expanded the line even more.
making the nib wetter" and it was much better. Easy peasy. It would be a shame for this beautiful pen with this lovely broad nib to be DRY. Ink flow was good, the nib was smooth with no feedback. I used a Kaweco ink cartridge in the pen as I actually really like the paradise blue ink. Performance is on par with the other Kaweco Sport pens; comfortable, satisfactory.
The Sport Art is light and very comfortable, being a compact pen. It's fairly small unposted, so I prefer to use it posted, but it posts wonderfully, deeply, snugly, and it's delightful. Mmmm. I love the feeling of the acrylic and how it warms up in my hand. The section is small but suitable for my grip and the threads do not get in the way.
It's a great fit. If you have really large hands, it may be too small, but since it posts, it becomes a useable pen for most!
- Beautiful finish.
- Compact, portable.
- Interchangeable nib units.
- Can be used as an eyedropper (if you're brave!).
- Nib performs reliably and consistently.
- Clip available separately, if you need one.
While I'd love to suggest you go get one of these amber Sport Art pens, it's discontinued, so you may have a tough time finding this particular finish (although I do know of someone who is about to sell theirs...). There are a few other beautiful finishes available though. If you are looking for a compact, portable pen, the Kaweco Sport series is a great choice, and if you're willing to splurge a little, you can get a beautiful acrylic body!
