I ordered this Kaweco...
I ordered this Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen with doubt that it could hold it's own to my Vintage Pens. I really like larger/heavier pens but wanted a pocket pen that would be a good writer. I've heard from others that the Kaweco's are good pens- so I took my chances.
I wasn't thrilled that the pen didn't come with a clip (add-on accessory) but was pleased to see it would take cartridges and a squeeze converter (add-on accessory)! When it arrived I cleaned it with mild soap a few times and installed the included ink cartridge.
Boy, what a great writer! Lightweight, gold-nibbed and the German EF Nib is almost as good as a Japanese Fine!
I'd highly recommend this pen for anyone needing a backup pen that pockets well (make sure you purchase the add-on pen clip) and one that writes as well as more expensive pens!

Excellent pen for the...
Excellent pen for the price. The gold EF nib is smooth and writes with a true EF line. A bit light due to the solid plastic body but overall an excellent pen. I would recommend it.
