Kaweco AL Sport Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Black Body

DescriptionSpecifications
The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend fashion time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. The pens are compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches), but are very comfortable when posted (5.3 inches).

Each aluminum pen body features a screw-on cap for extra security and a stainless steel nib. The Germany-made pens reveal a Kaweco metal logo on the top of the cap. Black, gray and silver body colors are available.

One Blue ink international short cartridge is included inside the pen upon receipt. Additional ink colors are available under the "Recommended Refills/Parts" link above.

This pen is amazing!...
January 27, 2011

This pen is amazing! Out of the box, it looks tiny, but after posting it, it feels great on your hand. And the nib is high quality! I think that it even writes better than some of the more expensive, gold-nib fountain pens that I own. And the cool touch and solidness of the aluminum body really enhances the writing experience. Just hearing the pen clink as I screw and unscrew the top brings me some sensory pleasure.

This pen is definitely my favorite. I like it so much that I ended up purchasing all three colors.

KaWeCo products are hard to find in the states. So, thanks JetPens for bringing them to us!

Great pen, perfect balance of weight, length and width. Nib is surprisingly smooth and a real pleasure to write with. Only complaint is that unlike my plastic kaweco fountain pen, the cap does NOT post snugly on to the front section of the pen. This causes the cap to ride off the front section as I write with it, literally spinning around. Very annoying. I have tried jamming it on as hard as I can but it still winds up spinning around. it almost seems as though there is a piece missing inside the cap that would "grab" the front section. Anyone else have this problem?

Wow.... This pen is so nice, I wish I could write this review with it! It's a good nib width for my small handwriting. When posted, it's a full size pen, and I have thin hands, so I often use it unposted.

This is the first pen above 15$ that I've ever owned, but I really think it was worth it, as I doubt I'll need to buy another for years.

Recommended!

These are great little fountain pens you can carry with you all the time! They are virtually impossible to find in the states, so I was very happy to see JetPens.com carrying them. The only negative is that they don't carry the matching mechanical pencils, ballpoints and cool cases that fit these tiny works of art.....

Comes in a neat little Kaweco tin. Great little fountain pen. I washed the nib in soapy water, rinsed it and blew the excess water out of it, loaded up a black Kaweco cartridge, Wow! this sweet pen writes wonderfully . Its a juicy nib, with great flow and a super smooth. The finish is good. medium weight. I write unposted so the balance was perfect. Jet Pens also has some nice short international cartridges by J Herbin packed in tiny cylindrical tins that should fit the Kaweco AL Sport. They have a quite a selection of ink colors and some scented inks.

Highly Reccomended.
