After reading a lot about the Gama pens on here, I visited the ASAPens site and found a nice desk pen by Gama called Ezhuthani. It's the Tamil word for Stylus or Desk pen
It looked like a dip pen but is an eyedropper filling pen.
My other purchases from ASA (no affiliation) were the regular Gama fountain pens, reviews of which are plentiful on this forum.
As always, excellent service from Mr. Subramaniam and I received the pen in 3 days time.
It came packed in a lovely velvety pouch. I ordered a Light Brown and black mottled shade. Absolutely gorgeous to look at. The stock nib with the pen was a steel fine nib Gama FIVE.
I pulled the pen apart and was immediately taken back with the size of the feed. This pen has a LONG LONG feed.
I am not sure about the design aspect of this but in all the Gama pens I have, the feed sticks out of the section and into the barrel.
Cleaned out the parts and inked it up with some Camel Black Ink.
I had a dip pen made by Ranga before to take a Nikko G nib. I wanted to try a flex nib on this pen too. The only nib that fit without any modifications to the nib or pen was a Gillot 303.
I didn't do any writing with the standard nib that came with the pen, so I can't really comment on the way it writes.
A few pictures:

This is a Wonderful pen and works beautifully with a Gillot nib.
