A silvery Levenger True Writer rollerball
Created to commemorate the silver anniversary of Levenger, this True Writer rollerball pen is a study in metallic radiance, with the trademark design, weight and balance that have kept True Writer a much-loved writing brand. Since we introduced our first True Writer in the late 1990s, this Levenger pen has been a favorite among our customers. Echoes of the old Esterbrook that helped to inspire it are in its genes, but what really makes the True Writer such a wonderful pen is that it transforms a fine writing instrument into an everyday tool. As nice as a True Writer pen is for marking special occasions, this pen is also great for taking notes, making edits and writing letters. Steve Leveen, the co-founder of Levenger, does all three with his various True Writer pens and modes. Why be disposable when you can be sustainable for such a reasonable price? This is a rollerball pen you may well enjoy using for the next 25 years.

Professional Well balanced, a joy to write with. July 6, 2013
Quite nice, if a bit top-heavy. The pen looks great, and I've always been a fan of Levenger fibertip cartridges. It is, and feels extremely solid. At 41 grams with a fiber tip cartridge, it's significantly heavier than a 30g Waterman Expert II rollerball or a 23g resin True Writer fountain pen (my Wahls, being ringtops, are a mere 14g for the heaviest). In fact, it's one of the heaviest pens I have. The chief annoyance of this, for me, is not so much the weight itself, but the balance. Changing or maintaining the angle of the pen in my hand can often seem more difficult than it should be, especially at steeper angles, and the top of the pen can often feel like it is pushing down toward the paper. This would likely be less noticeable with a fountain pen, where I would hold the pen at a far shallower angle. In comparing the center of gravity to other pens, it seems to be in the same place, and so I think the issue is more that the weight makes that center of gravity a nuisance. I feel that there should be more weight toward the bottom of the pen, and may try adding some in the future. For now, I simply write without the cap on top of the pen, in which case the balance is much, much better. November 7, 2012
