TWSBI Diamond 580 Fountain Pen - Clear, Fine Nib

The idea behind the TWSBI Diamond 580 Clear fountain pen was to go back to basics and capture the simplicity and elegance of traditional writing instruments. The Diamond 580 is a classically styled fountain pen with a piston ink-filling system, smooth-writing steel nib and a screw-on cap. The traditional mechanism of the fountain pen, combined with a modern industrial design, embodies both the past and the present.

The TWSBI Diamond 580 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 Diamond 580 fountain pen has all detachable parts, as TWSBI felt that it was important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen to completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen.

Fantastic pen January 6, 2015
Reviewer: Uncle Ray from Maple Grove, MN United States  
I had been reading reviews of the TWSBI 580 and decided it was time to step up and purchase one to decide for myself, and I was not disappointed.  Great pen, great price.  It holds a lot of ink, and the fine point lays down a nice, clean line.  My next purchase will be the TWSBI Vac 700 - from Anderson Pens, of course..

Bit of a workhorse October 6, 2014
Reviewer: Lisa from Ireland  
I've been using the 580 for a while now as my everyday pen. It's a fantastic pen for the price: large ink capacity, no skips or dry starts. The nib is fairly smooth with just a bit of feedback.

Some things to note:
-The cap can post, but it makes it far too heavy at the back.
-The grip section swivels freely if the nib unit isn't screwed down tight enough, but this doesn't effect the writing experiences. However, if it's tightened too far the parts tend to creek against each other while writing.

Last but not least, it's a beautiful looking pen and looks great inked up. Also I love that it allows for a bit of tinkering with with a wrench and silicone grease provided.

Great writer, holds a lot of ink! September 17, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Just a quick note to sing the praises of the TWSBI 530 I bought from you at the Atlanta Pen Show in April.  I filled it with MB Burgundy Red on April 13.  I have written extensively with it, although probably not as much as others in my rotation.  However, I noticed that it continued to have lots and lots of ink.  I wrote more and decided to see just how far I could go, writing with it at the same level of use as before.  Today, I felt guilty and decided to do some cleaning. The reservoir still had about 1/8" of ink left. I bought the F point.  Perhaps that is uses less ink than the M.  I keep travel journals.

As impressed as I was with that, I was even more pleased when clean-up time came.  This pen has to be one of the easiest and quickest pens to maintain.  A few flushes and now it's soaking a bit.  However, it looks clean as a whistle.

I neglected to say upfront what a great writer it is.  The balance, grip and handling fit me perfectly.

Beautiful! April 18, 2013
Reviewer: Barbara Simmons from Sheboygan, WI  
I ordered this pen as a gift, so I haven't been able to test drive it, but it is beautiful. It comes in lovely packaging, with natural elements on the exterior with a cool, modern box. I was very impressed with the Anderson Pens service.
