I don't normally do this kind of thing but the brushed version looks like it may be a good option for a mark up pen for me.  It's a pity there isn't an extra fine Jowo nib option, but the beauty of Jowo nibs is that they are easily available and easy to swap.

I forgot to ask before I placed my order: is the inscription available in Devanagari or only in Roman? Thank you.

In the description you wrote that the pen is a 3-in-1 filler (eyedr + c/c), but on the form there's a choice between eyedropper and c/c: which is the difference between the two options? 
I mean, the eyedropper version can still accomodate c/c ? 

Thanks


Eyedropper version cannot be used with cartridge or converter...
However the CC Mechanism one can be used as an eye dropper... Thus it is called 3 in 1.. Because it can be used with cartridge, converter and also as an eyedropper

I am confused by the filling mechanism and nib options.  I would like a Schmidt #6 nib, but I also would like to use this pen as an eyedropper.  If I choose c/c mechanism on the order form, can I still remove the converter and use the pen as an eyedropper?


CC Mechanism can be used as an eyedropper but only eyedropper version can't be used with converter or cartridge..

So if you choose Schmidt nib mechanism.. You can also use it as eyedropper

After waiting for this to appear for so long I missed out on being in the first 20... aaaugh

Anyway thanks for doing this, I filled out the form, although I must note here we were going to have one of those gorgeous acrylic blanks as an option... oh well, one can always hope. And this will be beautiful too. Imagine it filled with a beautiful deep purple or burgundy ink...

For that you can send your custom acrylic blank to subramaniam and get the order placed.. But again that will be custom order

To me brushed and translucent are not always the same thing.  Brushed is a surface finish, and translucent is a property of the material.  In this case though I suppose it means brushed AND translucent.  I hope so because I put on my order a note asking for brushed finish - the description was unclear enough to make me ask.

Brushed finish here we are referring to as transclucent look wise...

We very well understand the difference...

Kindly Note that there is only one variant which is Complete Translucent or Brushed Finish.

 

It's the "or" that caused the confusion for me. Makes it sound like a choice. :D
