Special Fountain Pen Black

Special Fountain Pen Black

Kaweco

Regular price $105.00 Sale

The high-quality aluminum gives this writing instrument the special feel and the silky-glossy surface underlines its simplicity. With a diameter of 10 mm, this fountain pen is easy to hold and effortless to write with. The pen comes with one unignited royal blue ink cartridge that is stored at the back of the pen. To access the cartridge, first unscrew the pen cap, then unscrew the front part of the pen body. You will find the unignited cartridge inside the pen body, which you can then insert into the front part of the pen body to ignite.

Kaweco refills available in multiple colors here. The pens can also be fitted with a standard converter which allows them to use bottled ink rather than cartridges. Classic Special Chrome Clip available here.


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.
