This is one of my first...
February 12, 2012
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.
