TWSBI Diamond 580RBT Fountain Pen - Extra Fine Nib
This stunning red and blue must have pen was made in recognition of the Taiwanese heritage of TWSBI and the red white and blue of the Taiwanese flag. Please note we are selling the international version with the TWSBI logo not the Taiwanese star on the cap filigal.
TWSBI has taken everything they have learnt as premium fountain pen manufacturers and applied it. The Diamond 580 is the result. WIth the 580 comes an improved grip and barrel section, an increase in the ink volue by 30% to a massive 1.98ml. Threads on the screw caps have also improved.
TWSBI Diamond 580, a classic fountain pen with a piston ink-filling system. By fusing the traditional mechanisms of the fountain pen with a modern industrial design, TWSBI have created an eye-catching fountain pen that is simultaneously appreciative of the past and relevant in the present. The Diamond 580 comes with a benchmark ink-filling mechanism and has all detachable parts.
The idea behind the TWSBI Diamond 530, 540, and 580 was to go back to basics and capture the simplicity and elegance of traditional writing instruments. In recent years, the development and modernization of writing instruments has resulted in traditional writing instruments, such as fountain pens, falling into obscurity. It was our goal to bring the past back to life by creating a traditional fountain pen that even modern day society can appreciate.
TWSBI's belief is that it is important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen and completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen. Hence, these pens come packaged with a wrench and silicone grease. Neither of these accessories are intended to be used immediately, as they are for long-term care and maintenance. Additionally, please use extra care if you choose to disassemble the nib and feed, as the feed is very fragile. Pleae folow the instructions that accompany the pen.
Please note that this pen uses bottled ink which is not included with the pen.
