Brass Sport Fountain Pen
This pen is made from raw solid brass that has not been treated and will develop a unique patina over time. It writes silkily without the nib drying between uses. The pen is compact when capped (approx. 4.1 inches long), but very comfortable when posted (5.2 inches long). This pen comes with a fine nib.
Refill cartridges available here. Refillable converter available here.
Replacement nibs in alternate sizes available here. Sport pen clips available in silver and gold.
Kaweco was established in 1883 outside Heidelberg Germany, although it was not yet called Kaweco and the design that is the most recognizable, Kaweco Sport, was not designed until 1911. A fountain pen that was not a heavy, expensive desk piece but rather lightweight and convenient was an innovation. Ballpoint pens, what we would think of as an analogy to this experience, were invented in 1888 but a reasonably functional design was not produced until 1938 and popularization came mostly after World War II, by then the Kaweco Sport was a classic as well as many other designs produced by Kaweco.
