Kaweco Special Brass Fountain Pen
The Special is a minimalist octagonal pen. This brass version is made from untreated brass - so the brass will tarnish with time and use which adds to it becoming 'a valued tool'.
Of course, you can keep it polished to a golden shine if you want to. While the brass has an almost mirror-like polish on arrival, it picks up scratches and marks very easily, its definitely a great pen for people who value the ageing process of Brass and not a shining gold appearance.
The cap unscrews and can be screwed onto the back of the barrel making it a long and heavy pen when used like this (169mm). It comes 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.
