I normally avoid fine nib pens, but this pen was so highly rated I thought I
would give it a try. I am really impressed with the Kaweco fountain pens (I
also have a medium sport classic). They are light and rather small, but the
faceted cap keeps them in place on the desk (as another reviewer pointed out)
and they are comfortable in my pocket. The only negative I've found is that
full size waterman (international) refills won't fit in the short body, but the
normal "half size" refills work great.
For a fine nib, this is about the same width as a pilot medium nib. The Kaweco
is very smooth and these Classic sports are the best pen for the price I've
seen. So far this pen has flowed smoothly across a wide range of paper types
from Moleskin to loose leaf to Steno pad. Also a big buggaboo for me is
starting. I'm left handed and a lot of high price pens fail to start flowing
when I write my A's, T's, or S's. This pen, once inked starts flawlessly every
time - something that is very important to me personally.
So I highly recommend this pen. If you've never tried, or avoided a fine tip
pen before this is a great one to start with.
