AC Sport Carbon fountain pen comes in very cute packaging that I very much like. It is nestled inside a pretty Kaweco tin container, inside a molded plastic sleeve covered in felt. There is space in the mold for another pen as well. The pen is safe in the tin. This tin makes the Keep It? cut. I use my other one to hold ink cartridges.
Kaweco AC Sport carbon fountain pen is a pocket sized pen. The pen combines solid matte finished aluminum and carbon fiber, presenting a very sleek and cool look that I love. It looks somewhat 3D.
The Kaweco nib is small and cute and is the perfect match for this pen. Well, it would probably look cool as a black nib, but this steel nib looks good too. I was itching to try it out because it's a double broad. Yum.
double broad for my own broad nib Ice Sport because this nib is delicious.
international short cartridges but the Kaweco squeeze converter fits them as well.
The Kaweco slogan is "Small in the pocket, great in the hand" - AND IT IS. The AC Sport carbon feels great in hand - it is smooth and matte but not slippery after writing for awhile. Despite its small size, it has a nice weight to it and I love to write with it. And I love to hold it. And roll it in my fingers. I wouldn't put a clip on it.
- Sleek and attractive pen.
- Nice and comfortably weighted in hand, especially for a pocket sized pen.
- Very nice, smooth double broad nib.
- Great detailing.
- Black powder coated finish is easy to scratch.
Oh dear. If you can spare the $122.50, can take care of its finish, and you don't mind compact pens, GET IT. Oh and try out the double broad nib. I heart this pen - lovely appearance and feel, and the double broad nib captured my heart with its divine self.
This pen was provided by Kaweco for review. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. All opinions here are 100% my own, and are only influenced by the coolness and extreme sleekness of the pen.
