PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
The ballpoint that continues to win hearts (and hands)
One reason our True Writer ballpoint pen has become such a collectible is that we deliver more than we promise. The marvel is that such a fine pen carries such a reasonable price. Its lustrous barrel is even more vibrant than our photography pros can show you.
The True Writer design story 
By the end of the last millennium, the ubiquitous disposable pen had just about taken over. Though a few pen companies still catered to serious collectors with elaborate, intricate (and exorbitantly expensive) designs, it had been years since anyone offered a beautifully made everyday pen. Inspired by the Esterbrook Pen Company, which served the writing needs of the general public for almost a hundred years, Levenger set out to inspire contemporary writers with a modern take on the classics. In February, 1999, the very first True Writer was introduced.

Nice Writing Instrument I truly enjoy using this pen. I look forward to years of smooth writing pleasure. Great pen for everyday work and personal use. November 13, 2013
Nice pen 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. :-) March 18, 2013
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. December 11, 2012
Beautiful! 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. January 2, 2012
exceeds expectations 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. December 2, 2011
If you really want to treat yourself... My wife thinks I have an obsession for fancy pens and I must admit I have treated myself because I do a lot of writing in my profession and want to be comfortable. Levenger really out did themselves this time with the True Writer pen in the choice of three colors of which I chose the extrodinary beautiful blue. It feels awesome and writes even better. I get more compliments on my pen than I do my clothes and I wear some very nice suits and ties to work. Thanks for the great work Steve on your selection. July 22, 2011
Absolutely "worth it all" I have been trying to make up my mind about purchasing a Levenger True Writer for quite some time, and only recently 'took the plundge' One of my reasons for hestitating was that I could not decide ...which one! I finally got the "Kyoto", and boy/girlfriend... it was worth the wait! It is absolutely beautiful to look at, it feels good in the hand and I know that I shall have great pleasure using it. So... order yours today... November 18, 2010
Even more beautiful than the picture shows... I received this ballpoint as a gift (from someone who knew I wanted a Levenger pen but was too stingy to buy one for myself) :) and I'm amazed at how beautiful the Kyoto is. I normally like things best with pink/blue coloration, but this pen has beautiful large flecks of lavender, teal, and sunny yellow, to balance out the orange/brown flecks. I prefer rollerball ink over ballpoint, so I'm going to buy the "roller ballpoint" ink refills, which do fit this ballpoint (Levenger customer service verified this for me), so I'm incredibly happy with this!

Color me pink! I am not a big fan of pink but this pen is absolutely perfect. The marble coloring is gorgeous! I can't believe I found such a lovely pen at such a reasonable price. I have always been a huge fan of Levenger's products and this one does not disappoint at all. February 20, 2009
Kyoto is just gorgeous The Kyoto True Writer is absolutely the most beautiful pen in my collection. I love Levenger pens, and their mechanical pencils are just as wonderful. My request to Levenger: Please make a Kyot pencil! February 8, 2009
