Roller Ball Pens
I got this Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain pen in the blue body and I absolutely love it! I'm new to fountain pens and the only fountain pen I had was a cheap, crappy Zebra pen, and an Ohto F-Lapa pen, which was too scratchy for my taste (I have gotten used to the pen though.) Anyway, I wanted to test the waters and try this pen out. When I was searching for fountain pens to buy, my first instinct was to buy this one. What attracted me was the fact that it's made in Germany and it seemed like a decent size for my small hands. Also, I've been reading the reviews here on jetpens and how this pen is really good for left-handed people. I'm a leftie, and I've been debating whether Kaweco or Lamy, but decided on this brand because I had an instinct...
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.
