WHY WE LOVE THIS


In 1883, Heidelberger Federhalterfabrik was founded and began producing wooden dip pens and gold-nibbed fountain pens. What would soon after become known as Koch, Weber & Co. was one of the most important German manufacturers of pens and accessories at the time. They created the first truly leak-proof 'security filler' in Germany and were awarded war contracts as their products were deemed both superior and essential for soldiers and civilians alike. In the 1930's the brands and models of Kaweco and Aurumia fused and the “KA WE CO” brand was born. By the mid-1930s, a sport model of fountain pen was developed - Kaweco Sport Pen; it was based on an idea developed in 1910 to make a pen for ladies, officers and sports personnel. 

The Kaweco Special line takes it's design cues from the ubiquitous office pencils of 1930's Germany, but there is nothing run-of-the-mill  about the construction of these pens, pencils and nib pens. The products feature an octagonal body cast in matte black aluminum and feature black chromized brass parts, high quality push mechanisms, and top quality, industry-standard leads and cartridges. Robust, sturdy and an absolute beauty to behold.
