The TWSBI Eco Fountain Pen in Rose Gold (Limited Edition)

I happened across this YouTube video late last year and became infatuated with the TWSBI Eco Fountain Pen Rose Gold Golden Horse Awards Limited Edition pen. It was amazingly hard to find, but my persistence paid off when I was able to order from the German website, FountainFeeder.
Granted, it cost me $120 (99 Euros), but I just love it! It’s my first TWSBI so I can’t compare it to others.
The pen comes boxed as above and was launched as a limited edition on September 16, 2020. It was made specifically for the Taipei Golden Horse Awards Film Festival (Taiwan). The fountain pen comes with a bottle of TWSBI Midnight Blue ink, a small metal tool, and a miniature bottle of silicone grease as shown in the image above. The metal wrench-like tool is about 2″ long and kind of looks like a miniature ruler or box cutter, but has openings at both ends like a specialized wrench
What won me over in purchasing this fine writing instrument was watching Raya Journals YouTube video and seeing three things:
- How easy it was to fill with the piston filler system
- The beautiful way it wrote
- The gorgeous rose gold coloring combined with the see-through design
Not being a big fan of blue ink, I filled my new pen with Platinum Carbon ink that I purchased at JetPens. I had become enamored with the deep rich ink color when I saw this Instagram post last January. (Note: @Poulsbo_letters is no longer found on Instagram so I couldn’t link to them and share the Instagram love).
Isn’t that pen and writing gorgeous?! I researched the Platinum Century 3776 pen at the time (January 2020), but opted not to purchase that. I have four fountain pens that I rarely use and I couldn’t justify buying this one, even though I absolutely love the writing in this image. My concession to myself was to purchase the $25 bottle of Carbon Black Ink. Confessions of a pen addict?
