Hi guys,
Guess i missed reading this thread. I had spoken to Subbu last week and have ordered two of these with the schmidt B nib and converter set. Once these come in, they will take my total count of naukas to 7 :)
Cheers

Hi Vaibhav,

Thanks for organising another great group buy. I made an order via Google form.

Can we think about another version of trans nauka?. The barrel, instead of the bakul finish, can have a cracked ice finish and a polished finial. The inspiration is the Franklin Christoph Model 2 intrinsic in smoke and ice finish. I think that pen is stunning when used as an eye dropper. I sent an email to Mr. Subramaniam a few days back on this, but yet to hear back.

What is your thought on this ?

Thanks,
Dinuraj

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

Now it is clear.. I guess...
Thank you for pointing this out... Will be more precise next time

This group buy is only for brushed finish..
The external Polish finish with ice effect we have yet to master.. Once mastered.. We will confirm you...

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

Just to be clear, I will let the order stand, if I have a blank & want a custom order I will order separately... so please keep my name on the list for the group buy...

Ordered one, incidentally it is my first from FPN group buy. Is there any comparison of the nauka's size with other pens?

People probably just filled out the form and didn't reply. I can count three people on that list who I know ordered around the same time I did and they haven't replied to the thread at all.

Thank-you


I'd also like to know the clip color. Might help me decide between the clip or clipless. Thanks.
