I need some help!

My Mother has fixed her eyes on my metallic green Kaweco Sport, suggesting (actually, telling me) she would like it for Mother's Day. Now, I love my mother, and I would give her not only the shirt off my back but also my green Kaweco, but I'd rather get another one so we can both carry one of these little pens around.

So, if you have one or more of the metallic green Kaweco Sport, or any other color of the basic model (not the AL or other more expensive ones), shoot me a PM and we'll see if a purchase can be worked out. Alternatively, I have a posting in the wtt board with some pens I'd be willing to trade. In that case, maybe a trade could be worked out.

Thanks, DAVID

I received a very kind offer from a great FPNer with whom I've done some business in the past, for a beautiful Kaweco Art Sport model. Unfortunately, that is probably too nice, as I know my mother will probably throw the pen in her purse and use it fairly roughly (not like a trucker, mind you, just not gently :) ).

For that reason, the plastic model is best, and while I prefer the metallic green color of which quite a number were sold here last year, I will consider any color.

Thanks, DAVID

Thanks Edub, I am really hoping for a metallic green or some other color besides black, but that is certainly a last resort if nothing else becomes available. :happyberet:

Thanks, Bob, I'm a regular customer of JetPens (and of about every other pen company, it seems). What I am looking for specifically is a Sport with the metallic green cap and body, no longer produced. Had to ship mine to my mother, bless her, as she clearly identified That Pen as one she wanted. And I so liked it, alas. Now I would like a replacement, if it can be found.

Thanks for the suggestion. David
