Kaweco Special Brass Fountain Pen
The Special is a minimalist octagonal pen. This brass version is made from untreated brass - there's nothing to protect the metal surface, meaning the brass will tarnish beautifully with time and use. You can keep it polished to a golden shine if you want to, or just let it go, and watch the metal age, reflecting your use, developing a patina that reflects its history.
The cap unscrews, and has a small o-ring to help make a perfect seal and to make sure the cap can be put on the pen aligned such that the facets of the barrel line up with those on the cap. It can also screw onto the back of the barrel to use posted, though it's quite a long and heavy pen when used like this.
While the brass has an almost mirror-like polish on arrival, it picks up scratches and marks very easily, and our stock here has some small scuffs and marks from the factory - this isn't a finish for those who want their pens to look pristine!
Supplied with a short international cartridge in blue. The Kaweco Mini Squeeze Converter and the Mini Piston Converter will also fit - available separately - for use with bottled ink.
