A few weeks ago ASA's Mr. Subramaniam [NAYY] sent me and few other FPN members a picture of a pen that was made of acrylic. 

 

Upon seeing those pictures, a land grab style blood bath ensued   :lol:  with fellow fountain pen lovers trying to get their ink stained fingers on as many pens as possible.

 

I came away with 4 pieces which I want to share with you today. I got these a few days ago and so I am still in the process of reviewing them, I will be updating this review in the coming weeks.

 

Every fountain pen user has that one pen that he/she wants, that one pen which is their 'grail'. An acrylic of this type was on my list but I had given up any hopes of acquiring it given their prices. Finally ASA has come up with these beautiful models which were affordable.

 

The pens are a joy to hold. I haven't inked them up yet as I've been busy admiring their looks. Watching them glisten in sunlight.

 

The acrylic is of the highest quality and has very beautiful swirls!!!

 

I wanted to bust out the callipers and come with detailed measurements and other nerdy details... but heck!!! look at these pictures, this is by far the most beautiful fountain pen I've ever laid my eyes on.

 

The pen fits snuggly in my large hands, is very nicely balanced.

 

The nib is Ambitious 35mm chrome.

There were couple other colors I couldn't get my hands on - yellow and red. These were grabbed by other FPN members.

They look great.  This will be an interesting addition to the ebonite pens on offer.

It's a pity I have logged in after ages. These are absolutely gorgeous! Mr Subramaniam should really start making a full run of these lovely acrylics. They'll sell like anything!
