Hello FPN members and guests!

 

 

Today i will be reviewing the pen(Wality/Airmail 70AM) that i received just today through asapens.in. But before i start the review i would like to give a "thumbs up!" to ASA pens and Mr. L.Subramaniam! It was my 1st purchase from their site and i must say i am quite pleased with their service and the quality of the product and also the FP collection that they have.

 

Okay, so that aside lets start with the pen itself.

 

Airmail Pen Company was established in 1951 by Late Shri. Mohan L. Mirchandani and is one of the oldest of its kind in India. It produces two brands of Writing Instruments, Wality and Airmail.

 

The pen, along with the usual packaging and bubble wrap came in a transparent and sturdy Zip-lock pen pouch. The pouch also contained a little eyedropper as it is an eyedropper pen.

The pen itself has this beautiful Pinkish orange and purple acrylic body which shimmers in light and is very pleasing to the eye. The material also displays quite a depth to it.

The cap is all metal with a beautiful texture, a dome shaped pointed top and an acrylic bottom that matches the pen body quite nicely. I also like the short clip, which has enough tension to it that it can secure the pen firmly in the pocket.

Upon unscrewing the cap, you find a matching coloured semi-transparent grip section with a gold coloured airmail nib. The nib that i received was Fine-Medium in writing width and Very Very Wet! And i mean a GUSHER! It wrote quite pleasantly with some feedback. Also, it has some spring to it which offers a marginal line variation.

WRITING SAMPLE:

Conclusion: It is a simple no-nonsense beautiful looking pen which performs quite nicely. I am looking forward to writing with it regularly and enjoying the shimmery acrylic which is sure to be an eye candy in bright sunlight!

If you are looking for a beautiful economical everyday pen this one might add a feather to your collection!

You are welcome! And thanks a lot for your comment.
Glad to find a fellow user of the pen. I had thought that the single colour scheme of the pen might not appeal to many! Although, I agree its a really nice daily writer and I like the colour as well.
The ink I used is chelpark turquoise.

Agreed! This is one of my 1st airmail pens and I am quite impressed with the quality. And for the price they sell, it is a steal for a handmade pen!
Thanks for your comment!

Good review of a nice pen, and great pictures!

I could see that this nib is one I have some spares of, and I just mounted one in my Swarna because it's nib tips broke due to corrosion...

I'm surprised you find the nib springy - and I can see it in the writing sample too - because mine is quite stiff.

The colors of your pen are beautiful, and that cap... Enjoy!

I wanted to buy this pen. Its so beautiful. But by the time I made up my mind I had already purchased so many pens from ASApens.in that I was hardly left with a penny.  :) . Their services are excellent. Mr. Subramaniam is the kind of person who leaves no stone unturned to satisfy his customers. 

 

Purchasing a fountain pen is always a pleasure. Purchasing from him appears more pleasurable...
