Nice little pen! The translucent blue plastic looks great, and the fine nib might be even smoother than the Pelikan Pelikano I just bought. I prefer the balance on the Pelikano, but the Kaweco cap screws on when unposted, which means you can shove the (ridiculously compact) thing in your pocket without worrying about ink stains.

This is the second Kaweco Sport I've bought, and it is the second one to be a very hard starter—two for two. Once it gets writing it's pleasant enough, but the hard start issue is pretty bad, with a small pause between sentences enough time to disrupt the ink flow. I've read online that the issue may be "baby's bottom" but I'm not inclined to try and sandpaper the nib, which is how one would fix "baby's bottom" (apparently).

I've had better luck even with JinHao, the cheap Chinese manufacturer; I had a nib from them that had a bit of realigning required (gently pressing a tine up or down slightly while looking at it through a loupe), but never anything that would require drastic, obviously-warranty-voiding conditioning.

Honestly, I thought about giving the pen one star, because the hard start issue is so pronounced and annoying. Actually, I gave the pen away as a Christmas present; if you're just jotting down a quick note the start issue isn't as frustrating to work with (I gifted it with an A6 notebook). For as much as I paid for the Kaweco, though, I would really expect to have a good, everyday, workhorse pen. Lamy Safari, Pilot Prera, and Ohto Dude are all in this price range, and they all typically work well out of the box, and serve well as everyday pens. I will say, though, that I have a real soft spot in my heart for the Kaweco Sport design; it's understated, and both retro and sophisticated. I've read lots complaints from more than one person online about their recently purchased Kaweco nib lately; if Kaweco can ever turn their worsening reputation around, I might one day give them another chance. As it stands today, though, there are too many excellent options in the market at this price point to settle; unless you absolutely MUST have the neo-Bauhaus design of the Sport, I'd get a different pen.

I have to be honest and say that I was truly and pleasantly surprised by this pen. I bought it more out of curiosity, having heard so many people rave about these pens. After writing with this pen for less than a day, I understand why. The nib starts out smooth and does not need the breaking in period I have grown used to with less expensive pens. While the pen is a bit on the light side, once posted it fits in my largish hand quite nicely.

I am looking forward to trying it out as an eyedropper pen and will probably buy another. All in all well worth the money!

Awesome pen. It's smaller than you think, but when the cap is on the pen's back it works just great.
Perfect!...
