Kaweco Special Edition Art Sport Fountain Pen, Terrazzo


The Classic Sport range, introduced to market in 1934, broke new ground in modern design for its unique octagonal barrel and handy portable size intended for use by ‘ladies, officers and sportspeople’. Kaweco were covering all bases with their marketing of this hugely successful pen, now synonymous with the brand itself.

Originally Classic Sport pens were made from ebonite (a very hard rubber), in black and then burgundy, featuring a fine engraved pattern known as a guilloche. Today, the design remains largely unchanged - measuring 10cm when capped, for optimal writing comfort and using a modern cartridge system for practicality - now in a wide range of exciting colours and finishes. Hard wearing ABS moulded plastics, clear plastics, hand turned acrylics, stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminium, and patinated finishes are all à la carte for you to choose from.

These special edition fountain pens make use of turned and polished acrylic, a material ordinarily used to make luxury pens and other delicate objects like spectacles. The result is a dense, weighted, glossy feel in hand, as well as a beautifully unique and complex pattern.

For best comfort we recommend posting the cap on the back of the pen as intended by the manufacturer.
