Recommended Posts

I just got the notice from Goulet that the TWSBI Eco Summer 2017 special edition turquoise pen is in stock. I ordered both an EF and a 1.1mm. :)

 

Beautiful color! :wub:

 

Now, I have to be patient until they arrive...

Wow. The stubs are already out of stock....that didn't take long. Ordered a medium which I'll change out later.

Thanks for the heads up.

The turquoise on the eco looks far too bright, almost childish. The turquoise on the 580 Al looks much better and stylish.

Childish isn't always bad, but I prefer to think of it as a bright and happy color that lifts the spirits.

I agree with you about the 580 Turquoise. I like the looks of that pen.

Not all these pens are used by Adult Males. This is a great color of my young Neice. She's in the 8th grade and in the midst of an everything must be turquoise phase..lol..

That's interesting -- I feel almost the exact opposite. The 580 "turquoise" isn't turquoise at all. It's a very light baby blue color. While this ECO color is bright, that's what a "turquoise" stone actually looks like.

 

I'm a nearly 40 year old male, and I think the color is just fine. I guess different strokes for different folks.

I think I understand what you mean, but I think the colour may be a little deceptive because of the shine of the aluminium, which looks like it tones it down very slightly. I think it has a much nicer appearance, more professional maybe. I tend to prefer more muted and less bright in-your-face colours.

 

You got me curious anyway, so I took the image from the Goulet website of the TWSBI turquoise 580 AL and loaded it into an image manipulation app to see what it's colour is.

 

And it's almost pure turquoise as you can see, very slightly closer towards green than blue. The actual hue is probably almost the same on both pens.

I am waiting for the deep dark blue version :P.

Does anyone know of a shop that still has any of these in stock? I'd love to get one with a 1.1mm stub nib. Also interested in the pink or purple version, but those are older editions now =/

“I admit it, I'm surprised that fountain pens are a hobby. ... it's a bit like stumbling into a fork convention - when you've used a fork all your life.”

I'm looking to buy a Turquoise Eco in good condition if anyone is willing to sell one.  Not concerned about the type of nib.  I will replace it if needed from a GO.  thank you!

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
