The nib itself is more of a stub than an italic, somewhere between a stub and cursive italic. It's a bit more stub like than the TWSBI 1.1 nib. It's not just the nib/feed assembly, but also includes the sleeve the nib/feed assembly fits into. I. e., it's the entire bottom of the pen. It screws into the barrel. The nib is very smooth. The feed needed to be seated a bit more tightly in order to restrict the ink flow, but after that it produced acceptable line width variation rather than a line of ink with a visible meniscus.

All in all I like it. Eventually I'll pull the nib/feed assembly out and install it in the OEM part. Because I have a green Ice Sport I'm used to seeing the green sleeve. I would have preferred to receive only the nib/feed assembly, but that's probably the way Kaweco ships these. It's not hard to take apart. I'm happy to have a pocket pen with a "calligraphy" nib.

The 1.1 mm nib adds an extra dimension to my writing and is a terrific accessory for my Kaweco Sport fountain pen. Although the nib is un-plated steel and doesn't match the gold-plated trim of my black Sport pen, the 1.1 mm nib unit and section threaded onto the barrel correctly and the black plastic section matched the barrel..

I first tried the 1.1 mm nib with a Diamine blue-black cartridge and ink flow started in seconds, the nib was smooth, and the flow was wet. Perfect!

If you wanted to use this nib unit with another color Kaweco Sport, the nib and feed can be pulled out of the black, threaded section fairly easily. The feed and nib are a correct match in size and length for current-production Kaweco Sport fountain pens. A quick check may be accomplished by comparing the bottom of the feeds. If they match, there's a good chance this nib and feed will interchange with the one in your pen. The feeds have a type of registration edge to help align the feed and nib when changing them. Sometimes, a twisting, back and forth motion, while pulling out, helps when removing the nib and feed from a section. A little vegetable-based silicone lubricant on the top, back end of the nib can help when sliding in the nib and feed into the section. Just don't get any lubricant on the feed itself since it can inhibit ink flow.

Thanks to JetPens for providing such a terrific, handy replacement/accessory part.

Switching to this nib changed my Kaweco Aluminum pen from a good pen to my "go to Pen!" My Kaweco writes wetter and I love it!

I used this replacement nib to customize my Fireblue Liliput. I pulled out the nib and feed and replaced the fine point that the pen came with. Kaweco nibs are consistently high quality and very smooth writers. This stub is no exception. It provides a nice writing experience, with an italic effect that makes my normally loopy handwriting look very elegant.

Consistent performer, but with a more rounded, less crisp lettering. I bought this for the size - a small Italic pen to use daily. I find Kaweco pens to easily lay down a wet line, but for me the nibs seem somewhat "oversized". My EF nibs appear more of a Medium and the 1.1mm less Italic and more "Broad." These are well constructed pens and very dependable. I love the size of the pen. So far however, not a favorite.
