Condition and information:

The pen offered here is a rare version of the late 60's and early 70's Kaweco pens with a special KF, "Kugel" meaning ball in German. The specialty of this nib is that unlike other nib sizes, which have to be held to a particular angle towards the paper, this pen's nib can write on various angles. This allows for more easy and convenient use as well as fast use, i.e. a journalist needs to deploy the pen and take a note right away without looking down at the paper. The pen is high build quality, typical of the vintage Kaweco pens, with great ergonomic design where form follows function. All trimmings are gold filled, so gold ware off is unlikely. In Kaweco "V" line pens the "V" stands for semi hooded nibs, this feature protects the nib as its not entirely exposed. The nib is smooth precise F size, no overflow of ink, very clean writer leaving no mess on the paper. This is why this pen is great for writing in notebooks or similar needs, where small, sharp and clean typeface is needed. The piston works easy and takes an good amount of ink. The pen is simply quite efficient, practical, well balanced, with superb form factor, astonishing nib, and very reliable and easy to handle, with unique design and appeal. The pen is in absolute mint condition, 100% originally preserved, comes in its original vintage Kaweco presentation box.

History of the Kaweco Company:
There were times when MontblancPelikan or other European pen makers, would look at a Kaweco pen first before making their own. Kaweco at the end of the 19th century and up to the 70’s, was one of the biggest manufacturers in Europe, everyone had a Kaweco pen, they stood out from the competition as they made the highest quality and best designed pens at the time. The company was founded in 1883 as “Koch Weber & Co” by the friends Luce Koch and Enßlen Weber in Heidelberger GermanyKoch Weber & CO, thus KA WE CO. They had a great start and up to 1929 they had several thousand employees, with revenue at over a million DM. However, in 1929, the same year Pelikan patented their piston filler, Kaweco filed for bankruptcy, unbelievably as they could not sustain their enormous growth. A considerably smaller fountain pen company known as Aurumia, bought the factory, and decided to use the same name old name Kaweco, as it represented superb writing instruments. Since 1920's up to late 1970’s, Kaweco made some of the most luxurious pens in Europe, the most expensive and high end pens, extraordinarily build quality. By the late 1940's Kaweco had at least one major retail store in all bigger cities, from London to Istanbul, and this was not the case with any other manufacturer in Europe.
