PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Make this True Writer fountain pen an element of your success
The True Writer Element Fountain Pen is truly one-of-a-kind, in a league of its own. Etched in a stunning guilloche, the pen contains all of the elemental properties of our classic True Writer, combined with the new element of the cross-hatch design.  As always, the True Writer is perfectly weighted and balanced for a comfortable writing experience. An exclusive Levenger design.
The True Writer design story
By the end of the last millennium, the ubiquitous disposable pen had just about taken over. Though a few pen companies still catered to serious collectors with elaborate, intricate (and exorbitantly expensive) designs, it had been years since anyone offered a beautifully made everyday pen. Inspired by the Esterbrook Pen Company, which served the writing needs of the general public for almost a hundred years, Levenger set out to inspire contemporary writers with a modern take on the classics. In February, 1999, the very first True Writer was introduced.
  • Solid brass barrel plated in gleaming gunmetal
  • Intricate guilloche pattern etched into the barrel and cap
  • Features our stainless steel nib, precision engineered in Germany  
  • Nib is interchangeable with other standard-size Levenger and True Writer pens
  • Threaded cap
  • Comes with a cartridge and converter
  • 5 1/2L x 1/2 diameter; 1.4 oz
  • We offer refills

I received this pen as a gift for Christmas 2014. I filled it with ink, and I was very pleased with how it writes, and the style of the pen. It is a True Writer Guilloche pattern with the F Stainless Steel Nib. Two days after going back to work, a coworker bumped me and I dropped the pen on the floor. I picked it up and found that a threaded plastic piece in the cap had fractured and split from the impact. I could no longer screw the cap onto the pen. I was disappointed, but after a quick call to customer service, they had a new pen in the mail to replace mine due to the warranty. (Kudos to Customer Service!)

I got the new pen, and excitedly filled it and brought it to work this morning. It slipped out of my hand on the way to a meeting, and it the floor again (While attractive, the finish is not as grippy as it looks). The SAME plastic part in the cap broke again. Both drops were from a reasonable waist-high height - and I'm an office worker. I'm not on a construction site or something. Now look, I get the part where I shouldn't drop my pens, but I also believe in using my pens daily, not just looking at them on a shelf. Life happens, and I'd like a quality pen that, while beautiful, can still handle Life. The cheap plastic threaded piece glued to the inside of the cap just doesn't cut it - and frankly shouldn't be an issue for a pen that retails at $100. My Namiki Vanishing Point FP can handle Life just fine.... this one can't. I'll be calling Levenger this afternoon for an RMA and asking for a refund.

F nib writes like my M

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

Love the look and feel and balance. However the F tip nib writes just like my M tip nib. Don't see the difference and quite disappointed.

Good pen after a good flush.

By 

from Minnesota

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

I received this as a gift (that I picked out for myself) from my wife and my first impressions were that it's beautiful with nice heft. Filled it and it writes great, perhaps a bit broader than my other Levenger fine point nib, but I still liked it. The next couple of weeks were a struggle though as it wouldn't flow, dried out despite being capped etc. Finally got frustrated and dumped half a converter of ink and flushed it good. Refilled with the same (Raven Black Levenger) ink and it's worked perfectly since. Only downside is the plastic grip section. Would have preferred metal, but for the price I'm not complaining.

Overall great purchase

By 

from Wilmington Delaware

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

I love this pen. The metal barrel gives solid weighting that makes writing easy. I really like the texture as well; it provides a unique aesthetic while making the pen easy to hold on to. Further, the texture hides small imperfections and scratches that are inevitable with the every day use of a pen. The pen is very handsome and I always receive compliments on it during meetings, or even when I'm just writing in coffee shops.

Back To Elegance Again

By 

from Boulder. CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

After years away from writing with a fountain pen, I resumed with the True Writer Element. I now remember how personally satisfying it was to write letters and thankyou notes. The True Writer is handsome, technically sound and writes smoothly every time I unscrew the cap. I will still email and text, but return to this pen when I need to write elegantly.

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

This True Writer is so nice, I've purchased the fountain pen and rollerball pen for each of my sons. I've used fountain pens for decades especially in my position as a university professor. This Element pen is a winner!

The Art of Writing

By

Comments about Levenger True Writer® Element Fountain Pen (F, M, B):

The art of writing is a lost art in the email and text age, I have found that people are genuinely surprised to get a hand written note. Using the True Writer Element Fountain Pen makes the writing even more enjoyable for me with its excellent balance and even flow of ink. I have gotten numerous comments when I have gotten it out to take a note or sign something. Great style and craftsmanship.
