Condition and information:
One of the most famous Kaweco lines, Sport mini pocket size pens sets, 16V and 619. These are made out of black resin that gives the pen a unique shine. This is possibly the best material to make pens from, as it does not scratch easily and always shines. Both pens are 12 sided (dodecagons), thus they perfectly reflect light. These were specially made and sold during the Munich Olympics in 1972, and they were the signature writing instrument of the Olympics, with Kaweco adds running everywhere during the event. Both pens are in absolute NOS new old stock condition, no cosmetic or functional defects what so ever, 100% originally preserved in their original genuine leather green pocket pouch. The special feature is the pouch that bares the original Munich Olympics insignia badge. The fountain pen is EF size nib, semi-flexible, will write with ease up to B with a gentle push, and feels very smooth on the paper. Piston works perfectly, clear see through ink window. Both pens have gold plated trimmings and gold plated logos located on top of the cap and push button, crisp imprints. The Ballpoint pen has a specially designed Kaweco patented steel micro ball guided mechanism, which is extremely precise, reliable and easy to use. Both pens even though short have a perfect grip and feel as they are thick, however the fountain pen with the cap posted is as any normal pen, has a great balance and feel since the cap is quite long. All in all an amazing design and superb quality vintage pens from Kaweco, the original Sport series, pens that will fit in any pocket and always preform perfectly. The pens come in a never used condition, in their original carton box as sold at the time.
