The True Retro Beauty
Authentic retro beauty. Designed in Germany and Made in Germany. The sports series started in 1913 (that’s more than a century ago.) and go on to be the iconic product of Kaweco. Going thru aggressive refinements, the pen already arrived at its signature hexagonal design in 1934. And largely stays the same till today. There are only a few writing instruments which have been successful in the market for decades without big changes.
Almost all the elements that made the Kaweco classic beautiful comes from its heritage.
The golden brass KA WE CO circle logo on the cap top arose around 1929 and since then can be found on almost all original KAWECO writing instruments.
The same detailed circle logo can be found on the beautiful 23K gold plated steel nib manufactured by Bock of Heidelberg.
We finds the Kaweco Sports Classic White gorgeous and would recommend that you purchase a golden clip to go with it.
