The TWSBI Swipe is the perfect starter pen: it is stylish, affordable and easy to fill.
The pen can be used with either a cartridge or a spring-filled converter (both included), but it will also accept a regular standard converter.
TWSBI fountain pens can be entirely disassembled for the purposes of cleaning and servicing. Instructions and necessary tools are supplied with each TWSBI fountain pen. Please note that the disassembly feature is only there for experienced users and is not necessary for normal use. Disassembly is at your own risk!
With a history of more than 40 years of manufacturing, including producing high-end pens for other brands, Ta Shin Precision decided to start selling under their own brand, TWSBI. The name TWSBI is made up from TWS and BI. ‘TWS’ is the reversed initials of the phrase ‘San Wen Tong’, translated Hall of Three Cultures, and ‘BI’ literally means writing instrument.
The SWIPE is the newest model from TWSBI. TWSBI SWIPE fountain pen has a silver stainless steel nib and a push/snap cap. The pen barrel has a translucent blue body and a clear grip section so you can see the ink flowing. The nibs are TWSBI steel #4 nibs (same as the GO and ECO).
