I looked at their site, but did not see where I could choose the color of the ebonite. Could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

 

 

Some models have color options like the following page:

if you are interested in a particular model, I suggest you drop an email to them asking for color options, lead times, nib options etc.

Elegant incorporation of a clip into the bamboo design, and the material is gorgeous.

thanks Bob.

I feel a lot of bamboo-shaped pens are a bit too in-your-face, so I love the subtlety of this one. Nice decision on your part to add the clip, and masterfully executed!

Are the Lotus logos engraved directly onto the ebonite on the finials?

On my pen, I think there is a black insert on which the logo is engraved.

Thanks, Hari. Your review convinced me to get one -- I just placed an order (no inserts). :D

I went with the same Nikko ebonite + clip, minus the finial logos. Not exactly the adventurous type. ;)

It'll be interesting to see what kind of stuff they will produce in addition to their current line-up.

Yeah, I am curious too, their latest seems to be a dolce vita-esque model

Yes, I saw that too. Personally, I would like to see more ebonite pens. It would be cool if they could get their hands on some of the Nikko marble ebonite used on the Eboya pens -- I wonder if they are exclusive to Eboya.

Very nice pen, and I like the way the clip has been added. Thanks for this review.

They have some solid green rods now and a black purple yellow ripple rod, I have been asking for the rippled rods, lets see.

Hari-

 

After reading your review..you {metaphorically} twisted my arm and I willingly caved in.

 

            Thanks..I needed that.

nothing left but a river flowing on the borders of heaven.

Excellent review of a beautiful pen. I'm afraid I do have some bad news for you, though. I'm going to have to send you the bill for my Lotus Shikhar i ordered in the same material because of your glowing review. Can't wait for it to arrive!

 Hari-

 

Have been usin' the Vamza.

 

The workmanship is flawless and the execution of the Nikko ebonite is outstanding.

I swapped out the original nib  for a Au cursive italic {750/1000}.

Contemplating a vermeil snake..trident..clip.

Folks a real bargain..buy with confidence. Transit time from Mumbai to New York City four days.

Thats really nice to hear. Would love to see some pictures of your example. A snake would look superb on it.

Hari thanks for the review. This is the pen I have been waiting years for and probably would have never seen it if it wasn’t for you. I just ordered it with a silver clip and threaded bock to house a titanium nib.
