So today I got to my dusty now pen holder and took out 3 Twsbi ECOs which were sitting there unused for around 2 years half-inked. They did not dry! To my surprise they even wrote from first nib touch to the paper, amazing!

The inks were quite decent quality as well, Iroshizuku Kon Peki, Sailor Yama-Dori and Souten, so that may have been a factor too, colours however did come out much darker than normally attributing for some H2O loss.

What is the humidity and temperature of the room where you keep your pen holder? The fact that the pens were not used in aprox 2 years reflects the tide tolerance of their construction.  :)

This is one of my favourite properties of the Eco. They NEVER dry out. Utterly marvellous. And so easy to clean out!

I can actually answer that, they're kept in my studio that doubles as a office and maintains almost constant 50% humidity and temperature would fluctuate between 10 and 20 degrees depending on the season and time of the day :D

Yep, they truly are, it did take about 20 mins to deal with all three and assembly will take probably slightly more as you have to align piston thread :)
Still, almost the best bang for a buck factor in low-middle shelf area :)
