Pilot Metallic Vanishing Point Fntn Pen
The Best Fountain Pen I've Ever Owned
I have a lot of fountain pens, many that I have bought from Levengers. This is, hands down, absolutely the best! Where do I start? I love the way it writes - very smooth and easy to write with. I love the way you don't need a cap and it just closes up like a ball point. It is so well-balanced in your hand, you can write for hours. And hey! It's beautiful too! This is the only pen I use now. I can't praise it enough.

Very Nice Pen
Except that it arrived broken... Actually, it was the converter that was busted in pieces. It was installed in the pen when I got it. I called Levenger and they are sending me a new one - hope it is less cheesy than the first one.
So I can only use the pen with cartridges and I usually use bottled ink. It seems to work well with the cartridge that came with it. It writes smoothly and has a nice feel. The ink flow is good - some pens you can barely get any flow going, but this pen is quite adequate.
I am wondering how good the quality is for what is an expensive pen, given it arrived broken. I am waiting to see if it will last, given all the moving parts.
However, the convenience of the "ball-point-type" mechanism is very good. No more caps falling off.
