True Writer Purple Majesty Fountain Pen
Incredible writing experience
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
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.

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.

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.
