TWSBI Pens

TWSBI
If you are looking for a TWSBI item not listed on our website contact customer service. We are often able to get TWSBI pens and inks not listed.

TWSBI has been created from the Chinese phrase "San Wen Tong" which means "Hall of Three Cultures". This phrase brings to mind the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures created by Emperor Qianlong. The initials were reversed creating "TWS" and "Bi" was then added which literally means "writing instruments". The result is TWSBI.

TWSBI offers a high-quality product for a reasonable price allowing writing instruments to be loved by many. They create many different aesthetically pleasing designs that look great but write just as well.

Customer Reviews

Vac700R
These are great pens, But my last one never showed up and I have emailed Pen Chalet about this issue with no response thus far. Great pen, not great customer service.

To revisit my previous review:

I erred. I did not flush the pen before I filled it the first time. Now, having flushed it in the course of changing inks, I can say it is spot-on for the nib width. Full marks.

My favorite TWSBI. I’ve had no trouble with the plated nib, and I love that the cap and piston nob have translucent color like many ECOs do.

My first fountain pen. The pen is working well. I am learning how much fun changing inks and experimenting with color can be. I will be buying more TWSBI pens with different nibs to continue my experimenting.

This pen writes very smoothly and I swear holds an entire jar of ink in one go. Only drawback is the piston twists easily and could drip if turned. Will buy other styles of this pen in the future.

ECO White Rose Gold
I have only wonderful things to say about this TWSBI fountain pen (actually ALL TWSBIs). It is a solid, modern fountain pen - well designed and beautifully made. This particular pen is accented with rose gold trim which gives it more of a corporate look, while still maintaining its contemporary look and style.

ECO White Rose Gold
it's so beautiful. it's absolutely stunning, i'm blown away. it's probably the prettiest pen that i own, and it works FANTASTICALLY, but what do you expect? it's TWSBI. sad that it was about $20 extra (when compared to a normal eco), but it was 100% worth it.

Vac700R
This thing is huge, capacity-wise. And it has an impossibly smooth glide across the page, letting it move as though on wings while I transfer my thoughts to paper.

My initial fill was with Heart of Darkness. With that ink and a medium nib, it wrote more like a broad. Still glassy smooth, but wider than it was marked. I replaced the nib with a fine, and got the line width I wanted.

ECO
I have a few assorted TWSBI pens in my collection. I like them all. They are beautifully made and great writers. So...when the ECO and ECO T models came out, my OCD side came out and I have to have each color. To go with whatever shirt I'm wearing, of course! I get compliments every time I carry one. The "demonstrator" barrel always grabs their attention. (Yes, the ink color coordinates with the pen.??) Always glad I shop at Pen Chalet!

Really nice empty bottle. Thick glass feels like it would be hard to break. Perfect for mixing up a batch of your mix or taking some ink to the office. Cap is great. Will not leak.

A few years ago I got a TWSBI 580 for my birthday, and it’s the only pen I’ve had that isn’t fussy with my Organics Studio Nitrogen ink, so I knew TWSBI made good pens & good nibs. So I decided to give this one a shot too. SO glad I did!
EXCELLENT PEN! I got an EF, because I like a really fine line, and it does not disappoint! It writes so smoothly, not all scratchy like some other EF’s, and it’s super reliable. No hard starts or sudden stops. And it holds plenty of ink too. This has become one of my new favorite pens, right alone with my Acrylic Konrad & my Vanishing Points!
I ordered another one, to have a spare...

Great fine nib, writes well, and is an unbeatable value, meaning my $36 was extremely well spent.
It makes for a great beginner pen although it's not my first. I'm cool like that. I'm the king of Chinese pens. They knew about me in middle school. Today all my friends are jealous and I'm 26 years old and Madelyn please call me, I love you and that 50 page essay that I hand-wrote and mailed to you proves it. My handwriting is still good Madelyn, please, come back. Fantastic pen, would buy again.

Vac700R
I really loved the fit and finish of the Vac700R. This is only my 2nd fountain pen so take it with a grain of salt but I choose this pen because prior to covid I drive around a lot for work. This causes frequent fluctuations in elevation and I don't want to minimize the risk of getting ink all over my files or me. I chose a medium nib and it is really smooth but puts down a fairly thicker line than I had hoped. That is purely subjective however. Price and shipping were awesome and I look forward to purchasing more pens in the future from Pen Chalet.

Diamond 580
Always a dependable writer! I have four of these babies now, and each worked perfectly out of the box. My sole complaint would be that the EF nib isn't as EF as some others one can obtain - but they're fine enough.

Diamond 580ALR
I actually received this purple pen by mistake, but Pen Chalet promptly resent the Nickel color I ordered. I already had the 580 AL with a Fine nib, which I loved, so got this one with the Extra Fine nib. Perfect for sketching. It is easy to hold and fill. The nib is very responsive, and does not feel scratchy. The ribs on the grip feel good, although a bit of a pain to get cleaned up if ink gets there during refill, so just take your time wiping it for a little longer! I highly recommend it if you want a beautiful high quality pen that is reliable and won’t break the bank!!

Gorgeous! I got the broad nib, which is great for writing letters. It writes very smoothly but is a bit finnicky about the angle. This is only my second-ever fountain pen, but I'm glad I got it.
