TWSBI ECO Now Available


This is not a recommendation for TWSBI products, but if you were waiting to weigh in with an entry-level model, the new ECO might be for you. There has been discussion about it for months and it finally became available today. I will say that the price of $28.99 for a 1.1 stub is very reasonable.

The Conklin Duragraph Fountain Pen


My Conklin Duragraph has been the focus of several conversations the past few days so instead of writing a full review, here are a few comments and some images that say all there is to say about this well-priced, attractive and sweet-writing pen.

  • Attractive and well constructed especially at the price point.
  • Nicely balanced and long enough to not need posting.
  • Diameter at the section is very comfortable.
  • Cartridge or converter for easy maintenance.
  • Silver-colored steel stub nib is 1.1mm and smooth with good flow.
  • Good value for money at under $45 from several retailers.

Reviews From The Pen Cup and The Well-Appointed Desk sold me on the Duragraph and I’m so glad they did.

Caveat: I am still working to improve the photos taken with my phone. The colors are off in places and the clarity imperfect, but you can get the general idea regardless.


Orange As An Antidote
