With roots dating as far back as 1883, the German based company Kaweco are committed to their work and writing instruments, remaining a recognisable brand despite a troublesome past.
In 1914, Kaweco receives the "Golden Prize" from the international fair in Leipzig and rises to the challenge of a increased demand for writing instruments during the First World War. Following the WW1, the company began to produce its own gold nibs to reduce their dependence on imported American components. The economic crisis of 1928 put the firm in jeopardy, and it declared bankruptcy in 1929. The same year, the company was taken over by 'Badischen Füllfederfabrik Worringen und Grube', becoming one of the first German manufacturers to employ injection moulding. With this new technology, the brands and models of the Kaweco and Aurumia are merged; the "KA WE CO" logo, is identified in the three-part circle marking, decorating the top of the pen or pen cap of almost every writing instrument to this day. During the following years, the copany began to produce piston filler fountain pens, and continued production a smaller scale throughout WW2. Kaweco ceased production in 1970, following the death of its director and decline under his widow and sons, but the name was resurrected in 1972, before again closing in 1981. In 1995 the firm H & M Gutberlet GmbH acquired the rights to the Kaweco name, and Kaweco fountain pens are once again being produced.
In contrast to normal ball-point pens, Kaweco offer heart curve mechanics that are particularly quiet in operation, a proprietary development, also used by other pen manufacturers. The many chemical regulations also force a continuous process of change and improvement.
Kaweco tools are handsome, timeless delights both in appearance and operation. Buy into the prominent brand that has fallen and rose time and time again with famed German engineering excellence.
