A 580 AL in lava, with a nib customized to a broad Butter Line Stub by Pendleton Brown. It's pretty rad. :)

Diamond 580AL with a fine nib filled with Iroshizuku Kon-peki 

 

Black Eco 1.1mm stub filled with Diamine Kelly Green, until my bottle of Noodler's Habanero comes in the mail tomorrow, anyway. It's going to be my Halloween pen for the next couple of months.  :lticaptd:

I just cleaned out most of my other pens this weekend. Since getting my TWSBIs last month I don't like writing with my other pens nearly as much.

I'm using my burgundy Classic with medium nib. I'd been using it somewhat rarely since the cap cracked shortly after I cracked it a couple of years ago. However, Mr. Wang sent me a new cap for the cost of shipping from Taiwan, and since it arrived today, it's like having a new pen. I like and trust my Classic again!

The Classic is dedicated to Noodler's Antietam, but I may start putting other inks in it if I find myself using it more.

White Eco with M nib that I bought on a whim at the Wonderpens sale - inked with Noodler's Bad Black Moc, it really is quite good. I am enjoying writing with this pen more than I have ever with my 540 or 580!

580 with Noodler's Black.  It's running low on ink.  When it's dry, I'm going to try Old Manhattan Blackest Black in it.

Today I used my Diamond 580AL filled with Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun. I adore writing with this pen. And the more I use this ink, the more I love it. And I like how that bluish gray looks in my silver and clear pen. I'm using a sample right now, but I foresee buying a bottle in the future...

Visiting Taiwan this week, so I thought what better time than now to get my first TWSBI.  I thought I'd be able to find a TWSBI anywhere but that is not the case.  Visited few bookstores and department stores and while fountain pens are quite popular here, did not see any TWSBIs.  Did a quick google search and found Ty Lee penshop in Taipei that carry TWSBI.  A wonderful penshop by the way.  A must visit if you are ever in Taipei.  Two floors of fountain pens, inks, and much more!

 

Anyway I got myself the all clear Eco 1.1 stub.  For $35, it's brilliant.  Well made, and writes nice.
