More info

Special version of the TWSBI Diamond 580 that features rose gold anodised aluminium piston parts and translucent grey cap and grip section. The TWSBI Diamond 580 Smoke & Rose Gold features the same piston mechanism as the Diamond 580 AL and a huge 1.9cc ink capacity - one of the largest of any pen in this price range.

The Diamond 580 is virtually unique amongst fountain pens in that it can be completely disassembled by the user for cleaning and servicing and experienced users are encouraged to do so. Full servicing instructions are included with the pen as well as a small wrench to remove the piston mechanism and a bottle of silicone lubricant for the piston mechanism

Piston-filling mechanism (uses bottled ink only).

Disappointing

One of the reasons I went for this pen was bec. of the way you fill the pen with ink in a way where you don't get ink on your fingers - which you don't, but my fingers are covered in ink which seems to come out between where the nip end screws onto the chamber, even when it is tightened fully it seems to come out and get ink all over your fingers. It is very disappointing and frustrating from a pen that cost 78.80. It is not really acceptable for it to leak at this price point. This issue outweighs the smoothness or how nice the rose gold looks. I'm writing with it just feeling disappointed. The quality does 'look' good but it leaks so it's a 1 from me.
