I have had Eyas for a few weeks. Not enough time to write a review but i'd like to share a few points about this pen.

 

 

 

Very nice drawing of inkpot & nice representation !

Thank you for the comments. Layout and inkpot came out ok but i still have a lot of work ahead on my penmanship.

 

After posting above message i decided to send a mail to Asapens – with the picture attached – inquiring for tips about starting. And they promptly & politely promised to get back to me soon.

I've usually tried pushing in the nib and feed if a Gama is a bit of a hard starter. Grab them together and gently push in. That mostly does it. All their nibs are really smooth. Sometimes pushing the tines apart a little bit, or the nib upwards from the feed, will also help. But even before that, just try priming the feed. Unscrew the barrel partway (3-4 turns) and hold the pen nib down above your ink pot (or something you would catch a few drops of ink in) and close it back. This forces a few drops of ink into and through the feed, priming it. Remember to wipe before putting your pen to paper, usually against the inkpot is enough.

Good luck! HTH.

The acrylic pens look great. As acrylic, they are turned right? As opposed to cast or injection molded. I wonder if the sections are black or body colored. Thanks for posting the photo.

Yes they are hand turned for sure. Other details i am not aware of -your question is best answered by ASA directly.

 

 

My best guess is that its colored avtar of the acrylic transparent jumbo

I got in contact with a Mr Subramaniam from Asapens regarding jowo nibs in their Gama pens. He told me he is expecting a shipment of jowo nibs any day now and will also be the jowo representative in India. The jowo nibs should be available as options on current pens and they are working on some new models.

Good Grief, that is a good looking pen. It evokes memories of a certain Eversharp pen from the 1950s. In the disassembled photo they have something dark protruding from the back of the section. Do you think that is the feed or something else? We will have to check on the availability of that pen. It looks great. I am curious as to the size, but it looks slender. Thanks for the info.

Probably the feed. It does look on the slim side, like the desk pen. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/index.php/topic/267615-ezhuthani-desk-pen-from-gama/

Then again, the Skyline wasn't exactly girthy either. Looks fantastic nonetheless.

I think it's the feed, and I find it worrisome. I had a Guider ED filled with a long feed like that, and I couldn't get it to flow ink to paper - hard start, skip, the whole bad thing. No matter what I tried. I ended up changing the feed for a shorter one, and that pen is now performing as it should.

If the feed is that long, I'd hope the channels are wide and deep!

If that's a cartridge that's a large pen!

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
