I am looking at buying a pocket pen and Kaweko has the Sport and Lilliput that look pretty good. I have a Parker Sonnet gold tipped medium nib which I love writing with (I write lightly). I am rather liking the look of the Liliput but I have a duple of questions: Do Kaweko use the same nibs for both the Sports and the Liliput? How do the gold-plated Sonnet and Kaweko nibs compare? Do the Kaweko broad nibs write any smoother than the medium nibs? Are the medium and broad nibs on the Sonnet and the Kaweko the same?

Hi,
Yes I believe the liliput and the sport use the same nib

The broad might be slightly smoother than the medium, as you go up in nib grades things get smoother, provided the nib is not scratchy or misaligned to begin with.

As for the sonnet, I've never used one, but my guess is that its nib will not be interchangeable with Kaweco.
