, August 27, 2011
This is my second Kaweco Sport. The first, which I purchased for college in the
60's, a piston filler with a gold nib,
was made of "destructible plastic." The plastic on the new one is much better.
The fine nib writes puts down a nice line is
is relatively smooth. If you buy the pen, watch the Jetpens video on installing
the first cartridge; it contains a useful
tip. I'm very happy I found the Jetpens site.

, January 12, 2012
I bought this pen to carry when I'm riding my motorcycle. Keep it either in my
jacket pocket or pants pocket.
It always writes the first time, no matter if it has stayed in the jacket for
weeks. And, I've found that by replacing the cartridge by making it an
"eyedropper," just putting a little silicone grease on the barrel and filling
the barrel with ink...I carry the Bad Black Moccassin ink in it....waterproof,
that I have the perfect carry pen.
It's a known fact that when you go to sign the gas receipt at a service station,
or use the pen they give you at the Post Office, or Bank, that you are picking
up one of the most germ laden devices for spreading disease!
Therefore, you should ALWAYS carry your OWN pen.....and when the check comes at
a restaurant and they hand you a BIC, just pull out your Kaweco, and watch them
gaze in awe as if you pulled a rabbit out of a hat!

One of the best under $20 fountain pen purchase I have made from JetPens. The
size is small when closed and in the pocket. Make sure you purchase a clip if
you want it to settle in a bag or pocket so it will never reach the bottom on
it's own (total length closed with cap is just near 4.25"). The nib is smooth,
clean, no issues and writes a near 0.6 line. I currently use the Kaweco ink
cartridges which do not bleed and dry quickly (I am a lefty). This is a great
gift for a non-fountain pen user as well as a good purchase for a pen lover. My
next purchase is the metallic model at the $70 range, knowing what to expect the
larger price range is less of a gamble.

A pretty good user pen for the $, I got it with the clip as well. It writes a
pretty true fine line maybe even a little closer to a extra fine than medium. I
did have to tweek the nib a bit to align the tines, they seemed a bit out of
place. Once they were aligned it is a pretty smooth with some pleasant feedback.
The flow is dry, but I have only tried it with a cartridge of anonymous ink, I
think it would work better with one of my PR inks. Its pretty tough too, the
plastic has already survived a 3 foot fall, plus the threading kept the cap
pretty secure so no complaints there. All in all a pretty good notes pen.

This is my standby always-in-my-pocket fountain pen. The writing is consistent,
the case is durable, and its size makes it perfect for this purpose.
