This is just a quick look at a limited edition Kaweco Liliput in purple. It’s one of just fifty in this colour, available from Most Wanted Pens.
It’s got an aluminium body so feels a little lighter then the brass version I’ve previously reviewed in more depth. It also feels less robust. Whereas the brass Liliput gains from being thrown into a bag or pocket, the brass picking up character as it goes along, this purple one will need more care. There are signs the purpleness is coming off the threads already and so I suspect it will scratch off the barrel if not looked after.
However, it does look pretty cool.
You’ll see it sports one of Kaweco’s black nibs. These nibs look great but feel a lot stiffer than the steel ones.
