TWSBI is experimenting with some fun new colors for the Diamond 580 fountain pen. Instead of creating a colored demonstrator, like with the 540s, TWSBI is using the color style of the Mini Classic to create opaque caps and matching piston knobs.
I’m still waiting for confirmation on whether or not the section is similarly colored. I pray that it is. Philip from TWSBI has just confirmed that the section will be the same color as the cap and piston knob. However, any colored 580s that will be released will come out after the black and rose gold version. Also, not every color shown above will make it into production.
What do you think of the colors? The orange and blue jumped out at me immediately with the red an intriguing option, as well. Of course, I have to reserve final judgement until I see them in person. At which point I’d likely buy all five. Oy.
No word on if these will actually go into production or when they might be available.
