Kaweco Ice Sport Rollerball Review and Giveaway28 September 2015
The Kaweco Ice Sport Rollerball is a refillable pocketable liquid ink pen that’s available in a wide range of colours. It’s a variation on the Classic Sport range, featuring a clear barrel and translucent cap and grip. This one was sent to me by Kaweco free of charge for review purposes.
Price: $27 (USA), £16 (UK)
Tip size options: Medium (replaceable)
Barrel options: Blue, green, pink, orange, red, yellow
Ink type: Liquid ink (rollerball)
Size: 10.5cm long (capped), 13cm long (posted); 14mm diameter
As I’ve said many times when talking about the Sport fountain pen range, this is a classic design. The oversized cap makes for a pen that sits in the pocket comfortably but extends the pen, when posted, to a good size for writing.
In most forms, Sports look fantastic but this particular configuration doesn’t quite do it for me.
The refill is pretty good. It’s a good dark line and mostly consistent. There’s a very occasional small skip: not something you’d notice if you weren’t looking but nevertheless there.
This pen takes the Retro 1951 (Schmidt P8126/P8127) refill, though, which means you can use one of the finest rollerball refills there is.
In use the pen is very light, due to the plastic construction, but a good length and so comfortable overall.
Can use a range of refills including the Schmidt P8126/7
Pocketable but also a good size to write with
Feels a little cheap
Design might not be everyone’s cup of tea
The Kaweco Ice Sport Rollerball is a good little rollerball pen that can use a fantastic third-party refill. The design doesn’t quite do it for me, as I said, and so I’m giving this one away. Say thank you to someone you know in the comments. I’ll pick one lucky reader using random.org and send you this pen. The giveaway ends at 9am GMT on Sunday 11th October. You can only enter once.
Many thanks to Kaweco for sending me this pen to review. These are my own opinions.
A good choice to keep in a jacket or the car.
I’d say thank you to my partner for all the bottomless support <3.
I love the demonstrator opaque body on this. Thanks for a great competition!
I’d like to say thanks to my friend L who has been there for me, through good times and bad!
I’d like to say thank you to my daughter (8 years old) who allowed me, yesterday, explaining with two balls and the luster of the kitchen the moon total eclipse (resulting in blood moon) we were about to see.
Then together, out on the balcony, looking at the moon and the stars with binoculars, was a special moment.
And… thanks to you for the giveaway. 🙂
Thanks to my brother and sister for maintaining a wonderful relationship among the three of us all these years. I don’t know any siblings who all appreciate and support each other the way we do.

Thanks to the lady at a car boot sale at the weekend who sold me two-thirds of a Waterman Lady Anastasia fountain pen for 20 cents. The nib is lovely… the cap is sweet with its little transfer picture… now all I need is a barrel!
Thanks so much to my wife for putting up with me 🙂
Thank you so much to my wife and kids, who make my life worth living.
