Anything but broad is "sold out", huh. A pity, the pen indeed looks gorgeous.
I have this little gem... I keep asking them to do a Lilliput SUPRA in this, but they keep telling me no. Would love a fire blue Supra.
Buy the regular stainless steel for much cheaper, flame it yourself, save money

Neither did I, all you need is a torch and a pair of pliers. YouTube it. It takes about 4 minutes to do once you're set up

Sounds cool. Mind sharing photos? Would love to see how it turned out!
Can you ship to Mexico?
MD you need to replace the photo of the clip with a correct one. The one shown is for the Sport series.
Do we have any idea yet when this will be shipping?

Good news Just got an email that the order has been shipped :)

Yay! Thanks.
Could someone please tell me what I should use to remove ink stain from the body of Fireblue? I've heard not to use alcohol because it can ruin your pen Any suggestions?
Cool drop. I guess I'll flag this one once it ends so I'll know about the next drop. Seems at the end here, they've sold out of the common sizes. The only thing I don't like about this pen is the idea of cartridges. That and I already bought two expensive (for me) pens this year.

Now that’s interesting! I always read the squeeze converters didn’t fit even though they were supposed to. I hadn’t tried it as i just refill the cartridges But I will order one up now, thank you!
From my experience of using this pen from the last drop, I have an issue with starting the pen with a new cartridge. The ink will not flow after plugging a new/refilled cartridge. I recommend squeezing the cartridge to get some into the feed. Another issue was baby's bottom. I recommend smoothing it out with micromesh and Mylar paper from Goulet. After tuning the nib, it is easily one of my best writers, the best out of my steel nibs.

Having the same exact issues with the Liliput Aluminum BB. Waiting for some micromesh to come in so I can smooth it out. Hopefully I don't fuck it up
There's no mention of it here, but, other sources say the fired finish can be removed with polishing.

What kind of polishing? If deliberate, then that's obvious. If it's normal use, then I haven't heard of that before.
MorePie
Doesn't say. I imagine it to be the silver cleaners that shine brass and copper. I bought one and wont be cleaning it. And for anyone else new to fountain pens it looks like this pen cannot fit a refillable converter. Would like someone with the pen to verify though.
Holy crap, the drop already shipped? I didn't plan for an early shipment at all.
Can the nib be switched out?

I was wrong, it's actually minimum $9. Some might be more expensive than others.
MorePie
Thanks. That's still a pretty reasonable price. I appreciate the update!
So, here's a pro-tip.
Take them out of your pant pockets before laundry.

How about the pen, though?
Oh. Pen is fine. It's indestructible. I think when we finally blow up the planet, it will be roaches and Kaweco pens vying for supremacy.
Just buy the regular steel liliput on Amazon for cheaper, then hit it with a torch and voila... Better results with the colour and the same pen for Less lol. I'm much happier

Have you ever been a lo get that blue color that nice watches have for their hands ("thermally blued hands")? It looks black, but goes blue in strong light. I always wanted to have other items with such coloration.

I don't use an oven or electricity to anodized. I think it's easier to control the results that way. I use a map gas torch. I've gotten some very brilliant blue colouring on some of my knives though
I got one of these on a previous drop and I love it. Just wish Kaweco would come out with the Supra in FireBlue...
Got mine. This is my EDC pen right now.

This pen is amazing. I've never had one that starts writing as soon as it touches the page (from the box even). Its tiny, you don't even know its in your pocket! The only thing that may be irritating, if you write plenty little notes, having to unscrew the lid, and screw it on the end and do that over and over could be cumbersome for some. Otherwise, look and feel, A++
CaptMcFizzle
I've got the copper model... ditto on it not writing as soon as it touches the page. Not sure what's up with the nib, but they do tend to hard-start unless you flex them just a bit. Doesn't leek in the pocket, and the screw lid is secure, even if a touch cumbersome, though.
All around great pen.
Dermott
When i said that i meant that this pen DOES write as soon as its taken out of the box, Ive never owned a pen before that works so perfectly well with no problems at all.
Such a pretty color! I've been wanting one!
How much was it?

Oh gosh, I tried ordering and then the drop ended. I hope you do another order because me and my friend missed it by seconds :(

Same.
If you don't live in north America you probably can find a better deal elsewhere... This was the case when MD was selling the Kaweco Supra (a similar but larger pen).
I would also recommend the Supra over the Lilliput. It has the same styling but is a little bigger and can use a converter, although it does only come in brass ie no fancy heat treated steel. The Supra has a slightly larger diameter (from how the supra feels to hold I imagine that the narrower Lilliput would feel kind of awkward), and when not posted it has a similar length to a posted Lilliput (when capped or posted it is quite a bit longer than the Lilliput). It also includes an extension tube which you can remove to get a similar length to the Lilliput (which of course means you then lose the ability to use a converter). Another great thing about the Supra it uses the much more common #6 nib size, which is mostly relevant if you would consider using a non-Kaweco nib. One qualm I have with the supra is that when posted (with extension tube installed) it feels ever so slightly back heavy.
Not that the Lilliput is necessarily bad (and boy does that "fire blue" colouring look delicious), I just really like the much more versatile Supra.
waywardson
Fireblue Supra please Kaweco!!!
Can this pen take a converter?
SilentStriker
Other retail sites say it takes short international cartridges only.
SilentStriker
No, you'll have to refill cartridges
This is a very good price for this pen.
