Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen

$ 68.00
PRODUCT DETAILS

It was in 1910 that KAWECO first produced a Liliput fountain pen: at that time out of a material called ebonite. The remake of this series is now produced in solid aluminium with steel nib. Only 9.7 cm long when closed, the Liliput is one of the smallest fountain pens for standard ink cartridges. The cap can be screwed into the end of the pen to extend it to a standard length while writing. Small, sleek, perfect! Available in glossy black or matte silver.

Please note that all our fountain pens come fitted with a medium (M) size nib.

Made in Germany.

SPECIFICATIONS

Length 9.7 cm when closed (12.5 cm from end to tip of nib when cap is in writing position). Replacement international ink cartridges available through in our store.

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.
