LTech Plus Fountain Pen with Stylus
A great idea that works
I've had this for about a week now and it's become my standard "carry" pen. It writes really well and the stylus works great. I got this because I only use fountain pens, and it's bee so cold in Chicago I needed a stylus. It does the job.
The only issue is that it was a bit "sticky" at first. Make sure and do a really thorough rinse before filling the pen or inserting the cartridge.

I personnaly like the extra length and weight of the L-tech fountain pen. The extra length gives just the right balance to a firm pen. I am a regular fountain pen user and this is one that will I keep in easy reach. I chose the med. nib and like the smooth even flow of ink and the consistant width of the letters, no scratching the paper.

I amazed at the quality of this pen, especially at the price. First steel-nib pen I've had that writes so well.. Good ink flow.
My only quibble is the weight; the pen is so massive, it feels unwieldy. But that can be overcome by leaving off the cap.

L Tech Plus Fountain Pen w/Stylus
Excellent value with good heft. My only criticism is the fine nib is more like a broad nib.

But Will TSA Let Me Take It On Board?
Obviously inspired by industrial design, the best description of the pen is massive. I personally find it feels better to write without the cap posted. But that is purely personal as the pen's balance is quite good with or without the cap. The writing tip is good and the knurled grip is a stroke of genius.
Of course the real attraction of the pen was a stylus coupled to a writing technology I seemingly cannot do without, despite owning a "smart" phone. Amazingly, both work ends very well. The stylus is a great relief from my fat fingered mistyping.
Now if only TSA doesn't decide it's a weapon the first time I try to board a plane, I'll be happy.

This pen is worth giving it a chance...
After reading the reviews of this pen, I hesitated when going to purchase it. However, considering the sale price and the fact that I needed a pen (preferably fountain) with a stylus, I decided to give it a chance. I really like this pen. I have a hands that are on the large side with long fingers and I really appreciate the weight and design. I can see where it might not be a pen for someone with delicate/smaller hands. I like the barrel shape a lot; it does not roll off my laptop table or desk and the high-tech look has gotten fine comments from those venturing into my office. I have not had the writing inconsistencies referenced in other reviews. I have written with fountain pens for over 30 years, and I really enjoy having this dual function pen on my desk. It's a pen worth a chance.

Maybe I just received a bad example of this product. Will not write consistently, very difficult to load ink. Spotty performance at best. This is not my first fountain pen, but it by far the poorest example of any that I have. I am considering returning it if I cannot get it to work properly. It is a cool design though, but that doesn't make up for the shortcomings I have encountered so far. Just my opinion.

I really love this pen. Yes it is big, and heavy, but that is one of the things I love about it. It purchased it in the fine nib. It writes very smoothly. Much smoother than I thought it would give the other reviews. The stylus end works as described. All in all, it is my new favorite. I use it unposted, because it is quite long with the cap posted. I have small hands and it is quite comfortable without the cap. I can't say enought about it, Very glad I made the leap and purchased it.

This is a good instrument but has one flaw:the cap tends to unscrew itself. It happened several times to me with the pen in my jacket pocket.I recommend some sort of locking mechanism. also, the filling pump mechanism is not easy to affix and lets in much too much air which must be bled off before redipping the pen into the inkwell in the hope of completing the refilling. Compared to my other fountain pens (Montblanc Diplomate,Parker,Pelikan,ST Dupont...) the filling mechanism is wanting.

I received the pen with my name engraved within a very acceptable time. I have several fountain pens and I enjoy the heft and clean looks of this pen. I ordered a fine nib and I must say it is excellent! It writes very smoothly without scratching. I was also pleased that for the sales price, this pen had a screw-on cap. The stylus on the cap comes in very handy!
