The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. Each pen is made of solid aluminum combined with genuine carbon and is compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches long), but very comfortable when posted (5.2 inches long). Thus the Kaweco slogan "Small in the pocket, great in the hand".

Each pen features a screw-on cap for extra security and a stainless steel nib. The German-made pens have a matte finish and include a Kaweco logo on the top of the cap.

The pen comes in a tin gift box with one blue ink cartridge. The cartridge comes inside the barrel of the pen. If the cartridge seems to be stuck inside the barrel, try gently tapping the barrel against a hard surface a few times to dislodge it.

Note: The metal body of this pen can be corroded by prolonged contact with ink. Be sure to clean off any ink that gets onto its surface, and do not use it as an eyedropper pen.

I got this pen as a Christmas...
August 29, 2016
I got this pen as a Christmas present several years ago. My requirement was for an attractive, robust pocket pen with waterproof ink that could write on copy paper, and this pen suits nicely. The aluminum body is sturdy and resilient, the pen is short enough to comfortably carry in a jeans pocket, and with the cap posted, it has a very nice balance in the hand. Kaweco's EF tip is the equivalent of a Japanese Medium,and ink flow is generous. I like to use Noodler's Kung Te-Cheng ink, which is pretty goopy. I do dilute my ink a bit, but this pen writes very well with it on everything from copy paper to my Mnemosyne notebooks. It also disassembles for cleaning, so when the pen does get crusty I can get it refreshed pretty quickly. I will say that the finish, while tough and durable, does wear after a while when rattling around with keys and pocket knives and such. The good news is that it now looks like the premium stonewash finish Kaweco also offers, but without the price tag.
The reason I'm only giving this pen four stars is this - the cap doesn't stay on. The cap threads onto the body for a secure fit, but there is no friction device to secure it. Half an hour in a pants pocket and it rattles loose. It's a deep cap so it's never come off completely, but then the pen starts to dry out. It's a little thing, but I feel that the addition of a silicone seal inside the cap would fix this - just a little friction to keep things from rattling loose. Given the price point of this pen, it seems like Kaweco could do just a little bit better.
That being said, I plan to keep using this pen for many years yet. The distinctive styling gets noticed, and I get complimented on my pen surprisingly often. Besides, it just feels great in the hand, a real joy to write with. The aluminum body has a satisfying heft, it feels substantial and solid in my hand. And with the cap posted, it balances beautifully. This is a pen that's fun to play with, fun to look at, and fun to use.
Great little pen!...
