Amethyst – 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.

Levenger’s Amethyst is impressive, strongly saturated and quite vivid purple. I enjoy this ink but it has some shortcomings – it’s difficult to clean and may cause bleedthrough on some papers..
