True Writer Rollerball
Kyoto True Writer Poem
Deepest shades of ochre, amber, and jade
Countless cherished words penned and poems made
Gorgeously formed, loved, always in demand
A tool for creators from which they can command
Words! Songs! Uses Untold!
From the Kyoto True Writer beauty unfolds!
Her weight in the hand feels curiously right
Bold and true, clean and light.
Few understand the power of the pen
But the Kyoto is the essence of Zen
For the writers, the businessman, poets and more
Use the Kyoto and your words will soar!

It was cool to the touch, yet like silk to my parchment. I was in awe of it's fluidity. Penmanship did not matter as with every stroke of my wrist, a beautiful creation was delivered as each word was written...Carmen, Grand Prairie, TX.

Jots leave stains of my heart's passion
Capturing what is fleeting now
Ah, my True Writer calls me forward

Move Over Mounteverde
This pen was purchased to replace a Mountverde pen that kept malfunctioning. The marbeled barrel is a near perfect match to what I had - the exception was I elected for a fine point rollerball tip vs. a medium point. As previous reviewers noted - the fine point tip is the perfect choice for detailed forms but comes up a bit short on the flawless signature aspect. Over all, I am pleased with the purchase and the pens performance.

Bring Back the Gold
I love the TrueWriter pens, particularly the Kyoto, but the change to silver doesn't make sense. Perhaps the cost to produce a gold tone pen went up? I would be more than willing to pay a premium and believe many others feel the same.

I just received this pen in the mail and it is truly amazing! First, it is beautiful. I keep looking at it and seeing all the different specks of color. It's like looking into a prism -- just fascinating. It has a wonderful feel--weighty, yet well-balanced in the hand. It writes smoothly and easily and does not blot. I am completely pleased with this purchase and feel I have a pen that is worthy of a professional image.

Wready for Writing
Excellent craftsmanship throughout the pen. Easy to hold and angled correctly for both upright and slanted writing. Easy to use both right and left handed. My wife took my last one as soon as she saw it. Lots of inquiries as to where to buy due to its distinctive style and colors. Shows not wear after 4 years of regular use. Great Product!!

Was the perfect pen ....
But I see the former gold fittings are now silver toned. The gold color went perfectly with the brown tortoise shell pen and I need a new one but will wait until the gold returns.
I do have a spare fortunately but will miss the convenience of having one in my purse and one in my desk.
Silver and brown just are jarring. At least to me. But it is by far the best pen I have ever owned.

I just picked up a Kyoto rollerball for myself for Christmas, to go with my beloved Kyoto discs, and I can't even tell you how gorgeous this pen is!
The discs are nice, but the pen blows them away! The entire pen is the same glossy, smooth, heavenly resin that you see on the outer edges of the discs. I was concerned that it might look too "busy" with the mix of colors, but it doesn't...it is nothing but classy and amazing! I find myself staring at it because it seems I always notice some new beautiful bit each time.
It is weighted perfectly and a sheer pleasure to write with. I look forward to using this pen for years to come.

Why no red fiber-tip refills?
I own a half-dozen True Writers and I love them all. The Kyoto is particularly stunning. I use them mostly with fiber-tip refills.
My only complaint is that Levenger does not sell RED fiber-tip refills, which would be very helpful in my work.
(Other colors would be cool too, but red is essential.)
