Condition and information:
The pen offered here is highest quality Kaweco pen, with very ergonomic classic body, it has great grip, handling, balance and feel in the hand. The Transparent series was one of the best Kaweco pens at the time. In the 1920-1930's this line was called the "Helios" line. Only after 1950's the line got renamed to Transparent, and with the Dia and the Elite was the top of the Kaweco lines. The pen is in mint condition with no cosmetic or functional defects what so ever, 100% originally preserved. The nib is the best part, it is a very sharp F but as many Kaweco nibs it's fully flexible, so it will write all sizes up to BB double broad. It is very smooth on the paper, no scratching, and depending on the applied pressure it will write wide lines on the down and side strokes. This nib will produce one of the best writing one can hope to achieve with a fountain pen. All trimmings are gold plated, the imprints are crisp and very large and clear blue ink window. Piston works very smoothly. The pen is quite efficient, practical, well balanced, with astonishing nib, and very reliable and easy to handle all wrapped in classic design.
