Open Letter To Levenger



Recommended Posts

Dear Levenger

The new True Writer Select looks nice and there are good color options. However, I'm not going to buy it until I can order it with the nib width of my choice. I am not going to buy the pen and then a separate nib! Give us the option to order the pen with and nib you offer (including the stub) or I'll spend my money elsewhere.

Helps more to complain to them, than here.

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

Yeah, one letter to them or send them a link to this thread with a lot of "I want it with a ..." messages?

The catalog I received in the mail this week lists this pen with the option of fine, medium, and bold nibs. I suspect it is an oversight that this option is not apparent on the web listing.

Original poster, have you called Levenger's customer service? Perhaps they will switch out the nib for you. I have found Levenger to be very accommodating.

I agree. I've never been very enthused about seeing complaints on forums that have never been addressed with the company.

 

I would find it more helpful to know how Levenger responded when you raised the matter with them.

Nothing burns me more about working in a service industry than when people have a problem with my shop and they walk away without giving me a chance to make it right. Even if they feel the need to walk out the door forever I would appreciate the courtesy of having the chance to rectify the problem before it effects someone else.

I agree! I love stub nibs. Some of the older True Writers have sections that match the body color. Worse yet, now it seems the stub nib Levenger sells is only for True Writer Select fountain pens, none of which I have.

After you select a color an option box opens up to allow you to choose the nib ( f,m,b ).

Yes, I just tried and it worked, but still no stub nibs are available.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Levenger! You are a great shopping place. Please let us have a stub nib option!

 

I know we should all use Levenger's contact form to say this. I'll try to do that next time I check their website.
