The Tiger Eye ART Sport is produced in small batches with hand poured Italian acrylic, creating a unique marbled pattern of amber, brown and gold hues. The pen is then polished to a mirror finish to bring out all the depth and shimmer of the material and finished with a gold tone filial on the cap and a fine gold-plated steel nib.
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.
