Kaco - Retro Red
The Retro is a stylish and amazing value pen from Chinese brand Kaco. The unusual hooded nib helps to keep plenty of ink close to the tip, while giving the pen a style reminiscent of classic vintage pens like the famous Parker "51". The cap features a rather different style of clip - a single metal rod, tipped with a plastic ball in a contrasting color to the barrel, adding to the retro style.
The great value continues to the whole package - the pen arrives in a sturdy plastic box which can be useful long after it has protected the pen on the way to you. The box also includes two cartridges and a converter to use bottled ink - a very rare thing to see included with a low cost pen.
There's a small ink viewing window between the barrel and grip section - you'll probably still find it easier to unscrew the barrel to get a good view of the ink level, but it should save you having to do that just to see that there's still some ink inside - often all you really need to know.
