I'm still wondering how I held out so long. I've only just ordered one of the new model, a few days ago. Of course, I have the clipped and clipless version of the first iteration... and they are really wonderful. So I guess my next Onyx could be part of the group buy... I will be going for a burgundy clipless.

Actually, now I think I'll get the 4C too with Prasad's modification to take the pointed nibs!

 

And I thought I won't buy any new ones in the first three months. Already in here,

- Onyx

- Writer

- 4C

 

Whereas my list for the year had a total of 5 pens (of which none are in here). Sigh...

 

Edit: Added the modification for 4C

It looks like we haven't got enough to do it via Asapens, is anyone willing to do it without them?

Edited by anup, 06 February 2015 - 13:13.

I put my savings to test

Lamy & Pilot FPs the Best

No more I even think of the rest

(Preference Fine and Extra Fine Nibs)

+1 for the lamy 2000 design.  With an ink window though?

 

and you can count me in for 2 pens.  That makes it 7 I think  :)

Come on guys...  chance to get a custom handmade ebonite pen made to our own specifications....

I think if he knows about it, he will make it anyway. The Group Buy is for price determination.

As such I also find the Ratnamson 21 rounded ends interesting. But no idea about its size or price.

But equally skeptical about its nib ! Uses a Camlin nib argh....

Yes a very nice idea.. Matt black finish Lamy 2000 design with ink window.. 

Would be nice if its a triple filler.. Converter, Cartridge and Eyedropper (have seen such pens made on ASA website)

I would like both P51 design and Lamy 2000 design.
 
Shiny finish black or rippled green
 
But nib should be good - not hacked from Camlin (else one can buy the Camlin for Rs 40)
 
The pen should not be very slim like the Chinese ones, but should have a "normal" section / girth.
 
The pen should be postable (posted length should preferably be like Genius / 78G).
 
There should be ink window (preferably in the middle not in the end)
 
Preference for threaded cap and not push cap

Cap should not have hole
 
Ink filler should be either ED type or C/c or the triple fillers. It should not be hacked aerometric filler from Chinese ones like some other manufacturers do.
 
Whatever - dont try to save pennies by cutting features - but make a good pen of good quality so that there is good writing experience.
 
I am ready to wait for a good pen.
