Nice review. I've purchased a few pens based on your good reviews. Fortunately, I already have this pen!

Well actually I am in process of procuring one more of these...

Awesome review Vaibhav!  

 

I just got a Lamy Safari 1.1 and really enjoying it.  Your review sparks my curiosity.

 

I wonder from a budget (sub $40) 1.1 mm stub nib head to head comparison between the ECO and Safari which would come out ahead?  I think the ECO has the edge with it's piston filler from a value perspective, but from stub nib performance perspective which would reign as the top econo stub? 

 

I may be tempted to leave hints around the house for my wife as to what I want for Christmas this year :) A new white ECO 1.1!

A good review of a pen that has piqued my curiosity since it was released.  I may be in the minority in thinking that the design of this pen is more unified and pleasing than the clunky 580.

 

However, the real star of this review is your awesome handwriting!

Great review!

Mirrors my experience with this pen. I like it so much for daily note taking, I've now got 4 of them - all with slightly different shades of blue ink!

Thanks for the great review. I've had the same experience with my ECO stub. It writes like a much more expensive pen.

The Eco has become my "go to court" pen because if I lose it, I'm not sick to my stomach, it doesn't run out of ink, and it doesn't dry out easily.  I bought B nibs and had them stubbed, but I'm going to buy another one as a stub.  It's a great pen for the price. Thank you for the wonderful review.

Thank you for liking it... While you are buying one more and at the same time I am actually writing for more colors to come in
