This is a very good pen...

This is a very good pen for its price but there are better.

The pen is compact but once you post it, its average length. Very comfortable to write with. Its also very light and the color is pleasing to the eyes.

Extra fine nib writes great if you write at the right angle. If you deviate just a bit, it'll skip the first letter but go right back to writing smoothly. My Lamy fountain pens doesn't do that at all. (By angle, I mean something like 10 degree difference)

Other than that first letter skip at wrong angle, I've had no problem with leaking, skipping or flow issues. It is a great pen and problem is minuscule but I would probably stick to Lamy or keep trying different ones.

It takes international short cartridge so huge plus there. I get to use my J. Herbin cartridges!

Oh and for those of you used to Japanese tiny nibs, this writes more like a fine nib than extra fine.

Outstanding pocket pen! Remove the cartridge and converter...I Convert all the Plastic, e.g. Kaeco Classic Sport Fps to eyedropper fill con, version. A dap of silicon Grease on the threads and a blunt syringe you get a approximately 2ML of ink. With a clear demonstrator Body you know exactly the amount of ink in the pen.

**** DO NOT TRY TO CONVERT ANKAWECO METAL (Aluminum or Brass) FOUNTAIN PEN to an Eye Dropper fill .... the chemicals in many ink will react with the metal.... DAMAGING the Pen and ruining the ink.

If you are use to using a Japanese EF nib, then the German Kaweco is comparable to a Japanese Fine nib... I use the Pilot Iroshizuku and Diamine inks in my Kaweco Pens

The quality if great for the price..... Never had a nib issue or quality issue. You get a great quality pocket pen for the price.

Remember, this is not a Lamy 2K or other High end fountain Pens, but this is a great everyday carry and use pen.
