I bought these for my two brothers (an engineer and an engineering student) who
both do not share my obsession of writing instruments and notebooks. They love
this pencil so much that they won't let me get my girl cooties on it--mature
aren't they? I have the Alph-Gel Kuru Toga which uses the same rotating
mechanism, and I can't bring myself to use any other mechanical pencil.
This is one of my first fountain pens (the other is the white Kaweco Sport with
the EF nib). I bring this pen with me to lectures and lab because if I were to
lose it or have it stolen from me, it would bring me less grievance because its
only $3.30! I plan to use it as an eye dropper pen after it's ink cartridge is
This is one of my first fountain pens (the other was the disposable Platinum
Preppy with the 03 nib), which I chose over a Lamy Safari. Kaweco is lesser
known than the Lamy so it satisfies my indie complex. I preferred the Kaweco
because I could convert it into an eye dropper pen (like the Preppy) and it's
pocket size is very cute. I have filled it with Noodler's Bulletproof Black,
and both work harmoniously together in my Clairefontaine journal, Hand Book
sketchbook, and Rediform lab notebook. Its size was actually very surprising to
me, but I have very small hands so I could even use this pen without the cap on
My classmates and colleagues admired it even though they were unfamiliar with
fountain pens (we're all USA residents).
The white and gold look very elegant and beautiful; my only qualm about its
design is that while capped and not in use, it looks like a feminine product. If
this would really bother you, I suggest buying the gold pen clip to more
visually define the white Kaweco as a pen.
I ordered 9 of these colors separately a few days ago just to try the pens out
(I'm very cautious about going all out just based on a few reviews). I received
them today and was surprised at how nicely these pens write. The ink isn't as
pigmented as some inks are, but I like them that way.
As for erasability, the pens are practically perfect. It depends on the paper
written on, too.
