LTech 30 Fountain Pen Chrome
FINE nib is far from Fine
This fountain pen has a great feel to it. It looks great and is well constructed.
I have a rollerball which is fantastic.
The problem with this fountain pen is that the Fine point nip does not write with a fine flow. I have broad nip pens that write with a small trail to them.
For some projects only a FINE point will do, and unfortunately I will not be able to use this lovely instrument to handle those tasks.

Feels great in your hand. heavy and robust. Once it gets going the writing is good also. However, it takes some time for the ink to lay an even path on paper between writing sessions.

I received my pen about a week ago and started using it right away. I purchased the black version with a fine tip nib. I love the construction quality and over all design of the pen. I have two minor concerns with this pen.
1. The Fine tip nib writes almost like a broad tip. This makes it difficult to read the writing. I have purchased other fine tips from other companies and they are much finer in writing quality.
2. The ink supplied with this pen is of a poor quality as it does not properly supply the tip of the nib with a good amount of ink and not dry out while trying to write with it. I will attempt to use other ink after this first cartridge is empty. I would be willing to try an extra fine tip nib if it were available.. Also while writing with this ink the nib tip squeeks. This is really weird as I have never experienced this with any of the nibs I have used in the past and I am a big fan of fountain pens.

Good but not great...
So while this pen writes, and is very sturdy, etc. there are couple of issues I am very disappointed about.
First the pen had a couple of small dings in it. Secondly the medium nib writes like a broad nib. Also, the nib clogs even when the pen is stored correctly with the nib facing up. And lastly the monogram that put on this pen was put on out of alignment so that the bottom of one of the initials is not even showing!
For all the money spent on this pen and for how proudly touted it is by Levenger you'd think you would get more for your money. I bought a pen once before from Levenger and it was a great pen. But the service was much better in the selection, handling and preparation of the item when I put in my order. I am not impressed. I would expect to be able to replace this pen with a BRAND NEW ONE, but my guess is that you are not going to do that. At the very least I would appreciate a brand new "fine" nib for this pen to replace the medium nib which writes like a broad nib which I definitely did not want.
