Hi folks! My first TWSBI came in the mail today--a white ECO with a broad nib. Being the kind of person who obsessively reads reviews before buying ANYTHING, imagine my surprise when the cap screwed off instead of snapping off like I was expecting! (The wording makes it sound like I was expecting it to break but you know what I mean)


Can anyone offer any insights as to when they might have made the switch, just to sate my curiosity?

TWSBI have always made the ECO with a screw-on cap!

No my friend, you're pen is exactly as it should be. I've been using the eco for what feels like a long time now. Great pen!
