I have questions; may I?
- Do you think there will be a transparent acrylic version available, that looks more or less like this "prototype'? Because that looks great.
- Will German nib units be used in this? I'm wondering because I don't understand how a screw-in nib could work together with a hooded nib; am I missing something?
- How much longer will you be gathering pledges from interested buyers? I'm asking because I will be on holiday next week and subsequently won't be spending much time on fpn.
I have no idea - but when the manufacturer tried a transparent barrel previously as sort of prototype, he would surely finalize it - thats what logic says.
As such ASA has been experimenting with transparent acrylic resins (like in Galactic & Maven) and I am pretty sure, he will have a transparent barrel version as well - maybe even colored acrylic (I would love to have one). I am not privy to these issues, but based on his replies, these are what i surmise.
As this group buy pen *has to be* manufactured from scratch (design type has been conceptualized only a few days back among the group buy members) I think few weeks should be given for the project
As such if you ask him persuasively with clear intention and commitment to buy, Mr. S may be more forthcoming. The ASA contact is at http://asapens.in/es...ent-interaction
I guess Mr. Vaibhav is already in touch with him on this.
I put my savings to test
Lamy & Pilot FPs the Best
No more I even think of the rest

Pen is meant for writing - not for looking :-)
