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.
If you are trying to build the epic #kawecotowerchallenge, then you won’t want to miss adding the Cognac to your pile.
