Thoughts On Twsbi's Eco-T Grip?

Hey everyone! My question is, if you own a TWSBI-Eco T, what's your impression of the grip section? Also, do you think this would work for a lefty, even though I dislike Lamy's grip?

 

Thank you!

I have learned that I dislike all triangular/faceted grip pens. I've had a few to play with, and I've never liked them, even though I thought I should. But that's me. The ECO and ECO-T aren't crazy expensive, but if you already have found other faceted grip pens not to your liking, I doubt the ECO-T will change that.

I find the "triangularity" of the Eco-T very subtle, with very rounded ridges-- but I suppose it is still there. I enjoy it myself: it doesn't have the triangle finger "slots" of a Lamy Safari grip, and I enjoy that pen quite a lot.

With kind regards,

I'm also a big fan of the faceted grip on the Lamy Safari, and I also like the grip on the Eco-T. I prefer the Eco-T over the standard Eco since I never have to worry whether the nib is properly aligned to the page. At the same time, the facets are much more subtle than the Lamy. Those who dislike the Lamy's grip may find the Eco-T more to their liking.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
