LTech Stealth Fountain Pen
Fantastic Fountain Pen!
The L-Tech Stealth is awesome! I had never used a Levenger pen before as I'd heard the True Writers tend towards the light side and I prefer a hefty pen. This pen is good sized, solid, heavy but not too (47g), and well balanced. It has the cool professional look of a drafting tool (like Rotring predecessor), and the most important thing: it writes fantastically - smooth, wet flow, writes the first time every time. I like the M nib and it takes other True Writer nibs, so there are options.
The only thing I'd improve would be to make the clip removable. It looks like it should come off or rotate, but seems to be glued on.
If this pen suits your style, I would highly recommend it.

L-Tech Stealth Fountain Pen (M)
I just recieved this today in the mail. I purchased this pen online along with a bottle of Levenger Empyrean Blue Bottled Ink, (beautiful color by the way). The fountain pen is quite attractive. Very good workmanship and the cap lines up perfectly, as well as posting nicely when I remove the cap to write with it. Has a nice heft to it and is well balanced when writing in one of my Moleskin or various other notebooks.
The Matt Black color looks very durable, and I like the knurled portion near the nib.
While it recieves a 5 star rating, my only issue is that I prefer a fine nib to a medium. This FP only comes in (M)edium. If any of the sales associates, designers or quality control personnel are reading this, please take note. May consider changing the nib down the line to a fine nib.

An excellent pen. I have the Rotring fountain pen as well, and I prefer this one over it. The length of it is perfect for me as is the weight when I do not post the cap on it. With the cap, it can be a little heavy.
The only issue, which is hardly an issue at all, is that when screwed on fully, the facets do not line up quite right between cap and pen.

The pen arrived t the promised time. The overall quality, look, weight, and feel of the pen is surprisingly above par from other higher priced pens. I definitely recommend. If you have a long hand, I would recommend a longer longer pen than this one.

better than expected
I was not impressed by a previous purchase of a True-Writer fountain pen, which was returned and accepted by Levenger. And after reading the reviews of early L-Tech pens my doubts were reinforced about this model. But a good discount tempted me to order the Stealth L-Tech, and it is great. Clearly modeled after the Rotring 600, it has a more ergonomic grip, but it is just as well-made. The pen's inkflow is superb and the cap twists on very precisely. Highly recommended if you like fairly large pens that are indestructible.

Bought this pen about two weeks ago. I love everything about it: thickness, weight, flow of ink. It's fun using it. I look for more reasons to write with it. It replaces a Rotring which always dried out quickly. Not this one -- even after not touching it for three days, it writes perfectly. Couldn't be happier with this pen. And a work about the top-notch customer service. I received one and the cartridge was stuck in the barrel. I called customer service, arranged for a replacement, and it arrived in less than a week. Thanks much.

great product with some drawbacks
this is a wonderful pen i just got it yesterday. the feel of it is wonderful it feels sturdy and solid like it will last forever. it writes beautifully. i know i will love this pen for many years to come. my only drawbacks to this product is that i had to wait for three months for it to be shipped and i think it is a bit overpriced for what it is but overall i am pleased with the product.

I recently purchased this pen along with the Levenger Fine nib. I immediately replaced the Medium nib with the Fine nib upon receipt. I have been using it for my personal journalling and it is a great pleasure to use. It has a nice solid feel to it and fits my hand nicely. Some people might be concerned that the edges on the body might be uncomfortable but that is no problem and I have fairly small hands. I have and use four different pens and this is definitely number one or two among them.

This pen has real heft. It looks and feels impressive in your hand. I recently bought it along with the 4-nib sampler. Right now, I'm writing with the broad nib. The pen feels great in your hand, the ink flow is so smooth, and I love the twist on cap [with metal threads] - a well made tool for everyday use; but especially arresting in all black.
