Today, it's my new TWSBI Eco filled with MB Ultra Black. I'm really starting loving demonstrators!

Get a soft towel, and grab the nib from its sides. Pull out. It's that simple. Make sure you grab the nib from its sides, as the fins on the feed are very fragile.


Thank you for your help. The pen still has ink in it, would you wait till it is empty?

Removing nib to swap it out, or some other reason?

The Ecos write really well. But for a pen that's supposed to be easy to disassemble, they are harder than anything I've ever worked on. Otherwise I'd have one in every color and nib combo.

Can I swap the nib while the pen still has ink in it? It is less than half full.

It's likely to be a bit messy...don't do it over your white rug. ;)

I wouldn't pull out an inked pen nib. There's ink in the feed and it can go all over the place. At least do it over a sink.

I did once pull and swap a Lamy Safari nib while the pen was inked. Have plenty of tissues/towels on hand.

TWSBI of the day: my clear Eco with the 1.1 nib and a surprisingly vibrant mix of this green and that.

I’m going to do my best to wait either for the pen to run out of ink, or empty the ink, clean, then try swapping nibs. I have two to try. When I get to that point, I’ll dip in ink to see how the Knox bold oblique works. Also have a 1.1 nib for it.
