Last year I purchased a True Writer fountain pen, as my first pen since graduating college 15 years ago. I used it for my everyday pen for grading papers (I'm a middle school teacher) and I loved it. The feel of the pen in my hand, the scratch of the pen on the paper, the flow of the ink on the paper... all of it.
I did notice that at times the lines seemed a bit thick and sometimes dragged from letter to letter. I just ordered a Fine Tip nib and it made all the difference. The letters look about the same, but there is less drag and the overall appearance is a lot neater. I plan on using this nib until... well as long as I can. I see no reason to look elsewhere.

Better than what came with pen ( I bought referb pen from Levenger ebay). However I want to make buyers aware that these nibs from levenger are different from what you may find in market. Levenger Fine is more like medium size in market. My observation comes from 2 different truewriter nibs. If I am wrong then Levenger has quality problem.

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

I was not using this pen as much with the medium nib, so I decided to try the bold. I love it now, and use it regularly. It is wet and smooth, just the way I like it!!

Purchased to replace a nib that didn't work

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

I purchased this nib to replace a nib that didn't work on the pen I purchased. I dealt with the nib for a year before deciding to replace it and see if that worked.

It is all it took. The new nib flows ink perfectly and quickly upon uncapping. It is nice that the TrueWriters have such an easy to replace nib to keep the the pens usable.

True Writer Fine Nib Excellence

By 

from Oregon

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

I am writing to say that the True Writer with fine nib is the best writing experience I have ever had. Previously I had tried the medium nib which was a bit too wide. Paired with Levenger quality Circa paper the act of writing a simple list is sublime. Levenger ink (Cocoa) is lovely and I can't wait to try Skies of Blue. Thank you, Levenger, for bringing a bit of elegance and glamour into my life.

Great Addition To My Pen Case

By

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

This was a replacement for my True Writer Levenger pen, and from the moment it went on it wrote beautifully. The ink comes out in an even flow and makes the pen seem to float across the page. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Smooth, juicy Nibs!

By

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

I've purchased three True Writers, plus the 4 pack of nibs (Fine, medium, broad and 1.1 stub. All immediately wrote smoothy and didn't skip a beat. The only caveat for buyers is, they are slightly broad western nib. So if you're used to or expecting a Japanese fine, you won't find it here.
The True Writers boast gorgeous finishes as well. A big plus if you'd like something pretty in the hand. They are smaller in size and relatively light. So if you like bigger or heavier pens you may want to try a metal version or a different model. I'm delighted with ALL my True Writers! Thanks Levenger!

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

I purchased this "refurbished" from the Levenger Outlet. I have a suspicion that there was nothing really wrong with it, only that the person buying found the line too broad. I'm quite the opposite: I've found that my Levenger Fine nib is too fine and plain looking for most purposes. I do use it, but it's not my fave. My favorite is the stub nib, but that's hard to find. I settled for a Medium nib while I'm waiting.

Fountain pen nibs give you narrower vertical strokes and wider horizontal strokes. That's the point. It makes your writing more curvaceous. Personally, I like my writting to be less Twiggy and more Jane Russell, but to each their own. If you're looking for a super-skinny line, you might want to invest in a vintage Isograph.

Maybe Levenger could produce a line of updated Isograph-type pens for those skinny line lovers out there? Just a thought.

Very Good Purchase

Comments about Levenger True Writer Nib:

Love this item, but very disappointed in the true writer pen. I purchased 4 of the true write fountain pens and each one there was problem with the Nib. I called and was told I would be hearing from someone at Levengers, never heard from anyone. I decided to purchase the Nib and am very satisfied with it because I can now use my true writer fountain pen, but I am not purchasing 3 more for each of the other pens.
