Around 1550, brass was purposefully cast for the first time and thus offered various applications. However, at the beginning of the industrial age, writing instruments were mainly made of ebonite. At the time, brass was only used for decorative parts such as clips and decorative rings. Later, ink cartridges made it possible to use brass for the writing instruments themselves because the ink would be separated from contact with the metal surface.
Writing instruments of the series Kaweco Brass Sport develop a natural and unique patina over time. It is a surface change that occurs due to user-related, chemical or corrosive influences. As a result every Kaweco Brass Sport becomes a unique item over time.
The writing instrument, due to its special weight, already presses lightly onto the paper. This feature makes it possible for you to write long and comfortable.
This pocket fountain pen only measures 10.5 cm when closed and is, therefore, a perfect everyday carry item. When the cap is mounted, the pen grows to a standard size of 13 cm. Thanks to its lightweight and small size, it’s a great pen on the go.
This fountain pen works with standard Kaweco cartridges, but can also take one of Kaweco's signature converters.
