  1. Does anyone know the name of this Levenger fountain and the name of the color? Also, approximately what year is the pen. It has an 18K nib and sterling trim. Thanks!
  2. I've been collecting Levenger True Writer (TW) pens, mostly FPs, since 1999, when they first were introduced. I've got 84 of them (some duplicates), comprising about 2/3 of what's been issued; the ones I didn't get either I didn't want or I missed their availability. I'd like to post photos of the collection. In this new Topic, I don't see the ability to post photos, as the "Post Options" on the right of this typing box (when typing) doesn't show the box for "Enable HTML," for some reason. I'm hoping that after this initial post, that box will appear so I can post photos. Even using the U
  3. I'm looking to buy a bunch of empty 50ml(ish) ink bottles(or inkwells, but they get expensive) that have a system like the Levenger ones, in which you turn the bottle upside down and it fills a little inner cup (top well?) into which you can then dip the nib for a nice smooth fill -- thus also preventing having to tip the bottle, reach into the nether regions, etc., when the ink gets below a certain level (and there's usually a LOT of ink left at that level.) Can't find 'em anywhere except at an OUTRAGEOUS cost (such as the TWSBI bottles Goulet sells for $25 a pop.) There are individual used b
  4. It took me some time to finish this comparison but here it is. Not flawless, not pefect, but it has plenty of colors to see. To be honest I've never been violet fan. I always liked dark purples but disliked most of violets. It's hanged with time. At the moment I'm quite keen on these hues. I've included 60-63 inks here (the number differs on different papers, I didn't have enough samples of some inks, I've forgotten about one or two inks and haven't included them everywhere). There are some odd-looking inks here that aren't violet/purple like KWZI Blue L51 (I just had a small samp

    Levenger Fireball - Brief Review

    ​Here's a quick handwritten review of Levenger Fireball. Sadly, this ink has been discontinued but I was fortunate enough to come across a bottle on ebay. Color is nice and strong without appearing super-saturated (like Sailor), more red than orange to my eye; scan is maybe a teensy bit darker than on the page. Flow is good - medium, I'd say - and it dries pretty fast even on BnR. While I said drying in the nib didn't seem to be a problem, I did have a hard start at the very end there at "Only" from pausing too long. It does exhibit some shading, though no sheen a la Claret or Cardinal
  6. Does anyone own or has anyone owned these hole punchers. I just bought the Staples Arc punch. I have heard that the Levenger Circa punch punches a bigger hole, so it is easier to turn the pages when installed. Is it true that it punches a bigger hole than the Staples brand Arc puncher, or is the hole the same size? Price is not an issue. I will get whichever one functions better. Will the Levenger last a long time, or is it just an expensive piece of junk? With the Levenger Circa Leverage punch, I estimate I can fit about 10 pages to punch at once (I will use 32 lb bond / 120 gsm). With the
  7. I finally purchased a Rotring 600, it is a levenger branded model that falls into the transition between series 1 and 2. It has knurling and cap retention springs. It is currently fitted with a Fine nib and I would like to swap in an Extra Fine nib. I've found other posts describing models that fit each revision but I haven't come across anything specifically about he transitional model. Will the nib from the Artpen EF sketching model fit (is this a normal EF nib)? I've also seen Esprit nibs listed on Ebay German, would those work? Thanks for your time.

    Levenger Forest Green

    Ink Review of Levenger Forest Green. Levenger markets a variety of high end items including leather briefcases, purses, etc., desk accessories, stationery items, pens and ink for the discerning affluent. While I am certainly not affluent, I do like several of their products. Levenger makes a number of different color inks, most of which have been reviewed by others. I purchased a box of standard international cartridges in Forest Green prior to Christmas and wanted to try the ink. Levenger Forest Green is a very dark green, tending towards black. It does have cyan undertones (see Wa

    Levenger True Writer

    Has anyone had to replace a grip on an older Levenger True Writer? The grip matches the color of the cap/Barrel, but has cracked, and is no longer useable. Some of the newer True Writers come with gold or silver tone grips, but these don't fit my old barrel. I wondered if the Karas Kustoms (or Kustom "K") grips would fit? Thanks in advance for all your help.

    Levenger & Rotring

    Hi Everyone, I have inherited a bunch of beautiful pens and I have been spending time trying to learn more about them. In the picture, most of these are Levenger. I have been trying to understand why the black and silver have Levenger printed but then the clip has rOtring? Are these L-tech pens? I have a lot of other rOtring but they don't have both brands printed on the pen. Also, the set of 3 larger Levenger don't look like the other regular size Levenger pens. I really like these and I want to know more. I don't know anything about the snake pen. The black pen is a Waverly fount

    Looking & Learning

    Hi Everyone, I have inherited a bunch of beautiful pens and I have been spending time trying to learn more about them. I'm looking for guidance in the right direction for details. I love reading about the facts and what to enjoy about each detail of the pen, along with the history. I attached a picture of one group I have been trying to learn about. Most of these are Levenger since I have been trying to understand why the black and silver have Levenger printed but then the clip has rOtring? Are these L-tech pens?

    21 Turquoise Inks

    Recently, I became obsessed with light blue inks especially if they are turquoise, whatever that means. Turquoise is described as greenish blue but most inks with that name are basically blue with one or very few dyes. Chromatography with these inks is not very exciting. Many of them are, however, very beautiful (to me at least) and have uncommonly good writing properties perhaps because of their simplicity and relatively low dye content. Sheen is possible with some of these ink, at least on Tomoe River paper, but water resistance is uniformly not good. That said Pelikan 4001 Turkis Turquoise

    Shiraz - Levenger

    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.
  14. So, apparently, "some time ago" Levenger stopped making Rhodia refills for their Circa noteobooks. Okay. Before I plunk down $30 on refills, is the paper they are using now tolerable? The young lady with the drawl ten times more sugary than mine said it was smoother than rhodia but a little thainer (thinner). Just wondering if I'd be better off finding my own paper and punching it.

    Levenger Pomegranate

    I have seen a few reviews for Levenger's Pomegranate ink, so I figured I would add some pics to show what the ink looks like at different times. I have a TWSBI mini that I inked today, a Pilot Prera that has been inked for about a week and a half, and a Hero 221 that has been inked for about a month. (I love the color of the ink- I don't like bright reds, so this ink is one that I love.) I have not experienced any issues with flow, so nothing has been added to any of my pens/ink. I noticed there is a nice gold sheen on the ink in the pens that have been inked for a bit longer. (I am going to s

    Pomegrenade - Levenger

    I'm not sure who makes inks for Levenger, but I must confess I enjoy them quite a lot. I've tried some of them and all were intense and intriguing. Pomegrenade is really stunning ink that I enjoy a lot. I've receivea a sample from one of FPNers and I'm hooked. Good stuff.

  25. It seems like I notice the True Writer pens in the Levenger catalog, and think oh I like that color. Then I forget about it. When the Sea Glass model went on sale, I didn't buy it. I didn't realize that it was being discontinued. Then I really wanted it. It took a year but I found a set of True Writer fountain pen and pencil in Sea Glass and got it. Flash forward to today. I had found the Bouquet version on the Levenger eBay outlet. I waited till the last minute to put in a bid. Not enough. I bid $5 higher and achieved high bidder status. Was trying to up my bid a few dollars more
