Sheaffer Prelude Fountain Pen
One of my favorite fountain pens
I have many many fountain pens, more than I deserve or need. This pen is one of my favorite daily use pens. When the pen arrived, engraved, I was really impressed by how stylish it look. The weight is just perfect for my hand, I prefer something that feels substantial, and this does indeed. I have found that without the cap I don't write as neatly and with the cap on it is much easier. The cap provides a nice weighted end. At first I noticed the pen leaked quite a bit and I couldn't figure out exactly why that was so. It took me a while to determine that the cartridge adapter was the culprit which caused the barrel to fill with ink there by causing the leaking. I called Levenger explained the problem to them and they sent me a free replacement cartridge adapter, very nice and impressive. I have always found Levenger to be trustworthy and extremely easy to work with. I recommend this pen highly.

A stylish and elegant writing instrument. I've been a fan of fountain pens since youth. We had the old plastic see-through pens with cartridges then. This Sheaffer is a great looking and performing pen. Medium point writes bolder as I like it. I'm using the cartridges now, but it came with a screw-type plunger converter so I'll try that soon. I'm impressed. I've been using one cartridge now for 2 solid weeks. That's very efficient ink use. I also like its snap cap rather than a screw on. Those are hard to find and one reason I bought this one. Hoping to have this one a long time.

My dad bought this for me for school. It is perfect and comfortable. The ink flow is excellent. I use this pen every day and cannot wait to take it with me to school.

Great Writing Instrument
My wife bought this for me as a Christmas present. I had never had a fountain pen before this. I will always have one from this point forward. I use this everyday during the course of my work.
Thanks to you and my wife for a great writing instrument and gift.

Best Fountain Pen-EVER!!!
I am left handed and thought I could never use a fountain pen. I smudged my way through all my writing whenever I tried to use a fountain pen. But then I was introduced to Levenger and using their wonderful paper and my new Sheaffer Prelude fountain pen, I am now smudge-free I think it improves my handwriting and is a pleasure to use at all times. The pen is beautiful and feels great in my hand, I just love it and will order the roller ball so I can have a set to put in my double pen holder. Order this pen-you can't go wrong because you will LOVE it!!!
