Has anyone here tried it yet? It looks beautiful! I also see that the price of the Vac 700 has gone down to $65.

I want this pen to be all black with just a tiny ink window. The black/demo doesn't look right to me - but I do like the black and gold.

I really dislike gold. Feels wrong / blingy for my taste. Glad they make it for those that do like gold trim.

Change is not mandatory, Survival is not required.

OK, I will be a p*sspot: I would want a white one with gold trim. The black and gold looks too industrial.

Is a white one in the works? That would look good.

Alas, Goulet Pen Co. sold out before I could secure one; I hope to fare better when additional stock arrives.

Both the white and black were proposed by TWSBI on their facebook page; they actually asked for comments from everyone. The black version won out, but this is what the white version looked like:

The white looks better.

I have the rose gold - have not inked it yet - I'm savoring the newness of it, apparently.

 

I will say, I am not a huge fan of rose gold in general; I'd never buy a piece of rose gold jewelry.

 

However, this pen is gorgeous. The gold isn't too pink like some rose gold I've seen, but it's not as brassy looking as the pictures above. There's a richness and depth to the color.

 

I posted a couple of pictures over on my Instagram.

Thank you! I admit to being a rose gold wearer.

I agree that the white looked better but I'd happily write with either.

I am awaiting one now. It really does look good with a load of dark blue ink it it, doesn't it?

 

If I were to want the 580 in another color, I think red would be the one I'd request. I like the old standards.

 

Frankly, the white leaves me cold.

The only other colored 580s are going to be the Classics, it seems (although that can always change, lol). But those are opaque, not demonstrators.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
