I LOVE this pen! The broad nib is perfect. I filled a Kaweco converter with Diamine Red Dragon and the combination of this ink in the Bordeaux pen is fabulous. The pen glides across the page and is a total pleasure to write with.

Basics: Overall I'm quite happy with the Kaweco. I like the small size, light weight, and smooth nib. I have mixed feelings about the comfort level when writing with this pen for long periods and an intermittent problem I have with the pen running a little dry. The latter problem seems to be solved by finding the right ink (Kaweco's own worked wonderfully, Waterman and Pelikan 4001 seem to work well too).
More Information: Things got off to a somewhat shaky start when the pen had some skips. I rinsed it and switched inks and it worked great. Occasionally it still gets a little dry after longer writing sessions, but it's still a great little pen for daily carry. I've only had it for a little over a week so I'm still getting to know it. So far it's only gotten better.
The nib is smooth but can bite just a little if you roll your hand. That's not too bad. I own pens with less tolerant nibs. I'm still a fan of this one, for what it's worth.
The pen is extremely light, making it easy to write with. If you write with it posted and you purchased the clip you might notice that the balance is a little toward the back of the pen. With the clip off the pen is very well balanced. Unposted the pen is completely neutral but just a little short. I alternate between these depending on my needs at a particular time. When I'm away from my desk it's easiest just to leave the clip on or use the pen unposted.
A big seller for me is the pen's personality. The Classic Sport's styling and colors appeal to me, so I enjoy carrying the pen as an aesthetic item as well as a good pen. My Lamy is a bit better overall, but I tend to use the Kaweco because it appeals to me a little more.
