Hey everyone! My question is, if you own a TWSBI-Eco T, what's your impression of the grip section? Also, do you think this would work for a lefty, even though I dislike Lamy's grip?


Thank you!

I have learned that I dislike all triangular/faceted grip pens.  I've had a few to play with, and I've never liked them, even though I thought I should.  But that's me.  The ECO and ECO-T aren't crazy expensive, but if you already have found other faceted grip pens not to your liking, I doubt the ECO-T will change that.

I find the "triangularity" of the Eco-T very subtle, with very rounded ridges-- but I suppose it is still there. I enjoy it myself: it doesn't have the triangle finger "slots" of a Lamy Safari grip, and I enjoy that pen quite a lot.

With kind regards,

I'm also a big fan of the faceted grip on the Lamy Safari, and I also like the grip on the Eco-T.  I prefer the Eco-T over the standard Eco since I never have to worry whether the nib is properly aligned to the page.  At the same time, the facets are much more subtle than the Lamy.  Those who dislike the Lamy's grip may find the Eco-T more to their liking.

I would have liked the Eco T if they made it a 2 sided facet grip like the Safari, instead of the 3 sided facet grip it is.
