The beginning of Kaweco goes back to the year 1883. For 140 years, Kaweco has been writing history with high-quality writing instruments and therefore is known as one of the oldest brands in its industrial sector. As you can see, it’s a heritage that is still reflected in its product design today. Then as now, the following principle is groundbreaking: To create writing instruments with a lot of passion and love that will be a beloved and loyal companion for a lifetime. The new Kaweco Ebonite Sport Limited Edition Fountain Pen Set exemplifies such an idea.
First of all, with the Kaweco Ebonite Sport Limited Edition Fountain Pen Set, we take you on a journey through time. Not only is the shape of the popular Sport model inspired by products from over a hundred years ago, but the material used also has a historical origin. In a time when the injection molding process had not yet been invented, ebonite was often the material of choice for writing instruments.
The name ebonite goes back to ebony, which is very similar to hard rubber in color and hardness. The expressive marbling and the highly polished surface suggest the appearance of valuable exotic wood. The composition of the material with natural rubber and sulphur is totally natural. The combination with gold-plated elements underlines the nostalgic character of the fountain pen and enhances the warm brown grain. A complex burin engraving perfectly complements the history-steeped craftsmanship.
Finally, as a perfect addition, the limited set includes a nostalgic clip in gold. This makes it easy to attach the pen securely to a writing pad. Besides the standard royal blue ink cartridge in the fountain pen, there is also a convenient 10-pack of all Kaweco ink colors for individualizing your own writing. Everything together is placed within a packaging, which is inspired by historical cardboard boxes from back then. Choose from: extra fine, fine, medium, broad, and double broad.
Importantly: Due to the contained sulphur, the pen develops a patina. Therefore, it becomes an unique collector’s item with its own individual coloring over time. The original condition can be restored with a simple polish.
