The Vac 700 has been updated to become the Vac 700R. TWSBI have made small changes to the internal valving of the pen by changing from two small valves to a single, larger valve and they have modified the taper of the grip section slightly. The result is more consistent ink flow when the valve is opened.
The Vac 700R has a vacuum filling mechanism, simply pull to extend the filling rod, submerge the nib in ink and push the rod back in. This action creates a vacuum inside the pen which sucks the ink up, filling the pen.
The filling mechanism includes an ink shut-off valve that can be closed when the pen is carried in a pocket or on aircraft to prevent any leakage.
Due to the redesign, the original Vac 700 nib units will not fit the new Vac 700R.
A quick guide to choosing a nib size:
EF - For small handwriting
F - This is the most popular, for normal writers
M - If you tend towards larger writing
B - For making a statement! signing a document, writing headings, etc. Also great to show off the shading characteristics of an ink.
Stub - Italic writing style, for getting creative with a special card or invitation!
This pen comes packaged with silicone grease and a tool for lubrication and long-term care of your writing instrument.
