At less than 4 inches, the Liliput is the smallest fountain pen in the Kaweco lineup. But the pen extends to a comfortable 4.9 inches when the screw-on cap is posted at the end of the threaded barrel. Made of aluminum, the black and silver models weigh less than half an ounce apiece, while the hefty brass version more than doubles their weight. The copper is even heavier, at 0.9 ounces, while the steel model is only slightly lighter than the brass. Perhaps most notable about the copper, however, is that it will develop a unique patina over time. The pen comes with a standard international short cartridge, plus a stainless steel nib in the size of your choice.
Note: At checkout, choose brass (base price), aluminum in black or silver (- $20), or copper (+ $15). You’ll also have your choice of nib size: extra fine, fine, medium, broad, or double broad. You can add a Liliput Clip for an additional $6. This drop is limited to 46 units.
Re-released in 2011, the Liliput was first introduced more than 100 years ago, in 1910. The pen’s design showcases a streamlined, single-tone aesthetic that pre-dates even the earliest signs of minimalism in the Kaweco’s native Germany. As an homage to the Liliput’s early 20th century roots, the pen is packed in a box reminiscent of an old-fashioned tobacco tin.
