The Writing Desk was not only the first to bring TWSBI pens to the UK but were their first stockist worldwide. As a consequence we have a wealth of knowledge of the products and can help with any questions you may have. We also keep in stock a comprehensive range of replacement nib units and spare parts.  TWSBI is a Taiwanese pen manufacturer with strong emphasis on design, quality and serviceability. Along with the best practices of product design and development they place greatest importance on "Voice of the Customer" information.

The 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.

The Diamond 580, Vac 700R, Classic and Eco series pens are designed to be user-serviceable and all parts can be disassembled by following the included instructions and on-line video tutorials (opens in new window). Users are encouraged to service their own pens as this provides a valuable insight into the workings of a modern fountain pen.
