Thank you. I suppose you got these as custom pens, since they are not mentioned on his website?

I can see why you like the Eboya design, very elegant. And if the Supreme is as supreme in size as the Gama (of which I have one - a nice pen) it must be a relatively large one. So that Viraat must be huge! But I think the most intriguing one is the Long Cap. How do you write with it, does the cap post at all? And, will it be a regular offering on the shop website, once it's come out of beta testing? (can you tell I'm interested? I'd love to have one...)

Anyone, you have a really nice collection of Indian pens there, enjoy!

That is a beautiful collection.

 

The Kiouka is my favorite model from Eboya.

You are right, Subbu did good in not copying it altogether. That makes a very nice pen.

 

I do like the Long Cap, also. It reminds me some of Manu Propria models, only the Long Cap goes further on the design.

 

Some very nice specimens you have captured in your net ;)

 

Enjoy!

Nice collection and very impressive. The long cap one - is that an eye dropper or does it come with a cartridge converter? Same question on the first pen from the right. The long cap - is that available from ASA now with a converter cartridge? What is the turnaround time? And does it come in any other ebonite colours?
What's been your writing experience with these pens? Any ink leakages noted especially when any pen is an eye dropper? Sorry for asking so many questions, but am interested in some of here pens.

All my pens are friction-fit eyedroppers. You will have to ask ASA pens about cartridges; since these pens are custom made, you can get the pens exactly how you want them. I've had no issues with leaking.

Nice collection! How would you compare the ebonite vs acrylic pens? Do you prefer one material over the other?

Thanks. I prefer ebonite a little more than acrylic pens. The feel of an ebonite pen is unmatched.
