The idea behind the TWSBI Diamond 530, 540, and 580 was to go back to basics and capture the simplicity and elegance of traditional writing instruments. In recent years, the development and modernization of writing instruments has resulted in traditional writing instruments, such as fountain pens, falling into obscurity. It was our goal to bring the past back to life by creating a traditional fountain pen that even modern day society can appreciate.

TWSBI Diamond 580, a classic fountain pen with a piston ink-filling system. By fusing the traditional mechanisms of the fountain pen with a modern industrial design, we have created an eye-catching fountain pen that is simultaneously appreciative of the past and relevant in the present. The Diamond 580 comes with a benchmark ink-filling mechanism and has all detachable parts. We felt that it was important to allow the user to disassemble and reassemble the pen and completely experience the traditional aspects of owning and using a fountain pen.

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

Bullet Journaling (BUJO)

One of the cool features of the WonderPlanner and WonderNotes are the numbered pages and that both books include an index and key.For those of you that love the idea of bullet journaling but do not have the time to draw out your reoccurring planning layouts like the monthly and weekly layouts, you are still able to index your notes, lists, goals with the convenience of having your layouts ready made. Schedule in your appointments on your weekly layouts and reference the page number in the undated dailies for your meeting notes. Index all your lists, brain dumps, meeting notes, illustrations etc. If you are like me, I like to know exactly where I can cross off the last book I read on my running book list. 

Tomoe River Paper

Tomoe River Paper is ultra thin at 52gsm, ultra smooth and incredibly fountain pen and watercolor friendly. We chose this paper for our planner and notebook not only to provide a fine writing experience but also for functionality. We wanted our books to be lightweight, flexible and portable. For first time users of Tomoe River Paper, you will notice the paper is slightly transparent and as you write, plan, watercolor through your planner or notebook you will see your book expand with your words and illustrations. You will also get to experience, what many find endearing, that magic “crinkle”.
