I have been using the Kaweco Lilliput for many years buy find it sometimes rather cumbersome to both unscrew the cap and screw it back to the posted position before being able to write. Obviously, this only takes a couple of second at most -- but when writing plenty short notes, it can really disrupt your flow.
I therefore wanted to try the Traveler's Brass Pen and I am really positively surprised. I have only used it for a couple of weeks thus far, so I cannot comment on long-term use. I was somewhat concerned of not being able to source replacement parts in the future, but my understanding is, that certain nib assemblies of the Schmidt company should fit.
The story of Traveler's Company began in 2006, back then under the name Midori. It was that very year when this Japanese company started making its most famous article: the universial and famed Traveler's Notebook. In 2009 its smaller Passport version was introduced and in 2014 the company started manufacturing high-quality brass accessory. All of these have one thing in common. Two things actually. They are of superb quality and mature to even greater beauty over time.
When brass and Japanese art combine, the result should by all standards be great. And it is, because this compact fountain pen is beautiful in every situation. Brass gradually gains a patina, aging to beauty and looking great.
The pen tip is equipped with a practical removable eyelet. The package contains one black cartridge. We also offer ink cartridges in black and blue.
