Sorry, not sure how to turn the pictures, but hope it is helpful for some considering this pen.

I just pimped my Asa Nauka with this little gem:

I think it makes the pen look "less black" if that makes any sense. I like black/gold pens, but all black somehow seemed too much.

How do you do that?

It looks really nice with the snake around...

Yes, the 16mm version is a tight fit, it slides over if you push it carefully and then stays like that. Occasionally it twists a little when uncapping, but nothing seriously moves.

For now, I've bookmarked that site. Will wait until the Nauka is here & I've tried it before deciding on any add-ons. But if any, this will be it!

It's more expensive than the Nauka, but I have no regrets, think it is a nice upgrade to a very nice pen.

Yes, I can imagine. It's very beautiful.

And it would be so cool to have a piece of 3D-printed jewelry!

I am curious if this pen is still available for purchase with a 1.1mm stub Jowo nib? I don't see the option for nib sizes pertaining to Jowo (only Schmidt) and I have my heart set on the stub in a clipless matte black finish.

 

Thanks,

William

I just ordered the same model. All black shiny clipless with Jowo broad nib. I like the simplicity of the pen. Looking forward to recieving it. I know sometimes with the black ebonites from india, the ebonite material has pores in it. Is this the case for your pen?

Not to the naked eye. If you put it under a magnifying glass, you probably detect something.
