At just 3.8 inches (9.7 cm) in length when capped, the Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen is one of the smallest fountain pens that accepts standard international short cartridges. A full brass body with a wave texture gives the pen a unique look. It has a stainless steel nib, and the cap screws on the back of the pen to post securely when writing.

Cute, very sturdy pen....

Cute, very sturdy pen. It is, however, so small that no converter (not even the Kaweco squeeze filler) will fit it. Of course, I knew that buying it. My detraction of a star actually has to do with posting the cap on the back: the end is so round, that sometimes it takes a couple tries to get the cap to go on straight and thread onto the back. I find it a little annoying, as it's difficult to use the Liliput without posting the cap. Other than that, it's a great pocket or purse pen! The raw brass does oxidize quickly, leaving it look rather dull until you polish it with your fingers and natural skin oils, or with a jeweler's cloth. I only point this out for those concerned with keeping it shiny, shiny, shiny!

I have carried this pen in my pocket now for six months. It has acquired the normal patina of brass, which I find pleasant. The pen looks great with the gold Kaweco nib I put on it at purchase. I keep J. Herbin's Orange Indien ink in it, and have have found the system is reliable. It writes first time every time, and I've had no issues with flow, in spite of having done no maintenance at all.

I've never actually used the included nib and feed, having replaced it at purchase with the Kaweco gold extra fine. I cannot vouch for feed adequacy for the presumably thirstier broad nib, nor of course report any problem.

The smooth writing is amazing in a package so tiny. I keep it in a very small pocket case with a Rhodia pocket notebook and it makes a great combination.

I'm a bit tempted to throw the broad nib back on and see how I like this with a good blending ink like Noodler's Apache Sunset. I'll update this review if I give the broad nib a workout.

I really like this little pen: easily pocketable, ridges help with grabbing from said pocket, and posting is quite easy. The broad nib worked well out of the box (caveat: one should always flush a new pen), and I've been very pleased. The brass seemed a bit more dull than what I expected, however. Not a deal breaker, but evidently there are two brass versions: Satin & Eco. I seem to have the Satin version; it is not shiny like others I've seen reviewed on stationary blogs. It does seem to be developing a patina, but not like what I thought pure brass would show.
