Featuring a slim design and Kaweco's signature octagonal barrel shape, the Special is a classy addition to any collection.
The barrel and cap of this fountain pen are machined from solid brass, whose raw finish can be polished to stay shiny or allowed to age and develop a unique patina. The cap can be posted by screwing it onto the threading at the end of the barrel.
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. Each pen is different and the patina is natural and part of the charm. Expect to see marks and scuffs - individuality makes this pen so special.
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 Piston Converter will also fit - available separately - for use with bottled ink. 142mm long capped, 122mm uncapped, 169mm long posted. 11mm wide. Weighs 32g.
The pen comes in a tin gift box with one blue ink cartridge included inside the barrel of the pen.
