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.

I've had this fountain pen for about 4 months, and I just want to say that it is
great! Some details about the pen:
Cap on: 10.3 cm
Body excluding nib: 8.3 cm
Cap on the back and excluding nib: 11.5 cm
Overall, it's an acceptable length. Given my small hands, I can get away with
writing without putting the cap on the end every time, but those with larger
hands can still comfortably write with the cap on the end.
The ink flows very nicely, even on poor quality paper (as in thin, rough paper)
and I love the fact that I can see the ink through the clear body! Highly
I love this model of pen! I got this clear body as my first from this line and
loved it so much that I got myself a second with the full black body. The small
size makes it perfect for small purses. I got the clip for the black model and
also enjoy having that option.
I'm sorry I didn't like this pen as much. The issue with it is that the plastic
gets scratched easily, and then it turns into a cheap looking whitish color. My
sense is that some of the great reviews previous to mine are because they had
just got the pen (I felt like that when I just got it too), or because they keep
it in a place where it does not rub against anything. If you do that it will
look great always. Mine is unusable now.
I love the smoothness of how these write. I really enjoy how they look, and love
it with the clip. They're really easy to tuck into my purse, and I've found that
they don't seem to leak ink into the cap even in that situation. I love that
they use the European standard cartridges as I have plenty to use, and the line
is super sharp and clear.
