Thin skin, big heart.

This is my seventh Levenger pen, and though I am typically smitten with the construction of each one in my collection, the rubberized coating on the TruGrip makes this one for your pen case rather than for the blank page - which is a real shame. While it writes like a dream and is incredibly comfortable to hold, the skin is not up to snuff. My current TruGrip fountain is actually a replacement for the first one I purchased, which showed scratches and mars on its surface after a single day clipped to the lip of my inside jacket pocket. The second lasted a few weeks longer just sitting on my desk, but daily use has revealed two tears in the black coating, which shows the silver of the barrel underneath. I would suggest that Levenger have a look at the early black Lamy Studios, which also had a rubberized coating; theirs does not scratch or flake at all, even under vigorous use. I would call their very helpful customer service again, but I fear the same thing would continue to happen, and I'm not ready to let go of this fragile gem for good, imperfections or not.

Very delicate and fragile finish

I had this pen for about two months. I ordered it with monogram. When I received it, I was very satisfied with the way it looked and feel of the black lacquer finish, but I noticed the monogram was done in gold instead of silver. When you order monogram there was no options on the color of monogram. I would like to think Levenger should know better to use silver for the monogram when the pen is in black and polished chrome. Also, I noticed the lacquer finish got damaged around the letters. I called in to report the damages. Also, during last 2 months of use, the lacquer finishes came off around the pen's edges at the front end of the pen. However, the pen has very solid feel and writes very good. I gave 3 stars for the delicate lacquer finish.

Solid writing instrument

The grippy surface of this solidly made pen is perfect- not slick, but not too grippy and sticky to easily slip into a pocket. The stout clip will hold up well to extended use. Nice, easy feel and smooth writing in this no-frills but well made fountain pen.

This is Levenger's best value in pens

I've bought quite a number of pens from Levenger over the years, but this is unquestionably the best value of any of them. It looks, feels, and writes like a much more expensive pen. It's become my daily pen of choice and I simply love it.
