About This Product
Kaweco Student is a refined, comfortable fountain pen for getting things done. Moderate in weight, with a thick resin body and a metal grip section, Student's center of gravity is close to the paper, making writing easy. The screw-on cap keeps ink out of your pocket, and a strong metal clip is built in.
Each Kaweco Student comes standard with a Kaweco Classic Steel Nib, a springy, consistent German nib that's easy to use and maintain. We have sold, serviced, and used Kaweco steel nibs ever since we first opened, and we recommend them heartily for everyday writing, correspondence, note-taking, and drawing.
But if you'd like to make this classic pen into a luxury item, we can install Kaweco's finest nib: the 14k Gold Bicolor Nib, elegantly handcrafted from white and yellow gold. These nibs are hand-ground and perfectly tuned by Kaweco's artisans in Germany, and their quality and feel are a world apart from standard steel. Softer, with more line variation and a much smoother feel, Kaweco gold nibs are a splurge you won't regret.
Each Kaweco Student is packaged in a Kaweco gift tin with an instruction pamphlet and a Kaweco sticker. One blue ink cartridge is included inside the body of the pen. All other accessories, like converters and additional ink, are sold separately.
Measures 13 cm (5.11") with cap on.
WHY BUY IT HERE?
When you choose St. Louis Art Supply for any fountain pen over $25, one of our expert technicians hand-checks and adjusts the nib, using high-powered magnification to ensure that the tines are perfectly aligned and there are no manufacturing defects. If necessary, we also use a superfine abrasive to remove any stray metal that can impact the smoothness of your nib. Finally, we clean the pen with our house pen cleaner and make sure that no fibers are stuck in the nib.
This intensive quality-control process offers you peace of mind that other retailers can't match. If you've ever bought a fountain pen from Amazon, you may have noticed that some reviews say it is smooth and others say it is scratchy. The reason is that they do not look at the pen before shipping it out. As a specialized shop with highly trained staff, we go the extra mile to provide a polished experience for every customer.
Look for our green "Tested OK" stamp on your packing slip. It's our way of letting you know that a real person checked your new pen and made sure it's perfect.
