Hi Everyone,

 

I'm thinking about getting my first Indian ebonite pen and the Gama Eyas seems perfect for me.

The only problem is that I want the glossy finish instead of the matte black.

AsaPens only has the latter, so where online can I order the glossy version?

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi

You can contact ASA Pens on email... He will be able to send you the glossy version...

Also, in my opinion matte one is better

Thanks Vaibhav for the quick response!

 

I'm curious, why do you like the matte version more? Is the glossy version too slippery or scratch prone?

 

What I like is that it reminds me of a Nakaya, but without the large step between barrel and section that those pens often have.

I just saw it and thought, "Ooh, shiny!" :P

Better Grip... 

Glossy looses shine after some time and get scratches ...

Thanks for answering...after looking around at various reviews for polished ebonite pens, I saw that sometimes the polishing job isn't perfect. The matte finish definitely makes more sense in the long run.

 

Then after reading your superb Patriot review I got steered more in that direction and away from the Eyas. :P
