My first TWSBI
This is the 2nd time I have ordered online at Anderson Pens. The shipping was very fast and the pens are wrapped in a box and bubble wrap to make sure it is not damaged during shipping. The hand written note (Thank you Amanda) was a really nice touch too.
Now let us go to the pen, I have been watching videos and reading reviews of this pen. I was intrigued by the mechanism and the clear body. I finally pulled the trigger and bought 2 -- 1 clear in medium and 1 transparent blue in fine nib. I gave the fine nib to my husband.
We were able to figure out the assembly by going thru the visual guide. I love how the pen writes in my notebook (I have LT1917, Hobonichi cousin, and Galen Leather Tomoe Everyday notebook). It glides and there's no skipping. I guess maybe it depends on the nib size and how "hard" you write on your notebook, I noticed there's a little ghosting in my LT1917. I don't really mind since I am the only one reading my notes. With the current price, I am thinking of buying 2 more of the ECO. I do have Lamy, Kaweco & Pilot Metropolitan but I think this is my new go to/favorite pen. The design is also nice so my next one would probably be purple or the rose gold.
