Very nice. I was requesting a green translucent Nauka for years. So, it is a dream come true :-) 

 

Does the ASA nib version come up cartridge/convertor ?

I have been considering a Nauka for ages ..... but I just don’t like this colour! Will there be other options in future? Please?

I chose my user name years ago - I have no links to BBS pens (other than owning one!)

Okay -- I've been sucked into this... Think it was the turned acrylic in a "demonstrator" that attracted me, vs so many using mold blown thermoplastics.

A very satisfied customer has just placed an order.  I had been looking at these for quite a while so I guess this was all the excuse I needed.  Heading over to the website to see if I have any other unmet needs.

Is it possible to request for a slight customisation in a group buy? Because I personally would love to have a slightly shorter (but still fits a converter), flat top version of the nauka.
