It's not possible to add a converter to transaction. That must be a bug. Most reviews of converters for this pen don't recommend it anyway because of the pen's small size.

Thanks for flagging this! We've got this fixed now, so you can adda converter during checkout.

(Yeah the capacity is teeny tiny, but it's adorable. I just use a syringe to fill empty cartridge casings with my preferred ink for Kaweco Sport pens.)
Fiyahazard -- thanks for the tip. I'll give that a go and see if it works out! Cheers.
Hello Fellow Droppers,

I'm having issues with my pen. I'm getting lots of hard starts and skips. I own and use several fountain pens, including a Kaweco Fireblue Lilliput (it's an awesome pen by the way), so I'm not a fountain pen newbie, and know that this is not normal behavior for a pen of this quality. The pen writes fine once the ink is flowing, but I get frequent skips between letters and hard starts when picking it up to start writing.

Mr. Pen Addict had this post:

Not sure if this is my issue or not, but I'm not willing to do my own nib work here. MassDrop asked me to reach out to the community first before asking for a product return.

Anyone else have issues with your pen? Any simple (not involving sandpaper) suggestions?

Thanks to all!

I was not part of the drop but I do own a kaweco sport and had very similar problems.

I took out the nib and feed and made the spacing between the two a little bit larger. After this adjustment I had much better ink flow and no longer had the frequent skips but the nib did lay down more ink. Try fiddling it and see what you can do before returning. Best of luck!

P.S. You can also try ordering another nib from kaweco via some pen sites (Gouletpens or jetpens). I've heard that this has usually produce much better results.
Got mine today! Thanks Massdrop for getting it out before the holiday!

This thing is smaller than I expected and very nice. It looks like it will be a great pocket pen.

I've only written a few pages with it, but the nib was smooth and ink flowed well right out of the box. My compliments to Kaweco as most fountain pens do NOT behave that well when new!

Missed it by a day! Argh.
Any possibility you can get more blue with extra-fine Nib? Only size I am interested in.
If you guys can release more Extra Fine nib pens in Black, I'd buy one with all the bells and whistles.
I have one of these in blue, and consider it the best pocket-carry fountain pen available. It's pre worn, so I have no qualms of it getting nicked up in my pocket, it's compact, and made of aluminum, so it's not going to break. My extra fine nib is very smooth. Carry it every day in my knife pocket.
Is there any chance of seeing a restock for extra-fine nibs?
When is shipping to Mexico going to be available?
Are there any piston converters that work with this one?

No and the Kaweco converter holds very little ink. You're best off refilling cartridges.
