The TWSBI Vac700R fountain pen features a modern, eye-catching design with a clear demonstrator body that shows off the pen's inner workings. It comes with a vacuum filler mechanism, which can be easily operated by twisting the knob at the end of the barrel counter-clockwise, pulling back the plunger, then submerging the nib in ink and pushing down the plunger to create a vacuum that sucks the ink up into the barrel. Thus there is no need for a converter or ink cartridge!
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.
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 is 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.
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?)
