Kaweco Nib Sizes

Some of you may know that I am a big fan of Kaweco pens and consider myself a user and a collector. The Kaweco Sports are ideal for everyday use and it is one that I keep close at hand each and every day. I recently took a European Vacation and carried my Kaweco Skyline Sport and a Kaweco AL Sport with me to keep a log of what happened on my trip. The Kaweco Skyline is small and unobtrusive and weighs next to nothing in your pocket. Despite its size, the Kaweco Skyline Sport is robust and has the benefit of being inked with cartridges which are perfect for travel. If you are looking for a somewhat heavier Kaweco, then take a look at the Kaweco AL Sport which comes in a great range of colors and materials. I enjoy my Kaweco AL Sport Blue Stonewashed fountain pen because it has a little more heft and feels great in my hand. The stonewashed effect gives the pen a used look which is great to look at and a wonderful finish. As a collector, I am always on the lookout for a Limited Edition Kaweco and enjoy owning a couple of Kaweco Art Sports which are hand made Kaweco Sports each turned from a solid block of Italian resin. Kaweco Art Sports are beautiful to look at and are a great addition to anyone’s collection. As much as I enjoy the variety of materials that are used for the Kaweco pens, Kaweco does give you a wide range of nibs to choose from when buying a Kaweco fountain pen. Kaweco offers nibs in the following sizes: Extra Fine, Fine, Medium, Broad, and Double Broad. For calligraphers, Kaweco offers Stub Nibs in the following sizes: 1.1, 1.5, 1.9, 2.3 and Twin Steel.

KAWECO Fountain Pens and Nib Sizes

With a lineup of nibs like this, you can give your existing Kaweco Skylines, AL’s and Sports a whole new life and add some fun to your writing. If you have a Kaweco Sport of Skyline you can purchase a nib unit and remove the nib and seat it back into your pen. For Kaweco AL Sport owner,s you can simply unscrew your existing nib unit and replace it with the new nib unit. These nibs can be individually purchased from The PenThing. If you are looking to experiment with some new nib sizes for your Kaweco fountain pens, let me know. I always have some in stock and will ship! Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
