More and more pen companies and pen shops are getting into the special edition game. So it comes as little surprise that limited edition Kaweco Sports are slowly making their way west. I acquired a set of special edition Kaweco Sports from Hong Kong a couple years ago (in the Pantone Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue).
Coral was the Color of the Year last year but it’s still a popular color. It’s such a warm color. Though I have a hard time deciding if the silver hardware or gold accompanies the coral color better.
Either color trim looks good with the coral, in my opinion.
Printed in matching foil on the opposite side of the cap from the Kaweco Sport logo is “Coral by Fontoplumo”. The Coral with gold hardware has gold foil lettering, the Coral silver has silver foil lettering.
I am a huge fan of the Guilloche hatching designs on the Kaweco Sports. It adds just something that makes the pens look classic and dresses up the simple plastic barrel and cap. I have a black Guilloche Sport that I used so much I rubbed the patterning off. Then I misplaced it. Thankfully, Fontoplumo luckily had one still available some years back so I was able to get another one. So, the Coral edition with Guilloche is extra special.
Are you ready to start building your own Kaweco Sport rainbow? The Coral is a great place to start.
I am giving away one Kaweco Sport Coral. Winner will get to choose whether they want the gold or silver hardware.
