I’m trying something a little different for this giveaway: to enter, simply leave a comment below indicating how you use (or would use) such a little pen on a day-to-day basis.

  • Suren R

    I would use it for taking meeting notes in office.

  • Looks like the perfect front pocket carry around size.

  • Pascal Leers

    In the good old times ,a knight Always had a small spare blade on his person. Usually a dagger. Just in case the main sword is lost. I see the liliput as such an replacement. An emergency backup for the main pen. (In my case the Pelikan M1000).

    • 你好,不知道你看不看懂中文!Hello, I don’t know you can’t read Chinese.

      • Pascal Leers

        Unfortunately I can’t.

        • 嘿嘿,我也只能靠翻译来完成的!你是喜欢钢笔的吗?

        • Hey, I can only rely on the translation to complete! Do you like pens?

  • Jason Lo

    Mm, as someone else here said, I normally carry around pens in my pockets (livin’ on the edge) so small pens are always wonderful!

  • miguel oxamendi

    Taking notes at work!

  • sitnstew

    I’d use it to sign prescriptions

  • Paul Clouse

    I work in a factory and have to fill out multiple job orders each day. Having a fancy pen reminds me there’s still a little white on this blue collar.

  • Carolyn

    I would hand it to each of my students to try. Such a great pen to put in the hands of a bevy of novice fountain pen users!

  • Rob

    This pen can be put in a pocket or left in a pencil case without taking up too much room and serve as a backup or primary pen depending on the situation. I can certainly see myself tucking it in a pocket when running errands without worrying about a resin or acrylic pen cracking.

  • dan

    Perfect pocket carry for day to day notes

  • Joshua Bowman

    I would try using it for a daily carry, and if it turns out to be to small for me to comfortably use, I would pass it on to someone who might be able to better use it.

    I’d use it to replace the one I lost from my Filofax planner!

    I would most probably use it in the same way as each other pen – take it to my office and write everything with it :))

  • Kalutika

    The same way I use my other pens. For sketching out new designs and taking notes on pattern.

  • Gordon

    A pen like this would probably become my go-to ‘carry with me’ pen – small enough to keep in my pockets at all times (and probably wind up ‘stonewashed’, or at least laundry-washed, before long…). Thanks for doing another give-away!

  • Chuck G

    I would also pocket carry it for those on the go notes!

  • Vanessa

    I like so small pens and I would replace my J. Herbin Rollerball with the Liliput from KAWECO. I will write the quick notes in my classes at university.

  • Matthew Birch

    I would finally have a pen that could fit in the pen holder on my filofax

  • Guido

    I would put it safely in my midori pouch then use it to write down my thoughts, todo, notes …

    I have been looking for a pocket pen. This would be perfect for when I don’t want to carry a bag or anything.

  • Indira

    I don’t own any pen that’s this small, so it’s a bit hard to say how useful it would be. It would be interesting to see if it would be comfortable for longer writing sessions, or only useful for short notes.
    Thanks for the review and the giveaway.

  • Hilary Ann Golden

    This has been on my wishlist! Thanks for the giveaway. I’d love this pen for sermon writing and note taking!

  • Smithman

    I would keep it on nightstand tray with wallet, money clip, change, and other things that go into pockets when leaving the house. That way unless I’m planning to take a pen case to go to a meeting or some such, I can always have a fountain pen to grab at the last minute.

  • Daniel

    I would use this as the pen on weekend adventures! It would hold up to walking/riding all day and take great notes to keep track of what I do!

  • Elizabeth Hall

    Hi Matt, Thanks for the Giveaway! I would use this little pen for my Midori and for all of my studying needs! It would be easy for me to be able to have a small pen because i’m only a kid so its right like I love it! Also I’d have a pen that you’d reviewed and that would be awesome!

    Perfect pen to pair with my Midori Traveler’s Notebook 🙂

  • Yulisa

    I would use it for note taking at the office!

  • Sahil

    Carry it everywhere to mainly remind myself that I actually won a giveaway. And then some writing.

    This seems like an ideal pocket fountain pen. I have an ice sport and have been contemplating the al-sport or Lilliput. I would use as an EDC pocket pen.

  • kerim

    If i would get this pen i would probably pass it to someone else because shipping to my country would probably be too expensive

  • matthew Beddow

    I would use it as a trouser pocket pen when i’m on the move doing automotive process audits

  • Mark Knoblauch

    These Kaweco pocket pens are ideal for an everyday carry in the Florida summer when I can’t stand wearing shirts with breast pockets and resort to knit polos only. I am in sales, cover a good chunk of the state and currently use a Classic Sport as my pocket pen but would love to have this Liliput as a back up. I would definitely use all of the cartridges, too!

    I could use this little pen for when I travel to our new store openings! Show it to all my new friends 🙂

    I would use this small pen to be my carrying pen, or the pen that would be used on the day-to-day tasks

  • bryan

    It will be put into my pocket to be used at times where my pencil case is not with me while having the opportunity to share the wonderful side of fountain pens to non-fountain pen users 🙂

  • Corbin Sweenie

    I have been using fountain pens for about 3 months now and your YouTube channel was the first one I ever saw about fountain pens. You immediately got me even more excited about using fountain pens. I binge watched all your videos and reviews. This pen would be very useful to me and I would really like this pen to help expand my collection. 🙂

  • Bruno Novello

    i’d use it as a back up if i ever run out of ink in my converter pens,as a sealed ink cartridge can be kept inside the pen for a long time.

  • Rafael Pappalardo

    It would be a nice addition to the J. Herbin ink roller which is in my bag.

  • Minimal Mo

    I have a space Fischer Space pen fit snuggly in my wallet that of course goes everywhere with me. The Liliput would be the perfect replacement with the great added benefit of a higher quality writing experience. 🙂

  • P.Panagiotidis

    Taking notes in my Midori Traveler’s passport notebook

    I use a Kaweco Sport Classic as a pocket pen for making notes and signing things around the shop. This would be a serious upgrade.

    This would be perfect for my EDC gear.

  • Marco

    I would use it to write baseball scorecards down while watching the cards.

  • Jin Han

    I would use it for summarizing the chapters of my subjects.

  • Karen Y.

  • Tom A

    I would use it as a perfect match for my small notepad to jot down notes throughout the day! Thanks for creating such interesting videos

  • Paul Cat

    This is a no brainer for me. As a school teacher I still do lots of writing. I would use this pen to inspire minds, grad papers, write notes to parents and students.

    Also, I will be walking the Camino in June, and this looks like it would be the perfect travel pen.

    My wife would probably commandeer it – she loves Kaweco Sport pens.

  • gravesit

    Would be my on the go pen used for taking random notes when I am out and about.

  • ernesto gonzález

    Matt, i enjoy your videos and comments, as a good and delicious story, among the informative content you deliver. First time i saw your blog was looking for calligraphy pages. As a matter of fact from time to time i also take a look to Peter Unbehauen calligraphy videos. I would use this little pen to practice a bit of calligraphy (even when i think, it will be diffucult to calligraph because is not a flex pen) and to write as a easy to carry writing tool for making important notes.

  • Dylan

    I would definitely use this for school! A great little size for that everyday pocket carry!

    I would pair this pen with a travel notepad and use for note taking while on the road.

    The perfect pocket pen for jotting down ideas!

  • Elcheb

    I would use it to draw, so tiny, everytime in my pocket! 🙂

  • Qiyou Lu

    I am a student, and I will always keep it in my pocket as I take notes very often. I love how my Classic Sport and AL Sport performs.
    I have been practising calligraphy for a year, and I will buy calligraphy nibs for the Liliput.
    Thank you for your reviews! They are very helpful.

  • Nerdatron

    I would definitely use this as my daily carry when I’m out of the house.

    I would use that pen for my school assignments, writing letters, sketching, and getting noticed.

  • Pen Lovin’ MSIII

    I have an old sailor 21k pocket pen I use in the clinics while taking patient notes/writing in the chart (I’m a third year medical student), but I’ve been looking for a second small pen to hold another color to emphasize abnormal physical exam findings, lab values, etc. I think this would do the trick!

  • Christopher McClure

    This would be great for carrying around work and taking notes.

  • Anthony Kelley

  • Jack

    This pen would be perfect for quick notes in my Midori Traveler’s Notebook.

  • I would love to be able to give this to my 13 year old son.

    It’s the perfect size for a child and I feel that this is often ignored when manufacturers consider the sizes of their pens. In fact, they usually concentrate more on making the pens bigger (i.e. Berrol starter pens) rather than designing for those that can control a pen but have smaller hands.

    It’s like playing football (soccer) with a full size ball when you’re a kid, it makes no sense!

    This seems like it would be perfect for a travel sketching pen! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  • cezovski

    I would carry it in my purse. I am always in need of a pen and it’s nice that it doesn’t take up a lot of room!

  • Besides what ever pens I decide to carry for the day I put a small pen in the right front pocket as backup. The Liliput could be that pen.

  • CaptainGroovy

    The Kaweco Liliput looks like it would be the EDC fountain pen for me to complement the Fisher “Space Bullet ballpoint pen” I have been carrying for decades. I have been looking for that perfect little fountain pen for a long time now and this looks to be everything the Kaweco Sport is not and that is rounded. It could be the fountain pen that completes my little compact carry writing kit. My “CCWK” is one part of what many people now call there EDC gear. Long before the term “Everyday Carry EDC” was coined I just called my VIPS or 6 P S&%t aka Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance S&%t. I could go one but to suffice to say I always have a small format notebook and Fisher space pen and want to add a small fountain pen and the Liliput looks like it could fit the bill to a T

    I thought I commented already … now I can’t find it.

  • Eayer1130

    I would use this pen as a pocket pen to carry with my smaller notebooks.

  • Philip Wrage

    Of course, I would use this Diminutive Instrument to draft my treatises against those primitive and cowardly Blefuscudians upon the controversy surrounding the proper way to eat boiled eggs (and store large integers in modern processors, for that matter). As all those loyal to the Crown (and to the x86) know, the proper way is clearly Little Endian.
