Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen (Alloy Edition)

$ 120.00
PRODUCT DETAILS

Only 9.7 cm long when closed, the Kaweco Liliput is one of the smallest fountain pens for standard ink cartridges available on the market. Originally released in 1910, the Liliput was constructed from a composite material called ebonite and later evolved to a modern version featuring an anodized aluminum housing. These special edition Liliput fountain pens are now available in sturdier alloy housings including Stainless Steel, Copper and Eco-Brass™ : a lead-free brass alloy that is easy to machine and is as strong as stainless steel. As with the standard aluminum Liliput, the cap can be screwed into the end of the housing to extend the pen to a standard length while writing. Small, sleek and a smart addition to your EDC kit!

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).

Available in stainless steel, Eco-Brass™ or copper.

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.
