TWSBI Swipe Fountain Pen - Ice Blue
The SWIPE is the newest model from TWSBI. It comes with two different filling mechanisms: a spring loaded piston converter, and TWSBI proprietary ink cartridge. One of each is included! You can also fill the entire barrel with ink with an eyedropper or purchase a TWSBI piston converter separately.
This pen has an ice blue body and cap, a clear grip section so you can see your ink flowing, and has a push/snap cap. It is completed with a silver stainless steel nib.
The SWIPE uses the same #4 size nib as the TWSBI ECO and the TWSBI GO. It can also accept the new TWSBI 1.4ml extra large ink cartridges or any standard international ink cartridges.
Inspired by writing
After 50 plus years as an OEM manufacturer for different global brands, Ta Shin Precision decided to start selling under their own brand, and thus TWSBI was born.
TaShin Precision has over 50 years of experience in manufacturing with plastics and metals. Early products ranged from toy lego parts to high end writing instruments. This knowledge trickles down into every product TWSBI has to offer.
TWSBI's name stands for the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or "San Wen Tong" in Chinese. The character "Wen" translates into language and culture. The phrase "San Wen Tong" also brings to mind the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures created by Emperor Qianlong as a memorial to three great masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy. The initials of the phrase "San Wen Tong" was reversed and thus turned into "TWS". The last letters "Bi" was added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments". Thus combining the two segments, creating TWSBI.
