DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
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.

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.

The appearance and feel...
August 18, 2011

The appearance and feel of the aluminum cap and body are appealing, and the "F" nib is great for taking notes. Overall, I like the compact and practical design. There are a few cons, but they are not show stoppers: 1) the threading where the body of the pen screws into the cap is fine and relatively deep, giving the threads a sharp, knife edge feel that can irritate the index/middle fingers. Ironically, this isn't a problem on the much less expensive plastic models. 2) the cap has to be posted really firmly or it can easily work its way off due to the ultra smooth finish on the pen body. There is no "plug and play" when posting the cap; it requires a conscious effort, but that doesn't make me want to give up the beautifully silky finish on the aluminum.

Just received my Kaweco...

Just received my Kaweco fine nib Al Sport. In my opinion this is high quality writing instrument. I also use a Lamy Safari Fine nib fountain pen and I prefer the Kaweco. The Kaweco fine nib is less scratchy and line when writing is a bit finer, which I prefer. The Kaweco ink also performs well, I have used it on a couple different paper types (moleskine notepad, standard A4) and it doesn't seep through. I would highly recommend this pen to a friend or anyone who is considering buying one.

Also, thank you jetpens.com for quick order processing and shipping. Will continue to do business here.

I love the compactness...

I love the compactness of the Kaweco Sports and the extra weight and professional look of the aluminum series. I own the ballpoint pen and 0.7mm pencil and decided to purchase the fountain pen after over a year of owning the other two. It has a finer nib than my Kaweco Liliput fountain pen, although I also own the fine point version of that pen. The barrel is nicer to hold than the Liliput, at least for the way I write I prefer a fatter pen. I highly recommend this product and think the pricing is very good for what you get. I just wish Kaweco would provide a converter so I can use my favorite ink colors in this pen.

I just received my Gray - Fine Nib Kaweco Sport today. Wow, great pen. It writes a good fine line, not scratchy, typical firm German nib. Feels very good in the hand capped and screws closed so it travels well in your pants pocket.

Great service from JetPens again. Thanks

It was a hard choice...

It was a hard choice between the blue and silver-gray body, but the silver-gray looks amazing so I'm glad I went with it. This pen is very nice. It wrote okay out of the box but skipped on starting occasionally after lifting pen from the paper. Kaweco did a fine job on nib smoothness and evenness, but the nib had moderate baby's bottom which caused the skipping. I used a cheap 7-step/grade foam nail file to grind down the baby's bottom, and now this pen writes like a dream. Grinding it down is fast and easy. There are several good video tutorials on how to do this. Now I can't stop writing with it. The fine nib puts out a medium line on most copy and notebook paper, as other reviewers have said. Line width is comparable to my Medium Lamy Safari. Who doesn't own a Safari, right? Maybe an EF nib is better for office copy paper which absorbes a lot of ink. I really like the Kaweco blue ink because it's much darker than the Lamy blue, and has good staying power when it gets wet, unlike Waterman which nearly washes off leaving little trace it was ever there. I may be one of the few people who uses this pen without posting the cap because it's comfortable that way. It's just not right that I like an object this much. It's just a great pen!
