Kaweco is a German brand of fountain pens, pencils. ballpoint pens, and more, originally introduced by the Heidelberg Pen Company for its dip pens line in 1889.
The Kaweco brand originated in 1883, when the "Heidelberger Federhalter Fabrik" ("Heidelberg Dip Pen Factory") was founded by the gentlemen Luce and Enßlen in Heidelberg. Wooden dip pens and fountain pens were produced, while gold nibs manufactured by A. Morton & Co. were imported from New York.
The businessmen Heinrich Koch and Rudolph Weber took over the dip pen factory in 1889 and set-up a new production facility in Handschuhsheim, right outside of Heidelberg. The products were marked with the brand names Perkeo, Omega, and Kaweco and were stamped with the initials HF, which stands for Heidelberger Federhalterfabrik (Heidelberg dip pen factory). Shortly after, the brand name Kaweco became the company name under which the products are still distributed today.
