The Vac 700 features a modern, eye-catching design, with a transparent body that shows off the pen's inner workings. Its high-capacity vacuum filling mechanism is easily operated by twisting the knob at the end of the barrel counter-clockwise, pulling back the plunger, then submerging the nib in ink and pushing down the plunger to create a vacuum that sucks the ink up into the barrel—no need for cartridges or a converter! Simply pull up, push down and your ink is filled, ready to go.
TWSBI fountain pens are loved for their high quality and affordability, offering advanced filling mechanisms normally reserved for much more expensive fountain pens. Also designed with a ink shut off valve for easy carry and no mess on airplanes.
In keeping with their philosophy of promoting the traditional experience of using a fountain pen, TWSBI has designed this pen to be completely self-serviceable. It comes with a wrench, two O-rings, and a vial of silicone grease you can use for at-home maintenance.Comes in EF, F, M, B, Stub1.1, Stub1.5 nib sizes (please choose one)
Please note: Ink is NOT included
A quick no brainer guide in choosing nib sizes in an overly complicated fountain pen world:
If you write small, go with an EF
For the normal writer, F is the most popular
If you tend to lean on a bigger font, M will be perfect
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B
Stub nibs are italic in writing style (have a special card or invitation to write?)
