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 Fireblue pen is constructed from tempered steel and features a spectacular finish. Each pen is hand-torched, giving it a unique pattern of enchanting colors ranging from light brown to purple to blue. Due to this color variation, the pen you receive will have its own unique look which may differ in color from the pens pictured.

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.

The mechanism of the pen itself is quite dependable. This is my third Liliput and I actually love these pens. I ordered it with an EF nib, and find it responsive and easy to use. I have average-sized hands, and find that posting the cap makes it a perfectly acceptable writer. It's also very nice that replacement nibs are so inexpensive. This is a very practical backup or even primary pen. I would give the pen five stars normally. However there is a substantial premium for the "Fireblue" finish, and mine is disappointing.

I saw the video on how they do these. They use a torch on the turned bodies before cleaning off the oil, yielding unpredictable color patterns on each piece. The video describes how they match similarly colored pieces so pens go out looking as though intentionally designed. I liked the pens featured on the site and in the videos. I guess some pieces are colored more vividly than others. I feel mine came from the pile left after the brighter blues and greens and reds were picked out; its got some variation on it but little color. I know it's not intended to be as bright as my titanium nitride space pen, but it's just too dingy to justify the price premium.

However -- if you get a good specimen, I'm sure it's great. And if you're not price sensitive, I do think it looks cooler than the more plain stainless steel. But mine doesn't look as nice as my brass wave Liliput, and not worth the $100 extra I paid over the black Liliput. So ***** for Liliput itself, but ** for the value of the Fireblue finish.
