The packaging and design are both so simplistic and beautiful at the same time. I love the purple accents which contrast nicely with the red TWSBI logo at the end of the pen cap. The pen feels very sturdy and it is the right length for my, larger than average, hands. I opted to get the fine nib and I love how it writes. Before we explore that further, let's just have a little look at the nib - isn't it beautiful?!
The first ink I decided to fill it with is Diamine Denim (more on that in a few weeks' time) and there is a slight purpley tinge to it that goes well with the pen design. The ink capacity is also ridiculous - it only needs to be filled once or twice a week (maximum three) whereas I'm changing Lamy cartridges once a day sometimes! Just amazing. My next goal? To fill it with J Herbin's Poussiere de Lune at some point to see how that looks.
Finally, how it writes. I use it unposted because the cap is actually quite heavy and adds a bit too much weight to the pen when posted. The writing sample below is from a lecture I was sat in and my favourite thing about this pen is how it didn't dry out even when inactive for a few minutes.
Overall, this pen is amazing and I'm still trying to pluck up the courage to take it on placement with me. Mainly because I currently tote my Lamy and the amount of times I've had people ask to borrow a pen makes me shudder at the thought of someone ruining this lovely TWSBI offering.
