Kaweco designed the Dia2 fountain pen to embody timeless beauty like a "DIAmond". It has classic styling, with a shiny black acrylic body, a solid chrome-colored brass clip, and additional chrome-colored accents including Kaweco logos on the cap and back end. The distinctive knurling on the cap and end of the barrel has been a unique design element since Dia2 was launched in the 1930s. The nib is steel with an iridium point, and comes from renowned nib maker Bock Heidelberg. With its screw-on cap, the pen stays securely closed when not in use.

A blue short international ink cartridge and gift box are included. The cartridge comes inside the barrel of the pen. If the cartridge seems to be stuck inside the barrel, try gently tapping the barrel against a hard surface a few times to dislodge it.

This pen has classic...

This pen has classic styling, solid construction, and decent heft. It feels good in the hand and writes smoothly with no delay or skipping. I similarly enjoyed the less expensive Kaweco Student but found the metal grip to be a bit slick. The Dia2 is definitely a cut above the Student in style and construction. The grip is acrylic which affords a much surer hold. Aesthetically, I prefer the chrome fittings, but I found the gold-plated nib to be just slightly smoother. It can be purchased at Jet Pens. I enjoy the Fine nib. For me it has just the right smoothness and thickness of line. (It is right between the Japanese Fine and Medium nibs). This is a great looking and writing pen that will last a lifetime. In looks, performance, and construction, I place it in the same field as the far more expensive, classic fountain pens.

Highly recommend this pen, but with one caveat.

The F nib does not like to write on smooth coated paper. I bought a 1.5 mm replacement nib and it works perfectly with this pen.

For your reference, here is my experience with Kaweco nibs:

1. F - hard starts, skips and bleeds on premium paper
2. M - hard starts, skips and bleeds on premium paper
3. 1.1 mm stub - perfect
4. 1.5 mm stub - perfect
