True Writer Obsidian Ballpoint
I got this pen for my son as a graduation gift. He really enjoys the classic appearance and the writing quality. Levenger is my go to place for writing supplies and gifts.

Great writing instrument.
I collect pens but I wanted a new one that wouldn't break the bank. I have wanted to try a true writer for a long while now so when it went on sale I thought why not. I wasn't disappointed. Solid pen, writes well. I went with fine ink but I think medium would be better based on how they make their ink.

Best pen EVER
You might call me a pen collector. Whether purchased or given as a present, I have many pens. The best purchase ever made was the Levenger True Writer Ballpoint. Others might say I should have purchased the Rollerball or even the Fountain Pen. The Ballpoint was right for me. Perfect length, perfect heft, smooth writing, it does not get any better than this pen. Yes, there many pens out there costing much more than the True Writer, but none better. Thank you, Levenger, for such a wonderful writing instrument.

Good basic style pen, especially for the price.

The Obsiddian pens from Levenger are some of the best so far in the True Writer series. These are great pens at a great price.

Great pen value
I have a collection of true writer roller balls and fountain pens so this was my first ballpoint purchase. The pen has a solid feel and looks like a more expensive pen. I like the fact that it uses gel refills as an alternative to the ball point refills.

Best pen I have ever had!
When I talk about value, I talk about Levenger pens. I am a seminary professor and my colleagues and students always want to know where I get my pens. All that I use are from Levenger and I am proud to tell them. The pens feel great in the hand, write well, and of course, look great!

Not if you are hard on your Pens
I twice tried True Write Ballpoints b/c:
a) They were relatively inexpensive
b) They used Parker Gel refills.
Both of them cracked as a result of opening and closing the pen with too much force.
If you are hard on your pens, this is not for you. If you are more delicate, this is a good choice

The True Writer black obsidian ball point is truly a nice pen. I found the barrell to be slightly too broad, and the weight could be a tick lighter. But it's craftsmanship is suberb and I will definately purchase other Levenger pens & products in the future.
