Eco-T's Triangular Grip


Recommended Posts

I'm a lefty with an oddly angled grip, where the nib ends up aimed almost at my right shoulder when I write. With the placement and angle I hold my pens Lamy triangular grips just don't work for me. However the Pilot Kakuno does, because the nib unit can be rotated (unlike the Lamy).


So: is the nib unit in the Eco-T set in place in relation to the section, or like the Kakuno can it be rotated (slightly) to accommodate my weirdo writing style?

I think the Eco's are like other TWSBI's where the inside of the section is shaped for the nib and feed to only go in one place. So I don't think you can rotate the nib. The normal Eco has a more rounded section for your fingers and the three lobes are really just at the end. I would suggest going with that instead of the T version.

Thanks. I haven't owned a TWSBI before, in part because I like to swap inks a lot, but after getting a Kakuno I realized I liked the triangular grip (as long as it was adjustable). So I don't think I'll get any Ecos for now, though I did leave my email with GouletPens for a heads-up when the $19 TWSBI Go! comes in. That's the price-point where I don't mind experimenting, and $19 for a piston-filler would be interesting to see....

I'm pretty sure you can orient the nib and feed however you like on the Eco-T - that's certainly the case for the Eco. Maybe confirm with an online retailer before you buy?

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
