There are only a few writing instruments which have been successful in the market for decades without big changes. One of them is the Kaweco CLASSIC Sport fountain pen. It follows the design of the year 1935. Outstanding because of its unique form and size.
In 1911 something special occurred with the Kaweco Sport. A pocket fountain pen which everyone could carry anywhere. Just 10.5 cm big when closed, and with the cap on top of the barrel it grew to a standard size pen. Small in the pocket and big in the hand: The Kaweco Sport.
Sepp Herberger already appreciated these characteristics. It was with a Kaweco Sport that the former coach of the German national soccer team wrote on a piece of paper his winning tactics which brought the Germans to the world cup in 1954.
The quality of good things is an experience that goes well beyond a single sense. Kaweco passion goes just as deep for the smallest of details as it does for the huge difference between their writing instruments and cheap, mass-made products. Kaweco designs stem from another era when tradition and craftsmanship were still synonymous and some clocks seemed to go a little slower. We took the fascination Kaweco pens had back in the days and translated these values to todays refined and increasingly demanding times.
Creating products that keep the given promise of standing up to being much loved and seasoned companions every single day of the journey, time and time again.
Good things take time and we take the long list of steps and tasks necessary to build your next writing instrument more than just seriously. The manufacturing process and quality control still lay in Kaweco's very own, skilled hands, right there in Nuremberg, Germany. A city rich with tradition and appreciation for writing instruments, renowned well beyond its infamous walls. Local tradition and technology from afar meet in every single one of our products: Like the premium mechanics from PRECO/Iwasaki Japan for example.
