I love this pen. Of all my fountain pens, this one NEVER skips on any paper I've used. It has a larger line than the Pilot Prera EF nib.

This is an excellent pen for the money. The extra fine nib wrote smoothly for me right out of the box. A reasonably light plastic pocket/purse pen, it fits perfectly in my small pocketed shirts and stays in place with the addition of a clip, available separately.

For me, this has become my go-to pen when I'm out and about. It takes short international cartridges so it's easy to pop an extra cartridge in my pocket should I run out of ink while away from my desk. As a demonstrator (clear) model it is easy to determine when a new cartridge may be needed.

The pen writes every time without start-up or skipping issues. As a pocket/purse pen, it is meant to be used posted and when in that position it is very comfortable to write with. I have done everything from jotting a quick note to writing a full letter and my hand never cramps up because of the size or shape of the pen.

If you are looking for a reliable fountain pen that is compact and easy to take with you then I highly recommend the Kaweco Classic Sport.

This Kaweco Classic Sport demonstrator has become my go-to pen. For the price, it is an excellent little pocket or purse pen. Because I wear shirts with fairly shallow pockets, this pen is ideal because it fits into those pockets perfectly. I take it everywhere and find it to be an excellent writer. I have even done the crossword puzzle in my local newspaper with no problems. Ink flow is good and the line produced is clear. I have no skipping issues with it and the pen wrote right out of the box with no tweaking of the nib. Once posted, the pen is a perfect size for writing and very comfortable in the hand. I find it easy to write full letters with it.

If you are looking for a pen that closes up into a small package but opens to a full size product then I highly recommend the Kaweco Classic Sport.

As I have been testing the waters and going from gel inks to fountain pens, I always get surprised when I don't the extra fine line I was imagining. Even compared to other fountain pens, the line is way thicker in this extra fine nib than other pens. But I'm getting used to it. The pen looks great, the screw-in cap is a great idea for a fountain pen and paired with a Diamine ink, works great. It is a very small pen though, and I have big hands, so I always need to use the cap on the back to write comfortably.

Writes great with the jet black Diamine Ink. Sometimes a little slow to start the ink, which requires a few strokes on the paper. Once it starts, then it writes smoothly. Clear body allows me to monitor ink flow. Build quality is good and solid.

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 unfortunately.)

Service from Jet pens was excellent!
