True Writer Ballpoint
After wanting this pen to carry with my leather circa notebook, for a very long time, I treated myself and I am so sorry that I did. It is an average pen - not as hefty or solid as some of the really nice promotional pens I've been given - and the engraving looks very cheap and hard to read. It has a lightweight feel that makes me think it won't last long.
It does not fit into the pen loop on my Levenger Circa leather notebook - I can't slide it all the way into the loop as the bezel at the pen midpoint is too large, so it will likely slide out and be lost soon anyway.
Too bad. I hate wasting money.

I purchased this for a special friend who loves pens, and this didn't disappoint. Beautiful styling, smooth writing, good weight in the hand. A reason to keep writing versus using technology for writing notes!

I bought this Kyoto ballpoint as a more practical carrying-around pen than the matching fountain pen I bought years ago. It feels a bit top-heavy in the hand, but it writes smoothly, is a great value, and looks beautiful.

Love this pen!
I was a little worried about price and if it would look the same as it did on website. I am extraordinarily pleased with the quality of the pen. It writes smoothly, I am left handed and so my big worry is ink stains on my hand and it is no problem. As a left hander many ballpoints don't last because of the way I write, but this one is terrific! I am looking at purchasing several others, just am so pleased!

I got this pen with the Soul Skin cover for my notebook, and it is turning into one of my favourites. Nice weight, but not too heavy; very smooth writing, and it's pretty. :-)

Wonderful writing instrument!
Being slightly older than my co-workers at Applebee's, I am used to being the 'dinosaur' as far as the gadgets I use to do my job as manager. This pen makes me feel like a more efficient manager just by holding it. Being surrounded by servers, who are notorious pen thieves, I am most careful not to leave it where it can be (shall we say) removed from my possession. I love this pen, and after opening the box, I immediately ordered another pen from your site. Anyone who has used a 39-cent Bic will sing a love song about the True Writer. Sometimes the old ways are just plain better.

I am a pen freak - I have loved pens since I was a little girl and I buy alot. I just bought this one for myself and it's beautiful. The colors, the way it writes and feels in your hand makes it a favorite of mine already.

I just received myTrue Writer Kyoto ballpoint pen moments ago, and felt compelled to write this review as quickly as possible, so that I might catch some of you holiday shoppers in time. If a pen is on your gift giving list, and your budget allows you to spend $49.00, you would be hard pressed to equal the Kyoto. The pen is average in weight for its overall size, the chrome trim and clip, are smart and well appointed, and the overall quality appears to be that of a pen retailing for twice that of the Kyotos price. The best feature of the Kyoto, is the magnificent finish on its barrel. There are no words to bring justice to the autumn colors encased beneath a highly polished acetate finish.
