Kaweco

Kaweco Classic Sport (1935)

Founded in 1883 by Heinrich Kock und Rudolph Weber as the Heidelberger Federhalterfabrik, KaWeCo (Koch, Weber & Co) is a manufacturer of writing instruments. In 1929, pen factory Knust, Grube & Woringen bought most of the inventory along with the Kaweco name, and began to produce piston filler fountain pens.

The production of luxury fountain pens went down and the company focused on its more affordable models, promoting the Classic Sport line to its flagship product. For decades the Kaweco Classic Sport has been successful in the market without big changes. The current Sport pens still follow the design of the year 1935 with the chunky octagonal body, offering excellent grip and a robust feel, despite their pocketable size and minimal weight.
