How many pens make a collection? I ask because, well, I seem to have developed a little Kaweco AL Sport habit.
At first I didn’t find the Kawecos aesthetically pleasing. I was fresh off a Lamy Safari experience with a molded grip that I didn’t enjoy and I didn’t want anything that was faceted. And I’ve never made secret that I love metal-barrelled pens for the bit of weight and the feel in my hand.
My gateway model was the Kaweco x Hello Kitty Limited Edition AL Sport. Which is funny because I’ve never been either a pink girl or a Hello Kitty superfan. But something about it was just perfect. And I matched it to KWZ Raspberry ink. What I love about the Kaweco is that it’s cute, portable and never dry. I can leave it on my desk for weeks at a time and when I pick it up it still writes as though I used it yesterday.
Next came the Vibrant Violet. I picked this one up not too long after Christmas because, well…. it’s purple! I need to get a converter for it so I can start loading it with my favorite purple inks.
Then it was a slipper slope downhill to the Red one, which I got with a broad nib just to be different (the other two are fine nibs).
So really, how many is a collection?
