  1. When you think about pocket pens chances are the first name that comes to your mind will be Kaweco Sport. The size ant the shape of this pens is almost iconic and the Sport series is rather popular in the community. I think that it's second most popular fountain pen on polish fountain pen boards (the other one being Lamy Al-Star). Personally I have five Sports that I use mostly for ink reviews / tests. I don't think they're particularly well made but I enjoy compact sice and possibility to use them as eyedroppers and the ease with which I can clean the pen and change the ink. Also, they're quite handy. So far I've managed to accumulate five modern Sports: one demo Classic, two Skylines (burgundy and white), one AL and Seitz-Kreuznach special edition called Kognac. I find the color of the barrel very nice and it's quite possible others will find it interesting as well. The main thing to remember before buying new Kaweco Sport is the fact that you get what you pay for. It's cheap pen and it's cheaply made. It doesn't ooze quality. Once you don't expect miracles you'll be able to enjoy what this pen has to offer. Packaging The packaging is nothing special, really. The pen comes in a simple cardboard box and it's protected by a plastic sleeve. Once you take the pen out you'll find one blue cartridge inside the body. Kaweco doesn't add converter or a clip to their budget pens - you have to pay for them some extra dollars. Overall impressions The design is rather simple and rather unique. Personally I find older Sport much nicer and shapely. There's not a lot of adornments on a plastic transparent body except for engraved Kaweco Sport logo and metal medallion on top of the cap. While I don't really like gold trim I think in this case it fits the barrel very well and looks pleasant to the eye. The barrel is transparent and for me it's a plus. The cap is screw cap and can be puszed to post on the pen. Some people may find it comfortable to write with the Sport uncapped but I'm not one of them. Actually it's the only fountain pen that I use posted. The pen is really tiny when uncapped. The cap stays on the end of the barrel securely and it requires applying some force to pull it straight off. Sadly as the plastic used to make the pen is of low quality some scratches on the barrel appear fast with time and use of the pen - after two or three weeks of writing with the pen little and medium lines became visible on the barrel in the place where the threads touch when the pen is posted. I can live with them as Sport is for me mostly utilatarian pen and I don't find much aesthetic value in it. Nib Ink: J. Herbin Eclat de Saphire, quote from great book that I highly recommend: Senlin Ascends by Josiah Bancroft As I've mentioned I have five Sports - three with broad nib, one with double broad and one with medium. My first Sport had stunning buttery smooth nib that I find amazing after three years of abuse. Sadly the other three nibs were dry and / or scratchy out of the box and each of them needed some micromesh treatment in order to write the way I like it. People say Kaweco improved their quality control but in my experience nothing changed. One month ago I've bought another Skyline and the nib was very dry and unpleasant to use. I needed to work on it to make it tolerable. That's a shame, really. Medium nib in this particular SE fountain pen was too dry to my taste and needed some tuning as well. At the moment it writes well, but in my opinion Kaweco should really check their nibs more often. Filling system I hope one day we'll be able to see modern and reasonably priced Kaweco Sport piston-filler. At the moment though once you get the pen you can choose three options of filling it: Cartridge - international cartridge can always be filled with syringe with the ink of your choice. Personally I rarely use cartridged. Kaweco converter - you have to pay for it and, frankly, it sucks. Eye-dropper - this is the way I fill my Sports (except fot AL Sport that's made of metal and that I use it with cartridge). Just put some silicone grease on the threads and fill the barrel of your pen with ink. During three years of using Kaweco Classic Sport as eye-dropper I have never experienced ink leaking. Dimensions Capped: 105 mm Uncapped: 100 mm Posted: 132 mm Summary After reaing this review some of you may think I'm not thrilled with the pen but it's not the case. I'm huge Kaweco Sport fan but I don't think it's a great pen. It has quite few drawbacks and it's good to mention them and know about them before actually buying one. The pen is cheaply made, there are quality issues with the nibs that as I see it weren't adressed by producer. On the other hand when someone asks me for cheap fountain pen recommendation I have three recommendations and Sport is one of those. It's perfect for every day use, it's comfortable, handy and light. If you're lucky and there's no baby-bottom on the nib it writes very well. Also metal version that I may review in the future if, for me, perfect every day pen. As fot Seitz-Kreuznach special edition I really enjoy it's color and I'm glad to have it among other Sports. It's not high-end pen and the materials aren't most durable or special. On the other hand it's a convenient and comfortable workhorse pen taht, when tuned, writes very well. I plan to acquire another Sport soon - it'll be orange AC Sport with broad nib. It looks simply stunning.
  2. So, our friends from SEITZ-KREUZNACH have release a few new colors: Lime GreenIndian SummerCognacCinnamon Brown Actually, there is a fluorescent yellow, but since I am not interested in highlighter inks, I didn't bother with that. They have also release a new bottle size the extremely cute 30ml ... similar to the Kaweco bottles Lets start with some pics... On Red n'Black Paper on Rhodia on Tomoe River My thoughts: I like them all. Lime Green: Very similar to Caran D'Ache Delicate Green. Les saturated than Robert Oster Lime Green. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.Indian Summer: Goes down very bright, dries with a reddish tone... Kind of Terracota. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.Cognac: This is my color. I do like these kind of hues. This one is very direct, no green undertones or gold... just a nice light brown. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.Cinnamon Brown: Another favorite one, I do like my browns. No red undertones, it looks richer than Cognac. Wet flow, no show through or bleed through.I did not see much shading, but in honestly my pen is a wet flex nib. Maybe in a drier nib. (Correction: I was expecting much more shading.. Cognac and Cinnamon are my favorite. I did not see sheen, not even on Tomoe) Hope you enjoy the pics.. C.

    Transatlantic Crv

    My second CRV ever. Thank you, amberleadavis! I'm glad I got to see so many inks. I had never seen any of them on paper in person. These are not all the pages, I'm trying to come up with things to doodle in the other pages. Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green and Pelikan 4001 Dark Green.

    Seitz-Kreuznach Pacific Blue

    I received this ink in a bundle of samples, and I always feel I should give the ink a review even though I don't own a bottle. Perhaps someone else will enjoy it, and give it a try. This is the Seitz-Kreuznach Pacific Blue. They have a number of inks and are a German company. They don't seem to be carried by any of the US retailers, online or otherwise, but they do have an Amazon shop. I don't know how readily available they are in the EU, but again they seem to have a German website from which to order. They supply many other things than inks. The inks come in 3.38 oz flasks, and in 1 oz bottles similar to Pelikan 4001. The flasks are quite economical at $14.50, so under $5 per ounce; the one ounce bottles are not as economical at all. At Amazon there are 20 or so individual inks available in the "Colors of Nature" series, and some are even available as cartridges. Pen: Edison Premiere (F-steel) Papers: MvL=Mohawk via Linen, TR=Tomoe River, Hij=Hammermill 28 lb inkjet, Rhodia=Rhodia 90g ivory. The color here reminds me of the inks often called "washable blue". This is quite nice I think, but not super-saturated, which is OK by me. The ink is not water resistant at all. In Cyber6's review this ink appears more of a blue-violet. So quite paper-dependent on how it appears. There are times when I think it's going to be a different color, but then in the end it appears basically like the other writings of this ink. Mostly a single blue dye, but there appears to be a hint of a violet in the mix.

    Seitz-Kreuznach Palm Green

    I received some samples, and some of this ink was included. Based on comments in some other reviews most people seem to hate this color. I can't say it's a favorite of mine, but the shading isn't half bad, and there's some subtle red sheen outlining going on on TR paper. Definitely not the color of a palm tree. The handling for the ink is perfectly fine. It's not water-resistant at all. The ink was fine on better papers, but on the inkjet paper there was quite a bit of spread, and a fine wrote like more than a medium. The ink is quite bright and luminously green. It makes Ishida bungu's Hakodate yama look mellow and sedate and pleasing, which I of course think it is anyway.
