  1. Pen Pit Stop : Kaweco Liliput Copper Welcome to the Pen Pit Stop. Here you will find reviews of pens that already have some mileage on them. More specifically, these reviews are of pens that are in my personal collection, and that have been in use for at least a year. I thought it would be fun to do it this way - no new & shiny pens here, but battered vehicles that have been put to work for at least a year. Let's find out how they have withstood the ravages of time. The fountain pen that arrives at the pit stop today is the "Kaweco Liliput Copper." Kaweco is a well-known German pen comp

  3. I really like Kaweco Liliput pocket pens – they are simple, robust and beautifully machined fountain pens. However, the Liliput’s small size mandates that ink cartridges need to used instead of a cartridge converter. I became frustrated with what I perceived as ink starvation when writing for extended periods of time with the pen, so I decided to look into this phenomenon in more detail. The picture below shows a cross-section view of the interface between the ink cartridge and the Kaweco (Bock) 060 nib. This 060 nib is used on all Kaweco fountain pens, except the Elite and Supra models. It
  4. I think it came out a little better actually than oem but only because I polished the pen first. Mostly it came out about the same as it does when Kaweco fires the pen. Firing this pen was very different than firing the Steel Sport. I had to really lay into this one and I think it took longer than the Steel Sport despite no real disassembly required with the Liliput. I didnt fire it with machining oil on it as Kaweco does. The results are very similar though. Theres no plastic in this pen so its pretty straight forward to fire. The big challenge was to get the polishing compound out of

    Kaweco Al Sport Vs Liliput

    Hi all. I fancy a new Kaweco, having both a Classic and Skyline Sport and being pretty impressed with them. To be honest, I think I prefer the looks to the writing experience but the latter certainly isn't bad. I also like the portability and durability of the pens, so am thinking of adding another to my collection. I'm torn between the black stonewashed AL Sport and one of the eco brass Liliputs. http://d15bv9e9f3al6i.cloudfront.net/imgs/products/cp/950_constW/KW30868-ZZZ~Kaweco-AL-Sport-Fountain-Pen-Black-Stonewashed_P1.jpg http://d15bv9e9f3al6i.cloudfront.net/imgs/products/cp/950_con
  6. Hi, I have bought a Skyline sport a few weeks back and I love the pen. Next, I would like to buy a metallic version of a Kaweco Fountain pen. I saw that there is the Al Sport and the Lilliput. Please suggest me which one will be the best one to buy because I want to use it for a long long time. I love full metallic fountain pens as they last for a life time.
  7. Can anyone tell me how the Liliput nibs compared to, say, a Lamy safari style nib in widths? Im going to pick up a Liliput in Fireblue but this is my first Kaweco. Is it standard European line widths? I like a Lamy medium nib width BUT a micro pen in double broad does have a crazy appeal to it! I cant believe Ive made it this long without a Kaweco but nows the time! I want to expand the micro fountain pen segment of my collection. My only other right now is a Montegrappa Micra and I really like that pen. Cheers!

    $30-$40 Off Fireblue Kaweco On Ebay

    There are Fireblue Kaweco Liliputs on Ebay for $144, around $30 cheaper than the price at most other websites. No affiliation with the seller, just thought I'd pass along the deal if anyone is interested in buying the pen. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kaweco-Liliput-Fountain-Pen-Fireblue-Fine-Point-New-In-Box-/391475663542?hash=item5b25c492b6:g:k8wAAOSw8w1X5Ema
  9. A little while ago, a member posted a picture of his homemade clip for the Kaweco Liliput. In my opinion, the Liliput badly needs a clip solution, if only to keep it from rolling off tables. Unfortunately, I'm not a metalsmith, so I can't make one like that myself. But there is something I've wanted to try for a while, at the admitted risk of scratching the Liliput's finish. Fisher, makers of the Space Pen ballpoint, make removable clips for their bullet style Space Pens. Sometimes they come with a new pen; sometimes you have to buy it as an extra; they package it in several different wa

    Kaweco Liliput Clip

    Hello everyone, I'd like to add a custom clip to my Kaweco Liliput. I was wondering if any of you might know the exact diameter of the cap? I believe that it is about 10mm, but I'm not sure about it. It seems like Kaweco might launch an official one in 2017.
  11. I've admired the look of the fireblue Kaweco Liliput, with its cool metallic sheen, but the pen itself is a bit too small for me, I'm afraid. Is there a fountain pen with a similar look that might be larger? Over 130mm capped perhaps. And maybe something not super-heavy like the Chinese metal body pens? And hopefully less expensive than the Kaweco?
  12. I just bought a Kaweco Liliput with a broad nib. It's perfectly decent, they are not expensive pens there is no reason to pick it apart. But...there is one thing that I would like to improve. The nib seems to be aligned, but the nib runs dry and is prone to skipping. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing? Is there a quick and easy fix that I can do if I'm not experienced in adjusting nibs? Might it help to slide a razor blade between the tines? I would be grateful for any advice. On a totally different note, Does anyone know a nib man in berlin? I have a Parker Sonnet that needs
  13. I am looking at buying a pocket pen and Kaweko has the Sport and Lilliput that look pretty good. I have a Parker Sonnet gold tipped medium nib which I love writing with (I write lightly). I am rather liking the look of the Liliput but I have a duple of questions: Do Kaweko use the same nibs for both the Sports and the Liliput? How do the gold-plated Sonnet and Kaweko nibs compare? Do the Kaweko broad nibs write any smoother than the medium nibs? Are the medium and broad nibs on the Sonnet and the Kaweko the same?
  14. While roaming the "New Arrivals" section of Jetpens I came across a new finish for the Liliput. It's called fireblue and it's incredible. http://static1.jetpens.com/images/a/000/066/66096.jpg http://static1.jetpens.com/images/a/000/066/66095.jpg And it's sold out. I can see why. EDIT: Here is the link to see more pictures.
  15. Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a number of new lines from Kaweco, including their premium bottled inks, Liliput Brass, AL Sport Stonewashed, Deluxe Octagonal Pocket Clips, and best of all, and exclusively available at Cult Pens, the Eco Wild Raw Leather pouches. Kaweco have given us a number of interesting product finishes over the years, but none have been quite as unusual as the new AL Sport Stonewashed, available in black or blue. The premise is simple, take the popular AL Sport range and stonewash it like you would a pair of jeans. The result is a writing instrument that looks as
