Kaweco is a German company that has been creating quality pens and pencils since 1883. Their brand has become an enduring global classic that represents high quality stationery that's durable and fun to use.
Geologists traditionally use fountain pens and/or Rapidographs in the field. I have used fountain pens for over 30 years. During that time, I have cast about to find the best pen for daily use. The most expensive pen is not always the best pen. The Kaweco Sport is a great example of this.
First of all, the Kaweco is inexpensive enough to use with out worry. If you leave your $400 Rotring 600 in store or someones office... youre not likely to get it back. With a Kaweco - it’s not a worry. A common problem with fountain pens is that the cap comes off and the ink empties into your pocket. The Kaweco has a cap that screws on. This is a huge advantage. Moreover, the cap and pen form a wonderfully small package. You can carry it in the front pocket of your blue jeans with no problem. It has an octagonal cross section that prevents it from rolling away - this is really helpful for those of us who work outside where level surfaces are the exception.
The pen comes with a standard size cartridge, however Kaweco also sells a “Mini Converter” (a piston in a cylinder that lets you use bottled ink) that is inexpensive. Part of the fun of using a fountain pen is keeping a variety of liquid inks on hand to suit the mood or message you want to convey with your writing.
For what its worth, I highly recommend these practical and well designed pens.
