Just a great pen.
So it looks like this is the first review from a man to be posted regarding this pen. Since there were no other reviews from a male point of view, I thought this review might help inform any of my large handed brethren who maybe interested in purchasing this pen, but wonder that it may not be a good fit for them. Rest assured, this is a fine pen. The pen is deployed with a twist of the end cap, and the mechanism is quite sturdy. I have good sized hands and this pen neither too small nor too light for comfort, even with extended use. Really, it is a nicely sized pen. Not a broomstick, and yet not a toothpick.
But it is the styling of the pen that what does it for me. My pen is a shade or two deeper in tone than the sample pictured. Not pastel at all, and contrasts nicely with the chrome appointments. It is a delight to the eye, and endlessly fascinating as it catches the light.
I like this pen because it does stand out from the crowd. If the style appeals to you, then you may purchase with confidence that the pen will be a good fit for you.

This pen is nicely balanced in the hand and a joy to look at! It's a shame we don't actually write much anymore - so I use this for journaling, writing out checks, and jotting notes at work. It's a great pen!

Love this pen
In addition to being great looking this pen feels good in your hand and writes wonderfully smooth. I like it so much I ordered two - one for home and one for the office.

Most Beautiful Pen
Arrondissement Ballpoint is the most stylish, and at the same time, functional pen. Of course, it glides well on paper because of the good ink, but my favorite things about it are the chrome appointments. They give it a rare touch of elegance. I also like the patterns on the barrel. This is the reason i bought a second pen with a different pattern. The pen is indeed a great tool and a beautiful one as well.

This lovely, well-balanced, pen writes smoothly, I don't have to worry about misplacing a cap and - especially important for me - is comfortable in my small hand. Thanks to the staff reviewer for mentioning this particular attribute! While I usually prefer rollerball pens, this ballpoint is my newest favorite.

This pen is absolutely beautiful! Reminds me of Monet. I love its weight and the way it writes, and I have received several compliments on it already. Very pleased with this purchase!

A thing of beauty
I am fountain pen fan and never paid much attention to ballpoints. I could not decide between two of the new Levenger ballpoints, so I ordered both. The Arrondissement adds a feminine touch to an ordinary tool. It is so well balanced, it stands on its head next to my Princess telephone, easy to see and grab. The Levenger refill writes better than any other ballpoint I have ever used.

The unique combination of colors in this pen will mesmerize you. Beautiful shades of lavender, orchid, blue and purple sparkle in the light as you write. It has a bit of weight to it, but it is thin enough to be comfortable even for small hands to write for hours. Looking for a great gift...this is one that will be talked about for years.
