The $15 Kaweco...

Do we really need a plastic Kaweco?

Kaweco thinks we do. Aside from the entry-level price the PERKEO stands out with some unusual, and unusually-named, colorways.

I kinda like the Bad Taste. Actually, I like them all, in a not-really-my-cup-of-tea sort of way. However, I wouldn't bet on any of them until I get to see them in person. Judging by some actual photos online the colors don't look much like what you see here.
Which one do you like?

Also keep in mind that you can mix-and-match the caps and bodies.

I kinda like bad taste.... goes with my cooking 😂😂😂. Indian summer is appealing in some photos, not so much in others. I’ve probably said this a zillion times... but, if you like to have some pens on hand to pass along to folks that would like to try a fountain pen, the price point isn’t bad. Also, since I donate and maintain fountain pens for a classroom of special needs students, the grip would likely benefit a number of students who struggle with finger position and prehension. Odd as the colors may be, they seem suited to a middle to high school aged population. At the right price, I’d be willing to try a few. Everything has a place and there’s a place for everything 😉 Has anyone had the chance to test drive one of these pens ?. Curious how the nib compares with a Kaweco Sport/AL Sport etc ?

My significant other has an Indian Summer, and we think it's great. All of my pens have clips though (I like to put them in my pocket), so I'll regrettably have to pass on these (maybe that's a good thing ☺)

I really like Indian Summer, though my 2nd choice would be Old Chambray. If these didn't have that tragic 'put your fingers here' moulded section, I'd pick one up for sure... But there will be many who love the grip, and the nib can't fail to be more exciting than a Lamy Safari.

I’m curious, what is it about the moulded section that you don’t like?

Are the nibs swappable for the Alsport?

They are not swappable. The Perkeo uses a standard no. 5 nib while the Sport series (as well as the Dia2, Allrounder, Liliput, and Special) uses a modified (shorter) no. 5. The Pencilcase Blog has a photo of both nibs side by side. I have also tried to swap them, to no avail.

The Old Chambray would have gone well with the original Bondi Blue iMacs

I'm personally quite sold on the Indian Summer colorway. It just has that look about it, you know?
