Having heard so many things about TWSBI pens cracking, I thought a poll would be of some use in clearing up the matter with some (hopefully) accurate and representative results. Perhaps we will even be able to see if TWSBI's efforts to improve the issue have in fact been effective, and to see if their current line up still suffers from this problem. Please vote, and do so honestly. If done correctly, I have a feeling this poll could become a valuable resource.
I gave my mum what turns out to be an m600 just like mine, a very long time ago - more than a decade. She never used it, kept it in its case, I asked her to bring it on her next visit so I could clean it. It took a lot of water to finally get rid of all the Parker Penman green, but once it was clean and I filled it with Diamine Ancient Copper, it started right away, the piston is smooth and nib super smooth. Pelikan for super reliable pens! My own m600 has also been bullet proof.
