  1. Hello, I was just wondering if it’s just me or do you guys have a specific pen for a specific notebook? This ink color for this pen color only? I use my pilot kakunos (M,F,EF) with colors black, gris nuage, diamine grey, respectively, for my midori notebook journal. My kawecosport (BB) in the shade earl grey for midori everyday journal. 2 Kawecosport (EF) using Vinta in the shade perya and ubi for midori and rhodia notes. Kaweco perkeo (M) using smokey grey for random scribbles and midori travel journal. Am I the only one? Lol
  2. How many clones are there of the Kaweco Sport. I would go and buy a Sport, but I have had 'issues' with their nibs & quite honestly i'd like one that takes a normal sized converter that holds the same amount as a regular 'short international' cartridge. There was the Delike Alpha, but I don't think it is made any more.
  3. Spoiler alert; my search for the ideal beginner's pen is over. Well at least for now 😅 This was a pen I got from the proprietor of one of UAE's two pen shops, Pens Corner, at the Pelikan Hub 2019 in Abu Dhabi. Though people consider this as an insanely inexpensive pen, I had to think over it for a while since my pen budget is pretty low and I am not accustomed to pens this size. People who know me well would know that I love oversized pens the most as majority of my pens are Indian oversizes in ebonite. So this pen was really a gamble, but I totally hit the jackpot with this one.
  4. Kaweco Al sport stonewashed EF nib My first review here so please be gentle. I always liked fountain pens and I have been using mine Sheaffer VFM for years. And last summer I was looking at it and decided that my Sheaffer is full of scratches and the pen was loosing bit of posses, so I have decided to upgrade to my first pen to something else. After long lurk around I have found an ideal pen for my needs of note taking which combined durable metal body, portability and options of nibs. The price was bit steeper roughly 76 USD with tax. The pen came in a lovely tin that can serve as a pen
  5. I recently picked up a Kaweco Sport, which seems to have a slight flow issue (skips and hard starts) when writing normally, but which disappear when reverse writing. Has anybody had any experience with this sort of phenomenon, and what is it likely to indicate is the underlying problem? Does this suggest it is a flow / dryness issue, for example, that could be solved by making the nib a little wetter (writing in reverse obviously produces a finer line which does not need to draw as much ink)? Thanks in advance for any advice from more experienced pen maestros...

    Kaweco Barrel Wear

    Hi! I'm in the market for a Kaweco Sport (the Guilloche has been in my mind for some time now..) but I've read that the barrel will show a ring of scratches even with careful regular use--it's an unavoidable eventuality. Can anyone post photos of how bad it will look or how unnoticeable it will be? I don't mind barrel scratching. In fact my old 78G (bought years ago) went through regular rough use: the gold paint has mostly disappeared and the plastic is noticeably duller than a brand new one, but it doesn't look horrible. Will the Kaweco Sport look horrible?
  7. Kaweco ICE Sport Black FP Review Source Kaweco sent me this pen in return for an honest review. The Smokey Grey ink cartridges were included in the box.

  10. My transparent Kaweco Sport has some ink in the inner cap and I don't know how to remove it. So I email to Kaweco Customer Service and they sent me this VDO. May be it will useful for anyone else.
  11. When I first saw the Kaweco Sport my inital impression was something along the lines of, 'who would pay so much for something so cheap looking?' I disliked everything about the design and could not see myself paying $25 for a half pint pen made of plastic that doesn't even come with a clip. There was no way that the Kaweco Sport cost much to make, so the $25 price tag struck me as extremely unreasonable. Eventually I began to see the need for a smaller, more portable pen...and of course the Kaweco Sport was one of my few options. That was when I discovered the Ice Sport. The Ice Sport may

    Kaweco Sport

    This is a quick review of a Kaweco Sport that I bought for a Secret Santa gift. So I tested it before wrapping. It's the first and only time I've written with a Kaweco pen. It was around $22 dollars. I chose a fine nib. The body is bordeaux and made of plastic. The paper is Franklin-Christoph's notepad (made from sugar cane). I used J. Herbin Lierre Sauvage, which I think is a nice, leafy green color. The pen wrote straight out of the box and was surprisingly smooth. It is smaller than my Franklin-Christoph pens around the grip section, but it was not so narrow to be uncomfortab
  14. I have three pens available to give away in what is effectively three separate PiFs. WHAT? 1. Pilot Prera, F nib, clear with smoky ends 2. Cult Pens by Kaweco, 2B nib, black & shiny metal 3. Kaweco Sport, M nib, ice green finish (with clip) Each pen is small and writes well. The Prera is the largest (least small), and the CultPens the smallest. Reviews of each are readily available. Each pen has been lightly used. Photo: the three pens up for grabs (note that the caption for the Kaweco was not written by the Kaweco Sport: The Kaweco Sport has a standard Medium nib).

  15. I was talking to the lady at the University of Auckland bookshop and she told me that they'd have the Kaweco Sport fountain pens, pencil (mechanical not lead holder) and rollerballs in stock within 1-2 weeks. As someone who prefers to purchase locally, this was great news! ~$35 for the roller ball and ~$50 (can't remember if it was 45 or 54) for the fountain pen. It comes with the clip in a metal tin. I don't think I've seen Kawecos at any other brick and mortar store in Auckland. I'm seriously impressed with the stationery range at the university bookshop, especially as far as inks and pap
  16. I've posted about this pen in a couple of threads, and have received some questions about it, so I thought I'd do a full review. I'm a fan of pocket pens. They're handy, easy to carry, and you never find yourself without a pen. I have several modern Kaweco's, and splurged on a Franklin Christoph 40 with Masuyama CI. Still, I've always wanted a piston filling Kaweco. The V12's and V16's are pretty easy to get, but I prefer the older 12G with the open nib. I saw one being sold through an antique vendor on eBay, and took a chance on it. This is what I got: http://i200.photobucket.com/al
  17. Hi guys, I want help in buying Kaweco sport fp. I am from mumbai and here no shops sell kaweco brand fps. I tried online but they also dont sell it. Please help me guys to buy this amazing fp. Thanks in advance.
  18. Hi everybody, I'm new here so I am not very sure whether I've placed this topic correctly. I hope I have, if not, please accept my apologies. Here goes the question: Would you choose a Kaweco Sport or a Hero 200? Provided (obviously) you have at least tried both. Both pens are pretty cheap (I know Jinhaos and Some Noodler's are cheaper). I've heard good things about both and I want to try some gold (or gold plate). Thanks a lot in advance for your attention. Cheers
  19. Hello, I am seriously thinking of adding a Kaweco Sport xf to my stash of pens, and I had a concern about the fact that you can only use a cartridge with it (the little bladder they sell seems no improvement to me). I have recently discovered the joys of using a converter in my various pens (piston/slider, not the bladder type), and found that the usual problems of skipping, ink drying out, or the ink coming out too fast at times, and otherwise inconsistent performance when half full or less, are greatly reduced, seem to be mostly a thing of the past. My question is whether the Kaweco Sport
  20. I have a Kaweco Sport and a Kaweco AL Sport, and I'd like to put italic replacement nibs on both of them. Is that going to work? I think I read somewhere that the replacement italic nibs cannot be put into an AL Sport. I notice that the Kaweco replacement nibs come with a section. Can you take the feed and nib out of this section and put them into the section that comes with your pen? How do you do that? Thanks David.
  21. Hello FPN!! I've had my eye on two pens for quite a while and have finally decided to go ahead with a purchase. My problem is my budget restricts me to only be able to buy one of these for now. I have to choose between The Kaweco Sport Classic and the Lamy Safari in matte black, both with fine nibs. Which one would your'l suggest I get because I really cant put my finger on which one I seem to like more. Im looking for a smooth writing, everyday pen. I may also later on want to fiddle around and fit it with a stub nib. Im hoping your'l can help me make a better decision Thanks in adva

    Am I Missing Something?

    ~six months ago I bought a fountain pen for fun, ended up loving it (started with Lamy Safari). Felt like getting a little something new for myself and recently ordered a Kaweco Classic Sport online. I did a little research to make sure that I was buying ink cartridges that would fit the pen I was buying and ended up going with J Herbin international short cartridges. I'm reaching out because these ink cartridges seem to be too long to fit in my Kaweco pen... maybe I'm missing something? Google searched compatibility to see if anyone else had this problem but it seems pretty unanimous that int
  23. Hello fellow FPN'ers It seems like the Indian online shopping site www.flipkart.com is selling Kaweco Sport Classics and what they have listed as the ICE variant (looks like a transparent demonstrator). They seem to have a lot of other Fountain Pens on sale too. The reason I'm posting this topic is because I have been trying to get my hands on a Kaweco Sport for a while now and was completely oblivious to this service Flipkart was providing. Do anyone of you have any experience buying pens off Flipkart?? Would you'll advise that I go ahead with the buy? Looking for your opinions. Im
  24. Hello FPN. I just started up a etsy shop that makes hand made fountain pen cases. The current ones I have will fit larger pens like the Vac700 and the M800, but I want to make sure what I create caters to the fountain pen community at large. With that in mind I have decided to take a page out of TWSBI's book and take a look and see what kind of needs are out there in the community. I am thinking of making a smaller case to fit the TWSBI Mini and the Kaweco Sport, and woudl like to know if the need is there. Here is a link to my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/quillquivers Take a look and let
