About the Kaweco Company:


There were times when Montblanc, Pelikan or other European pen makers,

would look at a Kaweco pen first before making their own.

Kaweco at the end of the 19th century and up to the 70’s, was one of the biggest manufacturers in Europe,

everyone had a Kaweco pen, they stood out from the competition

as they made the highest quality and best designed pens at the time.

The companywas founded in 1883 as“Koch Weber & Co”by

the friends Luce Koch and Enßlen Weber inHeidelberger Germany,

KochWeber &CO, thusKA WE CO.

They had a great start and up to 1929 they had several thousand employees, with revenue at over a million DM.

However, in 1929, the same year Pelikan patented their piston filler,

Kaweco filed for bankruptcy, unbelievably as they could not sustain their enormous growth.

A considerably smaller fountain pen company known asAurumia,

bought the factory, and decided to use the same name old name Kaweco,

as it represented superb writing instruments. Since 1920's up to late 1970’s,

Kaweco made some of the most luxurious pens in Europe, the most expensive and high end pens,

extraordinarily build quality. By the late 1940's Kaweco had at least one major retail store in all bigger cities,

from London to Istanbul, and this was not the case with any other manufacturer in Europe.
