Koch, Weber & Co. was founded in the 1890s in Heidelberg, Germany. The Kaweco Sport pen was developed in the 1920s with the concept to make a pen for ladies, officers, and sportspersons. The design was considered suitable for sport, service, and social dress due to its ability to tuck conveniently into a pocket yet sit comfortably in the hand in use. Today the Kaweco Sport pens continue to be produced in Germany to high quality standards. The Ice version is transparent and accented with color, it features a rollerball tip.
