Pilot Prera Demonstrator Fountain Pen
Excellent fountain pen
My wife bought this pen for me as a present. It is a fantastic fountain pen for everyday use. It writes very smoothly and consistently on numerous types of paper with no skipping, regardless of how quick or light my pen strokes are. Additionally, the ink does not feather like some other entry-level fountain pens I've used. The clear barrel allows the user to see the ink level, and visually it's a nice, fun change of pace from traditionally-styled fountain pens. I would highly recommend this pen for use as an everyday writer, and as an affordable, quality starter pen for those beginning to seriously explore fountain pens.

My Daily Writer
I bought this pen just on a whim, I did not really need another. But now it is my daily writer! The ink flows very smoothly, it is a delight to write with, and I love the clear plastic case where I can see the ink moving around in there!! The only issue I had is that the instructions said to submerge the pen to the hole in the nib to fill with the included converter, but that didn't work. I thought it was defective and had them send a replacement, but it did the same thing, and I found to fill you had to submerge up to the barrel. But after that it works great, so I suppose that is the way of it :)

Classy at it's best!
While in Houston at MD Anderson Cancer center, I noticed my doctor had a fountain pen. Well, being the pen junkie that I am, I inquired about it, where he purchased it and could not wait until my visit was over to visit the store. He referred me to a cute little store called Dromgoole's Fine Writing and Stationary store near Rice University and upon entering it was lust at first sight! The owner listened to me share the varied brands of fountain pen's I'd used prior to being introduced to the Levenger brand. I was able to try out several pens and eventually chose the Pilot Prera. Smooth as silk writing, comfortable grip and a great price for such a classy looking fountain pen. I can't wait to purchase another high end pen. Great pen, great price and I love the compliments I get when I pull my fountain pen out.

Cute and dependable
This pen has been dependable and a pleasure to write with. It is shorter than I was expecting (about 4.75" capped), but that has not been a problem. In fact, it makes it that much easier to tuck it into my wallet. I do a lot of writing by hand. I like being able to see how much ink I have left, and the cartridges seem to last a long time.

Excellent, versatile nib
Have use this pen for about a month now: it draws well, had helpful filling instructions, and the (Medium) nib fits my stencils. The pen is light and a comfortable size to hold. Being able to see the ink level is very helpful as I don't need to refill too often.
