It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

The Kaweco Sport is one of the best compact everyday carry fountain and rollerball pens you can EDC today. The metal editions of the pen, in particular, feature a satisfying heft and quality that sets them apart from cheaper plastic writing implements. Until now, you've been able to pick between brass, stainless steel, and aluminum to get your hands on an all-metal Kaweco Sport. In 2023, Kaweco made their venerable Sport pen available in beautiful bronze.

Bronze is an alloy metal that consists of copper and other materials. The inclusion of copper gives the Bronze Kaweco Sport a reddish hue, making it stand apart from the pack. The metal construction makes it more durable than a plastic pen, but at 1.69 ounces, it isn't that much added heft to your pockets. And whether you get the fountain pen edition or the rollerball, you are guaranteed to get a smooth writing experience that you'll always have on hand due to its low-profile nature.

What we like: We don't see metal pens for EDC made out of bronze often, and Kaweco integrating it into their community-favorite Sport fountain or rollerball pen is a welcome treat.

What to watch out for: The Kaweco Sport does not come with a pocket clip out of the box; you will have to pick one up as a separate purchase if that's something you need. In addition, that clip is not available in bronze so it will look slightly different from the overall look of the pen.

Final verdict: A welcome bronze option for an all-metal everyday carry fountain or rollerball pen.
