DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. Each pen is made of high-quality transparent and two-tone plastic, allowing ink level visibility. The pen is compact when capped (4.1 inches long), but very comfortable when posted (5.2 inches long). Thus the Kaweco slogan "Small in the pocket, great in the hand".

Made in Germany, the pen features a screw-on cap for extra security, a stainless steel nib, and a metal Kaweco logo on the cap tip.

One Blue ink international short cartridge is included inside the pen upon receipt. Additional ink colors are available under the "Recommended Refills/Parts" link above.

Q: The ink cartridges I ordered for the Kaweco Sport fountain pen seem too long and won't fit inside. Why is that?
There is an included cartridge inside the pen, which can become lodged inside the barrel of the pen. Please try gently tapping the barrel against a table or other hard surface a few times to get the stuck cartridge out.

I am always stunned at...
May 15, 2011
I am always stunned at the stupidity of people. If everyone raves about how well a pen writes including the N.Y Times and yours does not write like that then you obviously have a problem with your pen specifically. Really some people need to use their brain. What are you doing with an ink pen anyway if you can not think creatively? Put down the pen because you might hurt someone and take your dunce cap, sit in the corner until you are ready to re-enter the world.

The Kaweco Sport is a great pen, nothing to fantastic but definitely reliable and compact. Between me and my family I would say there are 14 of these pens around and everyone writes without skipping. If they go a few days with out use they do need a good shake before writing or they won\'t start right up. If you want to convert this pen to an eyedropper fill go to the link below for easy visual instructions. Don\'t worry Jetpens their prices are higher than yours for this pen. But I do have to say Jetpens told me no one else in America can sell this pen but I guess that was not the truth.

the kaweco "Sport Classic"...
August 23, 2010
the kaweco "Sport Classic" line of pens is just too awesome for words. super compact and real smooth writing you can ask for anything more.

one thing i'm iffy about is the eyedropper conversion.. even with silicon, the pressure inside the barrel still pushes a considerable amount of ink to make a mess inside the cap and around the nib.
other than that, a fantastic pen!

I already have two of these. In my experience, the best part about using these, is the quality of the nib, very smooth, like something costing much more. The feed system and the cap design keep the nib wet and easy to start without seepage. Terrific!!
In fact I am giving one as a Christmas present.

July 30, 2009
What a great deal! I purchased this pen because of its price and compactness. It seemed like the perfect size, so I threw it in my pocket. What's amazing is that every time I've pulled it out to write or draw, the ink begins to flow perfectly at the very first stroke. I've never owned an expensive fountain pen, so maybe that's nothing special. But none of the other FPs I own can do that...especially after being in my pocket for weeks. Even more amazing is that it has yet to lose even a single drop of ink in the screw-on cap. I love it so much, I'm thinking about getting another.

Summary: Got a lemon, had to adjust the nib.

Out-of-the-box, the nib was an abomination against nature.

1. Hard Starts: It refused to lay down ink when beginning a word.

2. Skipping: Almost every word had missing or half-written letters.

3. Bleeding: Ink soaks through to the other side of both copy paper and Clairefontaine paper on starting strokes, mid-strokes and end strokes.

Instead of throwing it out the window, I watched some YouTube videos about how to hand-adjust nibs to reduce ink flow and align the tines. After a few hours of gently pressing the shoulders of the nib and pressing the nib, face-down, onto a hard surface, the nib is functional with the included ink cartridge and some inks.

Some Notes:

1. Using the pen as an eyedropper is possible, but increases the ink flow.

2. Even after I adjusted the nib, two relatively-expensive Japanese inks still bled through Clairefontaine paper with this pen. I even tried to refill the ink cartridge with the Japanese ink, but it still bled through on the starting strokes and the end strokes.

3. Montblanc grey ink does not cause bleed through when used in eyedropper configuration. After nib adjustment, this ink worked well with this pen.

4. The included Kaweco ink in the cartridge dries into a pleasant, desaturated blue-purple. After nib adjustment, this ink worked well with this pen.

Conclusion: I got a lemon nib, so if you buy this, I would advise you to be prepared to adjust the nib. After adjustment, the pen works will with some inks, especially more viscous inks or "drier" inks.
