First designed in the 1930s, the German-made Sport is a compact, reliable pen with an excellent vintage-meets-contemporary look. We highly recommend this pen - the quality is excellent, it’s durable and it’s a little bit of pen-design history.
The pen is very compact when capped – at 10.5cm it slips easily into a pocket or purse. When the cap is removed and ‘posted’ on the end of the barrel it extends to 13.3cm, a comfortable length for writing.
This pen takes standard international cartridge refills such as Kaweco or J. Herbin, or you can use the Kaweco squeeze style converter.
The AL Sport is one of the best of the Sport range. The barrel is polished by hand so it feels smooth and light. It has a screw cap and a stainless steel, iridium-tipped nib made by the Bock family of Heidelberg, Germany. These nibs are famous for their consistency. An iridium tip protects the nib from abrasion by contact with paper.

- Wonderful! Review by flexnib
- This pen has the usual great Kaweco nib - smooth and lovely to write with. But what makes it special is the "raw" finish - it takes on all the wear and tear of being an everyday pen (as mine is). This makes it unique to its owner. If you like your writing implements looking pristine, this pen may not suit you. (Posted on 12/07/2015)
