I have used Levenger brand pens for years and have always liked how they write. I think I got these two as gifts around 2003 - 2005 timeframe. I have had trouble ordering refills in the past because they do not simplify the ordering process by using numbers so that you can verify that what you are ordering matches the number of what you may already have in the pen. There must be some logic behind not using the numbers but it would certainly make ordering easier if they used model numbers. In any case, they claim that the refill will fit any Levenger pen but they do not. I ordered ten refills for my two pens and they do not fit. To clarify, these have had rollerball cartridges in them and the new refills are also rollerball. I am not trying to fit rollerball refills into different types of pens. They look the same as the ones I had in my pens at first glance, but there is a slight flare in the new ones where the tip shaft meets the barrel that prevents the tip from reaching the end of the pen. I called customer service and though the agent was as helpful as she could be, the only answer was that I can return them because they are "supposed to be the same" based on the numbers I gave her. They did not have a solution to give me which means my two pens, used for years, are now useless since I do not have a way to get refills. When I return the refills for a refund, I plan to send Levenger my pens also. They can either figure out what works or throw them away. But I am taking the time to post this so that you don't run into the same situation if you have Levenger pens from the same time period. Otherwise I am sure they are great.

Disappointing

By 

from Alexandria, VA

Comments about 2 Levenger Safety Ceramic Rollerball Refills:

I have two Levenger rollerball pens, one with black ink and one with blue. I use the medium ink (0.7mm) because I like the thicker script, but I've been disappointed with their performance, especially the blue (the black is mostly okay). The ink skips often, and I find myself going over what I've written again and again to fix the gaps. At first I thought it might be just that particular refill, but I've gone through three or four now and they've all been the same. The refill is not worthy of such a wonderful pen.

Ink Refills leave you dry

By 

from Vermont

Comments about 2 Levenger Safety Ceramic Rollerball Refills:

These refill are a hoax. They either dry out very quickly, or begin to skip. This must be a rather inferior supplier from Germany. Perhaps they should try a Japanese supplier.
I have a Levenger Verona roller ball, and to add insult to injury, these refills don't come out at the tip. They are seemingly manufactured to new specs.
Suggestion: buy another brand of pen

Garbage...don't waste your money!

By 

from Sugar Grove, IL

Comments about 2 Levenger Safety Ceramic Rollerball Refills:

I bought a very nice Levenger pen for my son for Christmas. I liked it so much, I bought one for myself. The pen is beautiful as are most Levenger products HOWEVER, the experience was ruined because the pen, after one month began to skip and became unusable. I called CS and was told that if I write a lot it would run out of ink. Thank you CS for that lesson...after 56 years, I have been taught that pens run out of ink. The CSR said, as a "one time courtesy" they would send me a refill, which I took as "you are trying to get something from us for nothing". They sent a 2 pack of Houser ceramic refill fine point black and guess what. They, after only one month of hardly using them, now are in the garbage. They skip so bad I cant read my notes and I do NOT use them excessively. I had to order ink from another manufacturer.

Please redesign the rollerball refills!

By 

from Portland, ME

Comments about 2 Levenger Safety Ceramic Rollerball Refills:

I have been buying Levenger pens (and other products) for years because I like quality of the company's products. But I have had a consistent problem with blue ink rollerball refills: They write fine when new, but quickly begin to skip as I write, long before the ink runs out. It is very frustrating. As I've had this issue with almost every blue refill I've purchased over the past 5 or so years, I have to believe the refills have a design flaw. Why advertise German manufacture when the product fails prematurely almost every time? PLEASE (!) redesign your rollerball refills as I love the pens, but I cannot use them if they don't work.

Not a bad refill...

By

Comments about 2 Levenger Safety Ceramic Rollerball Refills:

Overall, these refills were not bad. They write well, but sometimes they can be "spotty." Not bad for the value. I did have some shipping issues - so if you need them quickly, beware!

I've been using these for over a year now. Very smooth. I have not noticed any skipping on either Levenger or other paper. I would highly recommend.
