Kaweco Skyline Sport Fountain Pen - Mint, Extra-Fine is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased! I've been using this pen for almost two weeks now and am very happy with it. The EF nib was a little hesitant at first, but now that it's gotten some exercise, it's working quite smoothly. It provides the feedback one might expect from a very thin point, but it isn't scratchy. (I may or may not do a little nib smoothing in time; we'll see.) I got this pen because I needed a counterpart for my very smooth Burgundy Sport with M nib: these two are now part of my EDC (ink cartridges keep life simple when on the go); the M nib for drafting text and the EF nib for editing, each with a different color ink. I'm very pleased with this addition to my collection. Goulet Pens was as prompt and careful as usual with their delivery. Thank you, Team Goulet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sweet i didn't expect the nib to be this good in the extra fine, but it is very smooth, and more like a fine nib. the pen is really small unposted but that is what i was looking for, and i love that it screws closed so i don't have to worry about leaking. it did not come with a cartridge, as advertised, but i had the silicone grease and just converted it. kon-peki flows nicely in this pen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adorable design, poor flow While the kaweco skyline sport in mint is incredibly cute and well-designed, I just don't use it very often. Although the nib is supposed to be extra fine, it seems to write the same as medium nibs that I have and that was the first disappointment. Furthermore, when I write with a fountain pen I want it to flow smoothly onto the high-quality paper I'm using... and the kaweco sport just doesn't deliver that smoothness that I'm accustomed to from a much cheaper pen (the Pilot Metropolitan, for example). I have to press quite firmly to get the ink to flow, even after flushing the nib and ensuring the ink was flowing from the cartridge. I am unable to write in my typical cursive because of this problem. So, to sum up, I love the look of this pen but it doesn't write the way I want it to. I'm very thankful for Goulet Pens' customer support and I will always buy my pens, ink, and other writing supplies here. One disappointing pen does not change that! :-)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's okay This was my second fountain pen purchase (first was a pilot metropolitan) and I must say in my mind it doesn't compare. I like how small it is and will eventually try some new inks and hopefully it will start working better but I find that I hard starts all the time and skips a lot. Maybe it's just the one I got or the fact it's an EF? I think my next purchase might be a twsbi and I'll see how I like that.
