Not too sure if I'm the first to get the TWSBI Pen from the Presale but I'm as excited as a school boy right now !!

I've decided to leave the reviews to the experts (adding the suspense factor for those out there still waiting for it) but I will include some pictures for everyone to enjoy until then !

 

Here goes :

Great! so this spanner will work for the Pelikan M1000 and M800 fillers too, so we have a nice readymade tool for the job now.

 

Best,

hari

Hi Leo,

Mine has still to be shipped :(

Yours is a medium nib, isn't it?

Could you post a small writing sample and let us know how it handles?

Thanks,

Bert

That's class the wrench, the silicon grease...a good looking pen. I'd not thought of buying a demonstrator before. Now, yes.

 

Now yes, with a semi-flex nib...that is the next step....even for extra.

 

It was great to ask the knowledgeable customers what do you want, how can we do this well.

 

I am not sure if they made a pen to price or a pen, and then made a price; there being a huge difference. I'd suspect the latter.

 

The understated frill on the nib matches the pen. IMO

 

I don't remember was this a screw out nib, so that one could put on thinner or wider nibs?

Or seeing it disassembles well, that one could buy thicker, thinner and more or semi-flexible nibs.

 

That ink bottle looked good too.

Edited by Bo Bo Olson

German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

RIP...200's once great nib, now a double ball.:crybaby::wallbash:

uhm, could someone give us a quick lesson on what the spanner and silicone grease are for? thanks! ;)

 

THat's very thoughtful of TWSBI actually, allows one to service the pen DIY when the piston becomes stiff down the line. :thumbup:

many thanks for that very instructive video!... what about the silicone grease, when and where should that be applied (not anytime soon, i imagine)?

Wow! Can't wait to get my two now! A pen with its own toolkit - that's pretty cool.

 

Apotheosis - I'm trying to think of something smart to say about the 7mm wench but the fabulous pics of the pen just left me drooling :puddle:

Like your video too. Very helpful.

Hi Bert,

As soon as I stop taking pictures, I'll ink it and post a writing sample here soon.

Dont worry - I'm sure yours is on its way - mine arrived first probably due to me beling closer to Taiwan.

Refer to his thread : It's used to lubricate the piston

I've just bookmarked the video as it is really helpful. It's from Mr Speedy (I think). I found it through a quick Google search.

I'm impressed. I hadn't been following the TWSBI threads much, and I didn't realize what an outstanding package they were putting together. When I get one of these, I hope I don't wear it out by compulsively disassembling and reassembling it. :wacko:

 

Some of the "prestige" pen makers should take a look at what TWSBI is doing. They could learn a few things.

Thanks for posting the pictures and video. Where can we buy them and how much do they cost, and what are the nib options? Also, any word yet on how it writes?

 

Edit: I forgot to ask, but what is the size of the largest pens Speedy will offer in relation to the Pelikan Souveran series?

Thanks for sharing great photos of your beautiful pen. I'm sure there will be late nights as you learn more about it.

Will look forward to your writing samples. Enjoy! :thumbup:
