Kaweco Elite -Review
Posted 13 March 2014 - 01:01
I feel as though this pen was so close to being a piston filler, with that step down on the knurled knob (at the distal end), but was changed into an infernal cartridge/converter at the last moent.
Very nice review, nonetheless.

Thanks for the review, this pen is rarely covered by reviewers and rarely gets much attention at all.
I am now replacing every word with "Iroshizuku". You're looking very Iroshizuku today! Iroshizuku to you too!

This is the old version of the Elite, with the metal section. The new one has a black plastic section. I had both in hand, the new one is more balanced compared to the old one which is a bit too top heavy for me.

YaY I've just ordered one of these today, in Fine! I'm really looking forward to using it, especially due to that nib. It just looks sooo "right".

Yip! I got one - in May 2014 - and the pen is truly lovely!!!! In a Fine nib Starts first time. Mine didn't come with a converter, I was a tad annoyed about that (for its price point), but that was soon sorted.
LOVE this pen and it was definitely worth waiting for and has more than matched my expectations. I've just found out that Kaweco do bicolour 14k nibs for these pens!!! (only medium at the moment though!)
Interesting feature: it has an internal spring in the body, so that the second small, standard, International cartridge, is easy to take out when changing them over. This pen is really very long when posted and the cap is solid metal, so I prefer to use it unposted. The larger nib is wonderful to look at, it fits the proportions of the body very well and is a joy to use. The grip section is concave and long, so its easy to find a suitable, comfortable writing hold.
I congratulate the Kaweco design team, engineers and assembly personnel for producing such a high quality instrument. Can't be more delighted with it! Thank you
