Asa - I Can - Fountain Pen Review


Recommended Posts


Hello fellow FPN members

Please find my review of ASA I Can below.





A well written review and beautiful cursive handwriting. Good mix of inks. I've been using a mix of Bril Blue and Black, will try your camlin black and red combination - your color looks quite good. I wonder if a mix of green and red would result in some nice shade of orange..

I'm a little late to this thread, but I wanted to thank you for the comparison with the Advocate.


I have an I Can in mottled green on the way that I intend to fill with Diamine Salamander.

Hi Rakshit,


Compliments on your excellent review and thank you for going out of your way in procuring and sending across the Deccan Advocate pen for me. it was your review that generated my interest in these two models and thanks to your help I would soon have both of them.

Excellent review. Please also review the performance of stock nib

Stock nib is wality which isnt great but it's ok . For better performance you can opt for Kanwrite nibs they are very good , also you can always ask subbu Anna to modify the section to take jowo to Schmidt nib units ..

I can has unbranded chrome finish IPG no 6 nib by default, not Wality / Airmail nib. It is large in size and way better than Wality nib. And yes kanwrite nibs are good upgrade. Kanwrite nibs are not too costly so Subbu Anna should consider them as default nibs and make pens better.

      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.

      That looks pretty good. You might want to add wood as a material (with its weakness of staining) and mention urushi. And under ergonomic considerations, the size of section (slender pens vs chunky pens), and shape of section, and 'disturbances' such as the Lamy 2000 'ears' and Pilot Capless clip getting in the way might be worth mentioning. Also possibly a general section on things you can do yourself with a bit of care, with a bit of practice, and things that are strictly "don't try this a
