TWSBI Diamond 580 Aluminum Fountain Pen.

TWSBI fountain pens have become one of the most popular companies with a loyal following that's growing by the day. With a name inspired from centuries of classic Chinese calligraphy and culture, TWSBI has come from over 40 years of manufacturing in plastics and metal to create a fountain pen balancing modern aesthetics and mechanical function. Traditional writing instruments have been redesigned to become the perfect tool for our modern world. The 580 Aluminum has all the great features fans have grown to love with the 580: a clear body allowing you to see you ink, but now sporting a sleek aluminum section. The piston fill mechanism is clean and smooth, and holds a considerable amount of ink. Best of all - you can fully disassemble your pen so you can clean it properly and easily. Simple and elegant, yet completely usable for everyday writing. The cap does not post on the back of the pen.

Comes with a small vial of silicone grease and a wrench for disassembly.

Dimensions: Capped 5.6 inches
Weight: 28g

Please note that no ink comes with this pen - use with any type of bottled fountain pen ink.

5 of 5 My favourite pens April 14, 2020
Reviewer: Peter John R Buchan from Winnipeg, MB Canada  
I own 3 Diamond 580 Aluminum pens in a variety of colours. I bought the first when I was thinking of getting back into using fountain pens after a long hiatus, and honestly fell in love with them. I find them very comfortable to use, and have a M, F and EF nib. They work well will a variety of inks: I've used Lamy, Quink and Noodler's in them and, while I have had to play around with the consistency of inks to match the nib size, that is to be expected. The only concern I've had is that the caps have a tendency to break along the metal ring, but the TWSBI  North America rep has been extremely helpful and quick to respond with replacements free of charge, something that impresses me even more than the pens themselves. Definitely worth the purchase!

5 of 5 First Pen - I love it April 4, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from ON Canada  
I bought the TWSBI Diamond 580 Aluminium in Extra-Fine 7 months ago and have been using it as my only pen this entire time. I take it to school and work, never had a problem. The piston-filler is very easy to use and you get a lot of writing done before you need to refill it. I've been using Sailor Jentle Midnight Blue ink and when writing on proper paper it really is a treat.

5 of 5 Makes my hand happy November 15, 2014
Reviewer: MJ from Saint John, NB Canada  
This is an excellent pen. It feels good in the hand, the weight balanced. The materials and workmanship are apparent when you first pick it up, and the details only go to bolster those first impressions. I am very happy with this pen and will keep my eye out for other TWSBI pens.

5 of 5 Very nice August 25, 2014
Reviewer: Arun from Calgary, AB Canada  
I have bought quite a few pens in the past few years and either ended up giving them away as gifts or re-selling them because I didn't end up liking them. I will be keeping this 580 for a long time to come. I haven't enjoyed holding a pen in my hand like this in a long time. It's wider than any of my Lamy or Pilot pens that I've been using, but because it's plastic it is still fairly light. The aluminum pieces do make it look and feel like a more expensive pen though. The medium nib is what I would consider medium should look like on the page and it is smooth and has not blotted on me so far.
I like that TWSBI includes the little wrench so you can take the pen apart for tune ups and what not.
