580 stubs 1.1 & 1.5 mm.
beautiful pens and nibs
packed two MB 146s out of rotation and filled up these two.
I like to write with my pens posted. MBs do not post well but can be posted not so with these pens. that is the only thing I feel lacking in these pens. otherwise good build quality heft and weight size and girth.

Since you have a nice collection of TWSBIs, could you tell us which one came with the best nib. I only have one ECO M. It seems a little bit on the dry side for me. However, I love the pen from a comfort point of view.

Did you see this video from TWSBI about adjusting ink flow?

I just tried squeezing the nib as shown in the video. It might have made a difference. I will see how it does as write off and on during the day tomorrow. With the ECO pen nib (smaller than the one shown in the video), you cannot squeeze the nib sides very much before you start hitting the feeder.

Clear 700, refitted with a Goulet 1.1 stub. Took it from meh to astoundingly good- the feed is nicely wet for the ink, and it writes smooth as silk. I don't really trust this pen- broke a feed tube once, and the history of cracking- but for now it's excellent.

Borrowed by sons Lime Eco, the barrel has been stained with Diamine Blue, running some different inks through the pen with solvent to try and clear the staining.


How many people does it take to comment on a question on FPN? One to give advice and make suggestions. Another one to repeat everything that the first poster has said. Fourteen to share their own experiences of their pens and comment on how the original advice was flawed.
Seven who just want to increase their post count. One to say that they have no regrets about doing anything and people should follow their example. Another to say that if there is anything wrong with the pen it is just down to using Diamine Shimmer ink. Six to argue over whether its a worth doing anything with it and the OP should just throw it away and buy their Parker 51. Another six to condemn all of the above as being  stupid and anyway they would rather be on FP Geeks. One to say that the pen is cheaper where they live. Five people to post pics of their own pens. One to say that if the OP had Faith then the pen would work - and gets banned very quickly.

Finally, one to close down the thread because it has lost its way.

A green Pilot Metropolitan CM with Mont Blanc Irish Green. Driving me nuts because it's not great on the Clairefontaine paper in the book I use as a journal, while it works perfectly on the more absorbant scribble pad paper.
