One of my first fountain pen loves was Kaweco fountain pens. When I was given the opportunity to get a limited edition Bungubox June Bride Something Blue AL-Sport, I said yes immediately. I didn’t know what it would cost with the premium and currency exchange and shipping but I threw caution to the wind and bought it.
The pen came in a specially stamped black tin box with the BunguBox logo and the “June Bride Something Blue” name on the lid. The type face leaves something to be desired but that’s the designer in me talking.
Inside the tin is the pebbled finished turquoise aluminum Kaweco which is a gorgeous color and stamped in white matte foil or silkscreen is the same type “June Bride Something Blue”. Also included is a piston cartridge converter. This is the first time I’ve gotten one of these from Kaweco so I’m crossing my fingers that its more efficient than the squeeze converters.

I purchased the fine nib but I have yet to ink up the pen. I have so many other Kaweco Sport pens that this one has made its way into the “collector” category at the moment rather than into the “user” category. Have I become that kind of pen collector?
