the acrylic ones. Those were the only versions available when I bought my examples. Of course things seem to have changed or evolved quite a bit in the meanwhile. Do all authors come with this clip shown by SBP now?

The photos of acrylic Authors that I was shown had a different clip. The pics of Ebonite Authors as well as Advocates that I was shown had clips similar to the one I have.

That does look like a nice pen.  And ebonite has such a nice warmth to it.  

What's the size (length, girth) and weight?  I have to use smaller size pens because I have girly hands, and too big and heavy isn't comfortable.  Weight-wise, the limit is 28 grams capped or posted (which is the weight of the TWSBI 580-AL and 580-ALR, and is now my benchmark for weight limit on pens).

Ruth Morrisson aka inkstainedruth

 

Thank you, Ruth... The dimensions are as follows:
 

Length (capped) = 14.7 cm

Length (uncapped) = 12.6 cm

Length (posted) = 17.2 cm

Cap alone = 6.2 cm

 

Girth of cap (top, closed portion) = 1.2 cm

Girth of cap (bottom, open portion) = 1.5 cm

Girth of End of barrel = 1.1 cm.

 

Sorry, no weight; since I do not have a weighing equipment...

Were you referring to ebonite authors or all authors? The acrylics still cost quite a bit (Rs. 6,000 IIRC), but they charge a very reasonable price for the ebonites.

 

I have one of these red ebonites, very nicely finished. The size seems to have gotten a bit larger as well. 

 

The cost for Acrylic Author was quoted to be Rs. 4750.

It also comes in colorful designs. I am linking the picture that was sent to me.

I hope I am not violating any rules or causing harm to anybody (especially the manufacturer) by openly mentioning prices. I guess it is understood that prices and products may change any time.

I also do not have any affiliation to promote Deccan pens.

But I must say I am very happy to deal with them - their customer service is excellent over phone and whatsapp. I will certainly be visiting their store when I visit Hyderabad. And also I am reasonably certain that I will buy more pens from them :)

By the way, they have matt-finish red Advocates as well.

Deccan pen stores also has Deccan Masterpiece in Acrylic. They now use Kanwrite nibs instead of Ambitious ones.

Personally I liked the ebonite model better.

They are different. The white one was completely white. There were other colors also (e.g. brown, black etc)
I will try to get some pictures when I go there this weekend.
