Don't have one. Yet. Been contempating the purchase of a 580 1.1 for around six months. I have a WS698 that works well. Do I really need a 580? Hmmm.

None! I am tired of the cracks I experience with the 580 and doubt I will buy this brand again.

First post in the TWSBI forum.

 

I've only got a GO and an ECO, but I'm using both of them at the moment.

 

The GO is new enough that it's still half full of the Kaweco Königsblau the shop owner had it inked with. Not my favourite colour but I'm enjoying the writing experience much more than I expected from such a chunky implement. I like the way it's light and cheerful as well as a really nice writer.

 

The ECO's inked with some PenBBS #339 Stendhal, a beautiful dark red that recently arrived on the slow boat from China.

I'm writing my new novella with a TWSBI Eco in Transparent Blue. :) Ink is Iroshizuku Ama-iro, which I find a great match for the blue on the Eco. 

 

It glides like a dream and I'm in love. :D
