About This Product
The new Kaweco Original finally fulfills the #1 request we hear from Kaweco enthusiasts: a full-size version of the iconic Kaweco Sport fountain pen. Kaweco is synonymous with the Sport, a modernist pocket pen that's now offered in dozens of colors and options. Many fountain pen users loved the style of Sport, but wanted a longer pen that could accept longer converters, write comfortably without posting the cap, and make room for bigger nibs. Kaweco Original 250 delivers that whole wish list, all with an elegant new design that recalls the best features of the Sport.
Made from anodized aluminum, much like the classic AL Sport pens, Kaweco Original 250 feels solid but not too heavy, smooth but not slippery, with a stealth black matte finish that complements every notebook and resists fingerprints. The screw cap closes securely, and a gasket prevents any ink from leaking out. Unlike the Sport, Kaweco Original also features a built-in chrome clip that won't move around.
Under the cap, you'll find a Kaweco 250 Steel Nib, the larger and more dramatic of the two nib families offered by Kaweco. The writing widths are the same as the smaller nibs, but the larger nib and feed offer a different feel. The 250 nibs are springier than the smaller 060 steel nibs, inviting your handwriting and sketching to flow freely.
Comes with one blue cartridge and a black Kaweco gift tin.
Measures 5" capped, 4.7" uncapped. Made in Germany.
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.
