The Diamond IROC 850 has come a long way from the test sample we saw a few weeks ago. The image on the left shows the results of the first test of line cutting and is much different than what I thought it was going to be. The other two images are test samples with the titanium PVD coating. The middle image is the most recent update released very early this morning. Its polished surface looks absolutely amazing and I’m now voting for this one to make it into production. Also, just a quick note, if the shape of the piston knob in the left image is any indication, it looks like the cap will post directly on it just like the 540. How do you feel about that?
It appears that TWSBI will switching the vac ink bottle design to a completely injection molded unit. There are several pieces to it, which we already knew, and the cap will attach to the Diamond ink bottle making it slightly more useful. Anyone excited for this?
