call me crazy but looking at the bottle i think there is a thickness diference in the wall of the jar. the left side is thiker and thus creates a balance for the leaning pen.


also the inner core seems to end above a little hollow in the bottom, I think the ink will be just a drop at the tip left in the jar...

The green one is GORGEOUS!!!


I hate how TWSBI teases us all the time. I bet this won't hit the market for at least a year and a half.. :(

Why tilt the inner cone feed in the round one? Won't that mean that more ink will be left in the bottle? 

That is meant to make the last of it easier to get out. I have some round bottles, and prefer the bottom one. Easier to get the last of the ink out, although the tilt helps.

I prefer the faceted ink well but I'd buy both. The bottom inkwell is shaped alittle different than the existing 50. But I can't see how it's any more practical. Maybe it's just a design option. I would like to see an improvement on the 20. I like the 20, I'd just like to see it be even better
