Fountain Pen Review: Kaweco Sport Cognac for Galen Leather

Galen Leather had a custom Kaweco Sport created in a translucent dark orange called Cognac. The pens include custom “Galen Leather” gold foil stamping and gold nibs. Galen Leather packaged the pens in a custom box with a custom sleeve printed with fun graphics.

Aesthetically, Galen has made the packaging for a Kaweco match the rest of their branding.

Inside, the pen is encased in foam inside to protect the pen in its journeys. The paperboard outer box is totally reusable and recyclable.

I photographed the Kaweco Sport Cognac with my favorite 3-Pen Case and some of my weird desk accoutrements.

Everything else about the Kaweco Sport Cognac is the same as all the other Kaweco Sport pens I’ve purchased. The nib matches the stamping on the pen. The nib is a silky smooth medium nib, as I would expect.

The Kaweco Sport weighs about 13gms with a cartridge. I used a Kaweco Mini Converter ($5) which may have added a gram or two to the overall weight but the pen is still very light and east to pocket.

  1. Thank you for this review. I really like the translucent color of this pen, but am not a fan of the shape of Kaweco sports or the large, embossed name on this one.

    Can you recommend other pens that have a similar amber/brown/cognac/caramel color, either translucent or opaque with an ink window? Thanks!

        1. Of course it came with a Sheaffer! I should have guessed that. People tend to give me Sheaffer goodies because of my Lady Sheaffer collection. (Bonks herself in the head like she should have had a V-8).

  2. I am looking to aquire a Koweco Sport Cognac. Would you be willing to sell yours or know of someone who would for a good price? Thanks.
