This Kaweco, with an EF nib, writes very nicely, but.... I should have paid more
attention to the other reviews. I was shocked at how skimpy and "disposable" it
feels in the hand. Nice nib, and nice emblem on the cap --but the plastic is
thin and very lightweight; it is easy to imagine the barrel splitting.
I knew it would be small, but this was less pen than I expected for $26.50.
Ironically, the Pilot Petite at $3.30 was much more pen than I expected.
So...surprises in both directions.
I'll probably keep it, as it's here and I need an EF, but in this price range
you may find the Lamy has an edge in quality build. (Doesn't fit my hand
Service from Jet pens was excellent!
