Kaweco Copper Liliput Fountain Pen
The Kaweco Liliput is made from solid copper, available in Medium nib. We can provide other nibs of you need them - just get in touch.
Read on below for the info and the caveats - but beware. This pen is utterly bewitching. First customer was yours truly. A magnificent piece of engineering.
The Liliput is the smallest member of Kaweco's fountain pen lineup and among the smallest fountain pens in the world that use standard international short ink cartridges. Threading on the end of the barrel allows the cap to be screwed on securely, bringing the pen to a comfortable, full-sized length while in use. Originally introduced in 1910, the Liliput was re-released in 2011 and is available in a variety of attractive materials and finishes.
This Copper pen is constructed from raw copper, a material prized for its unique transformation over time, going from new-penny red to a darker reddish brown.
The pen comes in a tin gift box with one blue ink cartridge. The cartridge comes inside the barrel of the pen. If the cartridge seems to be stuck inside the barrel, try gently tapping the barrel against a hard surface a few times to dislodge it.
Due to the softness of the raw copper finish, this pen may come with scratches caused during the machining process. It also has a noticeable metallic scent that can transfer to the user's hand for a short time after use.
Note: The metal body of this pen can be corroded by prolonged contact with ink. Be sure to clean off any ink that gets onto its surface, and do not use it as an eyedropper pen.
