Thank you, Prithwijit for the detailed revue.
 
Enjoy your pen.
 
Is this pen a futur new model to be comercialised by ASA, or is it a one time pen?

From what is written in the review, you will have to procure the blanks yourself from the mentioned source. So the model is there, but to get the same design, you need to get the blanks.

@Ray J - Yes, I understand this one was a costum order.

 

I just wondered if ASA was eventually going to propose it, later, as another model of it's collection. Just curious, not that I would want one made. :)

I believe so. It looks like a nice pen, but another centimeter long would have made it better for me. But that would require 2 blanks.

Since ASA pens have said that they would make it after Nauka Group buy, I should import the blanks for this. I'm in India so no problem with placing the order at least. :)

Sure, that's what we do here, share picture of our pens and inks. :)

Although I don't trust my photography skills, I'll try to take good pictures. :)

I have been insisting that ASA expands it's catalogue of offerings and especially offer a few nice designs using special materials other than standard ebonites and pastel acrylics. Fingers crossed to see some such offers soon even if he makes them in limited numbers.

It could be interstenging. In a smaller size, in black ébonite  and with a Ambitious nib.

Everybody likes smaller pens. I, on the other hand like them big. :)

Anyway, I went to the mentioned website for the blanks.
#28 looks like the blank this pen was made from.
I liked #26, #52 and #54.

Once you visit www.muttblanks.com and start exploring the options under lava explosion, its hard to stop oneself from ordering all of them. Each design is interesting and unique. I wish someone uses #12 blanks too since they closely resemble the colours of the Indian Triclolour.

 

If you are buying ready blanks from the website, please order two pieces of five inches each for the material that you choose. That should be enough to have a proper sized pen with clips.

That pen already exists. Its called the Guider Onyx.

 

Personally though, I wont bother pairing a stock ambitious nib with such a fine material. At the very least I would opt for the Schmidt FH 452 or FH 341.

I measured my Guider onyx and it's close to 150mm in length capped. So not smaller unless I am doing something wrong.

If the pen is made from 2 blanks, am I correct in guessing that it will not be possible to maintain a continuity in design with the pen capped?

I believe there are some piece to piece variations. The Onyx I had as reference was shorter at 146mm. It was also much thinner with a 13.5mm - 14mm approximate diameter.

 

The continuity can anyway not be maintained since the barrel piece and the cap piece has a break in between. The barrel needs to accommodate the threads for the cap and approx 6-10mm is required there. As a result any continuity with the cap doesn't happen. 

 

The other option is to use solid coloured materials where this is not an issue.
