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, transparent plastic, allowing the user to see the ink as it depletes. The pens are compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches long), but are very comfortable when posted (5.3 inches long).
The pens feature a screw-on cap for extra security, a stainless steel nib, and can be refilled with standard short ink cartridges. Each pen is made in Germany and has 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 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" 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
In fact I am giving one as a Christmas present.
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.
To begin with this pen was a total disappointment. I was tried using both the
provided ink and black bulletproof ink and the pen knib would skip excessively.
It was pretty much useless for writing. I have never used a pen that skipped
this much, the ink would just stop coming for every other character. I tried
cleaning the pen multiple time and also using other inks but nothing helped.
Finally after about a month of trying everything I could think I gave up on it
and left it in some forgotten nook of my desk. I had made up my mind to contact
kaweco about it and get my money back (or get it fixed) whenever I get time.
A few months passed by and in mid summer this year I found it in my desk again
with the nib was dried up in ink. I decided to clean it up and left it out in
the sun to dry. I conveniently forgot it there for a few days and then finally
brought it in on a weekend and refilled the catridge with ink. This time the pen
behaved better. I also noticed that the cap screws felt a little different. And
to my amazement the pen was skipping much lesser than before. I have since been
using this pen regularly and it has only gotten better since then. It lays down
a very wet smooth line. I was also supplemented it with a clip that I bought
from shopwritersbloc.com which I highly recommend.
So overall not an easy pen to get along with initially but ultimately it proved
