DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
Kaweco's Allrounder fountain pen is a classic addition to the Kaweco selection at JetPens. The design originates from a retro 50’s style that is modernized with a matte finish in bright colors. An anodized aluminum body is CNC-machined, and has a solid feel in hand. The cap securely screws onto the pen body, and features a chrome-plated clip, decorative ring, and Kaweco coin emblem. Kaweco’s excellent quality reputation is only reaffirmed with the smooth writing of the Allrounder’s stainless steel iridium-tipped nib. This pen is available in multiple body colors and various nib sizes.

Pen dimensions: Approximately 5.3 inches (13.5 cm) long when capped, 6.3 inches (16 cm_ from tip of nib to end of cap when cap is posted on back of barrel, and no wider than 0.5 inches (14 mm) in diameter.

A Kaweco tin gift box and one blue international short ink cartridge is included. 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.

I purchased this pen based purely on aesthetics. On the website, this pen has a most beautiful red hue without being flashy and I was most anxious to try a fountain pen with an "extra fine" nib. I must say, I am very disappointed in this pen. Packaging aside (it came in a retro style tin canister), I cannot recommend this fountain pen.

I am a lover of all things related to fountain pens; bottled ink, a fine nib and when appropriate ink cartridges but the Kaweco Allrounder Fountain pen broke the spell! The nib is very scratchy on paper and I tried various mediums to test delivery. Even on my fine journaling paper, this knib was scratchy and did not deliver ink flow, no matter how the pen was held. I purchased J. Herbin's Limited Edition Red ink to use with my pen and delivery of ink was poor to non-existent. I switched out to the ink cartridge that came with this pen to see if flow or nib feel would improve and I must say there was absolutely no difference. Now, by comparison, I also purchased an inexpensive sailor extra fine nib fountain pen and would you believe I popped in the cartridge and away it went. This cheaper pen's nib felt far less scratchy, performed without a glitch and so far so good!

I love the look, weight and feel of the Kaweco Allrounder fountain pen, but as for performance, I cannot recommend it. I may simply have gotten that one rotten apple in the bunch but all it takes is that one to ruin it!
I may simply purchase a replacement nib and see if there is a difference in performance but for the price of this pen, I should not have to do this. :-(
