Classic Kaweco Sport Fountain Pen
We first read about this superb writing instrument in the New York Times, in an interview with playwright Jon Robin Baitz, who said of the pen, “I thought it was a perfect little thing….I love its precision, its modesty, its clarity and its minimal fuss. This is the cheaper, more practical version of a Mercedes.” It has all the features we admire, starting with classic good looks and a beautifully smooth “write.” It has a gold-plated fine-point nib, the body is faceted so it won't roll, it’s lightweight (less than a third of an ounce), the material it's made from looks like Bakelite, the ink flows freely, and its only embellishment is a discreet gold “button” on the end of the cap. Pen is 4" when closed and 5-1/4" when open.
This pen is made by a German company established in 1883, a venerable name in pen circles (we can’t explain the Asian-sounding name nor the moniker “Sport”). Pen comes with a blue cartridge and we include a box of six (blue/black) refills. Additional boxes of refills also available for purchase.
Pen color: black or white.
