With over 50 years of experience in manufacture, Ta Shin founded TWSBI and this long-standing knowledge trickles down into every product TWSBI has to offer. Their range of high quality fountain pens are popular with fountain pen enthusiasts and for good reason too; they are some of the most affordable fountain pens at this level of craftsmanship and quality. TWSBI offers a wide range of filling systems including the Button system, Vacuum system and Piston filling system making them a popular choice for enthusiasts who enjoy using a range of ink colours and brands.
We love TWSBI's designs and you'll notice that the brand isn't afraid to go bright and sometimes transparent, showing the inner-workings of their pens which is always a nice touch.
So, the big question: what's in a name? TWSBI's name actually stands for the phrase "Hall of Three Cultures" or "San Wen Tong" in Chinese. The initials of the phrase "San Wen Tong" were reversed and became "TWS". As for the letters "Bi", they were added with the literal meaning of "writing instruments" and so when combined, the two parts spell TWSBI.
