It seems Levenger is family company that offers a wide variety of products. Levenger designs many of its products, with approximately 75% of its product line being proprietary. The company describes itself as a champion of Slow Tech. Levenger CEO and co-founder Steve Leveen has aligned the company with the Conscious Capitalism movement. To that end, the company has created an initiative called Partnering for Good, which pays product-based royalties to nonprofit institutions whose missions are connected to reading or learning. 

Among other things the company offers a line of fountain pen iks.

Levenger  Regal is saturated purple. In finer nibs it's a dark, very assertive ink, in broader ones it looks more purple. On cheaper papers it can cause some feathering and / or bleedthrouigh.

Good review; thank you for posting it. I'm afraid I'm not up for a purple ink. However, if I were, this one might tempt me.

 

I have used a Levenger ink some years ago. Seems it was a good ink. I have dealt with the Levenger company several times, all of which were very satisfactory. 

 

Thanks again for the good, thorough review.
