Kaweco Skyline Sport Macchiato
This is such a great fountain pen. It's a pen that won't overwhelm newbies, but will will still delight seasoned fountain pen users.
Kaweco nailed it with this timeless, retro design. "Small in the pocket, great in the hand." It is compact- only 4.1 in when capped, but when posted extends to a comfortable length for writing at 5.2 in.
The pen is made of a durable, high-quality plastic with a screw on cap (no lips popping off in your bag with this one). This Skyline range is accented with a chrome nib and cap tip. This comes with one blue cartridge (already in the barrel of the pen- give it a wee tap to dislodge it if it doesn't come out straightaway), but you can see our offering of other ink colours here.
Fine nib. Alternative nib sizes here.
Matching clip (that looks great and you really should see) here.
Sarah's note: I'm a confessed pencil girl, but when I grab a pen, it has to be THIS one (I have the one in mint, coveting the one in macchiato). It has a really cool look to it and it writes like a dream. I bought this as a "starter" fountain pen, but honestly, I love the look and feel of it so much, I haven't looked for another. Three years and going strong.
