I first purchased this over a month ago and I was thrilled. Nice weight, comfortable to use whether it is posted or not, great looks, and a smooth medium nib. And a true medium, not a narrow-ish broad like one usually gets today.

My first one developed a cracked cap. Levenger promptly replaced the whole pen. One thing you have to appreciate about this company is their top notch customer service.

I wouldn't hold the cracked cap against them. I have just purchased a much more expensive fountain pen from a large and well known manufacture and it has a very poorly adjusted nib.Levenger would just replace it. You would not believe the grief I am getting from the other company.

I hope that Levenger continues to keep the Carbon-F in the lineup. It is a great functioning, comfortable pen that looks great without being flashy and can be had a great price.

What more could you want?

I received this pen as a gift from my husband since I was covering this modern looking pen . I immediately put the cartridge in and started to write. and nothing. So I flushed the pen and tried again. Nothing. Tried it with a converter and some nice bottled ink. Nothing.
Then the pen fell off my desk (well with feline assistance) and the pen broke. I crazy glued it together. It looks nice, but it still doesn't write unless I undo the pen to push down on the plunger to get the ink to flow. I own several fountain pens, waterman, lamy, namiki vanishing point, etc. I love fountain pens.I hate this pen.

Very Surprised at quality

By 

from New York

Site Member

I am a fountain pen fanatic and I collect many different ones. I saw this pen on sale and said let me try it. I was a little skeptical at first since they marked it down so much. When I got this pen, I have to say I was VERY IMPRESSED with the quality of the pen. The weight was perfect for me as I have big hands and it writes very smooth. Honestly I took this pen to work and it's my work pen now and I ordered two more (one for home and one as a gift for my wife's boss). I would recommend this pen without any questions.

Levenger Carbon F fountain pen

By 

from Spencer, MA

Site Member

The Levenger Carbon F fountain pen is a very stylish pen. The deep blue tiny checkerboard pattern is subdued, but attractive. The pen is not a light weight, but is well balanced. I use it unposted, and can write for long periods with no fatigue. I also use it for signatures, posted, held in the web of my thumb. Again, it writes smoothly, with a nice medium wet line.
The pen is well constructed. I especially like the screw cap, and the metal to metal fittings from the system to the body of the pen. The converter supplied works well, and has an adequate quantity of ink. The chrome plated clip fits the deep blue and black of the pen, and the entire presentation is subdued but elegant. Truly a handsome pen, and a good value.

Carbon Pen

By

Bought this pen on sale. The ink flowed great right out of the box. The soft feel makes writing easy. It's my new default pen. Recommend this pen for anyone who likes writing with fountain pens.

Beautiful Pen

By

I love this pen. It is my 9th Levenger Pen. I am continually impressed with the quality of Levenger products. This pen has a good weight, it writes comfortably, and is stunning in black. The pictures don't do it justice.

Good

I like the flow and ease of fountain pen but it's a little to big for my hand. I thought it was a little smaller but loves the way it write and feel of it as far as weight just wish it was a smaller pen

Satisfied With a Caveat

By 

from PA

Site Member

I purchased this for a great price. The weight of the pen is great ... very hefty, and it looks great. So far, it has worked beautifully. The only flaw is that on the first day I used it, it got knocked off my desk and the ring on the cap broke completely off. Customer service quickly shipped me a new cap, and everything has been fine since.

Great Pen at Great Price

By 

from Hoover, AL

Site Member

The is the most expensive Levenger pen that I have purchased. I am very happy with the pen. It writes great and looks even better. Great weight and quality. I do have to acknowledge that if you don't use the pen often it can sometimes take a little work to get it writing again, but it doesn't take much.

Lovely pen - great support happy customer

By 

from Louisville, KY

Site Member

I received this pen as a Christmas gift, and loved it. it writes like a dream with no flow problems at all. 2 months later, it fell on the wood floor in our office and cracked thru at the rim, which I had read was a problem for others. I called customer service, and they arranged a replacement and return label in no time. I just hope the replacement is as smooth writing as the original.

Love this pen

By 

from Rockford, IL

Site Member

Excellent size, feel, and heft. Very comfortable to write with. I haven't had any problems with skipping, as has been reported previously. (I use bottled ink.) Medium nib has the perfect degree of flex. One minor complaint - doesn't look like the pix on the website. Best description is carbon fiber with a very heavy lacquer finish - so heavy it almost obscures the carbon fiber. Not unattractive, just not as pictured. Overall very happy with this pen.
