Only problem with this pen is, it can't be posted , else it's metal parts are robust.

The 580 AL posts perfectly fine. Is the 580 model different?

Wheeeeen? I got it on my radar since may. But they keep moving the release date further away. I want it badly. Had hoped it would be released before Christmas.

I got both and they both post the same way. I don’t post my pens but if I would... I would call this unpostable because of the size it creates. It is longish to begin with and it doesn’t post deeply. So it becomes blackheavy and awkward. And quite ridiculous in my eyes.

It can post, but not very well. It makes the pen awkwardly long and looks bad posted since there's also a gap. It also sits on the piston knob, so there's always a possibility of twisting the knob on accident when removing cap.

Very pretty, but if they did a 700R rose gold... my money would basically teleport into TWSBI's coffers.

The price become higher is because to achieve this rose gold color we need to change all metal part from brass or steel to stainless steel. The stainless steel is much harder to work with... and the PVD color coating is very expensive.


Thank you for taking the time to explain this. It does help to understand how the process changes. I have 5 TWSBI fountain pens. Your stub nib is awesome.

I caught TWSBI's story post on FB at 0200 this morning (Don't ask ...) and I DMd them asking when the Diamond 580 in Rose Gold was coming, please?

Their answer: Next month.

 

Given that they seemed to have resolved the rose gold plating issues with the release of the TWSBI Eco RG, it stands to reason that the Diamond 580 would come soon after.

Keeping my fingers crossed!

Yeah, they've been saying "next month" for almost a year now.
