Recntly ASA launched a new model in translucent blue acrylic and named it “Aqua”. The pen was looking so beautiful that I couldn’t resist myself to get one for me at once. I immediately called up Mr.Subramanium and ordered one for myself.
ASA is one of the recent pen makers of India, who have been innovating in various ways,in fact they were the first to launch 3 in 1 filling system in handmade pens.They also first launched the translucent finish in their models.
Though I have already reviewed both ASA Nauka in ebonite and translucent versions, I only would like to share the beauty of Aqua through this pictorial; before that a short description and dimensions of the pen for those who aren’t familier with the Nauka yet.
The aqua blue translucent Nauka is a full acrylic fountain pen, completely handmade and is available as an Eyedropper or a 3 in1 filling. My Tangerine was clipless and this time I prefered Aqua with clip.I really wanted to take it with Jowo fine nib unit, but my wallet didn’t allow me to do so. I had to console myself with an ED version with ASA stock monotone fine nib..but it writes so well and flawless that I have become more than happy.
Aqua, my ED version,capped
Look, how beautiful it is!
