Description This Kaweco Liliput fountain pen in Eco Brass Wave, with a steel nib, is constructed from lead-free Eco Brass that will darken and change color over time as the brass oxidizes, acquiring a natural antique patina. A wave texture on the barrel and cap creates a unique look and feel. The Kaweco Liliput fountain pen is the smallest model of Kaweco's fountain pen lineup and among the smallest fountain pens in the world that uses standard international short ink cartridges. The pen becomes a comfortable full-sized pen when the cap is screwed on to the end of the barrel. The Kaweco Liliput was originally introduced in 1910, and was re-released in 2011 in several updated materials and finishes.The pen comes packaged in a tin gift box and includes one short international cartridge to get you started. Additional cartridges are available in a variety of colors.This pen can have a metallic scent that can transfer to the user's hand for a short time after use.Please Note: The metal body of this pen can be corroded by prolonged contact with ink. For best results, clean off any ink that gets onto the surface, and do not use it as an eyedropper pen.
