5 new colors possibly on the way for the TWSBI 580 fountain pen

5 new colors possibly on the way for the TWSBI 580 fountain pen | Writing instruments | Scoop.it
TWSBI is experimenting with some fun new colors for the Diamond 580 fountain pen. Instead of creating a colored demonstrator, like with the 540s, TWSBI is using the color style of the Mini Classic to create opaque caps and matching piston knobs.

I was looking forward to seeing the 580 colour range, but not these colours. The blue and red might pass muster, but the others don't.
