There are few pleasures so immediate as writing with a good fountain pen. Kaweco created the diminutive Classic Sport in 1935 and it has been crowned a design gem in the decades since. The nib is a delight to write with and the oversized octagonal cap swallows the pen’s body when closed so it fits neatly into a pocket; when added to the barrel, it creates a full length pen.  This AL Sport version comes in lightweight, hand-finished aluminium.
