The Kaweco Student does not compromise style as the collection contains the elements of being a simple and extremely practical pen. These pens are made in Germany and are created from high-quality acrylic and metal parts. To be specific, the pens are made of injection-molded polished acrylic as well as chrome plated brass. The Student collection features the same classic elegance that has distinguished Kaweco pens for over a century worldwide.
This is a very well-made pen. The nice glossy black resin with silver clip and accent are very classic looking. The pen has a very nice weight to it. However, with the cap posted i... view moret is a little top-heavy, so the writing comfort is not ideal when posted. The grip section is shiny metal that is a little too slippery, but the diameter of the grip section is perfect - not too thin or too thick. The cap screws on very smoothly and easily and posts securely. I love the silver Kaweco logo on the end of the cap. I can confirm this pen can use a Pilot V5 RT liquid ink refill with no issue, and the Pilot G2 gel refill should work as well. A very nice pen with fairly minor flaws. view less
