The Kaweco Liliput is a tiny fountain pen that when posted transforms into a full-sized pen that easily fits in your hand. This bright green anodized aluminum fountain pen comes with a stainless steel nib and an ink cartridge to get you started writing right away! The cap screws on to the back to post securely, and it accepts short standard international cartridges. Optional clip sold separately.

This green Liliput is a limited production run and will only be offered for a limited time.

Note: This pen comes with an ink cartridge stored in the body. If it doesn’t fall right out, you can get it loose by giving the body a few solid taps on a hard surface.

Kaweco pens are great!

To be able to leave a pen with ink in a drawer for a long time, rediscover it, admire it, and start writing, the Kaweco pens are reliable and satisfying to use. Merci, Goulet, for making the purchase of this Limited Production seamless and filled with kindness.

Kaweco Liliput�Giant among Fountain Pens

I absolutely love the Kaweco Liliput. This pen is my second after purchasing the Kaweco Liliput in Fire Blue several months ago. There is so much to like about these little pens. They're durable. They're expertly crafted. They fit comfortably in your pocket. They put down a beautiful line. My only real complaint with this pen is that it isn't quite as heavy as the Fire Blue version, which, in my view, is nearly the perfect weight for a pocket pen. Nevertheless, this version is quite a bit less expensive, which makes the pens equally worth considering for those writers in search of a high quality pocket pen.

Pens great - in the problem

I have an immunological disease which has affected my hands and fingers. The pen is just a little too thin fit me to use as is.

Great Pocket Pen

It's super light and comfortable to write with when posted. The nib is smooth, and I love the shade of green.

A good writer but some issues

This pen writes well, but I found a couple of things- the threads on the aluminum body feel a little scratchy and cheap, they don't have a smooth feel to me. The other issue is that it is a little too tiny, meaning the diameter of the body. It is so small it doesn't fit into most pen loops and I have issues with the Kaweco clip for this pen as well. Overall, if you don't want to keep it in a pen loop and don't mind the loose clip, it is a good writer and the Kaweco ink is pretty good.

FAQs about Fountain Pens

How do I fill a fountain pen with ink? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the pen's filling mechanism, which you can find in the Technical Specs section above. 

Here's a quick definition of the most common filling mechanisms:

  • Cartridge - A small, disposable, sealed plastic reservoir that holds fountain pen ink. These come pre-filled with ink, and typically you just push to insert them into place and you'll be ready to write! Check out our quick guide here.
  • Converter - A detachable and refillable ink reservoir that allows you to use bottled ink in a cartridge-accepting pen. Typically you will install the converter into the grip section, dip the nib/feed into the ink, and twist or pull the converter knob to draw ink into the converter. Here's a video for how to fill a cartridge/converter pen using a LAMY pen as an example.
  • Eyedropper - A pen that utilizes the entire barrel as a reservoir for ink. Ink is directly filled into the barrel, allowing for a high ink capacity. Here's a video on how to do it!
  • Piston - A type of filling system that uses a retracting plunger inside a sealed tube to draw ink into a pen. They are typically either twist or push-operated. These pens cannot accept cartridges or a converter, and only fill from bottled ink.
  • Vacuum - A push-style piston that uses pressure to fill the large pen body with ink. They seal the ink chamber when closed, making it ideal for flying without risk of leaking. Check out our video on how to use a vac filler here.

Check out more info on these filling mechanisms including a video on how to fill each one on our blog.

How do I clean a fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

It depends on the filling mechanism, but it mostly comes down to flushing it out with water, and sometimes a little bit of Pen Flush if the ink is really stuck. 

It's a bit easier to show than to tell, so we've put together a few quick videos showing you the process:

How often do I need to clean my fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

We recommend a good cleaning every 2 weeks, and any time you change ink colors. 

Water will usually do the trick, but we recommend you use our Goulet Pen Flush if the ink has been left in the pen for a while and could have dried up, or when you’re switching ink colors.

My pen won’t write! What do I do? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

First things first... make sure you have ink in the pen! Be sure that the ink cartridge or converter is seated properly in the pen, and that you aren't out of ink.

We always recommend you give your pen a good cleaning first, using our Goulet Pen Flush, or a drop of dish soap in some water. New pens often have some machining oil residue left in the feed, so a good cleaning often does the trick first.

If that still doesn't work, try priming the feed. This consists of either dipping your pen nib and feed in ink, or forcing ink from the converter down into the feed. 

If it’s still not working after that, please reach out to us so we can help! 

What's your return policy? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

You can submit a return request within 30 days of your order date. You can read all our Return Policies here.

To initiate a return, please submit a request at the Return Portal. Our Customer Care team might reach out to you for more information.

Please note we are unable to accept a return of any Namiki or Sailor Bespoke fountain pen for any reason once it has been used with ink. Please thoroughly inspect and dry test the pen before use.
