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. One blue international short ink cartridge is included (it comes inside the pen), and additional ink colors are available at JetPens.
Dimensions when capped: 4.1 inches length, 0.4 inches diameter (10.4 cm length, 1.1 cm diameter)

This is my new favorite...
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.
