The German-based company Kaweco has a long history - over 130 years - of producing excellent writing implements. The Classic Sport Skyline Fountain Pen closely follows the original 1935 octagonal design - 'Small in the pocket, large in the hand'. The oversized cap arrangement creates a small closed pen but a full-length open pen.
Closed, the pen is just 105mm long. Open it is 133mm long. The pen barrel is 14mm in diameter (around the cap). Made from tough but exceptionally lightweight ABS macrolon plastic, the Skyline features the Kaweco logo in chrome-cultured metal on the end of the cap. It has a polished stainless-steel nib, manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg. It comes with a gift box - so would make a great present. Kaweco Sport fountain pens are refilled with standard international ink cartridges, such as those made by J Herbin or Kaweco.
