The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend fashion time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. Each pen is made of high-quality, colorful plastic and is compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches long), but very comfortable when posted (5.3 inches long). Thus the Kaweco slogan "Small in the pocket, great in the hand".
Each pen features a screw-on cap for extra security and a 23 KT gold plated stainless steel nib with an iridium tip. The Germany-made pens reveal a Kaweco metal logo on the top of the cap. One free blue ink international short cartridge is included, more ink colors are available separately at JetPens. Included cartridge will be inside pen upon receipt.

This is my favorite fountain..., February 22, 2011
This is my favorite fountain pen for daily use. I have lots of Lamy Safari's, a
bunch of vintage flex nibs, some Parkers, some Sheaffers and some little-known
I just love this pen. From the weight, to the color, to the size to the nib. I
just truly adore it.
I am trying to order several more but JetPens is constantly sold out so that
must mean others love this pen too!
What a nifty little pen! I've been a fountain pen user for many years but had
never heard of Kaweco until I came across the name on this site. I'm always
looking for inexpensive but hardy fountain pens suitable for taking along when
travelling so I bought a Classic Sport to try out, and was very pleased with it.
It really is a compact pen, especially when capped, but not so small that it's
awkward in the hand (and I don't have small hands so that's important). It
would, however, be way too small for anyone to use unposted. It's also very
lightweight, so even when clipped to a shirt pocket (I also purchased a clip) it
doesn't weigh the pocket down as some pens do. I can toss it in a shoulder bag
and forget about it until I need it.
As you might expect from a German-made product, the nib writes smoothly and
dependably, and I even like the nib's decorative scrollwork. The entire pen is
somewhat unusual in shape, so it's distinctive although inexpensive.
Although I do own and appreciate more expensive pens, I'm always thrilled to
find inexpensive models that look nice and work well--in fact, some of the
cheaper pens perform better than many higher-end models! The Kaweco Classic
Sport is definitely in that category and I'm glad I discovered it.
