Brass Sport Ballpoint

Brass Sport Ballpoint

Kaweco

Regular price $80.00 Sale

This pen matches the sport fountain pen in look and weight. The ballpoint mechanism works precisely and noiselessly. The high quality brass develops a natural and individual patina over time. Due to the pleasant weight, the pen leans into the paper with almost no pressure, allowing easy writing. 

1.0 mm ballpoint 
4 1/4"

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.
