I am in the market for an every day carry pocket fountain pen to be carried in the pants pocket with keys. I read a quote many years ago in Popular Photography magazine something to the effect of: "What is the best camera?....the one you have with you." In that same spirit, I don't always have my work bag, pen case, or desk with me. I want a pen to keep on my person at all times without worries. After researching, the Kaweco Sport seems to be what I am looking for. I LOVE the look of the aluminum AL Sports (especially after earning pocket-worn status), but I cant justify the triple price over the plastic version, at least not yet since I've never owned a Kaweco. I'm just curious how the plastic versions in various colors earn a patina over time when carried with keys, etc. Also curious if anyone has attempted a satin finish on a plastic sport using sandpaper, scotchbrite pad, etc.? Pictures of your beater pens please!
If anyone has a well used Sport they want to part with, I'm in the market...prefer manly colors, chrome trims, and extrafine nibs.
