In Kaweco's history, the PERKEO dip pen appears around 1900. The catalogue of the Heidelberg dip pen factory which was later named Kaweco, describes the PERKEO as a convertible fountain pen.
Today PERKEO is designed to be an ink cartridge fountain pen and a convertible fountain pen. The design stems from the classic Kaweco tradition. The matt octagonal cap and the sixteen-edged barrel harmonize perfectly. The ergonomic grip section inures an effortless writing experience and the colours are very unique.
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.
Kaweco Functional Design
To ensure a lasting experience Kaweco operate within the smallest margins of tolerance even though they offer customization options on every single pen. Whether you opt for a Kaweco classic octa-edge format or a circular design, pencil, roller pen or one of their many nib widths and strengths they'll create the perfect instrument for your demands. Kaweco work is a work well done when best-in-class quality, tangible character, and timeless design have gone from our hands to yours.
