TWSBI ECO Lime just arrived, Halloween is around the corner, so I thought this is the perfect time for a quick review.
TWSBI ECO is a fountain pen with piston filling mechanism which means that it fills from the bottle and it holds a ton (around 1.8-2ml) of ink. No need for cartridges or converters anymore…
ECO pen would classify as a demonstrator – this basically means that transparent pen body is one big ink window and you can see the ink sloshing around.
I have inked mine with Diamine Shimmering Lilac Satin – ink which will be available from early November 🙂 Purple and lime green go so well together. That said – turquoise, green, pink or orange would look great too 🙂 I do love matching inks and pens <3
OKay, let’s not get side-tracked 🙂 What else is great about this pen? It comes in a cool box – supplied with silicon grease and wrench for all pen tinkerers 🙂 It is really easy to find (colour does scream, lol). Design is simple – disassembling the pen, swapping nibs, pen maintenance and cleaning is a piece of cake (pull the feed& nib out). It is a reliable writer. Perfect everyday carry and workhorse pen. Great value for money and it has Halloween all over 🙂
