I just got sample of gold nib (18K gold) from Germany,
but they are larger nib, not for Diamond 530 but for Diamond V7.
just have a look for your reference first.

Speedy, do you know the size of the nib unit you bought from schmidt for the Diamond 530 piston filler? Such as FH 442, FH 341, FH 231, FH 204, FH 31, etc?

Speedy: We are all so excited to actually receive your products (pens and the bottles; also the subsequent pens to the FPN initial offering)! It would be so great if you could plan to attend the D.C. Pen Show August 12-15 to show off your work; so many would love to meet you. Those of us going from FPN who have ordered your first pens for our group would probably have fun wearing a TWSBI official logo red pin or badge along with our FPN logos and show badges; could there be such a sticker or pin developed. We could have a phrase such as, "I have a TWSBI! Ask me about it!" on our name badge; would be great advertising for you and help us find others with the TWSBI's to interact with. Hopefully, we'll be enjoying these by then. Best to you and hope you can come to D.C. :notworthy1: :thumbup:

Wow, this is all looking really great. I like that you even got the logo printed on the shipping box.

I'd like to reiterate how awesome I think it is that you're making it so user-serviceable and including the wrench and the lubricant for the piston.

Just three more days! I only found about these a week ago and everything I'm seeing is making me very eager. If it's within my means I'm preordering it.

Sorry if I missed it somewhere, but what is the capacity of the reservoir? Also, how is 'TWSBI' intended to be pronounced - I want to spread the word, but don't know how!

I believe the capacity is stated somewhere near the beginning of this thread, I believe it was around 2ml (a bit less probably).

And as I understand, TWSBI rhymes with frisbee.

i just saw the 18K gold nib a while back. Though it couldn't fit the piston filler, will there be a version of the piston filler ( oh and the vac filler too) fitted with the gold nib in the near future?
