A Few Year Twsbi Eco Retrospective Review

Recommended Posts

So today I got to my dusty now pen holder and took out 3 Twsbi ECOs which were sitting there unused for around 2 years half-inked. They did not dry! To my surprise they even wrote from first nib touch to the paper, amazing!

The inks were quite decent quality as well, Iroshizuku Kon Peki, Sailor Yama-Dori and Souten, so that may have been a factor too, colours however did come out much darker than normally attributing for some H2O loss.

What is the humidity and temperature of the room where you keep your pen holder? The fact that the pens were not used in aprox 2 years reflects the tide tolerance of their construction. :)

This is one of my favourite properties of the Eco. They NEVER dry out. Utterly marvellous. And so easy to clean out!

I can actually answer that, they're kept in my studio that doubles as a office and maintains almost constant 50% humidity and temperature would fluctuate between 10 and 20 degrees depending on the season and time of the day :D

Yep, they truly are, it did take about 20 mins to deal with all three and assembly will take probably slightly more as you have to align piston thread :)

Still, almost the best bang for a buck factor in low-middle shelf area :)

      @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.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
