Piston-filler has great ink capacity. Alignment refers to the vertical positioning of each tine relative to the other.
All the parts of the pen are visible through the pen, since it is a demonstrator! An eyedropper filling system involves basically no filling system at all. I have done some writing and ink-patching here for a test — and I have also used the pen on a daily basis for about a week or so now.
Some nibs, such as obliques, are made to accommodate twisting down the axis of the pen, but normal nibs are balls, made to write with the underside of the tip in full contact with the paper.
My has Bock nibs, the other two have Jowo. And it was far worse on Rhodia paper. This results in strain after a short period of continuous writing.
Now, some nibs work well upside down some are even made that waybut your typical nib has been polished and carefully designed to perform best with the upper face of the nib the part with all the branding, patterns, and breather hole facing up for the world to see.
The wrench and silicone grease inside. You can often just choose a font on your computer and attempt to emulate it, going back to primary school days and writing each letter until you have it down pat.
I do like heavier pens, normally. I generally go for the EF nib, which is what you see in the writing samples here. It is the best Chinese pen I have tested so far. Even if your pen writes fine it could still be misaligned.
If you like demonstrator pens. It could be a bit thicker for my taste. For the first few minutes of writing, there is great ink flow as the feed easily keeps up with this broad nib's ink demands. I wasted no time inking up the pen after briefly debating then deciding not to flush the pen first, which I didn't end up doingselecting Pilot Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku ink.
I don't know whether there might be a gift box or retailer's package in China. IN HAND Since the nib is so smooth and ink flow is so consistent, very little pressure is required to write with this pen.
This is also a good way to make sure your pen is completely clean when changing ink colours.
Lovely, juicy, springy stub nib. They are often desired by people who use a fountain pen to take notes, rather than write expressive characters, because of the consistent flow at any pressure. Whether they actually are or not, remains to be seen over time.
What you wanna do next, is screw the piston all the way down until it looks something like this here. Stay tuned for a post all about nib cuts coming soon! Feeds can come in many materials and designs, even from the same manufacturer, and most are designed to only fit one type of nib shape.
This is a ridiculous low price for a piston-filler fountain pen and a beautiful demonstrator. Nib shot-time, I would say. Nib runs a little dry after a few minutes of constant writing.The Extra-fine nib is perfect for small writing and detailing hand-lettering.
Nicely balanced pen. 3 people found this helpful but not scratchy across any paper I've used it on so far. About the only observation I would make about the TWSBI EF is; this is a large pen when posted (almost top heavy).
