View Full Version : TWSBI Micarta V2 ~ Video review

June 25th, 2013, 01:17 AM
Well it arrived and the review is up ... Thanks to those who helped me decide it was indeed the clipless version I should get. It was the right decision for me.

LOVE this pen.

This weeks review is of the TWSBI Micarta version 2

Making it of Micarta was a great idea as it has a nice warm feel and a very rugged appeal about it. This updated version now sports a JoWo nib instead of the Bock nib it had before. It also has a cap liner to keep the nib from drying out. This was a problem for some who had the original. It also ships inside a TWSBI journal notebook. Pretty neat marketing idea too being that they just released their new notebooks about a month ago. It writes with a nice even and smoth line. No dry nib here, which was another complaint about the original. While mine came with the logo on the cap slightly askew it is a great pen that is really different but pleasant and fun to write with.
On a final note, being it takes a #6 nib I removed it and placed a Delta Fusion stub nib into it for a test drive... easy and fun. I show that in the last 3 minutes of the video.
