The Kaweco Supra Fireblue - a beautiful, unique, hand finished fountain pen. The varied blue / purple / copper tones to this pen are made by each one being tempered by blowtorch, which hardens the steel while also giving it this unique colouring. This process makes no two pens exactly alike, giving each pen it's own completely unique, ombre blue finish.
Much like the brass Supra, this is a heavier, much more serious feeling fountain pen. Far chunkier than the Kaweco Sport, the supra will age and develop its own unique patina when handled over time.
The Supra is very clever. It has a removable mid-section, giving you the option to extend the barrel into a full size pen. At full size the standard Kaweco Cartridge Converter will fit comfortably inside. If you prefer a shorter, lighter feel, then you can remove the middle section for a neater, more portable pen. At this size the standard international Kaweco Cartridges will fit perfectly. The cap of the pen can be screwed on securely at the end while in use, which you'll find much more comfortable when using the pen without the mid section.
Depending on how you configure the Supra, you can find the perfect combination for your hand. The difference in size, length and weight will change the feel as you write, so it's worth trying the pen in different combinations.
The beautifully large 250 Bock nib is made from stainless steel and looks suitably impressive when compared to the Kaweco Sport or Perkeo. It's a smooth writing, fine nib with consistent ink flow. This pen is truly a pleasure to use.
