I have numerous TWSBI and they are all great! I assumed this one would be as well. I filled in with Otto Hutt ink and it wrote well for about two paragraphs and then the nib went dry. I cleaned the pen with water and pen cleaner and filled it with Waterman ink. It wrote four pages and the nib went dry. In each case there was plenty of ink in the pen. I bought a medium nib as I usually do with TWSBI. I don't know if there is a problem with the nib or what. All I know is it is a terrible disappointment to me.
I got this specifically for the broad nib and huge reservoir of ink it holds. It really lays down the sheen inks I planed to use it with.
One of the best looking pens in my modest collection and the filling mechanism is great fun. Love watching the ink slosh and writing with the pretty nib just brightens my day. Truphae shipped my pen quickly and it arrived in excellent condition. Thank you!
The TWSBI Mac700R Iris Fountain Pen is amazing and well worth the money! I really like everything about it, this is now my go-to everyday fountain pen and I'm going to purchase another one today.
This is my second TWSBI, and this is an impressive fountain pen at any price. Best demonstrator with unique filling system. Large reservoir. Aesthetically gorgeous with perfect fit and finish. Extra fine nib is a nice flowing true EF size. Highly recommend for any collection. Better than Pelican demonstrators more than double in price. Happy writing!
