TWSBI 580 with B nib

LiB Stylo-plumes

I've got it!

Last Wednesday I received a FedEx parcel containing my shining new TWSBI 580 fountain pen with B nib. It's my third TWSBI, after a 540 with 1.1 stub and a Mini with M nib.

I really like it, it feels great in hand... bit it feels almost the same that the 540 too. As I love my 540, that's not a problem for me, but if you look for a different writing experience, the 580 won't do it, it's clearly a new, improved version of the 540, as the 540 was of the 530.

A superb pen for me, the,. The B nib is juicy, generous, wet, and it writes like a dream. The Noodler's Upper Ganges Blue is beautiful in the transparent barrel, and the B nib allows to admire its nice shading on the paper.

After having used it since Wednesday, the 580 has become one of my favourite pens. The B nib is a bit too wide for daily use, but it is so smooth that I use it nevertheless.

In brief, a great pen, TWSBI!

CalligraphInk 1.2 stub, a cheap pen that performs well

Last week, I went to the local art supplies store, looking for some craft stuff. While there, I looked around and I saw something interesting on a shelf : a box marked CaligraphInk Fountain Pens.

CalligraphInk? I didn't know the brand. I took one pen, it had a 1.2 stub nib, it didn't look too [i]cheapy[/i] and it only cost 8€. Of course, I bought one! :)

At home, I loaded it with Noodler's Polar Black and I passed to the test. I expected it to perform poorly, unremarkably at best... I was wrong!

It's a nice pen, it glides on paper leaving a beautiful wet trait of ink, effortlessly.

The pen is cheap, solidly built and it writes great, so now I'm keeping it in my pocket as my EDC stub pen (I don't want to put more expensive pens in my pocket).
