Ever since I read the...
Ever since I read the article in the NY Times about the playwright who used a Kaweco I've wanted one, and my first Kaweco arrived yesterday. Overall a great pen. Writes smooth and feels good. Very lightweight, though, which I was surprised by. That will take getting used to. I will probably buy another Kaweco at some point in the future.
About nibs: I am a relative novice when it comes to fountain pens, but I have noticed that there seems to be no telling how fine a line a fine nib will lay down--my other pen is a medium nib that writes a finer line than this Kaweco. I have another pen with a fine nib that writes what I would call a thick broad-nibbed line. Is there a rule of thumb--country of origin maybe?

I've been a Platinum...
I've been a Platinum Preppy user for a while. It's not what most pen addicts would consider a top-notch fountain pen, but they've always performed great for me, and, for a few bucks, have provided a good utility, every-day fountain pen experience. I've wanted to try the Kaweco Sport for a while. My initial impression was that, at $24, it's slightly over-priced, and that it had nothing over the $4 Preppy. But it's grown on me, and I really love using it. I love the compact size (very much a full-sized pen, when posted), and I have to say it's a great nib. I love the (standard) blue Kaweco ink too. I use a Rhodia Webbie on a daily basis, so almost any pen performs well on that kind of paper. The size and screw-on cap makes it a good carry pen. It's very light, very basic, nothing fancy, but it's a smart, well-made little pen. I love using it.

It is good. I love it. However...
It is good. I love it.
However, I disappointed about it when I opened the box.
The tip of cap was crooked. I tried to fix it, but it did not work at all.
It is still crooked, so I admit to live with it. haha
Except the tip, I love it!
