Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen Review

Product Review of the Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pens

The Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen is a great EDC(everyday carry) or pocket pen. It is also a great starter fountain pen with it's relatively low price point. In this review I would like to cover what makes this pen so good and a must have in your collection.

Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen packaging review

The Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen is made from a plastic resin that is lightweight. There are just a couple branding items on the pen. On the side of the cap is engraved in gold lettering "Kaweco Sport" and on top of the cap is a gold medallion with the Kaweco Logo.

The Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen comes in a small cardboard box. If you are looking for a nice presentation such as for a gift then this is not the pen. I am not personally big on packaging and would rather the money go into the pen.

I really like the design of the Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen, not so much for the look of the pen but the functionality. It is small and compact and ideal for carrying with you on the go. The cap design makes the pen short when the cap is closed but when you post the cap on the pen it extends the length of the pen by over an inch. Without the cap posted the pen is small but the size with the cap posted makes the pen easy and comfortable to use.

Another part of the cap design that is great is the shape. The sides of the cap are octagonal rather than being round. This squared side cap design keeps the pen from rolling both with the cap on or the cap posted. Because the Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen does not come standard with a clip there is nothing to keep the pen from rolling off the desk.

Although the pen does not come with a clip included you can always pick one up for just a few bucks. The Kaweco clip comes in either chrome or gold. I would recommend the gold clip to match the nib and the logos on the pen.

Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen review

The Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen is a cartridge style pen and will take any standard universal ink cartridge although Kaweco does have their own brand of cartridges. You can add a small Kaweco squeeze converter which is just a bladder that you squeeze to draw ink into the pen. The converter is about the size of an ink cartridge and doesn't hold much ink and there really isn't room for a much larger converter because of the pen's compact size. I am sure you could easily convert the pen to an ink dropper if you wanted to though.

Kaweco Classic Sport nib reviewThe nib on the Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen is a gold colored stainless steel nib. I like the way the nib writes and for an inexpensive steel nib it writes really well. It is not real wet but it is smooth with no hard starts or skips.

Pros of the Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen
  • Small compact design. Great for EDC as a pocket pen.
  • Smooth nib out of the box.
  • Customization. Ability to add a clips, converter and interchangeable nibs.
  • Easy to disassemble for cleaning.
  • Parts interchangeable with other Kaweco Sport pens such as the AL Sport, Skyline, ICE Sport, etc.

Cons of the Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen
  • No good converter option. Squeeze converter holds little ink.
  • May be small for larger hands.

Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen Review Conclusion

The Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen makes a great pocket pen with its compact design and size. It is also a great starter pen due to its low price point. The pen is customizable with the ability to add a clip or not, change nibs or add a converter. The pen has a great design and is well thought out making it a must have pen in your fountain pen collection.

Returned pen unused. I was surprised at the very light weight of the pen, it was also very short in length, and I have other cheaper Kaweco Perkeo pens that seem more substantial than this one.

I am loving this fountain pen this is now my third and I paired it with the gold clip. The color is a beautiful deep navy blue. I’m once again loving the fine point and how smooth it writes.

The nib on this is so scratchy and most unpleasant.
Hard dry starts and ink stingy.

I purchased this pen as an everyday pen I could carry with me. I find that I use it more frequently than I otiginally believed. Excellent quality for the price.

This was my first Kaweco Classic Sport pen; it is quite small/slender. While I appreciate the screw-cap durability and functionality of the pen as well as its classic lines, the barrel feels too narrow to my grip, and the threads for the cap are a bit distracting. I will use it as a "kitchen drawer pen" but it doesn't feel natural in my hand. (Lamy Safari, at the same pricing point, does.)
