Kaweco Liliput Brass Pen


The Kaweco Pen Co. is a company founded in 1883, originally based in Heidelberg, Germany.  During World War I, the company started producing its own gold nibs, to stop dependence on importing American parts. By 1929, it became one of the first German manufacturers to employ injection molding. Despite some turmoil in the later 20th century, the company is still present and that strength purveys through the products. One of those sturdy products is the Kaweco Liliput Brass Fountain Pen.

For a compact and rugged pen, with a smooth writing experience for everyday use, the Kaweco Liliput Brass is a fantastic choice. The brass body is tough, yet sleek with an understated elegance. The pen gives off a much more delicate and expensive look. It is approximately 3.5 inches with the cap twisted on.  At around 5 inches posted, it has an almost perfect balance in the hand. The pen is great for smaller and medium sized hands, as its thin and petite body rests comfortably in the hand when writing.  Wonderful for on the go, the threaded nature allows it to both be screwed on tight to prevent leaking and posted with twist-on threading to keep the cap on securely.


As a writer the Kaweco Liliput Brass is surprisingly smooth with an excellent flow. The steel nib performs impressively with its smoothness. Strokes and curves written in different directions are not a problem and scratchiness is almost a nonfactor. Flow is exceptional for this small device! It truly makes the writer want to go on and on. This can be attributed to the high quality feed. The pen takes standard international cartridges. The only drawback is that the converter is sold separately and many users suggest syringe filling a cartridge as the better option.


If you are looking for an everyday writer, which is both durable and dependable, the Kaweco Liliput Brass Fountain Pen is a great choice! Classy enough to pull out at an evening out or tough enough for everyday use on the go, the writing experience is one to write home about.
