TWSBI Pens

TWSBI
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.

The Ta Shin Precision company has over 50 years as an OEM manufacturer with plastics and metals. They have created a wide range of products and TWSBI was born under the company selling writing instruments as their own brand.

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.

The TWSBI mission is to inspire and recapture the romanticism of art and literature...starting with the pen.

To achieve this mission they are dedicated to manufacturing the highest quality and precision writing instruments, tailoring products to their customer's wants and needs, and providing sincere and dedicated customer service.

TWSBI ECO Smoke Rose Gold
This is a lovely pen in the Smoke Rose Gold - my favorite ECO, of course! I'm new to TWSBI, and this ECO is my first, actually. I watched many reviews, which are always favorable to the TWSBI ECO, and motivated me to try TWSBI. I'm definitely NOT disappointed and love writing with this pen. I plan to buy a few different nib sizes and switch out the nib from time to time just to vary my writing experience. Pen Chalet shipped promptly and my beautiful new TWSBI ECO arrived in perfect condition. Thank you, Pen Chalet!

TWSBI ECO
While TWSBI isn’t my favorite brand of pens, they’re a great value. I do like the 580ALR nib much better than the ECO, but they’re a great piston starter pen.

TWSBI Diamond 50ml Glass/Red
I own one of these already and just bought two more. I want different colors of ink in each one. That should tell you what you need to know about them. In case that's not enough though, here is more.

If you love fountain pens, as I do, you know that using a bottle of ink is the way to go over cartridges. While the little plastic guys have the convenience of being able to stick one in your pocket, or in some cases in the barrel of the pen, when you figure the cost per ounce of the ink, a bottle is dramatically more affordable. Using a bottle can sometimes be annoying, no doubt. Some people fear they will spill, I get that. Having had inky hands, I get that.

When I first learned about this bottle, the TWSBI Diamond 50, I watched a bunch of YouTube videos before I decided to buy it. It is designed to work with most TWSBI pens. I own a TWSBI mini classic. That design may cause some people not to consider this inkwell for their needs but it will work for you too. You don't need a TWSBI pen. Of course...you probably want a TWSBI pen if you don't have one.

The bottle has two lids. The first lid has a small port in it. That's all. So the idea of spilling it ends there. The pen just attaches to this port and fills from there. Magic. But, if you don't have a TWSBI the port is graduated, having a second step, that allows a standard (universal) converter to snap right in and fill from the port. So clean! I have found this works for universal and Visconti converters (standard, not deluxe. It will not work with the deluxe Visconti).

If you don't have one of those you can open the second lid and the bottle functions like a classic inkwell with full access to the ink.

It has a small plastic cone inside that you tip ink into (lid closed of course) and this allows you to use all the ink in the bottle. I suggest you watch some YouTube videos as well as they do a better job explaining than I do.

In summary - high quality materials, design, and function. Very well worth the money if you write with a fountain pen.

TWSBI ECO
So happy with this pen. Love the green color; it looks fantastic with Diamine Apple Glory in it. It writes perfectly - not too wet, not too dry, just right. Love the ink capacity and the transparent barrel so I can watch the ink slosh. Very happy with my purchase.

TWSBI Replacement
I bought this to replace a stub nib on my TWSBI AL Mini. Nothing wrong with the stub, I just found that I didn't enjoy writing with it as much as I thought I might. Anyway, this replacement nib worked great right out of the box. I received my order in a timely fashion as well. Thanks Pen Chalet :)

TWSBI ECO
I love this pen - the color, the weight, the F nib and especially the ink capacity. I also have a purple Eco with a medium nib, which is pretty, but it absolutely gushes ink. I cannot use it at work because it bleeds through most everything. This green pen, on the other hand, looks great, and writes beautifully without gushing all over the cheap office paper I deal with every day. At this price point, I don't have to stress about wera and tear hauling this pen around with me. This is a fantastic every day writer!

TWSBI Diamond 580 Smoke Rose Gold
A great pen - writes very smoothly and holds a lot of ink. The rose gold trim looks classy and stands out from the rest of the black and transparent body.

TWSBI Diamond 580 Smoke Rose Gold
Since I had ordered ink cartridges for my old pen from Pen Chalet, I went to your website when looking for a replacement. After looking through the website, I was still uncertain about selecting a pen and called customer service. I spoke with a very helpful sales associate, Deb (could have been Debra or Debbie), who went out of her way to help me make a selection. She suggested the Diamond 580 Smoke Rose Gold pen I purchased. In addition, she helped me get this great pen at a discount price because she found it in the return section. After a bit of a delay due to travel, I've been using the pen for about a week. It was easy to fill, the nib is very smooth, and ink flow is steady. I like the weight of this pen and weight had been one of my concerns because my old pen always seemed a bit heavy. Thanks for the dedicated assistance in finding a pen and for providing a quality product.

This pen is so easy to fill. It writes like a dream, not catching or dragging on the paper. The pen also does NOT dry out, which is the main reason I purchased it. Now own 3!

TWSBI Diamond 580ALR
I finally bought one of these in Prussian Blue after reading many positive reviews. The Prussiab Blue colour looks good and the finish overall is excellent. I'm stilll deciding if I like the textured section. It does make for a secure grip but I'm used to shiny sections on Lamy pens. In terms of price this is an absolute bargain.
