    I just ordered a TWSBI ECO in white with 1,1 mm italic nib, and some Diamine Antique Copper ink. Also I just tried J. Herbin 1670 Emeraud the Chivor for the first time. In a Pilot Parallel Pen 2,4 mm it works fine on Clairefontaine Trophée 120 ivoire paper, but on cheap white paper it feathers.

    My prescription sunglasses are Ray-Ban Justin model, with 85% dark brown lenses (maximum darkness allowed for driving). The original leather pouch that came with them is damaged around the push button, so in the long run I’m looking for a replacement. I could either get the same model (perhaps in another colour) or something else. Is there anything you could recommend?

    Maybe you could ask Phreak where he got his pouch for his glasses.

    The TWSBI ECO came today, alongside in the package some Diamine Ancient Copper. The seller put a promo ballpoint pen in the package, too.
    For trying it out I put a little of the new ink in the new pen and thought about what to write. After some scribbling I decided for the beginning of Romeo and Juliet in an obsolete 19th century translation. ;)
    In the background on the left you might see some other scribbles with other pens and other ink.

    The next package is already on its way (I hope; at least I ordered and paid for it). A sunglasses pouch Phreak told me about (see above). Gusti Leder Colins.

    It came with a little leather loop with push button, intended for tidying in-ear headphone cables:

    And combined with some other EDC items:

    Compared to the original pouch it replaces:

    Very nice. I'll have to look into some of their leather goods.

    A sneak peek into the RIMOWA aluminium suitcase I keep most of my knives in. The others are mainly spread around the car. One day in the future (this sounds like a fairy tale on purpose) I’ll take pictures of each of them …

    While in a restaurant today in the evening I didn’t take everything out of the pockets, but a small dump (;)) while waiting doesn’t hurt.
