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.
