DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
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. The raw aluminum surface is designed to be soft, so that as your pen commingles with your keys and other items, it acquires a worn look unique to you.

The pen 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 glossy finish and include a metal 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 love this pen! It is a GREAT traveling pen using the cartridge (the bladder filler doesn't work for me) as you can also take it on a plane. It is basically indestructible. And it is about as cool looking as can be. I get a lot of enquiries. Posted it is a good size and the nib is smooth and the ink flow even. Thank you.

I'm an Architect and love to have pens and pencils that are responsive to my hand and are also attractive and comfortable to hold. I can truthfully say that this pen is most satisfactory in all of those categories. I love its weight and solidity the line it makes and how it sits in my hand. It fits well with the three principals of Vitruvius in De Architectura , firmness commodity and delight.

I love this pen.

This is my new favorite pen.

It writes very smoothly. It's a perfect size to carry in a pocket, and incredibly comfortable to write with. Posting the cap with just a little bit of pressure makes it seat very tightly, and the cap will not rattle or fall off. If you do that, it feels like a full size pen while writing. The weight is light, but satisfying, and I personally like the feel of a metal pen.

I have other pens that write as well, and some that look nearly as good, but this is a pen that is both distinctive and classy. When you bring this out to sign something, people will ask about it.

The only thing I could see some people disliking is the susceptibility of the raw aluminum to scratching. If you go to the Kaweco website, it will give you the following warning:

"The pen gets its own character and patina due to scratches and chafes. Attention! DON'T BUY if you don't like scratches."

As long as you know that before purchase, you will appreciate the pen that you have. You won't be able to avoid scratches, anyway.

Great little pen for everyday carry! I already had a Classic Sport with a Med nib and wanted to try out a finer line in this body style. I don't see too much difference between the two nibs, to be honest, but that could also be due to the inks I currently have in each pen (Faber-Castell Stone Grey in the Med nib, J. Herbin Orange Indien in the Fine).

The Kaweco Fine is definitely much heavier than the Fine in my Pilot Prera. I'm considering a replacement EF nib for this one just out of curiosity. The hunt for the perfect pen to pair with my Hobinichi Techo continues.

Very elegantly designed and finished pen. The polished raw aluminum marks easily, but develops a pleasant worn look quickly. The finish and polish are exceptional-very crisply machined, perfectly polished, but not in a way that obscures the crispness of the lines, but still makes it feel very smooth and silky in the hand. It's really a delight to hold and writes well. I have medium to large size hands and find it comfortable to write with, even for short periods with the cap unposted. Nib is very stiff, but nice for it's size, that's even a benefit in some sense, as I feel I can bear down enough to fill out carbon forms without worrying about the nib.
