True Writer Select Ballpoint
I have placed 20 orders with Levenger in the last 6 months, but this one frustrated me. The barrel is slightly loose. A tight, well fitting barrel is an important indicia of pen quality to me. The monogram is in lower case letters, unlike every other monogrammed pen I have from Levenger. I don't know if I entered lower case letters when ordering, but if so I didn't know that mattered. Pens ship free, but that is apparently considered an "offer" that could not be combined with the discount on this pen, so the net discount I received was not what I expected.

I have asked my wife for a really nice pen for a while. I received this pen for Christmas. It looks beautiful, feels comfortable, and is nicely balanced. I am left-handed and many pens just don't work for me. I am very happy with this pen.

The perfect gift!
I purchased this pen for my husband as one of his Christmas gifts. He was thrilled! The Levenger quality delivers again -- from the presentation in the elegant box to the pen itself.

I bought this pen in grey for my son who is an attorney and it was ideal although I expected it to be darker,

Beautiful and comfortable
I'm on a quest to find the perfect pen. This one comes close! The color and pattern are gorgeous, satisfying my craving for something blue and beautiful. The barrel size is wider than the standard True Writer - it fits very comfortably in the hand. Despite its larger size, it is still nice and lightweight. I love this pen and am very happy that I purchased it!

Better than expected
I purchased this pen during a sale, after having received the roller ball version and being very pleased with that pen. The size and weight of the pen are perfect for me. The color (Mediterranean) is stunning and has received numerous compliments. I am not traditionally a fan of ballpoints, so my first order of business upon receiving this pen was to switch out the refill to a gel option. Although Monteverde makes gel refills (I do NOT recommend), I found that Visconti does as well. The Visconti version is perfectly suited to this pen (note to Levenger - please carry the Visconti gel refills!). I have a very vibrant and solid blue in Levenger Select and could not be happier with the combination. My recommendation - if you like the convenience of a ballpoint but not the ball point feel, try this pen with a Visconti refill. It is a game-changer. While I do think the pen as listed is overpriced, I did get it during a promotion so the value definitely deserves five stars.

Cheap Feeling Pen
Too light for my liking. Had the feel of a cheaper pen. Edges were rough at the top. Was not happy with the pen at all. Will be returning immediately.
