Kaweco Perkeo Fountain Pen Review with Pens


The Kaweco Perkeo Fountain Pen comes on a nondescript plastic bag with the Kaweco logo on it. There are  four unique colors available for the Perkeo. Pictured in this review from left to right above is the Cotton Candy, Old Chambray, Indian Summer and Bad Taste. The Perkeo has the traditional hexagonal cap like the Kaweco Sport, however, the Perkeo is slightly longer. Unique to the Perkeo, the cap and the barrel are two different colors, which creates some wonderful contrasting. The body and cap are both made from a durable plastic, and the snap on/off cap can be posted.


Ringing in at just $16.00 USD the greatest quality about the Perkeo is how affordable it is. Whether you are a first time user, or the hardcore collector, that’s a price that isn’t going to break the bank. The Kaweco Perkeo Fountain Pen does not come with a clip, however the ingenious hexagonal cap prevents your pen from rolling away into a disaster. As with most of Kaweco’s other pens, the Perkeo accepts short international standard cartridges. Also, it will accept any mini international standard converter. For those hoping for another possible inexpensive eye-dropper pen, unfortunately, the Perkeo is not advised to be converted to an eye-dropper system.


The important question to all this, however, is how does it write? We inked up the Perkeo with Kyoto Tag Nurebario Ink and put it to the test. We used the Cotton Candy with a medium nib and had a smooth writing experience. Although Kaweco is known on occasion to have dry nibs, the Perkeo laid down a nice wet line with even and consistent flow. All in all, a fantastic writing performance, and a must have for your collection.


At the end of the day, the Kaweco Perkeo Fountain Pen is another great pen from a reliable German company. We’re proud to stock it on our shelves, and hope to see many of them on yours.  Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog so that you can stay up to date with all the latest news.

    I just got a Kaweco Sport and really like it! I have to be honest. This was brand that was not on my radar. Good daily carry so far.

  2. Allen

    This is one of my favorite pens. It’s a great writer, it’s cheap, it’s light and durable. While nicer pens are relegated to my desk or a pen roll, I have no qualms just throwing the Perkeo in my bag or dropping it in my pocket. It’s always there.

    My “Bad Taste” Perkeo is inked up with Caran d’Ache Infra Red – gorgeous combo.

    Kaweco pens always intrigued me, I don’t personally own one but it is on my list. They are very interesting looking and the colors and materials are fantastic. Do you have any views on the titanium nibs?

  4. Jenn Dee

    My current favorite ink is Pilot iroshizuku Momiji….brushing away the winter blues.

    I would love to see a review of some grey inks.

    As much as I enjoy that mid-range of pens. like gold-nib pilots and platinum 3776s, I also enjoy a good value pen, and I love the wetness of the Perkeo!

  6. Luis

    I can’t pick a favorite ink! I like Kon-Peki for blue, Oxblood for red, Mass 54th as a blue/black, and still in the search for a quality black ink to add to my collection. Cheers!

  7. Karen Chuplis

    I’d love one. They can be frustrating but overall are great pens. Usually my favorite. I’d love one in Bad Taste or Candy.

  8. Jennifer Burke

    Can you review the Kaweco Special AL? Not the aluminum version of the Sport, but the longer, more narrow pen. I see it and am interested, but want to see more reviews by sellers before making a decision.

    Received the pen, and so thank you, it is much appreciated. It should be mentioned that the nib does have a little bit of flex to it, which I was not expecting. Another pleasant surprise.
