Silver Anniversary True Writer Fountain Pen
I recently purchased this pen with the BROAD tip and I love, love, love it. I do not care for fine point pens and I have two medium point fountain pens. The broad tip is the bomb! The pen is beautiful and feels great in my hand when writing.

Robust and gleaming
A hefty, but not too weighty, pen whose silver-toned finish gleams. I also like how the design undulates as you spin the pen in your hand. The nib, even a fine, is buttery smooth. A great buy!

Beautiful heft and bead; very comfortable in the hand and quite attractive.

Great writing instrument
This is a heavier pen, which I like, but not at all cumbersome. A very smooth, comfortable writing instrument that I have enjoyed using very much.
I too experienced a significant amount of skipping with the pen initially - even after several flushes - but Levenger's all-star customer service department sent me a replacement pen. Voila! This pen writes as it should and has become my workhorse pen.
If you are experiencing difficulties with skipping, PLEASE just call Levenger! They really are the committed to customer satisfaction and will work with you.

an Elegant and delightful way to write
I bought this pen after a dear friend had given me another 'true writer', and I had enjoyed it very much. Its attractive and very comfortable in my hand. The ink flows smoothly -- I enjoy it very much

Very Good Pen
I own several True Writers, and this is one of my favorities. It's a bit more substantial than the usual resin pens, yet still has good balance and doesn't cause hand fatigue like some heavier pens can.
Some reviewers have mentioned some occassional challenges with ink flow and skipping with the True Writers, and I, too, have experience this; however, I have discovered a quick trick that has solved the problem for with all my pens. Before first use, or after a period of prolonged non-use, I attach the converter to the pen, sink the full nib into a glass of tepid water, then draw in and release water through the nib with the converter. Once done, expell all the water and proceen to immediately add bottled ink or cartridge. Good luck!

still a disappointment
Every time I buy a True Writer, they disappoint me. They start out well, but after the 1st fill, theu skip, won't start, clog, etc. I've been using pens for over 15 years, so it's not user error. I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband, also a fountain pen collector & user. Same thing - great the 1st time out of the box, but now it won't start. skips, and is just a miserable experience.
The pen itself is gorgeous, and a nice size, nice quality as far as workmanship goes. But if a pen won't write, there is no point....
