There’s a retro look to Kaweco’s stylish pens, but the company’s outlook is distinctly modern. With sustainability, longevity and ease of use at its heart, Kaweco calls on its German DNA to engineer writing instruments that feel bold, well-balanced and supremely comfortable to use.
Born over 100 years ago in Heidelberg, Germany, Kaweco began by producing simple wooden dip pens and fountain pens, with gold nibs imported from New York. Patenting its first safety fountain pen in 1908, it quickly opened branches in Berlin, Paris, Vienna and Zurich, marketing its pocket fountain pen, the Kaweco Sport, for ‘ladies, officers and sportsmen’. With a production hiatus during WWII, the brand came back stronger in the 1960s and 1970s, with a re-issued version of the Sport being licenced for the Munich Olympics in 1972.
With cool, classic design and high-quality craftsmanship still characterising their flagship designs, Kaweco pens are a joy to use. The Sport’s signature hexagonal shape is beautifully balanced, and available across a range of high-end to everyday pens that can be engraved, so there’s something for everyone. The Liliput is a petite pocket pen, while the DIA 2 has a stylish, vintage feel. All Kaweco writing instruments are made to be refillable – no single-use stuff here – and use beautiful materials like adonised aluminium, inlaid carbon fibre and matte acrylic resin in stylish colours. You’ll find fountain pens, rollerballs, ballpoints, mechanical pencils, refills and ink bottles – there’s a whole Kaweco writing ecosystem to discover.
