Ah I would like to add that although it's an international C/C (Cartridge/converter), my waterman converters don't seem to fit.

Thanks for the review! I've never seen this pen before... Just an aside though, it's usually not a good idea to open the slit with a blade. You can nick the slit walls which causes irreparable abnormalities in the ink flow.

Thanks for reading! :happyberet:
You're right about the blade. I Just didn't come up with anything easier. So how do you do it?

update. I have to say that with time, I find the polished metal grip increasingly annoying. I tried to depolish it but it is still much more slippery than the acryl plastic of the body.
The best I found so far is to rub sealing hard wax on the depolished steel. But honestly I wish the grip was lacquered.

I have borrowed my wife's transparent nail polish, and put a clean layer on the grip. It is not visible, and made the grip non-slippery.

jetpens. has these in stock, if they haven't sold out for us Stateside folks. Black, White and Dark Blue Demonstrator plastic Colours. The Demonstrator is an almost translucent blue, came with a free converter. Mine arrived Friday. Using it with the dreaded BSB. Jim

I just want to say thanks for your post. I was considering this pen but think I'll go for the Sport.

You are very welcome, and I think you are making a good decision. My "Student" is very seldom used due to the discomfort.

One year after the purchase, all that remains of the Kaweco Student, is the nib, which I fitted on an old piston filler. The rest of the pen went for recycling.

I am very satisfied of the (considerably adjusted) kaweco nib! :D
