Terrific review and great photos. Thank you.


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Thanks for a great review! It made me consider the Vac700, and I am particularly glad to see your glowing assessment of writing performance. It seems like a fantastic pen.

Update: One week later, the replacement mechanism arrived, and there is no leakage of ink from the opening of the filler collar now. Awesome customer service, TWSBI team! The VAC gets the new mechanism. (The defective one beside the pen)

For another example of excellent TWSBI service, see my recent post on a problem I was having with the vacuum seal of my Vac700.

(Spoiler: TWSBI responded in near-real-time to my e-mailed query, and the problem was easily-solved - I was used to standard piston pens, so had used much less lubricant than needed.)

 

Great review, BTW.

Incredible review. Thank you. I have had good success filling my Vac 700 with a Visconti Traveling Inkpot which you could use with the Pilot 823.

Is it significantly springier than the nib on the 580?

Not significantly, my guess is that, it's springier because of the bigger nib size narrow shape.

However a Titanium #6 nib is way more springier :D, if that's what you are looking for.
