The TWSBI Mini comes with a benchmark piston ink-filling mechanism and has all detachable parts. Like many other TWSBI fountain pens, it features a demonstrator clear acrylic body so you can see your ink level, and a clear cap.
About one inch shorter than the Diamond 580, the Mini is conveniently pocket sized, with a cap that can be screwed onto the back end of the barrel when the pen is being used. Its faceted barrel catches light and makes your ink shine, and it also helps keep the pen from rolling away. The piston filling mechanism is easily operated by twisting the knob at the end of the barrel counter-clockwise to extend the piston, submerging the nib in ink, then screwing the knob tight to retract the piston, drawing ink into the pen straight from the bottle—no need for cartridges or a converter! Be careful, operating the piston while ink is in the pen will cause ink to leak out of the pen.
The pen comes in an attractive clear plastic case with a clean, modern design. For protection, the plastic case is packaged in a cardboard box.
Note: This pen only uses bottled ink, which is not included with this pen.
A quick no brainer guide in choosing nib sizes in an overly complicated fountain pen world:
If you write small, go with an EF
For the normal writer, F is the most popular
If you tend to lean on a bigger font, M will be perfect
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B
Stub nibs are italic in writing style (have a special card or invitation to write?)
TWSBI's belief is that it is important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen and completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen. These pens also come packaged with a wrench and silicone grease. Neither of these accessories are intended to be used immediately, as they are for long-term care and maintenance. Additionally, please use extra care if you choose to disassemble the nib and feed, as the feed is very fragile.

We simply love stationery and understand how personalised stationery can be a source of great joy for the user. It always feels great to fill up the pages of a diary or planner that has been customised or personalised. It can be customized with your initials, name or your personal motto. It is even better when you are writing with a personalised pen!
We are able to provide pen graving with Chinese or Kanji characters. Our craftsman use the most advanced engraving machines, which have the ability to engrave pens in complex multilingual characters.
Pen Engraving Process
The engraving process cut into the surface of the pen, the result varies based on the pen material. The natural colour will show for a metal pen. For example, the silver colour shows for a stainless steel pen. For a pen that has lacquered finish, the engraving process will cut the lacquer surface and reveal the metal beneath.
Resin and plastic pens can also be engraved but there's no colour variation. Thus they will be filled with acrylic paint (which match to the trim of the pen) to make the engraving stand out.
At Cityluxe, we help Singapore businesses every year with commemorative business gifts, corporate presentations, long service or retirement awards, and premium marketing with logo engraving on all of our pen styles.
In addition to the writing instruments, the packaging can also be customized. From the simple cardboard box to the high-quality tin can to the luxurious leather case, there is suitable packaging for every writing instrument.
