Hmmm. Got notified that this drop was cancelled, as pen is on back-order. Just ordered one from a popular pen site for $98. Just to be clear, I don't feel burned, just a little sad %^).

I bought the Al version for my girlfriend a couple of years ago. This is a good price for the steel version, as they don't seem to be easily available in the States. My intent is to use the pen with a blunt hypodermic into a reused cartridge as my fill method. If I become very brave, I will try fire blueing this as an art experiment.

It also costs $1600 vs $87 for this pen for the far more useable stainless steel version.

Interesting. I assumed it wasn't stainless since it doesn't say 'stainless' anywhere in the description besides stating that the nib is stainless. But if it develops a patina it must not be a "true" stainless (like a 304L or 316L), it must be some stain-resistant alloy similar to what's used in some knives. D2 is a good example, it doesn't rust exactly but it does patina. Can you post a pic of one of yours showing the patina?

LOL You really do baffle me so..... "Stainless does not patina, I have no idea why people are talking about this." -Spokes 30 "These pens are stainless steel and will darken over time which is called patina." - Spokes30 "...but they will patina which is rather nice." - Spokes30 And once again, throwing around your credentials as an engineer....you'd think you should know that both rust and patina are forms of oxidization. And that even "Stainless" can, sometimes quite easily, get active (red/orange) surface rust. "In the folding knife world saying just steel also means stainless steel" I mean, seriously, where do you come up with this stuff?? 🤣🤣🤣 If I see just "steel" stamped on a blade, I'm making no assumptions about it being stainless. The only assumption I'm making is that I definitely should not buy that knife. I hope everyone enjoys the pens, but this just made me scratch my head in wonder, so much so that I just had to post a "wtf?" reply 🤯

I would not understand why anyone would want sterling silver, it will tarnish with the acid of one's hands in minutes. Stainless Steel is a far better choice for this use.

...but it polishes out very easily. Sterling silver pens have been around for a long time and very collectible, but this one I’m afraid the sharp edges on the cap will not hold up well under frequent use.

You will be polishing more than writing. If you like to put up with this then go and buy it for $1600. I will stick with stainless steel, a far better material for this purpose. I like to use my pens.

Goulet Pens does not have this pen so how can it be cheaper there? This is a stainless steel pen, not aluminum. I have no idea why Kaweco does not write “stainless steel” on the pen, it does not help them. Stainless does not patina, I have no idea why people are talking about this.

I have two of the Sports, they are not spun stainless steel. They are machined and then a surface finish put on them. I am a mechanical engineer and very much know what each looks like. Way too heavy for being spun. These are not lightweight pens.

According to Wikipedia: Kaweco opened subsidiaries in BerlinParisZurich and Vienna, as well as agencies in many countries all over the World.[2] A 1911 catalog shows a wide range of fountain pens and filling systems. Here it was mentioned for the first time that Kaweco is a pocket fountain pen for ladies, officers, and sportsmen. It is the birth year of the Kaweco Sport.  ...and from the company web site: 1971 Kaweco purchases a license for the XX. Olympic Games and launches the Sport Set with a special jewelry pendant. Especially insurance companies value the Kaweco Sport as a means of advertisement.
