TWSBI is a newer name in fountain pens and brings a fresh approach to their design, with modern touches and higher-end features (such as piston filling mechanisms) to their pens, all at affordable prices.
Lemur Ink currently carries the TWSBI Diamond 580 and the TWSBI ECO fountain pens, both clear demonstrator pens with piston-filling mechanisms for refilling ink.
The Diamond 50 inkwell refillable ink bottle is also available from TWSBI.
From the manufacturer:
After 40 plus years as an OEM manufacturer for different global brands, Ta Shin Precision decided to start selling under their own brand, and thus TWSBI was born.
TaShin Precision has over 40 years of experience in manufacturing with plastics and metals. Early products ranged from toy lego parts to high end writing instruments. This knowledge trickles down into every product TWSBI has to offer.
TWSBI's name stands for the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or "San Wen Tong" in Chinese. The character "Wen" translates into language and culture. The phrase "San Wen Tong" also brings to mind the Hall of the Three Rare Treasures created by Emperor Qianlong as a memorial to three great masterpieces of Chinese calligraphy. The initials of the phrase "San Wen Tong" was reversed and thus turned into "TWS". The last letters "Bi" was added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments". Thus combining the two segments, creating TWSBI.
