The AL Sport in a Stonewashed Blue, 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. When closed, the pen is just 108mm long. When open it’s 133mm long. The barrel is 14mm in diameter around the cap. The pen is made from tough, solid aluminium, weighing approximately 20g and features the Kaweco logo in polished silver metal on the end of the cap.
The pen comes with a polished stainless steel nib, manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg and is available in extra-fine, fine, medium, broad and extra-broad.
This particular pen is a Stonewashed Blue finish, the stressing in effect makes each individual pen in this range unique and individual. The pen is very comfortable to write with, as you’d expect from Kaweco, but what gets me is that it looks just so damn cool. I admit, I use Kaweco pens to my advantage as they always turn heads when I use them in public and even though they look fabulous, this little beauty is arguably even better looking than the others.
