Leave it to the Germans to make a fountain pen that is compact and functional with a minimalistic style that is quietly chic. Koch, Weber & Co. ("KaWeCo") was founded in the 1890s in Heidelberg, Germany, and still makes their fine writing instruments there today. The Liliput is one of the shortest fountain pens available, making it ideally suited to tuck into a pocket or bag. The copper and brass finishes are untreated and will develop a rich patina with time and use. Fine stainless steel nib. Takes standard sized ink cartridges.
