The Gama Hawk is an Indian, hand turned, all ebonite eyedropper. It uses a two tone number 6 "Iridium Point Germany" nib that draws a very smooth western fine line. The Nib's performance is fantastic. The Gama Hawk is smoother than my TWSBI ef, seems to never skip, but it can dry after a lengthy pause of many minutes of non use - a couple taps and it starts back up. A pause of a couple minutes and it will start right away. Overall the nib performs very smoothly with a hair of feedback, but not much - just enough to know it is working. However, the nib does look like it was stamped from VERY thin steel and the designs are a hair off from the slit.
If you fill the barrel completely the pen works very well. However, I did not know this the first few days and I only partially filled the barrel. On a very hot day the air inside the barrel expanded and pushed some ink into the cap which then got on the barrel when I posted it. ...Inky fingers. Once I learned about the expanding air and the need to keep it full I have not noticed any ink leaking from the point where the section and feed meet. I have had ZERO ink leaking form the point where the section screws into the barrel. There is a huge amount of threads on the barrel/section area and coupled with some silicon grease It's hard imagine anything escaping... I'm serious... there are a LOT of threads! Good for an eyedropper.
The clip is just folded metal, but I love the design. Simple contours that look good. The ebonite cap does have one small breather hole, and the feed is also ebonite.
I paid about $40 including shipping. I think it was a good deal. I enjoy the warm ebonite feel, the nib performance, the giant smooth shape and the clean design. I would like to see a better looking nib as I think the two tone distracts from the overall cleaner theme.
