Kaweco is a German brand of writing implements, originally introduced by the Heidelberg Pen Company for its dip pens line in 1889. Kaweco became a public limited company in 1921, then being taken over by the Knust Woringen and Grube company (KWG), after Kaweco went bankrupt in 1930.
In 1994, the Gutberlet GmbH, a cosmetics company based in Nuremberg, acquired the rights to the "Kaweco" name. The core competency is the production and distribution of fine writing instruments including accessories.
The quality of good things is an experience that goes well beyond a single sense. Our passion goes just as deep for the smallest of details as it does for the huge difference between our writing instruments and cheap, mass-made products. Our designs stem from another era when tradition and craftsmanship were still synonymous and some clocks seemed to go a little slower. We took the fascination Kaweco pens had back in the days and translated these values to today’s refined and increasingly demanding times.
Creating products that keep the given promise of standing up to being much loved and seasoned companions every single day of the journey, time and time again.
Good things take time and we take the long list of steps and tasks necessary to build your next writing instrument more than just seriously. The manufacturing process and quality control still lay in our very own, skilled hands, right here in Nuremberg. A city rich with tradition and appreciation for writing instruments, renowned well beyond its infamous walls. Local tradition and technology from afar meet in every single one of our products: Like the premium mechanics from PRECO/Iwasaki Japan for example.
