Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen Copper
The LILIPUT is one of the oldest Kaweco series. In 1908 it already fascinated the consumers with its simple style, it was made of ebonite back then. Even today the Kaweco LILIPUT only consists of 3 parts: cap, barrel and mouthpiece.
The LILIPUT series is available in different precious metals. Measuring only 97 mm when closed, just 87 mm when opened and 125 mm when the cap is attached to the barrel, the LILIPUT is one of the smallest fountain pens in the world.
Copper is a sought-after material for several reasons. It's an excellent conductor (not of music, it doesn't move enough for that), it can be alloyed with numerous other metals to great effect and is naturally biostatic (bacteria will not grow on it – very hygienic). It's rarely used for making pens though, which is strange because it looks amazing, is wonderfully tactile and will age and acquire a unique patina over time in air untreated copper will slowly acquire a blue-green outer coating think old copper pipes or the Statue of Liberty. If the pen is being used frequently, the patina will be a much darker coppery colour, as the blue-green coating will not have time to develop. Once the pen has developed this initial patina it will remain unchanged for a long time as it serves as a protective barrier to the copper underneath. The finish can either be left to develop its patina or can be restored using copper polish and a liberal application of elbow grease.
This pen features the Kaweco logo in silver-coloured metal on the end of the cap. Polished stainless-steel nib, manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg. Available in medium, fine, extra-fine, broad or extra-broad.
Uses short international standard cartridges. Alternatively, you may get one converter to use bottle ink.
