My brother just bought me a TWSBI Eco as he uses one himself. So grateful for the gift, can't wait for it to come in!

Vac 700 with Omas turquoise. 

Have many nice pens in rotation, also demonstrators, all waiting to get back into the DC pouch but whenever I want to brighten my day the Vac somehow just stands out.


Current modern daily users: Aurora 88 modern; GvFC Classic, Montegrappa Reminiscence, Nettuno Superba, Omas AM87 orange, S.T.Dupont D-Line black lacquer, Stipula Etruria Tuscany Dreams, Tibaldi Iride + a few good Japanese pens as the PG and the 3776.

Current vintage daily users: Aurora 98p, Big Red Lucky Curve, MB622, P51, P75, Pelikan NN400.

ECO looks beautiful with that ink and you have captured it very nicely.

Along with a quartet of "Imperial" range Sheaffers I keep  three Minis and one Vac-Mini inked and jump among them based on whim. Some of the Minis have replacement nibs. All eight pens work fine for me. The Vac-mini had flow problems until I removed the shut off gasket and now it seems fine. I also keep a Pilot Stella 90S/Stargazer inked for a total of nine. I carry one of the Sheaffers or TWSBIs daily and make sure to scribble a few lines with all of the pens every second or third day.

My Vac Mini arrived today.  I filled it with Noodler's Heart of Darkness ink and am running it through its paces.

Diamond 580AL Lava, medium nib, with Diamine Autumn Oak. Really stands out on the pages here at work without being too bright. It's easier on the eyes than say, Apache Sunset. Only had a sample of it so I'm going to buy a small 30ml bottle from Goulet. Beautiful ink

TWSBI Micarta, medium, just bought today! One of the last two in the shop. Came with a free notebook. Absolutely loving it. Looks and feels amazing. Solidly built and writes beautifully. Very happy as they are discontinued for some reason, I'm not sure why as I think they are the best of the lot.
