Twsbi 580Al Orange And Apache Sunset


Recommended Posts

I can't believe no one has posted this yet, but I couldn't find any, so here are a couple pictures of my newest pen, TWSBI 580al Orange with a medium nib


it writes just like my other 580s, although I don't believe I'd tried apache sunset in one before. lots of shading!


I love the feel of the aluminum section.

I have the regular Al. Fantastic pen, one of my favorites. I just can't believe the quality you get for the cost. One of the best deals in fountain pens today, no question!

Arrrrgh! Not a BLUE one!!!!! :D


I have the orange and love it. The nib on it feels more responsive than my other 580s, more like the old Bocks. But I am not in love with that pretty orange grip. Makes me feel like my hand is slipping down as I write. I had to scuff it up with sandpaper to give it some texture and grip. It's a great pen, nonetheless. I agree that TWSBI is the berries, and for the price, I am now the owner of a few too many. Love them.

I agree....the orange one is very nice looking. Makes one want to collect the series.


I know this is an old post/thread but I thought I'd update you guys show your wish was granted. You probably already know or may even have one but here's the TWSBI Diamond 580AL Blue....appropriately laid out on Clairefontaine's orange notebook. Loaded with Private Reserve's DC Super Violet ink.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
