This is a terrific fountain...
This is a terrific fountain pen for the money. I decided to pay a bit more for the "chess print" design, but it's, basically, the same as the less expensive version (plain-surface) of the "Sport." My pen never skips and it always writes smoothly. I also own the black version with a fine nib, and it also writes well.
Fountain pens should glide across the paper surface, and they should never be pressed hard onto paper--like ballpoints. Incorrect handling can, sometimes, lead to faulty results. With proper handling, good ink and decent paper (not glossy), these little Kawecos are an excellent value from Germany.

Nicely balanced, smooth...
Nicely balanced, smooth writing pen. The medium nib lays down a rather bold line. I think I would like the fine nib better but I'm still learning.
