I love this pen. I love the compactness of it and the design is beautiful. Even the graphics are a great design feature. The only negative thing I can say about this pen is that I wish the fine nib were as fine as my Kaweco AL Sport fountain pen. I don't know why there is a difference in the two nib ink widths when I write. The nib on both of my pens are clearly labeled with an "F". Maybe I will have to purchase the black color Liliput just to see if I get a finer nib :) Jetpens owns me! I am glad they are a source for the Kaweco's. I think both Jetpens and Kaweco are fair in the pricing of these pens.

I have a lot of fountain pens, all of them with unique characteristics setting them apart. This Kaweco Liliput I like better than my Kaweco sport due to its small size. When closed it easily fits into your pants or shirt pocket without notice (as it doesn't have a clip). It has a sturdy design as the cap secures to the base with a screw function that is solid with no wobbling. It is about as thin as a pencil so users with large hands may not like the width. The fine tip is more of a 0.8 line than an expected 0.5 width I prefer. I was hoping to use a Ohto Fountain Pen Converter but the base area for the ink cartridge is too small to hold it. The price may seem high but the quality, compact size and craftsmanship justifies the higher price. I would give it 5 stars if the line was thinner and a inkwell converter were available. A good purchase nonetheless.

I love this pen. Like all the other Kawecos, it's a smooth, wet writer. It starts right up every time, and its small size makes it the ideal go-anywhere pen. It has a very classy, well-made feel to it. I love the sleek silver. Mine is a Fine nib. I do a lot of sketching with it as well as writing, and it has no trouble keeping up with me. I've done a review on my blog post with photos at this link: http://hudsonvalleysketches.blogspot.com/2012/05/willow-tree-in-front-yard-and- lilliput.html

Excellent pen. The small size does not contribute to fatigue as I expected. Fits comfortably in my hand for extended note sessions. Using Kaweco or even Private Reserve cartridges, the cap can be off for over a minute before the flow skips on startup. The nib stays remarkably clean -- no ink anywhere. I am used to my sloppy Lamy Safari, which gets ink all over the grip and nib and requires weekly cleaning.

I love keeping it in my pants pocket since I do not always have a shirt pocket for longer pens with clips. Now I just carry it everywhere.

The fine nib leaves a broader line than I hoped, but not bad enough to take off a star.
