The TWSBI (commonly pronounced "twiz-bee") Eco is the answer to the common question, "what is a good starter fountain pen?" The piston-filling Eco provides all the enjoyment of owning a modern fountain pen at a fraction of the cost.
The transparent resin barrel gives the writer a clear view of the ink sloshing around as they write. A dependable, iridium-tipped steel nib writes smoothly in a variety of point sizes to suit your writing style. The nib keeps fresh with ink thanks to the inner cap seal.
After writing hundreds, if not thousands, of pages, you can maintain your TWSBI Eco using the included wrench and silicone grease.

And once again, this is a great writing pen. The nib just glides across the paper. No special hold technique, just write like I normally would with the medium or fine nibbed pens.
Details: This TWSBI-ECO was inked with Diamine Peach Blaze (très magnifique) and was "test driven" on a Clairefontaine notebook. What a combination… transparent blue pen and blazingly beautiful peach ink. Life is good. view less
