About This Product
Kaweco's Liliput fountain pen is one of the smallest, sleekest pens on the market. Capsule-shaped and made of rugged steel, Liliput is futuristic and highly portable. At under 4" with the cap on, this pen goes anywhere without weighing you down. While you're writing, the cap screws securely onto the back of the pen and makes Liliput a comfortable length for writing.
This stunning Liliput finish is called "Fireblue," and it's made by taking a super-hot torch to a stainless steel Liliput body. Each one is individually blued by hand, so every Fireblue Liliput differs in color, pattern, and level of gloss. Each one will also patina differently. Our photos show one Fireblue pen from our current stock, but your hand-finished pen will have its own particular character.
Each Liliput comes standard with a Kaweco Classic Steel Nib, a springy, consistent German nib that's easy to use and maintain. We have sold, serviced, and used Kaweco steel nibs ever since we first opened, and we recommend them heartily for everyday writing, correspondence, note-taking, and drawing.
As an optional upgrade, we offer an ultra-premium nib for Liliput—the 14k Gold Bicolor Nib, elegantly handcrafted from white and yellow gold. These nibs are hand-ground and perfectly tuned by Kaweco's artisans in Germany, and their quality and feel are a world apart from standard steel. Softer, with more line variation and a much smoother feel, Kaweco gold nibs are a splurge you won't regret.
Liliput is packaged in a Kaweco gift tin with a single blue ink cartridge. All other accessories, including refills, clips, and converters, are sold separately.
Made in Germany.
WHY BUY IT HERE?
When you choose St. Louis Art Supply for any fountain pen over $25, one of our expert technicians hand-checks and adjusts the nib, using high-powered magnification to ensure that the tines are perfectly aligned and there are no manufacturing defects. If necessary, we also use a superfine abrasive to remove any stray metal that can impact the smoothness of your nib. Finally, we clean the pen with our house pen cleaner and make sure that no fibers are stuck in the nib.
This intensive quality-control process offers you peace of mind that other retailers can't match. If you've ever bought a fountain pen from Amazon, you may have noticed that some reviews say it is smooth and others say it is scratchy. The reason is that they do not look at the pen before shipping it out. As a specialized shop with highly trained staff, we go the extra mile to provide a polished experience for every customer.
Look for our green "Tested OK" stamp on your packing slip. It's our way of letting you know that a real person checked your new pen and made sure it's perfect.
