I own several True Writers, and this is one of my favorities. It's a bit more substantial than the usual resin pens, yet still has good balance and doesn't cause hand fatigue like some heavier pens can.

Some reviewers have mentioned some occassional challenges with ink flow and skipping with the True Writers, and I, too, have experience this; however, I have discovered a quick trick that has solved the problem for with all my pens. Before first use, or after a period of prolonged non-use, I attach the converter to the pen, sink the full nib into a glass of tepid water, then draw in and release water through the nib with the converter. Once done, expell all the water and proceen to immediately add bottled ink or cartridge. Good luck!

Every time I buy a True Writer, they disappoint me. They start out well, but after the 1st fill, theu skip, won't start, clog, etc. I've been using pens for over 15 years, so it's not user error. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband, also a fountain pen collector & user. Same thing - great the 1st time out of the box, but now it won't start. skips, and is just a miserable experience.

The pen itself is gorgeous, and a nice size, nice quality as far as workmanship goes. But if a pen won't write, there is no point....

Love the pen but need a replacement nib

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

Love the pen. But I dropped it and the nib scratches now. I've ordered two different replacemt nibs from Levenger but both of them are too narrow for this medium shaft. Would love recommendations on how to find the right-size nib so I can continue using the pen.

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

i am very happy with my purchase of this pen. The only reason I din't give it 5 stars is because I had first bought a Waterford Kilbarry Emerald Isle Pen and I may be spoiled now :) I bought the fine point for this one and I like it. The nib seems to be a bit less quality than the Waterford.; overall very smooth and excellent.

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

I have been using the Levenger True Writer for many years now and this is one of the best pens I have had in my hand. I love the way it feels and the great design is just beautiful! I enjoy the smooth flow and the broad line.
The only issue I have with this pen is that the cap does not stay on the back of the pen when I am using it. Not a big issue though...
Great performing pen. I would highly recommend this pen.

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

I recently purchased this pen with the BROAD tip and I love, love, love it. I do not care for fine point pens and I have two medium point fountain pens. The broad tip is the bomb! The pen is beautiful and feels great in my hand when writing.

Robust and gleaming

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

A hefty, but not too weighty, pen whose silver-toned finish gleams. I also like how the design undulates as you spin the pen in your hand. The nib, even a fine, is buttery smooth. A great buy!

Great writing instrument

Comments about Levenger True Writer Silver Anniversary Fountain Pen (F,M,B):

This is a heavier pen, which I like, but not at all cumbersome. A very smooth, comfortable writing instrument that I have enjoyed using very much.

I too experienced a significant amount of skipping with the pen initially - even after several flushes - but Levenger's all-star customer service department sent me a replacement pen. Voila! This pen writes as it should and has become my workhorse pen.

If you are experiencing difficulties with skipping, PLEASE just call Levenger! They really are the committed to customer satisfaction and will work with you.
