Kaweco AL sport ballpoint pen review
(This is the third out of four Kaweco pen reviews)
I'll keep it short, just like this pen!
I wouldn't reccomend getting one of these, I'm sorry Kaweco! I really like their fountain pens, but that's it, their ballpoint pens aren't my favorite!
The first problem: it's waaaaaaaay to short. Whereas the fountain pens would become regular sized when you post the cap, this one obviously doesn't have a cap. So it stays short, at about 10.5 cm/ roughly 4 and a bit Inches. Which is a little uncomfortable to hold.
Secondly, It uses D1 refills from Kaweco. And I'm affraid they aren't nearly as good as the ones in the Lamy accent multipen.
But why would you buy this pen anyway? Not to have a daily writer I guess! The only reasons I could think of are these:
-Having a complete set (fountain pen and ballpoint pen)
-For quickly jotting down notes.
-To get rid of excess money!
