As the holidays begin to rapidly approach, we’re constantly on the lookout for new lifestyle carbon fiber products that would make a great gift. There are quite a number of carbon fiber pens out there in the world, in fact, we carry a bunch of them. Our latest one really stood out of the crowd for its uniqueness, packaging, quality and price point. Take a look at the Kaweko AC Sport carbon fiber and aluminum fountain pen:
Kaweko is a German pen manufacturer that has been making pens since 1883…that’s not a typo…carbon fiber was not even a thought then. Fast forward to today, and the century old company is taking advantage of lightweight metals and composites in this pen. The body itself is made of genuine carbon fiber along with a matte black aluminum. The look and feel is fantastic.
A big part of giving a gift is the packaging, the AC Sport arrives in a custom Kaweko tin box that just looks pretty. We also throw in a free 6-pack of black ink cartridges so you can get your write on:
On the top of the cap you’ll find a metal Kaweko logo, really emphasizing the attention to detail. The nib of the pen, which is made out of stainless steel, is a medium size. When you open the pen up, you’ll find a blue ink cartridge (on top of the 6 we include) ready for installation. Kaweko’s slogan is “Small in the pocket, great in the hand,” and that’s a big part of what makes this pen unique. With the cap on, the pen measures just 4.1 inches…open the pen up and swap the cap to the back to extend it to 5.2 inches giving it a nice feel and compact design.
The pen is priced at just $120 (at the time of this writing), finalizing the last part of the perfect gift formula. If you’re ready to pick one up, head over to the product page.
