The double bold nib is flawless, writes like a skate on ice, very wet and lovely.
I like this pen very much! It isn't quite as smooth a nib as my TWSBI Eco, but it's cute and works great. I love the dark olive color.
Note: the converters are finicky. The Monteverde International Mini converter almost fits, but doesn't stay in place. The Kaweco converter does fit, but it takes a ton of force to get it into place the first time, (I had to put it on the desk and jam it down) after that it's okay.
I myself like a longer pen, so when I first received the Kaweco in my monthly InkBox, I was a little skeptical, but ultimately surprised. To my delight, the shape of the pen is fantastic for holding the pen and has not hindered my ability to write fluidly. I wish the ink barrel was bigger, but this only affords me the ability to use other inks more regularly. The nib glides on paper whether I am writing in 'cursive' or printing. I like it so much that I purchased another!. I am a huge pen connoisseur and Kaweco is a must in my collection.
When I first unboxed the pen, I was surprised at how lightweight it was. It felt a little, well, cheap for a $30 pen. However, I do like the nib a lot. It’s EF like I like and writes smoothly. It also requires a specialized converter, which is a minus to me as well. But after Using this pen for a while, I don’t regret the purchase. The metal barrels would probably feel better but not worth the extra $$.
