TW Select Fountain Pen
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.

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.

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.

A Gem of a Pen
I have been collecting Fountain Pens for del over 25 years now and have accumulated quite a collection. I enjoy writing with each and every one of them on a regular basis to keep the Art of Writing flourishing. This True Writer select joins a group of other Levenger Fountain pens and stands out to catch the eye of many associates and friends. It is exceptionally functional and has a very comfortable heft and girth thus not leading to joint or extremity discomfort
It is indeed a pleasure to write with and a joy to look at

A Good Pen
I'll start with the good:
The nib on this pen is great. I ordered the fine and it is juicy. It lays down a smooth consistent line and starts up every time I pick it up.
The design of the pen is good too. The pen is well balanced in the hand and it is really comfortable to write with.
Now the bad:
I had read how great the resins of Levenger pens were. I was not overly impressed by the macchiato finish. I thought I would be blown away, but I have to say that I just thought it was nice. This is not to say that the pen is not attractive, but that I had higher expectations based upon the description and pictures online.
I also have a crooked clip on my cap. I did not think that this would appear on a pen whose makers were "obsessing over the details." It is not enough for me to be upset (it makes it unique), but for some, it might be an issue.
Overall, I really enjoy this pen. I have no doubt that when I pick it up it will write, and that is the most important part of a pen - it must write, and it must write well. It is really a joy to write with.

I love this pen
An excellent value for the price. This is a pen with "personality". It has a good heft in the hand and posts well. It's exceptionally comfortable to write with. The ink flows smoothly with no blotching. Now for the "girly" part: Bahama Blue or Skies of Blue ink work so well with this pen. Also love that ink and pen match my Levenger color block purse.

I am impressed!
I am really impressed with this pen. It really feels substantial in your hand. The quality is really notch above normal TW pen. I'm really considering buying another one in Mediterranean/ Fine to supplement my Medium/ Macchiato! All I need is good sale or a nice "Thank you" card with a coupon from Levenger!

my new favorite pen
I love fountain pens and have a few; this is now my favorite. Light weight but the nip is the best part - loves all types of paper, never skips. It is now my favorite and most dependable pen!

A Pen to Love
Already owned an expensive Mont Blanc to use in front of clients, but wanted an "every day" fountain pen. Imagine my surprise when the True Write arrived. It has a much better feel in the hand, writes smoothly from the nib, and ink flows nicely. It is now not only every day but my go to.

The description doesn't lie, this is a big pen with great attention to detail. The weight and balance are very comfortable for me, whether I use the pen posted or not. The Mediterranean color is absolutely gorgeous and goes great with Levenger's Blue Bahama ink. Now I'm ready for an island getaway! :) I chose the fine nib , which is a pleasure to write with. The ink flow is on the wet side, and the nib has just a touch of feedback for an excellent writing experience. I got both my pen and box engraved (with my nickname, including special characters) and the engraving is just beautiful. I would not hesitate to buy another one of these pens as a gift. I collect True Writers and this is a very special addition to my collection.
