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.

on how to install the ink cartridge properly (I know it's not rocket science,
but I still wanted to make sure I was doing it right). After letting the pen sit
for awhile to let the ink seep in, I got to writing and immediately I noticed
that the ink flow was terribly inconsistent and that's even when I flexed the
I then reached out to jetpens for some advice and they said that sometimes there
can be residue left from the manufacturing process (which is a valid point) and
they pointed me to the tutorial in how to clean a fountain pen. After following
the directions to a "T", I'm still getting the same results.....inconsistent
At the end of the day, I have to think I just got a bad pen and I look at it as
an isolated incident. So I'm sending this back and getting a finer nib. It's
just such a hassle to find out this way
