The Crazy TWSBI Micarta Experiment


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since I converted my Edison Pearlette into an eyedropper, I’ve been interested in converting my TWSBI Micarta too. It has a huge barrel and looks like it can handle some experimentation. Of course I have my concerns, like whether the barrel will absorb the ink or if the material is too porous to be a good eyedropper. Anyway, if you’re curious about how the TWSBI Micarta eyedropper conversion will go, read the updates here.

  1. I’ve seen it done before. It does not end well if you don’t seal the interior of the barrel and section with something. The Ink gets wicked to the outside and the Micarta gets stained. I had a nib unit crack on mine and it ended up staining the section. It was a slow leak but I started noticing my section getting darker.
