for some reason I can't see the premium ebonite image... :unsure:

 

I also wanted to check if the bakul finish is only applied to the ebonite parts, or also the transparent acrylic... if it's both, is there an image we can see please?

Bakul finish can be applied to both acrylic and ebonite also

Please excuse my ignorance, but could you please tell me what the difference(s) are between normal and premium ebonite?

Also, when is payment due? We're getting ready to head to Hawaii, and don't want to spend extra until we get back, which is prior to your cutoff date of March 16th.

I don't know much about the different nib brands, either. If someone wanted to enlighten me about that, I'd be grateful, although it's not expected.

Thanks!

Provided I can wait to pay for the pen until we get back from Hawaii (long before the March 18th cutoff date), I'd like to order a Premium Ebonite Pen with the converter and the default Schmidt Gold Colored monotone F nib.  I would like premium color #2 (Blue/Green/Orange Swirls).  I would like the pen to be polished, have a gold clip, and have a round end,  please :) .

 

Am I correct in thinking that the price for this pen would be 73 USD?

 

Thanks!

Sorry for late reply..
Normal or regular ebonite is high quality Indian ebonite.. It is called regular because of standard colors... Quality is by no means low..
Premium Ebonite are imported ebonite.. These are German/Japanese ebonite and are of bit superior quality and have different colors than usual ones..

Last date to order is 18th March..

Ambitious and wality are Indian nibs.. And pens are generally eyedropper with these nibs..

JoWo or Schmidt are German nib manufacturer and the pens with these nibs have cartridge converter mechanism..
