Like my Purple Majesty
from Spearman, Texas
Comments about Levenger True Writer® Purple Majesty Fountain Pen:
I love fountain pens/cartridge pens, the way they feel, the way they write, and the way they adjust to an individual's writing. I was glad to find a pen that looked good, that had a fine nib (I would prefer extra fine), and would be reliable. I have found that my Purple Majesty doesn't have to have "wake up shakes" to get the ink flowing. Having to do that is exasperating and embarrassing in a meeting. I would strongly recommend this pen. In fact, some of my students have expressed a desire to have such a pen and learn to write in cursive if they acquire one. That, in itself, is a testimony.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fine writing instrument with a touch of class and elegance!
from Kansas City, Missouri
I just received my purple majesty pen. It is beautiful. What impressed me immediately was the care with which it was sent. The presentation speaks of the pride in your products..I had to work at getting the cartridge to allow ink to flow (old fingers) but once it did the smooth writing was poetry. I need to get my ink. (Forgot to order that!). Fountain pens are timeless and so is this pen.
Incredible writing experience
from Spokane, WA
I started with buying a Kyoto True Writer and enjoyed it so much that I had to buy another to writing with more ink colors - I like to color code notes and the like. I bought a Silver Seas and a Purple Majesty and have been extraordinarily pleased with all three.I've seen some comments that some commenters think the fine point tip lays a line more like a medium tip nib. I've noticed that how thick the line is seems to be affected by exactly how you hold the pen - as with most fountain pens, the line is affected by the angle of the pen and the twist of the nib. Perhaps the True Writers are a little more sensitive to these factors than others. A little practice will help anyone work this out.
Disappointing -- not what I expect from Levenger
from Manhattan KS
The pen is made of cheap plastic and has a cheap feel during use. The ink flows smoothly once started but certainly does not merit the price. I use this pen daily as a functional writing tool but the pleasure in writing is not what I expected. This is not Levenger quality.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Levenger true writer
This pen was a Christmas present from my husband. I was thrilled with it. I love the way it writes and that the ink flows freely The size of the pen is perfect for my hand.
Great pen but ages poorly
I love my Tru Writer. I have a prior version of this pen (it's a lighter purple), that used to be a pen that I would take everywhere. When I my daughter got to be mobile enough that my fountain pens were at risk, I put them away for about a year in a padded drawer in my home office. When I came back to them, the ring on the cap had come off and is no where to be found. If you decide to store these for any length of time, I strongly recommend putting them in a closed bag or case of some sort -I still love the way the pen writes, but it is no longer something I use when I go to an important meeting because the adhesive that was left behind is not very attractive.
from Boston, MA
while I would prefer an extra fine nib, I got this pen with a fine nib. I love it. It's very comfortable, and the ink flows quite well. Once in awhile, there's some skipping, but I think it depends on the surface upon which I am writing.
