the kaweco sport is not a great writer, just warning future buyers. if you want to try it out absolutely like i did, i would suggest trying the plastic version first which is much cheaper and has same nib and feed.
This is not an especially good deal. I imagine that's why they aren't selling so well.

$62.74 after $2.75 shipping and handling at lowest price. It's $80 at gouletpens.com (https://www.gouletpens.com/kaweco-al-sport-fountain-pen-raw-fine/p/KAW-10000628) and $72.50 at jetpens.com (https://www.jetpens.com/Kaweco-AL-Sport-Fountain-Pen-Raw-Aluminum-Fine-Nib/pd/9496). On Amazon it is between $62 and $80 all of which without Prime Shipping, so plus S&H. Unless you can find it elsewhere and/or want to support your local stores, this is actually the best deal out there that I could find with a quick search.

I stand corrected. But I own all of these plus a couple more and spent approx $60.00- $65.00 for them. The last two were from Jetpens and this is about what I paid for them. So, that being said, I still think it could be a better deal. Otherwise more people would have purchased.
I have one of these from a prior drop and I think I like it better than my Lamys, which I love. I have at least a dozen more expensive fountain pens, and these are the two I always grab.
Why don't to a local retailer and buy your pens? Instead of going through a gray market purchase. A retailer will provide after sales service and it would include a warranty. Support your local retailer or they may not be there in the future.

Yes, I understand how it works. Apparently you do not. Some of the products are bought from gray market and presents the chance of not getting the real item. It is nice timing on your part since I posted that comment 34 weeks ago. Way to be on top of things. You might want to work on those typing skills and I don't appreciate the slang term.
SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL RETAILER!

Well, since I'm from Spain, sorry for the bad typing. Anyway, prove me this works under gray market, and convince me to buy from a local retailer, here in Spain, this exact model. I'm sure you cannot prove it, although it doesn't surprise me since your only way to be sure of this, is because "shipping takes so long".

The shipping on the items depends on:
-Where do you live
-When the drop ends
-How the package pass through customs in your country

And this are only some of the facts... So, yea, when you get to prove me Massdrop works under gray market, I'll believe you.
The broad nibs aren't stubs are they?

no, if you want stub nib, go for the other massdrop of the Kaweco calligraphy set.
The Brass version please. I am dying waiting for that drop to come back.
Bummer the blue fine or extra fine got sold out so fast....
If they were offering the "stonewashed" version, I would join this in a heartbeat - I have the silver with FINE nib and could definitely use another pen with the extra-fine nib for drawing. The Fine german nibs seems to be more of a Medium Japanese nib, by my observation. Also keep in mind for those with large hands that this is a very short pen - I have small hands and can hold it fine posted. Unposted it is borderline ok, but for drawing you can hold it so the end is on the palm of your hands, so kind of a nice angle for drawing (similar to how you would hold a piece of chalk to write on a blackboard - oh boy, dating myself here !) If you are writing only, and have large hands, it MIGHT be too short for you. Just saying.

I like that version, too, but my understanding is that edition is discontinued. I like my Kaweco sport, but it never quite becomes an EDC for me.
Cool! I have had the plastic version of this for years and LOVE it. Great pens. I just wish they were offering it in brass!
Does anyone know what the lowest price will be? If it goes under $50, I'd have to join.

I don't think drops ever get below the lowest listed price, in this case, the 59.99.

Thank you, Dwoehl. I didn't know that. Bummer.
I'm not knowledgeable about fountain pens at all - but I'm really loving the AL sport. It posts super well and has a very nice weight to it.

It also writes quite nicely - a bit thicker than the fine nips I'm used to (mostly metropolitans)- but not really an issue.

The Kaweco is German-made and the Pilots are Japanese. As a general rule of thumb, the Japanese nibs are a size finer than the Europeans - so a German Fine is a Japanese Medium. I like Japanese fines, so I go down to extra-fines for Kawecos.
