♥ Twsbi Eco-T In Mint! ♥

Hi everyone!

Has anyone seen the news about the new model of TWSBI Eco-T in Mint slated for release next week on 16 Dec 2019?

 

So far, I've seen it here, here , and here.

 

(Edited to add: And here.)

 

I have about 7 TWSBI Ecos and a single TWSBI Diamond 580, but I haven't yet purchased an Eco-T. Is the performance the same as an Eco or 580? Or is it different enough to warrant getting one?

I confess, the lovely translucent mint color is making it hard to resist buying it. It looks like the palest of chrysocolla, the gem-grade variety ... which, had the pen parts been made of the actual gem material, would price this pen right out of a lot of people's budgets (but would have been hellaciously awesome!)

 

Anybody have an opinion about the Eco T they feel like sharing with a newbie?

The literal only difference between the Eco and Eco T is the triangular grip on the T. Every single other part of the pen is identical.

Selling a boatload of restored, fairly rare, vintage Japanese gold nib pens, click here to see (more added as I finish restoring them)

When you say it's got a triangular grip, it's like the Lamy Safari or AL-Star? That doesn't sound bad or weird at all! Thanks, Honeybadgers. ♥

It's not as defined as the Lamy's. It's a milder Triangular Grip.

 

It adds a little more securement to the girp if you hold the pen in a tripod position, and makes it quicker for you to position the pen in your fingers. TWSBI did a nice job with it.

Okay, I can pass on this. Not a color I like.... But thanks for posting the links.

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

I like the Mint Blue color.

 

I usually prefer neutral colors cuz I'm "boring" like that lol.

 

I remember having a lime green/yellow Eco, and I loved the color, but that certainly did stand out lol.

 

I do like the Clear Demonstrator Eco's, but I prefer the solid color Eco's over the transparent color Eco's, and I think TWSBI did a good job with this solid color.

 

The Mint Blue is "refreshing".

Not quite true: the cap end and the piston knobs are also different shapes. The Eco-T cap end and piston knob are roughly triangular/3-sided, as opposed to the multi-faceted shapes on the standard Eco.

      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
