Dear All

 

This is a dedicated thread for group buys of ASA pens.

Currently we are pitching in for the ASA hooded pen prototype.

 

Would request all to submit their names who all are in here for the customized hooded ASA pen either in acrylic or ebonite..

 

:) :)

I m in. One in black. Second depending on colors offered.

I put my savings to test

Lamy & Pilot FPs the Best

No more I even think of the rest

(Preference Fine and Extra Fine Nibs)

Pen is meant for writing - not for looking :-)

Even an acrylic resin transparent barrel is a pretty good option.

 

ASA had done a prototype thing earlier

I'm in tentatively. I'd need to have some idea about price before I can commit though.

 

m counting you in .... because i am sure off the price... it will be surely reasonable....

Also lets see if it can be a triple filler

I have questions; may I?

 

- Do you think there will be a transparent acrylic version available, which will look more or less like this "prototype'? Because that looks great.

- Will German nib units be used in this? I'm wondering because I don't understand how a screw-in nib could work together with a hooded nib; am I missing something?

- How much longer will you be gathering pledges from interested buyers? I'm asking because I will be on holiday next week and subsequently won't be spending much time on fpn.

I have no idea - but when the manufacturer tried a transparent barrel previously as sort of prototype, he would surely finalize it - thats what logic says.

 

As such ASA has been experimenting with transparent acrylic resins (like in Galactic & Maven) and I am pretty sure, he will have a transparent barrel version as well - maybe even colored acrylic (I would love to have one). I am not privy to these issues, but based on his replies, these are what i surmise.

 

As this group buy pen *has to be* manufactured from scratch (design type has been conceptualized only a few days back among the group buy members) I think few weeks should be given for the project

 

As such if you ask him persuasively with clear intention and commitment to buy, Mr. S may be more forthcoming. The ASA contact is at http://asapens.in/eshop/100-percent-interaction

 

I guess Mr. Vaibhav is already in touch with him on this.

Hello,

 

I am in for a Black Ebonite Pen (M Nib) based on the Lamy 2000. I am new here so please let me know how to go about this.

 

Thanks & Regards,

I'd like to sign up for 1 pen in acrylic.

 

I would like it with a transparent acrylic barrel (a la demonstrator) and I would like to be an M nib.

I hope this can be arranged.

 

Thank you.
