TWSBI fountain pens are loved for their high quality and affordability, offering advanced filling mechanisms normally reserved for much more expensive fountain pens. The Diamond 580 features a modern, eye-catching design, with a transparent body that shows off the pen's inner workings. Its faceted barrel catches light and makes your ink shine, and it also helps keep the pen from rolling away. The high-capacity piston filling mechanism is easily operated by twisting the knob at the end of the barrel counter-clockwise to extend the piston, submerging the nib in ink, then screwing the knob tight to retract the piston, drawing ink into the pen straight from the bottle—no need for cartridges or a converter! Be careful, operating the piston while ink is in the pen will cause ink to leak out of the pen.

In keeping with their philosophy of promoting the traditional experience of using a fountain pen, TWSBI has designed this pen to be completely self-serviceable. It comes with a wrench and a vial of silicone grease you can use for at-home maintenance.

This pen can be refilled from any fountain pen ink bottle, but for clean and easy refilling, try a TWSBI Diamond 50 Ink Bottle, which has a special component designed specifically for refilling TWSBI Diamond fountain pens.

The pen comes in an attractive clear plastic case with a clean, modern design.

For protection, the plastic case is packaged in a cardboard box. This cardboard box is fragile and may get crumpled during shipping.

This pen only uses bottled ink, which is not included with this pen. Check out our collection of bottled fountain pen inks here!

Wow. I never knew going...

Wow. I never knew going up in fountain pens mattered. The Lamy 20-25 buck one is just trash compared to this one in terms of aesthetics, ergonomics, and flow. The broad tip is awesome, I use it for writing even though I write pretty small. I mainly got it because I've used medium and below, they just get scratchy, dry, and the inks can't really show case their glory - especially if you got a pilot iroshishizuku ink container that has many shades and fades in each stroke (Yuyake is the best one). It is really simple to use, holds a lot of ink, and it looks really cool. The Lamy's nib feels like a nail. And the grip section is kind of annoying when you want to write in different angles. It's definitely a lot wetter than the Lamy Broad nib too. I've had barely any feedback aside from when I wrote so fast that it was drying it out faster than the ink could reapply - but it wasn't much compared to using the fine nib. That was insanely scratchy.

Watch some youtube videos around, there are a lot of small things that I enjoy about this pen - like the kick ass logo on the lid, being able to see all the parts being a demonstrator pen, and seeing the ink! It's really unique how changing the ink essentially changes the barrel. Plus, it's really nice not having to use a converter. Sometimes getting ink when there is almost none left in a container can be really annoying - and yes, I am doing it with it attached to the pen through suction via nib. I mean I got a small cone graduated cylinder so i could get the very bits of ink left in one of my bottles since its pretty hard to do that through this method under normal circumstances since you must have the nib fully immersed in the ink.
