Review: @Kaweco Pink Ice Sport Liquid Ink Rollerball - Medium @JetPens

Well, I cannot argue with pink. This is pink. Hot pink. Another yummy specimen sent by Sebastian at Kaweco - thank you again Sebastian. It's so much better to use a hot pink rollerball than a boring black bodied one. Now if only the ink matched...!

Kaweco ICE Sport Pink Rollerball - Medium
The Kaweco Ice Sport liquid ink rollerball pen is simply packaged, in a plastic sleeve inside a small cardboard box. At this price point and for this particular pen, it is all that's required. The box is a dark matte colour with Kaweco and flourishes on it. This box obviously doesn't meet the Keep It? cut, so into the recycling it goes, but it's a nice looking box.

The Ice Sport is small, pocket-sized, compact, and adorable. It is made of plastic. The cap is translucent hot pink and the barrel is clear. Through this you can see the ink cartridge that comes in the pen. The pen's design is very simple but I very much like it.

The ICE Sport rollerball has a medium point tip with a liquid ink cartridge. The ink is quite smooth, though it is black which I find rather boring. I left it uncapped for half a day and it didn't dry out - that was pretty impressive! The flow is decent, not too wet for a rollerball, which you don't want. It dries very quickly on normal paper - within one to two seconds. It smears a little but drops of water shouldn't spread the ink too much. It's decent ink as far as rollerballs go!

The body is strong but lightweight - something I really like about the ICE Sport series in general. I love posting the pen and writing as the pen feels so comfortable in my hand and it's perfectly balanced to write with. The plastic warms to the touch and I also love that feeling.

  • Pocket-sized and compact.
  • Great size when posted. 
  • Good ink flow.
  • Refillable.
  • Smooth.
  • Ink does not blob.
  • None to speak of.

For $21, this is a pretty economical way to get a cute, compact pen with a nice colour and a decent refill inside. Especially given that it's refillable - it's more environmentally friendly! I love the ICE Sport series and I'm happy to recommend this pen to others because of its reliability and performance, as well as its convenience. Also its cuteness.

This pen was provided by Kaweco for review. I was not compensated monetarily for this review. All opinions you read here are 100% my own!

can you get a pink ink refill?

Azizah Asgarali said...

Ooh, very good question. I'm sure there are compatible pink ink refills out there.

Yes - I have a Kaweco Lilliput and the pink sport looks wonderful. But I would really like pink ink too. :) Do you have a suggestion?

Azizah Asgarali said...

I've emailed Kaweco to find out - why don't you send me an email at so we can discuss it? I'll see if I have any refills that can fit in here as well!
