TWSBI ECO Fountain Pen - White, Extra Fine Nib


 
Alternative Views:


The TWSBI ECO piston ink-filling system uses only bottled ink and the clear body allows the user to view the level of ink remaining in the pen at all times. One difference between the ECO fountain pen and the other TWSBI pens is that the ECO does not have a removable nib unit, and the barrel and nib unit are all one piece. There will not be separate nib units for this pen.

TWSBI ECO Fountain Pen - White, Extra Fine Nib

The TWSBI ECO, shown here in White with an Extra Fine nib, is a classically styled fountain pen with a piston ink-filling system, smooth-writing steel nib and a screw-on cap, at a lower price point than any of the other TWSBI fountain pens thus far. The traditional mechanism of the fountain pen, combined with a modern industrial design, embodies both the past and the present. This pen runs about the same in length as the Diamond 580 and is just a tiny bit thinner.

Craaaazy capacity! January 25, 2016
Reviewer: Cody Spradling from San Marcos, TX  
I'm using this for my college lecture notes. After a whole week of classes, there's barely a bubble inside the reservoir! I'd usually be topping off my Lamy All-State weekly (I used the Lamy converter) but this TWSBI is going to be a marathoner when it comes to the ink capacity. The piston mechanism is a bit tricky to take apart and put back together (I. E. When lubricating the orings on first fill) but after about five minutes of messing with it, I was able to get it all back together.
The EF nib writes incredibly fine (as expected) but is just a bit scratchy on rhodia and clairefontaine top bound spirals. Increasing pressure on the tip, you can get a moderate amount of line width variation, but this being a note taking workhorse, I never bother with that.
Using iroshizuku syo-ro ink, i have noticed if I leave the cap off without writing for more than about 5 minutes, it does take a scribble or a shake to get the ink flowing again, but hey, it's a fountain pen. What do you expect?
