First designed in the 1930s, the German-made Kaweco Classic Sport is a compact, reliable pen with an excellent vintage-meets-contemporary look. We recommend this pen as seriously good value for money: 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.
The Classic Sport 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.
