Using this Fountain Pen for the first time
To replace the cartridge, unscrew the nib component of the pen from the body (threading is towards the middle of the pen). Drop the cartridge into the nib component narrow end first. Press down a bit until you feel the back of the nib puncture the end of the cartridge. Screw the pieces back together and cap the pen. Put the pen, nib-side down into a pen cup to let the ink soak into the nib. This should take 2-3 minutes. Begin writing.
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.
