The sporty and compact look of these fountain pens transcend time and are just as attractive today as they were when they were first created years ago. Each pen is made of high-quality plastic, and is compact when capped (4.1 inches long) but very comfortable when posted (5.2 inches long). Thus the Kaweco slogan "Small in the pocket, great in the hand".

Made in Germany, the pen features a screw-on cap for extra security, a chrome-plated steel nib, and a metal Kaweco logo on the cap tip.

One blue short international ink cartridge is 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.

I really like the design of this pen. As a pocketable fountain pen, I would be hard pressed to improve it. Unfortunately, it does not write well at all. Upstrokes are nearly completely void of ink, what ink it does lay down is light and difficult to read. I understand that many will read this and state that I need to tune the nib. I believe it should work out of the box. I am not expecting it to write like a gold nib or to have magical properties, but I have other pens at this price point which worked correctly out of the box. Color me disappointed.

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.

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?

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!
