Kaweco’s Sports Fountain Pen Made of Brass
Small but Beautiful. Kaweco’s Sports Fountain Pen Made of Brass.
This pocket fountain pen features a barrel, grip section and cap made of solid brass. The stylograph is pleasantly heavy and, when the cap is attached at the back, also of impressive size – for a fountain pen of pocket format. The surface is untreated and develops a patina over time depending on usage, storage and transport preferences. The steel nib of the fountain pen is equipped with an iridium tip and writes with ink from cartridges (a blue one is included).
Writing Instruments for Travelling. Kaweco Sports Product Series.
Founded in 1883, fountain pen factory Koch, Weber & Co. based in Heidelberg used to be one of the most important manufacturers of fountain pens and accessories. And it was one of the most ingenious, too. They invented the first German truly leak-proof stylograph: the “safety fountain pen”. In the middle of the 1930s, they designed the stylograph model “Sports”, a small fountain pen which (slightly modified over time) was successfully sold until 1970. This is not particularly surprising considering the compact length of 10.5 cm of the closed fountain pen – a commodity when travelling. Over and above the ready-to-use stylograph – with the cap attached to the end – is very comfortable to hold and writes agreeably. Inspired by the model of 1935, we initiated its production relaunch. Like its archetype, our model “Sports” has a gold-plated nib with an iridium writing tip. As Kaweco did in later years, we also offer a series of writing instruments for travelling. In addition to the fountain pen, you find a ball pen, retractable pencil and clutch pencil in pocket-size in our range. In this version (with a black case featuring guilloches), these writing instruments are exclusively available at Manufactum.
