Do you ever use a TWSBI fountain pen and wish it was smaller? They make the Diamond model in a miniature size for this very reason. It fits perfectly in a shirt pocket, pants pocket, or purse, etc. The Diamond Mini comes in Clear, and in the Vac version. Now they’re introducing the new TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Grape Fountain Pen. It’s everything you love about the Diamond AL, but now in a much more compact design. Even more fun is that it’s in purple.
First of all, the TWSBI Diamond Mini AL Grape Fountain Pen has great value with its piston filling system and affordable price. Like many other TWSBI fountain pens, it features a crystal clear acrylic barrel so you can see your ink level. Even the cap is clear. The pen cap has an inner cap to ensure a perfect seal when stored away. It is completed with chrome plated trim and a steel nib.
Secondly, the AL has a purple aluminum grip section. Even the piston mechanism is made with purple aluminum. Notably, this pen is about one inch shorter than the Diamond 580 fountain pen.
Importantly, what color ink would you fill it with? I think Monteverde’s Sweet Life Birthday Cake bottled ink would be a great match. As for the nib sizes, you have choices. Choose from: extra fine, fine, medium, broad, and 1.1 Stub.
Finally, TWSBI’s belief is that it is important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen and completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen. These pens also come packaged with a wrench and silicone grease. Neither of these accessories are intended to be used immediately, as they are for long-term care and maintenance. Additionally, please use extra care if you choose to disassemble the nib and feed, as the feed is very fragile.
