I got a Kaweco Perkeo from Tudos in the same package as I got the pencil stuff I purchased.
This is the first Kaweco pen I have used. And I really like it. The nib is very firm, with soft.
I’m not sure how I should describe the pen. Because it is basically a competitor to the Pilot Metropolitan or the Lamy Safari. But it is much lighter, and much more fun. It looks more like something a kid would use, than the boring design of the Metro. or Safari. It also comes with a moulded grip section, but it s not like the one of the Safari. It is much less prominent and I did not find it uncomfortable to use in any way.
One thing though. I keep unscrewing the pen instead of uncapping it. I’m not sure why. Probably because I’m so used to pens you have to unscrew when you uncap them.
I think this pen is better than both the Safari and the Metropolitan because the grip section should work for everyone, and it doesn’t have a uncomfortable edge like the Metropolitan does. And I think this will be my new recommendation as the first fountain pen.
