The Pen Addict Podcast: Episode 117 - We're A Perfect Pairing

Myke and I launched the Relay FM live chat room this week for the podcast and it was a blast! We will be running it every week so stay tuned for the schedule of events. Lots of fun behind-the-scenes action.

During the show we talked about Myke's new Lamy 2000, why we love analog tools, and the relaunch of the Scribble Pen. We then dug into perfect pen and paper pairings. What is yours?

Kaweco Skyline Sport Fountain Pen Review

I’ve long been a fan of the Kaweco Classic Sport fountain pen but it never made my daily rotation. I’m not the biggest fan of the gold colored nib and trim of the pen, after all. With the release of the new Kaweco Skyline Sport I can happily carry one of the best pocket pens on the market with fresh, new silver furniture.

Kaweco didn’t just just swap gold for silver and keep the barrel colors intact, they added Mint and Gray to the lineup, and also made Black available in the Skyline lineup. The blogosphere is in love with the Mint barrel - rightfully so - but I went with the more subdued Gray with an EF nib and couldn’t be happier.

If you are a fan of the Kaweco Classic you will be glad to know the nuts and bolts of the pen haven’t changed a bit. The same great design and functionality are found in the Skyline. It is a lightweight, compact pen when closed and full-sized for writing with the cap posted. It is easily comfortable enough to use all day.

What I like about the Skyline the most is that it is a no-frills pocket carry. The smooth plastic barrel just slides into your pocket, with no clip to snag on anything and no metal barrel to scratch up other items. It’s also cheaper than most pocket fountain pens so there is no fear in losing it.

The Kaweco Classic is a great all-around fountain pen and the Skyline fits right in to an already excellent lineup.
