Kaweco Squeeze

The Kaweco Classic Sport Fountain Pen is one of the most popular choices for the entry-level fountain pen. It's small and compact, super durable and comes at a good price. The Al Sport is the more expensive version of the pen, and you might wonder if it's worth the extra money...

Even though it fits international short cartridges, and therefore would also use any converter that fits these cartridges, the extra compact body of the pen meant that there was no converter available.

Kaweco has just released a squeeze converter to fit both the Sport and Al Sport, so you can use bottled ink with both pens.

Of course there will be a difference in price as well. The Al Sport is a much more expensive $74.00 and the Sport is $23.50. The difference comes in the material of the pen (metal versus plastic), but will not have any difference in the performance of the nib.

So is it worth spending more money on the Al Sport than the Sport? Both pens are compact, will write the same and are very durable. If you like the style of pen, you can't go wrong with either.

Most people who pick the Sport:
- like the price
- want to convert it to an eyedropper
- specifically want a demonstrator or other colour

Most people who pick the Al Sport:
- like the weight of the pen in their hand
- prefer the silver finishes over the gold
- like metal over plastic

I’ve noticed that the bottom works for touch screen s. I wondered why it’s not mentioned – it’s kinda strange using aluminum on a screen. Anyone know about this?
