DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Liliput is the smallest member of Kaweco's fountain pen lineup and among the smallest fountain pens in the world that use standard international short ink cartridges. Threading on the end of the barrel allows the cap to be screwed on securely, bringing the pen to a comfortable, full-sized length while in use. Originally introduced in 1910, the Liliput was re-released in 2011 and is available in a variety of attractive materials and finishes.

This Black pen is constructed from lightweight aluminum and features a shiny black finish.

The pen comes in a tin gift box with one blue ink cartridge. The cartridge comes inside the barrel of the pen. If the cartridge seems to be stuck inside the barrel, try gently tapping the barrel against a hard surface a few times to dislodge it.

Note: The metal body of this pen can be corroded by prolonged contact with ink. Be sure to clean off any ink that gets onto its surface, and do not use it as an eyedropper pen.

I'm really impressed with this pen, its become my daily go to. Usually prefer Waterman gold nib pens, but the ability to carry this in my pants pocket is awesome. Smooth writing, starts quickly when its open while I sit listening to lenghty meetings and suddently have to write. I have a large hand, and it balances nicely. Go for it!

Beautiful but....

I was looking for a small fountain pen and purchased the Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen with a Fine Nib and Black body. I was a little hesitant given some of the reviews here at JetPens and on YouTube, but decided to try the Liliput anyway. The item really is a minimalist work of art. I really needed a pen with a clip, which this pen does not have, however, I purchased the clip that is available for the Fisher Space pen. After opening the clamp a bit to fit the larger diameter of the Kaweco, it fit perfectly and I now had a Liliput with a clip.

Use of the pen was a bit of a let down. The nib is very dry and skips quite a bit, enough to get into the annoying category. I tried on different papers and while the nib is very smooth, the inconsistency in ink delivery, using Kaweco cartridges is too much to overlook. I wrote on very absorbent paper, paper that makes the lines written look like they come from a broad or italic nib, but even with the paper sucking ink out of the beautiful little pen, it still skipped and required going back to complete letters that got no ink the first time around.

I know that this is not a high end pen, but at almost $60, I expect it to at least write. I have had 5 fountain pens prior to this one and have never had this issue with prior pens, to bad given how good the pen looks and how well it fits my needs with regards to size and purpose. Five stars for fit and finish, One star for how it writes, Three stars average.

I really like this pen. At first I thought it would be too small, but the way it is designed it fits very well in my hand when with the cap attached. It's extremely light; so much so that I sometimes forget I'm carrying it in my pocket. I will be using these as stocking stuffers this Christmas.
