New Clips for the Kaweco Liliput

Kaweco Liliput Clip

Here’s some welcome news: Kaweco is coming out with clips for their Liliput fountain pens and ballpoint pens. Two clips, because the ballpoints and fountain pens have a different diameter.

I reviewed two of the Liliput fountain pens here, along with the large size Supra. I really liked the Liliput. It’s a very small carry-around fountain pen with a really sturdy form factor, and the excellent Kaweco stainless steel nib also used in the AL-Sport, AC-Sport and Dia2.

And I think the clip’s a great addition. Because it’s such a small pen, I like having the option to clip the Liliput in place inside a pocket or bag. I’m not sure what the clip price will be, but clips for the Sport pens range from $3 to $6 in the US, so I’m guessing “reasonable.”

Kaweco keeps impressing me, because they keep coming out with products and designs that show they are fountain pen users themselves. I really like this pen company.

  1. Laura, if Kaweco is bringing out an AL Sport (is that what you meant? Sport, not Al Star?) in red, I gotta have one! Where did you order yours from? Thanks!

    1. Thank you! Yes, you are right! (I got my Al-Sport Vibrant Pink last week. Which reminds me: metal pens are in; pass it on.)

      I saw a photo on Instagram, right here.

      I ordered mine by email from Dan Smith, the Nibsmith. I didn’t have a price or release date. I don’t even know if it’s been officially announced. I just said, “Please order me the upcoming red AL-Sport, with a broad nib.”

  2. I’ve put a bronze clip on my Fireblue Liliput, and the colors complement each other beautifully. The clip gives the Liliput a cute, retro look. Plus, it makes it perfect for clipping into my A6-size traveler’s notebook. The tiny pen looks adorable in the smaller-sized notebook. Not to mention, I love writing with it. I have several Liliputs – they’re perfect for my small hands. I think I’m on the way to collecting all colors of the Liliput. What can I say? I’m addicted!

    1. That’s a good one to be addicted to. I like how it looks in different finishes.

      Kaweco is bringing out a new AL-Sport in red that I *need* so much I have already ordered it. Despite not wanting to add any more pens. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it’s the red I’m addicted to, there.

  3. A little off topic but recently I lost the section (Yes, I fell folly to the sink drain enjoying a fountain pen part. Darn my clumsiness. ๐Ÿ˜) to my Skyline Sport and Kaweco’s customer service was very prompt and helpful in helping me source a replacement.

    1. That’s so nice to hear — the second part. ๐Ÿ™‚

      As for the first part, you are not alone. My sink swallows at least one loose Lamy Safari nib per year.

      1. I love Kaweco too! They’re also doing a big marketing push here currently – I think the importer changed 2-3 years ago and the new one is really promoting them. Almost every independent stationery store now has at least some Kaweco products, many have a big, well-stocked display, including inks. It’s big progress compared to before because it makes fountain pens as a whole much more visible locally!

  4. I do like those retro clips. They are fantastic. I am glad the Liliput will also have one for that size. I’ve never tried a Liliput, or a Supra. I do have this style on a Kaweco Skyline, and I love it.
