Hugely Popular Fountain Pens From Taiwan
A relatively new supplier, the TWSBI we know today were formed in 2009 and have been crafting beautifully made fountain pens since. Iconic for their clear, faceted barrels, they give a brilliantly distinctive look when filled with your favourite ink.
TWSBI produce fountain pens for enthusiasts who love to tinker and appreciate the ability to service their own pen. Each comes with their own servicing tools and built with the idea they can be taken apart for maintenance. It's hard to find any piston-filler fountain pen at such excellent value for money.
Inspired by writing
TWSBI's name is built up from the Chinese phrase "San Wen Tong", which is in reference to The Three Treasures Hall - a private study of the Qianlong Emperor. It was so named because it was used to house his favorite three pieces of calligraphy. Reversing these initials make up the first half with the last letters "Bi" added with its literal meaning of "writing instruments".
