LiB Stylo-plumes

I've got it!

Last Wednesday I received a FedEx parcel containing my shining new TWSBI 580 fountain pen with B nib. It's my third TWSBI, after a 540 with 1.1 stub and a Mini with M nib.

I really like it, it feels great in hand... bit it feels almost the same that the 540 too. As I love my 540, that's not a problem for me, but if you look for a different writing experience, the 580 won't do it, it's clearly a new, improved version of the 540, as the 540 was of the 530.

A superb pen for me, the,. The B nib is juicy, generous, wet, and it writes like a dream. The Noodler's Upper Ganges Blue is beautiful in the transparent barrel, and the B nib allows to admire its nice shading on the paper.

After having used it since Wednesday, the 580 has become one of my favourite pens. The B nib is a bit too wide for daily use, but it is so smooth that I use it nevertheless.

In brief, a great pen, TWSBI!

!Gracias! I got the same pen and I love it. Filled mine with a similar color (Shocking Blue from Akkermann in Holland) and am in love. A marvelous pen. Great minds think alike.*

*I have 2 540s one with a broad nib and one with a 1.5 stub, and a Mini with a B nib. I like but don't love the Mini but I am keeping it, it's a good pen. I only have one problem and that is the 580 doesn't start up right away on the downstroke. But I think that is more of a clean out problem. It just feels wonderful.
