TWSBI ECO Smoke Rose Gold
I purchased this with a stub 1.1 nib. It makes a big difference in my writing. Learning script writing with this pen with a stub nib is a perfect combination.

TWSBI ECO
I got a fine in the Blossom Red color. This thing is an absolute workhorse. It's my designated grading pen, and it works great for that purpose: it can hold a large amount of ink (my go-to is Waterman Audacious Red), it feels great in the hand, and the nib is wonderfully smooth and never gives me trouble. (It certainly doesn't hurt that this pen elicits more awe than fear from my students!)

TWSBI Diamond 580 Smoke Rose Gold
This was the second TWSBI I bought in a month. I liked the first one so much, I couldn't resist getting another similar style, the Diamond pattern. This one is a full size pen, very pretty with the rose gold accents and another smooth writer. I filled this one with Waterman Noir Intense and it or another looker! I never thought I would like demonstrator pens but the two I bought are both exquisite examples of beautiful design! I am thoroughly pleased!

TWSBI Diamond Mini White RoseGold V2
I love this pen! I have heard so much about TWSBIs over the years and have never bought one. Then I saw this pen on the Facebook Fountain Pen Network page snd I thought I’d give it a try. It arrived snd it’s even prettier in person! It is a small pen, but perfectly balanced and a pleasure to write with. I filled it with Iroshizuku Yama Budo, a nice pinkish rose colored ink, and it looks really pretty. It is a very smooth writer and a looker. And it led me to another TWSBI purchase!

TWSBI Go
this is my new favorite pen for school work. i got a fine, and it just works when i need it to work. it's incredibly satisfying to refill, just a quick ka-chunk, like a tiny pump-action shotgun.
i have it filled with lamy blue, and it's so lovely.
i'm not sure why but it just feels like i'm capable of writing faster with this pen. also, when i'm sitting there fiddling with the pen, i find myself unscrewing the body from the grip section, it's very satisfyingly tactile. i have one of the nice rose gold twsbi eco's but i find myself gravitating toward this pen more because it's so fun and pleasant to use. it's also significantly bigger in my hand so it feels more ergonomic, but it's significantly lighter than an eco, which is probably why it feels like i can write so fast.
for $20, this pen is a steal.
please get one; you will not regret it!

TWSBI ECO Cement Grey
Insane amount of ink for the price. I really like the special edition's color. It can have a little feedback, which works for me but might not be for everyone. It can have hard starts sometimes, but mostly it's quite wet with a medium nib that's slightly wider than a Lamy medium nib.

TWSBI Diamond 580ALR
Really excellent pen. I'm really not sure whether I like these or the Vac 700R's better. I prefer the Vac 700Rs filling system and those are more substantial pens, look nicer when seen in person and fit my hand better. However Jowo #6 nibs on the Vacs are absolute nails whereas the #5s on these are just every so slightly softer which makes all the difference. Both the #5 and #6 nibs are nails but it's just a difference in degree on how much of a nail they are.

I got an extra fine. There is some feedback but it's really smooth given how fine it is. Slightly dry until I flushed it. Perfect a flush. Some Jowo XF nibs on TWSBI pens need a bit of micro mesh treatment. The one I got on the 580ALR did not unlike my Ecos. I don't know if I got lucky or if there is better QC on 580 nibs.

TWSBI ECO
The TWSBI ECO is such a great pen. I loved this so much I bought two more. My only complaint is I can't switch out the feed as easily as other TWSBI models, but at this price point it's almost worth getting a new pen rather than a new nib. It's quite stylish, and comfortable to hold. It can contain A LOT of ink.

Very nice fountain pen. I’ve have several cheaper pens but never used them much because of poor writing quality. I love this Eco. It writes beautifully. I carry it all the time. Thanks

This is a solid performer from TWSBI. I love the bottle - it accommodates the same lids as their premium bottles. The ink itself smells funny, but works great.

TWSBI ECO-T Special Edition
The TWSBI ECO has become my go-to everyday fountain pen. It has a great weight to it, but not too heavy for writing for long periods. The cap posts very nicely and it has a really nice ink capacity, so I rarely need to refill. The grip area is also very comfy to hold. I'm not super experienced with fountain pens, and found this to be a very good pen to start with.

TWSBI Diamond 580ALR
The TWSBI fountain pen is one of two that are currently being used. The other is a Conklin.
This pen is very smooth writing, and fits my hand very nicely. The one thing that that some people are going to object to is the grip. Instead of being smooth resin, it is machined aluminum with a series of ridges that run around the grip. This is not a problem for me, but could be for others.

The piston fill is easy to use, and loads a lot of ink into the clear barrel. It is interesting to watch the ink slosh around inside of the pen when writing. If the piston should need service a special wrench is provided to disassemble the pen. Also included in the package is the needed silicone grease to apply to the piston.

TWSBI Diamond 580ALR
I bought this TWSBI 580ALR in Prussian Blue in the Final Drop section of this web page, and I loved it. It has a stub 1.1 mm nib. The tip does not feel rough or coarse on the paper. It is a stiff steel nib, so it does not feel soft, but it is nice to work with, and it does not have much feedback. I recommend it if you want an entry level stub nib. And the price was like USD 20.00 down its retail price, so it was a good purchase.

TWSBI ECO-T Special Edition
I purchased this pen as a gift but after seeing it in action, I have to get one for myself! It's buttery smooth and writes like a pen that's double the price. I now understand the hype that comes with this pen. Between the way it writes & the great ink capacity, the TWSBI Eco is a 'must have'!
