Levenger True Writer® Oceanic Fountain Pen
The Levenger True Writer® Oceanic fountain pen is crafted in grey marbled resin with iridescent flecks reminiscent of Mother of pearl, set off by chrome clip and appointments. The pen came standard with a Broad German-made stainless steel nib which I replaced with an Extra Fine stainless steel Edison #5 replacement nib unit. Levenger True Writer® replacement nib units are not available in Extra Fine. Like I’ve mentioned before, I prefer an Extra Fine nib on American-made fountain pens because I write on cheap crappy paper and the EF doesn’t “bleed ink” like broader width nibs. The filling system is a cartridge/converter, I rarely use a cartridge, as I prefer using my own ink with a converter. The pen is surprisingly lightweight for a resin barrel construction and fits my hand nicely for short or extended writing periods. The screw cap posts snug and doesn’t add much weight when writing. The Oceanic is a 2016 Levenger release. They introduce a new True Writer® design each year since the first model was introduced in 1999. Over the years, I’ve added several True Writers® to my collection, this model is one of my favorites.
