Kaweco AL Sport Fountain Pen - Stonewashed Blue
The premise is simple, take the popular AL Sport and stonewash it like you would a pair of jeans. That's right, take a perfectly good pen and throw it in a giant industrial washing machine with a bunch of rocks. The result is a writing instrument that looks as though it has been well used over the years. Creating the finish in this way also means that no two pens are the same - the pen you buy will vary from the image above, perhaps by a little, maybe by a lot.
This pen will arrive scratched and marked with a slightly rough feel to the finish; if you like to keep your pens pretty then this probably isn't one for you.
Matt blue stonewashed finish with polished stainless-steel nib.
The AL Sport closely follows an 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. Closed, the pen is just 108mm long, open 133mm long. The barrel is 14mm in diameter (around the cap).
Pocket clips are optional, and not supplied with the pen.
Made from tough, solid aluminium, weighing approx. 20g. Features the Kaweco logo in matt silver metal on the end of the cap.
Polished stainless-steel nib, manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg. Available in fine, medium, broad, extra-fine and extra-broad.
Uses short international standard cartridges.
Supplied in a Kaweco gift tin.
