The TWSBI Diamond 580ALR fountain pen in Prussian Blue features a clear acrylic body, cap and turning knob, blue trim, a brushed aluminum grip section, as well as a piston ink-filling system, smooth-writing steel nib and a screw-on cap. The aluminum in the new 580ALR has been updated with circular engravings in the grip and cap area, and a subtle matte finish.

The TWSBI Diamond 580AL piston ink-filling system uses only bottled ink and the clear body allows the user to view the level of ink remaining in the pen at all times. The pen cap has an inner cap liner that maintains a thorough seal when the pen is not in use. The traditional mechanism of the fountain pen, combined with a modern industrial design, embodies both the past and the present.

TWSBI believes that it is important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen, in order to completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen. The TWSBI pen packaging includes a wrench and silicone grease.

** Please note that these accessories are not intended to be used immediately, as they are better used for long-term care and maintenance. In addition, please use extra care if you choose to disassemble the pen, as breakage or cracking could occur if done incorrectly.

Outstanding, Affordable Demonstrator Pen

This is my first TWSBI, and I have to say I'm very impressed. It's a substantial pen in terms of size and weight, but it is certainly comfortable to use. The 1.1mm stub is great (and seems a bit wider than a Lamy 1.1 mm stub). As usual, Anderson Pens was a pleasure to deal with.

stub nib on an inexpensive pen is fun

I bought this because I wanted to try the stub nib and the price was very reasonable. First, it is a terrific pen for the money. I own several much more expensive pens and now use this. I do have a complaint which I'm fairly certain is the consequence of being left-handed. On occasion the pen will stop writing. I twist it ever so slightly (which changes the angle of the pen to the paper) to solve the problem. The effect of the stub nib is great. It holds a lot of ink. That the pen uses bottled ink rather than a cartridge was a bonus for me.
