dark wood of the box unless you view it under a strong light. Similarly, the silver engraving against the gray-and-white swirled finish of the pen is equally difficult to see, although I would disagree with the review who felt it "cheapens" its appearance--on the contrary, I find it rather attractive (when I can see it). In fact, when I received my monogrammed pen and box, I thought they hadn't been monogrammed at all--that's how hard to see the engraving is, especially in dim lighting conditions. The pen itself is large, as several other reviewers have commented, but it's f comparatively light (to me, at least), and as such, I have no problem writing with it for long stretches (and I have small to medium-sized hands). To me, it is comparable to my Pelikan M800 in size and weight, and which I enjoy writing very much. Actually writing with the pen: While I am pleased that the fine nib on my True Writer Select is much more of a "true" fine than, say, the "fine" nibs on the regular True Writers (and their replacement "fine" True Writer nibs!), the pen's grip section does show an unfortunate tendency to unscrew itself while I'm writing, so that I have to stop every so often and screw it back into place. I find this unacceptable in a pen at this price point (or even the sale price at which I got it), especially when there are pens that cost less than a quarter as much that are better-constructed. Combine this with the defective nib I got the first time, and it's obvious that once again, Levenger has some QC issues with these pens, as with several of its other products (for example, most of the Levenger pens I've bought have had to be returned at least once before I got one that worked properly). In conclusion: While this pen is lovely, and comes beautifully packaged, and its "fine" nib really *is* a FINE nib, I would NOT recommend it, especially at its regular price, and I'm afraid I cannot recommend it even at the substantially-reduced prices Levenger had been selling it during several of its sales.

Not happy Like another recent reviewer, I am not happy with this pen. The pen does not write fluidly so that I have to press extra hard for a fluid line, which defeats the purpose of writing with a fountain pen. I had the pen engraved, and the engraving actually cheapens the look of the pen (I bought the Stormy Weather, perhaps it looks OK on other colors). I also bought a True Writer ballpoint pen for a much lower price and love that pen. I would recommend that over this rather pricy pen. December 12, 2014
Not Happy At All I love fountain pens, but not this one. The barrel is too fat for my liking and it's heavy. The medium nib writes a fine line. The nib also skips, does not write a smooth line. I would send it back, but alas, I had my pen initialed. December 6, 2014
Big, great pen! I collect fountain pens and have many. This pen is on par with some that are much more expensive. I ordered the Mediterranean Blue and the color is beautiful. It writes well with not skipping. The only caution I would give is this is a large pen. Having said that, it is well balanced, it just takes a little getting use to. Simply put, it is a great pen at a great price. November 27, 2014
Fantastic Pen This pen is a great pen and has become my favorite pen out of my collection. I got the Mediterranean blue and the color is absolutely beautiful. I have received many compliments so far. The functionality of the pen is smooth and consistent. You won't find better quality for the price. August 28, 2014
Well Crafted Writing Instrument Superior pen with a masculine appearance. The larger than average barrel is perfectly weighted for elegant pen strokes. The fine point delivers a steady flow of ink which supports detailed notes while being more than adequate for a bold signature impression.on documents. The attention to detail on the Select rivals pens more than twice the price. August 14, 2014
Beautiful Writing Tool I've always wanted a fountain pen and my husband bought this for me in Stormy Weather as a gift. Beautiful design, balanced and great function. I have small hands but can still write with this instrument comfortably, though I have to get used to how to hold it for writing. July 3, 2014
Surprisingly functional I've purchased several fountain pens from Levenger. The Select is by far the best. It's has a beefy feeling in my hand and may be a bit heavy, so it may not be appropriate for people with smaller hands. The writing experience with this pen, however, is simply fantastic. It's smooth and effortless. It's way better than my other fountain pens, including Waterford Kilbarry and Sailor 1911, two pens in the same price range sold by Levenger. Nowadays this is the only writing instrument that I use. July 3, 2014
Gorgeous Pen This pen is just plan beautiful. I love the way it looks and feels. Of course, it writes well too. I expected the blue color to be a bit darker than what I received, but it is a wonderful pen none the less. May 29, 2014
