We’re all for the convenience of e-mail, instant messaging, texting, Facebook messages, Twitter, Google + and whatever the new electronic communication method of choice will be tomorrow, but they all feel cold and emotionless. There’s only so much that emoticons and hearts can convey, so if you really want to get your point across you need to change the medium. Writing things down with a pen and some paper isn’t convenient—and it’s definitely time consuming—but it’s also glamorous and leaves you with a sense of accomplishment you just don’t get pounding away at the keys. If you really want to make an impression, don’t use a Bic—use a Kaweco. The Liliput Al isn’t just another full-bodied aluminum masterpiece from Kaweco, it’s the reinvention of something we thought no one used anymore—fountain pens. Since you’re never more than a quick reload away it’s time to dust off the cursive.
