The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend fashion time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. Each pen is made of high-quality plastic and has a subtle checker design. Pens are compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches long), but very comfortable when posted (5.3 inches long). The pens feature a screw-on cap for extra security, a stainless steel nib, and can be refilled with standard short ink cartridges. Each pen is made in Germany and has a Kaweco metal logo on the top of the cap. One free blue ink international short cartridge is included, more ink colors are available separately at JetPens. Included cartridge will be inside pen upon receipt.

An excellent inexpensive...
An excellent inexpensive pen! I think the chessboard pattern gives it just a slightly more refined look than the plain version, especially when paired with the gold clip. It's lightweight and compact, but comes to a comfortable length when the cap is posted. The fine nib writes smoothly, though it seems more like a medium-fine line... In retrospect, I wish I'd gotten the extra-fine version to suit my personal tastes. But the thicker line does showcase my good ink nicely (because , let's be honest, the Kaweco blue ink cartridge it comes with is just awful), so I'm not too put off by the line width.
I would definitely recommend this little gentleman of a pen to anyone!
