Today I'll start a series of posts with photos and quick reviews of my fountain pens. I started in the hobby around a year ago, and it has been a very fun and rewarding experience. This posts are my way to give back something to the community that has teach me so much already.
Pens will be presented in no particular order, so my Kaweco Sports Brass is as good a start as any.

/ come in many materials, but I think brass is my favourite. It gives this small pocket pen a good weight, and it collects a beautiful patina over time and use.
The design is such that, even that it is a small pen, when posted it becomes a good size for writing, which makes it portable yet comfortable to use.
The main downside of this pen is that the converter for it is not practical, and since it is made of metal, it is not possible to eye drop it, limiting you to cartridges. It takes small international cartridges, which is a plus. (What I do: I use a syringe to fill an empty cartridge with bottled ink, reducing environmental waste and expanding my options). The pen does not come with a clip, but I highly recommend. The clip is not expensive, but it is practical and makes the pen look even cooler.
