Description

Details

TWSBI make fountain pens for enthusiasts, no cartridges are used and tools are supplied for servicing your own pen. Not the cheapest but beautifully made and distinctive to look at.

The Eco is a piston-filled fountain pen so no cartridges are needed. Ink is drawn straight in to the clear barrel so you can see exactly how much ink you have. The cap and end are hexagonal so the pen won't roll when the cap is on or posted. The pen comes in a gift box with a special spanner and silicon grease so that you can disassemble the pen and maintain it your self. A leaflet is provided should you wish to have a go but it should not be necessary for normal use.

Please note that we do not recommend the use of KWZ ink in these pens as it can react with the silicon grease used.

Key features:

  • No cartridge needed, just use ink
  • Size 138mm closed, 168mm with cap posted
  • Comes in three finishes
  • TWSBI logo on cap end
  • Five nib sizes available

What we like about this product:

Great looking pen, easy to use.
Written by Liz ( 05/07/2016)
.
A lovely pen that writes beautifully and fills really easily. I love that you can see the amount of ink in the reservoir at a glance, and also the colour - useful for those who like to have multiple pens and colours on the go.

Two slight warnings:
1. Make sure you get the whole nib of the pen up to the collar in the ink before filling, otherwise it won't fill up properly.
2. The cap unscrews. Make sure you twist the cap rather than the twisting refilling mechanism at the other end of the pen when opening the pen, otherwise you risk blobs of ink being pushed through the nib!

But that's user error, and it's a lovely pen to use so far.

Product Questions

Total 5 question(s)

Could you please tell me the line thickness for extra fine and fine nibs, please? Do they write as smoothly as the broader nibs? Thank you.

Question submitted by: Xanthe Wells on: 2016-07-31 11:48:14

Bureau replies: Broad nibs tend to lay down more ink and have broader soft spot therefore they write differently than finer nibs. TWSBI ECOs are very nice writers and write a little bit finer than Lamy. Unfortunately nib size in fountain pens is not measured like mechanical pencil, so there isn't an exact number. TWSBI offers a quick guide to nib sizes: 


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
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B
Stub nibs are italic in writing style (have a special card or invitation to write?)

What's the nearest nib size equivalent to a Parker IM Premium medium nib?

Question submitted by: Terry on: 2016-07-23 13:53:32

Bureau replies: unfortunately we do not stock Parker, so judging purely by fountainpennetwork and nib nook the nearest match will be Broad and Medium

Is the 1.1mm nib a medium nib?

Question submitted by: Helen Murphy on: 2016-11-02 20:30:54

Bureau replies: 1.1mm nib is a stub nib which is wider than medium.

Does this pen work with non-soluble ink, such as Indian ink?

Question submitted by: Warren Gilchrist on: 2017-01-04 12:06:40

We would only recommend using standard inks in these pens. We are also recommending that only KWZ ink with a batch date of mid-September 16 onwards is suitable. TWSBI pens are quite sensitive and the ink is going straight in to the barrel so best to be cautious.

Answer submitted by: Jo on: 2017-01-04 13:43:11

You say in your blog review not to use KWZ ink and then to use standard ink. What do you mean by standard ink? Can you give me an example? What is it in the KWZ ink that reacts with the silicon? Thanks

Question submitted by: Julia on: 2017-02-19 19:33:13

Bureau replies: KWZ have 2 lines of ink - Standard and Iron Gall. Unfortunately we have no answer to what makes some ink react with some Eco pens...
