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.
Another wonderful starter pen! I bought a Pilot Metropolitan, but my partner loved it so much I decided to give it to her and get a twsbi eco instead. The piston filler is very eas... view morey to use and the extra fine nib writes very well. For the price, it is an extremely good deal if you're just jumping in to fountain pens. However be aware that you can't use cartridges with this one, so you'll have to get a bottle of ink separately. view less
