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.

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.

Vac700R Iris
This is such a beautiful pen. The finishes on the metals composing the pen look particularly pretty with ink in the pen. I’m so happy with my purchase! I was looking for a pen I could travel with, so I already had my eye on a TWSBI Vac or Vac Mini. When this one came out, I jumped at preordering it. Pen Chalet was the first to offer a preorder out of my favorite pen shops, and I’m perfectly happy with their service and shipping. Thanks Pen Chalet!

ECO White Rose Gold
This one beautiful pen! My first Twsbi. I am kind of new to fountain pens so I made a dreadful mistake and put the wrong nib. I put Fine instead of the stub. So not having the experience I expected, but that's a user error. One quirky thing, the ink sits on the nib? is this normal looks odd. not liking the look of that. other than that great pen. The shipment was fast. Cannot wait to grow my collection of pens.

Great pens! And this one is beautiful as well. My second TWSBI and these are a favorite. Always ready to go, smooth nibs, pleasant in the hand. Based on my first ECO, they simply do not dry out if not used for a few days, unlike another famous brand that I won't name here. Great writing experience with these. You won't be disappointed.

I love these pens. The five I have (different finishes) are all Fine nibs. Well made, perform perfectly, well priced. You really can’t ask for more for a practical, affordable “workhorse” pen.

TWSBI pens are better than they have any right to be. For this price, they write like pens 10x as expensive. I'm a big fan.

Really nice ink. Flows great and color Midnight Blue is a good match for white, yellow or cream paper. 70ml bottle will last a good chunk of time depending on the use.

Super nice for being my first fountain pen. I was concerned at first because of not so good writing. Then I tried it on a good quality and smooth 100gm. Now I'm happy. Quality paper makes a super difference. Take that into consideration.

ECO-T Special Edition
Beautiful Absolute Contentment-
When my box arrived I waited until after work. The box was packed so carefully that the pen and ink bottles arrived securely. I cleaned my pen and inked it up- Wow -( I got the Stub- my first Stub)•Itbworked right away, and writes smoothly. I am having fun with it. •I enjoy seeing the ink and what is going on with the ink and piston. •It isnmore beautiful and finely made than I hoped for. •The nib exceeded my imagination of what a stub could do. •It is a very comfortable writer. I quickly filled up several pages of neat precise data I needed to tabulate-effortlessly. •I may consider bying a different color and stylr of nib- Thank you Pen Chalet for your quick service.??

Diamond 580
Very nice pen to write with. I think it looks more expensive in person than it does in pictures. I normally can get away with not cleaning a new pen, but this one definitely needed it to fix ink flow issues. Since then it's been fine. I don't write for extended periods, but it's been comfortable in my small hands. When capped the pen is very cap heavy, but uncapped it's well balanced. I originally bought one of the ALR models but exchanged it for this because I wanted something a little lighter and I really prefer the chrome finish.

Diamond 580ALR
An excellent writer. I bought a BROAD nib (Prussian blue) for two reasons: slow down the writing (hard to take quick notes with a broad, need space for writing letters properly) and "leveraging" the variation of the inks. The pen is fabulous: a great writer, easy filling system (no mess) and the grip is very comfortable as the lines on it are very small. The weight is just right for this type of pen and it posts. Hard to beat the price/quality ratio.

ECO-T Special Edition
I use the Fine or Medium nibs depending on ink. This pen in fine writes beautifully as all TWSBI pens do. Industrial design perfectly executed and finished - AND very reasonably priced! I like the fact that their acrylic bodies don’t scratch as easily as say - Lamy. Keep in a sleeve and they look good as new for years. And the disassembly for cleaning is great when using “difficult” inks. Win,Win,Win.

Everything you could want in a highly functional pen. The grey makes it aesthetically pleasing as well. Love the Medium nib. There is nothing to dislike in this pen.

Diamond 580 Smoke Rose Gold
The looks of the TWSBI 580 Rose Gold are stunning! The smoke cap and end paired with the rose gold work together give this pen a subdued look of elegance. I’ve received many compliments and “What’s that?” queries about the pen.
Differences about this pen that go beyond looks are the use of metal in the piston assembly, similar to a 580 AL or ALR, but a plastic, smoke-colored section. It’s a hybrid of the standard 580 and AL/ALR versions. I was concerned about the balance of the pen as the back metal piston assembly weight is not offset by a metal section as per a 580AL/ALR, but I haven’t really noticed the difference yet.
It's a great writer with a Medium nib, but I’d sure like to try a Broad with this pen.
I heartily endorse it!
