  1. My name is Jeremiah, and I am a designer of consumer goods. I have manufactured one of many of the pens I have designed (I have to do them one at a time due to costs associated with the process). Id like to know what the general initial impression is of the design, materials, color, etc.? Thank you for any positive and/or negative feedback!

    Ripple Micarta

    Two of my favorite pens are the Waterman 94 Ripple and TWSBI Micarta. Unfortunately, both are out of production. So, for fun, I decided to make some micarta pens that "cross" these pen's properties. Shown are my first attempts at Blue Green, Orange, Rose and Olive Micarta TWSBI sized pens. Shown with them are the inspiration pens.

    Micarta V2 An Experiment In Time

    The TWSBI Micarta fountain pen is made from a unique material (Micarta), which makes it a useful and versatile pen beyond the casual spectrum of the coffeehouse. Reviews about the TWSBI Micarta Version 1 and Micarta Version 2 have flourished on the FPN and other sites. I will not attempt another detailed review, but will provide a few points which determined my purchase and/also how the pen has performed. “Micarta was originally used in electrical and decorative applications. Micarta was developed by George Westinghouse at least as early as 1910 using phenolic resins invented by Leo Baekeland

    Twsbi Micarta

    Hello I'm new to this group. I love my TWSBI Micarta but I've had some problems with it. I discovered today that the collar? you know, the piece that keeps the nib and feed in place is cracked. Does anybody know where I can get a replacement collar? I might try to super glue it and see if that works. Thank you in advance. Aida

    Converter Inside Twsbi Micarta V1?

    Does anyone know the size of the converter inside a TWSBI Micarta v1? My faithful pen's converter has finally started to fail (read: leaks), and I want to find a replacement. If anyone knows where I can actually find said replacement, I would be super grateful.
  6. I decided to use multilayered color cloth/resin to try to get a striated celluloid effect. The cloth is cotton canvas of six colors. The effect is most prominent when there is a lot of curvature in the elements. The nib set is Jowo #8 18K cartridge/converter filled. I have not decided on a clip or roll stop but whichever, I will try not to interrupt the patterns. Now that I know more about how it works, I intend to try some more subtle classic colors. Thanks, Joe B.
  7. Before I start, I need to declare that I am a TWSBI dealer in Singapore. I want to check what is the demand for the TWSBI Micarta Version 2 without Clip 803 like else where? (Outside of Singapore) I have the final last 10 pieces now on-route from TWSBI in Taipei to Singapore. Should I be holding at least one as a keepsake or releasing all so that people can get their hands on them. Are there stocks with other dealers? (For those interested in the 805 with Clip models, the TWSBI factory still has stock) 27 new SKUs already this year and only 8 SKUs being discontinued. And no, it doesn't inc
  8. First of some context to this review. I am fairly new to the whole fountain pen thing, about 6 months in and a ton of reading on this site. Apart from the Micarta i have the following pens: Lamy safari, Lamy next M88, Jinhao x750, Jinhao x189, Parker 45, Twsbi 580, FPR Dilli. This is my first review. I don’t like the standard black snoozefest pens. So, to the review! The looks: I knew as soon as i saw this pen that i had to have it. It is a stunning pen. Really, whoever designed this pen new what they were doing. From the color, to the small black TWSBI-logo, model number and TS
  9. I was wondering if anyone has tried one of the new Goulet #6 nibs in a TWSBI Micarta. I am thinking of ordering a new 1.1 stub for my quite dry M nib on my Micarta. Anyone have any issues with this combination. Thanks all.

    Cool Stains On Twsbi Micarta

    I hear that the Micarta stains and some times it looks kind of cool, giving the pen some character. Anyone else like the way the stain came out to be? Share pictures of your stained Micarta! The Micarta I had a bluish stain on the grip section that I liked. Pictures doesn't do justice to how the stain looked, I really liked it https://www.flickr.com/photos/119239737@N03/sets/72157645375573297/ What if you were stain the micarta with other colors, I wonder how it would look...

    Greetings From Texas

    Hey! After a few months lolly-gagging on the forums, I finally took the time (and initiative) to introduce myself. I'm currently a postgraduate and a reborn FP-user (from my early teens, where I actually acquired a bit of $$ buying and selling pens on the Bay) who realized that if I'm going to spend the next 10 years studying and scribbling down notes, I might as well enjoy every minute of it! I just wanted to say hello and show you a few pics of one of my favorite pens so far - a TWSBI Micarta One of things I love most about this pen, is that its unique material allows for some 'cust
