SOLD!!!!!

Hello all,
I received my new VAC Mini today from TWSBI and it just ain't for me. Love the concept, but it's just too small unposted and, honestly, I just can't do a pen that threads to post. So, it's up for grabs. These are $65 new plus shipping. But since this was inked once, I'll let it go for $55 shipped. So you save about $10 or so over buying from them directly.

PM or email with questions, etc.

Thanks,
Matthew

I've been curious about the vac mini -- does it take #6 nibs like the non mini vac?

No. This one takes the same nib as the TWSBI Mini/580. I think a No. 6 nib would have looked really nice.

Darnit. I was really hoping I could put a Franklin Christoph music nib on it.

Good luck selling!

You could get a No. 5 Franklin Christoph Broad Stub or Masuyama Italic. :D

Thanks!!!

The mini and 580 have different nibs.

Don't be depressed! Just because I didn't like like mine, it doesn't mean you won't like yours! It might be the best pen in your stable when you get it. Never know!!!! :D
