Condition and information:
Kaweco Colleg 550N, this is the last generation of this "old style" form factor Kaweco pens. These model were succeeded by the new lines with sharp edges and form factor. These late 1950's pens were build as a light, efficient, practical, with classic form factor, something between an old and modern, with rounded edges but still with the old familiar shape and build with an extraordinary build quality. The pen unlike later models has full gold filled trimmings, so no gold ware off is possible. Piston is very smooth, easy and it takes a lot of ink. This was done as Kaweco managed to minimize all the piston parts, and again they were the first on the market to do so. Later this system was adopted by other manufacturers. Very beautiful light blue ink window, crisp imprints, knurled turning knob. The pen features a very special DEF nib. Such nibs are not produced any longer, but were very popular at the time as they preform very differently then conventional nibs. The "D" stands for "
documents" in German, and were usually used for long and demanding work, but also where a pressure for copies needed to be applied. This nib does not bend, so its perfect for any precision work, and even a technical drawing. This nib will produce a very smooth constant line with no excess ink, very clean and easy to write with. Its perfect for any precision writing or smaller typeface letters, like notebooks and similar. The nib is solid 14K gold, and has a nice curvature to make it more stiff and also its thicker then most nibs. It is large nib. Very reliable and easy to use pen and maintain. The pen is in mint condition, near NOS new old stock condition. Great and rare writing instrument by Kaweco.
