The deep black acrylic and gold-plated hardware give this pen it's beautiful vintage look. It's fun to see how these small details make this pen look completely different than the modern-style AL-Sport!
The Sport pens from Kaweco are known for their simple, yet elegant and intriguing design. They are small when capped, but long when you post the cap. Making it a great travelling companion. The design with the oversize cap is something you either love or hate, I perfonally love the form factor of this pen (which explains the fact that I have quite a few of them in my collection!).
The acrylic is very nice to hold, it has a smooth, polished finish, and it feels warm in the hand (and did I mention that it is also beautiful to look at!?)
The integrated clip also drastically impoves the functionality of this pen, making it much easier to carry it around in your shirt pocket! Plus it looks nice, it adds a bit of extra detail to the pen.
Something I didn't like about this pen, and any acrylic pen in general really, is that the shiny surface is very, VERY prone to scratches and scuffmarks. It's virtually impossible to keep it in a scratchless condition, even when you are very carefully like me!
My personal advice would be to stick with finer nibs, like EF or F, or a Medium. But if you really like Broad nibs yourself, you might want to try it out anyway, it might suit you more than it did suit me!
Overall, the Kaweco Luxe Sport is a great little pen, with a beautiful vintage-like appearance. The only real downside is probably it's price! As with the ART Sport (which is also made out of acrylic), it tends to sell for around 110 USDollars (Approximately 90 Euros). Which isn't a cheap price at all. But you do get a very nice pen for that kind of money!
Note: this pen was sent to me by Kaweco, only to try it out and write this review. And I was in no way influenced in the making of this review, the opinions shared in this review is completely my own!.
