This pen is SMALL ......
, February 25, 2012
This pen is SMALL ... if any fountain pen newbies have a Pilot Petit, this pen
is about the same size but thinner, they're both around the length of an iphone.
At first, I was like THIS IS NOT WORTH TWENTY SIX DOLLARS, but after cleaning it
up and converting it into an eyedropper, I was proven wrong. If you are really
serious about getting an everyday durable fountain pen this may just be your
best option (I myself am a student.) It has such a smooth nib and is so visually
appealing I can't stop writing or looking at it. For those who don't want to
spend the extra 3 dollars on extra fine, DON'T .... because EF is still a pretty
average 0.5 lead thickness.
For those anal people who like clean nibs... I don't know if it's me, but the
ink flow is so smooth I can't seem to wipe the small ink blot on the tip quickly
enough to fully uncover the shiny silver HAHA!
Kaweco Ice Sport does...

Kaweco Ice Sport does not fall short!
Yes, this is a very compact pen but big in stature. This has everything that
makes for a top level pen and on top of that an attractive price. The EF nib
rivals my TWSBI Diamond 580 as well as my Pilot Prera. The compact size enables
me to transport this easily anywhere. But though it is small, posted, it makes
for a very comfortable pen. I have no issues with comfort and can easily write
for lengthy periods of time with it.
I love the looks of the pen that sets it apart from the normal 'cigar' shaped
fountain pens. Yes, it is all plastic but it does plastic well with its
Another big selling feature for me is if I wanted to try a different sized nib,
the Kawecos' are easily interchangeable. I see many fountain pens that offer
only one sized nib, usually a medium that is always too thick of a stroke for my
writing style. Nice to know I can expand my pen with different sized nibs.
Currently I am using the Kaweco cartridges. They offer some nice colors so no
problemo. But this also gives the option to get a converter or to make it into
an eyedropper. I would say I am very pleased with this purchase.
