ASA – Galactic Jumbo Demonstrator

ASA – Galactic was my first demonstrator. I never liked the demonstrators but i decided to go ahead with the purchase and amazingly I was the first one to buy this. Following is my review of the pen.

Design & Build:

My first demonstrator is a jumbo sized pen which has a fogged finish. The pen looks like what it is named “Galactic”

The real beauty comes out when you ink up this pen. Aaaaah so beautiful. I have suddenly started liking the demonstrators. The pen is beautifully engraved with company logo on the barrel and also my name is engraved on the cap (Special thanks to Mr. Subramaniam). Made out of acrylic the barrel is in fog finish with crystal clear bottom and screw in crystal top at the cap.

Filled with ink.

Uncapped Pen with my Name engraved on Cap

The grip section is again made of acrylic resin and i love the way the it shows ink spread out unevenly. It has a big nib which complements the pen perfectly.

Clear Crystal Top and Bottom

Built wise i believe it needs certain care as this is a acrylic pen.

Amazing photos and a very good review! Thanks for sharing! What was the cost of name engraving?

Rs. 50 for engraving....

That's sharp! Also, not a Demonstrator lover, but that one, including the engraving on the cap is really nice. Nice review also and the pictures are nearly breathtaking. Thanks

I opted for a German M nib, hoping it works well!!

Mine arrived today, what a wonderful pen, and nice to see the really fine threads holding the section on, takes ages to screw back together but that will keep the ink from flowing out that way.

 

The product name engraving has changed a little but not by much, but now tells you the pen is made in India.

 

It writes wonderfully and swallowed up a whole 5ml sample vial of Diamine Tyrian Purple I had on my desk. By the time I primed the feed it could have taken at least another 1ml.

 

it will be going to work with me tomorrow and I will see how well it puts up with working in my warm overly stuffy office.

 

Thank you again for giving me a new pen to try, this one is great and will be fighting with my pair of F27 to see who gets written with most.

I never liked demonstrators before this one... I really love the feel of ink sloshing in this one...

I love the Galactic, it's a lovely wet writer and it is helping to burn through my ink samples (Goulets Ink Drop program).

This truly is a gorgeous pen. I have steered away from eyedroppers before now but this is something I have to own. Thank you for the review!
