This pen skips like mad, basically not writing at all 95% of the time. It only works if I hold the pen perpendicular to the paper with almost no slant at all or if I use quite a bit more pressure than normal and write really slowly. This pen is completely useless to me.

I bought this (and several other pens) in preparation for this year's NaNoWriMo. I like to plan and pre-write longhand, and I have definitely been putting this little sweetheart through its paces. It is indeed quite small when capped, but I find that it fits comfortably in my (admitedly rather large) hands. Though it's quite light (and I generally prefer a heavier pen), this is a good thing - it's easy to tuck this little beauty away in a pocket without feeling loaded down. Despite the fact that it is indeed plastic, I find it quite attractive - it doesn't -look- like a cheap plastic pen.

Most importantly, it writes well! The twist-cap closes securely, assuaging my fears of inky pockets, and keeping it from drying out. I haven't yet had any problems whatsoever getting the pen to write at a moment's notice, even if it's been sitting around for a few good hours. The nib glides gorgeously, and the ink flows freely. Indeed, though I've heard it disparaged in other reviews, I really don't have much in the way of complaint in regards to the Kaweco cartridges! The royal blue I received goes on in a lovely purpley-ultramarine color, and fades to a sort of clear cerulean as it dries, which is quickly. It doesn't smear my hands, doesn't drip, leak, sputter, or stop; all in all, I find it to be vivid and pleasing. In fact, the only real complaint I can think of is that I seem to be using up the ink at a distressing rate - that said, refill cartridges are cheap!

All in all, I'm completely satisfied with this pen, and would (actually, already have) recommended it to my fellow pen-enthusiast friends. In fact, I have already purchased more to give as gifts. Definitely worth the price!

This is a reasonably priced work of art. It's like, and the ink flows like silk. The cartridges are also very inexpensive, and I can even buy them at a local supermarket (in Central Africa).

Sorry the other guy's pen didn't write. After I loaded my first cartridge, I had to tap the nib a few times to get the ink flow. It's been bliss ever since.

I have purchased several of the Kaweco Classic Sport Fountains pens over the years. Years ago they worked perfectly but I have had problems with the last two I purchased. One skips a bit and the other leaks ink on to my middle finger. :(
