LOVE LETTERS Brass Fountain Pen
The Kaweco Brass Sport fountain pen is based on the original 1930’s octagonal design. As the pen is made from raw solid brass that has not been treated, it will develop a unique patina over time. Use a bit of brass polish to bring the pen’s finish to as it was when you first bought it, if you like.
Specifications: pocket-sized, 10.5cm long when closed, 13.5cm with the cap posted, 1.4cm in diameter & weighs 47 grams
The Kaweco Brass Sport fountain pen has a polished stainless steel nib that is manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg. The nib is available in a medium size; this pen uses short international standard ink cartridges.

Manufacturers of beautiful writing instruments for well over a century, KaWeCo is a long-established brand by an innovative company known around the world for its attention to detail and focus on tradition. The Heidelberger Federhalterfabrik (dip pen factory) was originally opened by Luce and Enßlen in 1883.
Here, wooden dip pens were produced, with fountain pens and golden nibs later imported by Morton, New York. In 1899, businessmen Heinrich Koch and Rudolph Weber, took over the factory, setting up production in Handschuhsheim, just outside of Heidelberg, where products with the brand names Perkeo, Omega and Kaweco were produced.
The year 1912 saw the founding of the Kaweco Sport, a patented pocket fountain pen for ladies, officers and sportsmen. This new Sport series introduced the first fountain pen to come with a cap, making it ideal for travelling. It is this series we carry here, at shop.thisglamorous.com, along with a few other great Kaweco writing instruments.
