Nice review. I've purchased a few pens based on your good reviews. Fortunately, I already have this pen!

Well actually I am in process of procuring one more of these...

Awesome review Vaibhav!

 

I just got a Lamy Safari 1.1 and really enjoying it. Your review sparks my curiosity.

 

I wonder from a budget (sub $40) 1.1 mm stub nib head to head comparison between the ECO and Safari which would come out ahead? I think the ECO has the edge with it's piston filler from a value perspective, but from stub nib performance perspective which would reign as the top econo stub?

 

I may be tempted to leave hints around the house for my wife as to what I want for Christmas this year :) A new white ECO 1.1!

A good review of a pen that has piqued my curiosity since it was released. I may be in the minority in thinking that the design of this pen is more unified and pleasing than the clunky 580.

 

However, the real star of this review is your awesome handwriting!

Great review!

Mirrors my experience with this pen. I like it so much for daily note taking, I've now got 4 of them - all with slightly different shades of blue ink!

Thanks for the great review. I've had the same experience with my ECO stub. It writes like a much more expensive pen.

The Eco has become my "go to court" pen because if I lose it, I'm not sick to my stomach, it doesn't run out of ink, and it doesn't dry out easily. I bought B nibs and had them stubbed, but I'm going to buy another one as a stub. It's a great pen for the price. Thank you for the wonderful review.

Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Thank you for liking it... While you are buying one more and at the same time I am actually writing for more colors to come in

Great review! I was thinking about buying one of these for awhile but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Seems worth it to me!

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.
    • Arkanabar
      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
