I was fortunate enough to get in on a group buy for the Kaweco Skyline Sport in Lagoon and Mint that was a limited edition for the City Super shop in Hong Kong. It arrived a couple weeks ago, just before my travel explosion so I am just now getting a chance to post photos of it. Its a classic Kaweco Sport in plastic but the Lagoon color is a brighter turquoise blue green than the Mint that was available in Europe and the US. The grip section of the the Lagoon model is Mint but as you can see, the cap and barrel are much brighter making the mint look almost arctic.
My model shipped with a fine nib, my favorite, and I always love the scrollwork on the Kaweco nibs.
I filled it with a crazy contrasting KWZ Andrinople from my customized laser-etched bottle (Thank you very much, Vanness Pens!)
So, really, this post isn’t much more than showing off since the pen is probably completely unavailable at this point.
It has made me aware that Kaweco is making special editions for specific markets. That means, if you are a collector of Kaweco (or potentially any other brand of pen) it is worth keeping an eye and an ear open because I suspect that this sort of trend is bound to continue. It makes specific shops a destination and creates buzz for brands by making even more collectibility with special colors or designs. The flurry of activity and enthusiasm around getting these limited Lagoon Sports was crazy. It really is about time Kaweco got into the limited color editions that Lamy and Retro 51 has been doing for so long.
