Cute as a bugs ear...and it has a beautiful Bock nib that performs very well. A very light fountain pen, nice finish, machining. Clean the pen with a dilute solution of ammonia or Dawn liquid detergent and water, rinse well(gets rid of manufacturing oil). Pat dry. Make sure your feed is lined up with the nib. Load a Kaweco or Herbin cartridge, tap the nib gently on your paper to get the ink flowing. Enjoy. Oh and the cap posts perfectly allowing a lot more length to the pen.

Great little fountain pen!

Verified Purchase
Beautiful...right out of the box. Smooth silent mechanism. The finish is spectacular. Its a fairly big fountain pen, but comfortable even in my small hands. I rinsed the nib and feed in dilute ammonia (rids manufacturing oil). Popped in a Pilot black cartridge. It writes well with minimal feedback due the the gold nib. I almost like this more than the vanishing point. Rest assured you can carry this bad boy into any meeting and no one will hear it...but heads will turn when it comes into view. Dont hesitate...get it.

pros-

*perfect finish laquer/plating
*silent mechanism
*great nib (fine)
*nice design overall
*writes well with good ink flow (rinse nib and feed first)

cons-

*It would be nice to more colors added to the range

Spectacular compact bright silver fountain pen. The first thing I did was to wash the entire pen in a dilute solution of ammonia(removes residual manufacturering oil). Rinse well. Check the nib feed alignment(the black plastic part underneath the nib, it should be centered under the nib itself). Get some good paper. Clairfontaine or Rhodia. Load up a Kaweco black cartridge. This is where you can really see how your pen will perform(on good quality paper). I love this fountain pen. It looks great in the tiny Kaweco sport leather pouch available from Jetpens also.

ENJOY! :O)

Rich black ink that has good lubrication and flow properties. Dries super fast. A very nice performer in my new black Kaweco AL Sport fountain pen. OMG! this is great with a Kaweco fine nib. A+!

Comes in a neat little Kaweco tin. Great little fountain pen. I washed the nib in soapy water, rinsed it and blew the excess water out of it, loaded up a black Kaweco cartridge, Wow! this sweet pen writes wonderfully . Its a juicy nib, with great flow and a super smooth. The finish is good. medium weight. I write unposted so the balance was perfect. Jet Pens also has some nice short international cartridges by J Herbin packed in tiny cylindrical tins that should fit the Kaweco AL Sport. They have a quite a selection of ink colors and some scented inks.

Highly Reccomended.

This is one beautiful fountain pen. Excellant quality. The nib inked up beautifully right out of the box with the Sailor ink converter. I filled it with Sailor Black Nano ink. Fine precise cursive lines. A nice introductory pen for those getting ready to make the leap into the exciting world of fountain pens.

I got little adrenaline rush when I first opened the box :o)


***Sailor is known for their fine nibs.

Beautiful smooth high quality graphite. My favorite 2mm brand. I would love to see some softer 5B and up graphite available too...but for now this is as good as it gets. Mitsubishi is outstanding. Nice dispenser also.

Solid well made leadholder. On the heavy side but very well balanced. Knock button mechanism works flawlessly with no rattle. Knurled grip is comfortable with no sharp edges. No lead play (wobble). Can be broken down to gently clean.

Lovely drawing pencil.
