TWSBI Eco-T Mint Blue Special Edition Fountain Pen
TWSBI fountain pens are loved for their high quality and affordability, offering advanced filling mechanisms normally reserved for much more expensive fountain pens. The TWSBI ECO (short for "economical") provides the same high-quality, high-capacity piston filler as the TWSBI Diamond 580 at an even lower price. It features a sleek, transparent barrel and a hexagonal screw-on cap that can be posted securely on the back of the pen. The piston filling mechanism is easily operated by twisting the knob at the end of the barrel counter-clockwise to extend the piston, submerging the nib in ink, then screwing the knob tight to retract the piston, drawing ink into the pen straight from the bottle—no need for cartridges or a converter!
In keeping with their philosophy of promoting the traditional experience of using a fountain pen, TWSBI has designed this pen to be completely self-serviceable. It comes with a wrench and a vial of silicone grease you can use for at-home maintenance.
This pen only uses bottled ink, which is not included with this pen.
ECO-T has a slightly more pronounced grip section; to help with learning correct writing posture for kids, new enthusiast, and anyone who likes a little bit more structure to the grip area. Cap and end cap also has a rotary triangular shape design.

A quick no brainer guide in choosing nib sizes in an overly complicated fountain pen world:
If you write small, go with an EF
For the normal writer, F is the most popular
If you tend to lean on a bigger font, M will be perfect
B is for statements!! Sign a check in B, write a header in B, do some coloring/shading in B
Stub nibs are italic in writing style (have a special card or invitation to write?)
