I couldn't update my last review so adding another one. The half-stroke to start issue was definitely because I was just starting to use the pen. Perhaps washing before loading the very first cartridge may have helped...

Now it writes like a champ. 5 Stars!

This is my second Kaweco Classic Sport so now I have a medium and a broad nib. It writes smooth both in terms of the nib as well as the ink flow.

I was a little surprised to find that this one needs a little more pressure than the medium nib. Also, it takes maybe half a stroke to get the ink going.

In my (limited) experience, the medium nib Kaweco is a shade better/smoother than the broad nib.

Some time this pen's ink flow is to wet and the ink leaks out and makes a mess on the paper. It is a smooth nib but I don't like the bold lines as much as I thought I would. I am ordering a fine nib because I think I will like it better.

I ordered this pen because many reviews said it was a good, smooth, everyday pen - and it is. The nib doesn't scratch and the ink flow is very good. Of course, I rinsed it thoroughly before inserting the cartridge. As many people know (as I did before purchasing), it only takes short international cartridges. I tried my mini Monteverde converter, but it was too narrow and didn't stay in place.

I ordered the broad nib because hoping that it would be close to my Retro 51 fountain pen, which I love, and it is very close (though not quite as bold as the Lamy Safari broad). It's a short pen and very light and comfortable to hold. Good for every day writing.
