Roller Ball Pens
I love this pen. I've had it for nearly a year now. It comes with me everywhere, either in a pants or shirt pocket. It's never leaked (aside from burping into the cap when I flew with it, and the ink all stayed in the top of the cap). The nib is as smooth as my more expensive/"better" pens. It's not super fine, but it's fine enough that I use it in my pocket notebooks without any trouble. It's not too wet, not to dry. It's not the prettiest pen I own, and it's not my favorite (that honor is reserved for my Lamy Studio), but it's the one that I trust to always be there, ready to write when I need it. Occasionally I think about getting a second one of these. But what's the point? This fills my needs perfectly.
Kaweco was first established in 1883 as a dip pen factory in Heidelberg, Germany. In 1971, Kaweco obtained a license to produce a line of Sport pens for the 1972 XX Olympic Games in Munich, West Germany. In 1994, H&M Gutberlet obtained ownership of Kaweco.
JetPens.com has worked directly with Kaweco since 2010 to make Kaweco products available to consumers in the US to great success. Our customers find the Kaweco Sport line of fountain pens in particular to be of great value.
In February of 2011, an article in The New York Times newspaper mentioned the Kaweco Classic line of products, praising it for its precision, modesty, clarity, and minimal fuss.
