The Collection series will see some of our very favourite Kaweco products released in brand new fun colourways. Each pen will be available for a limited time from launch so, while these are not exactly “limited edition” runs if you like it guys, grab one while you can because they won’t be around for long!
During the Springtime the coast of Toyama district in Japan the water is illuminated by a mysterious blue sheen. This rare and spectacular phenomenon is called bioluminescence and it is caused by light-emitting creatures. In Toyama, the bioluminescence is created by the gathering of a certain species of squid called the firefly squid. Those thousands upon thousands of points of light, performing a captivating spectacle upon the water surface, are mirrored in the high-quality plastic of this fountain pen.
Depending on the particular light irradiation, the pearly pigments in the Kaweco COLLECTION Toyama Teal sparkle more or less intensively. The overall design is completed by silver elements.
Presented in a colour matched Collection cardboard packet with a special effect to the cardboard box, giving it the look of shimmering waves of water.

About the Kaweco Sport
A perfectly formed pocket-sized pen, the Kaweco Sport is an iconic design, one that is minimal and precise tracing its origins all the way back to 1911. Pitched originally as "small in the pocket, large in the hand" it still lives up to this ideal measuring a mere 10.5cm when closed, becoming a very comfortable 13.3cm in use with the oversized cap "posted".
The stainless steel smooth, free-flowing, medium width nib, is by Bock of Heidelberg. The pen uses standard international ink cartridges, but there is also a mini-converter available. Also, because of its breathe-hole-free all-plastic construction it is ideal for the bolder pen fan to create their own home "eyedropper" conversion where the whole body becomes one massive ink reservoir: the Sport is in fact held, by many aficionados, to be one of the best pens out there to do this with.
