ASA Pens has launched ASA Daily and it looks like a really good buy! It's available in interesting ebonite colors - forest green (a lighter, brighter, green), yellow tiger. The size too looks just right for an EDC. With the Schmidt unit, it would be a reliable writer.

 

Some pics from the ASA Pens website, while I wait for my own ASA Daily to arrive by mail:

It is in the same price range of ASA Swan hence i find it expensive

 

I wouldn't call it more expensive. Both Swan and Daily come with Schmidt nib units. Swan is in a different material from the Daily, and is made as a pocket pen. To me, both look like they're priced just fine. Also, I think the current Swan pricing is an introductory offer.

Do the Schmidt nibs units unscrew or are they glued in? I don't know if you know. Thanks.

I am using the Made in India ebonite beauty.... DAILY which is an inexpensive eyedropper pen from ASA pens.


This one comes with Fine Nib made by Ambitious in India.



The other iteration is one which comes with 3 in 1 mechanism as in can be used with converter, cartridge and as an eyedropper.... though at little extra cost

I got one in black with Schmidt unit. I like a good sized grip and reliability. Usually that means spending a fair amount, but this was a pleasant exception. There are a few minor pits in the ebonite, which I understand is typical, and it takes a few turns of the cap to open, but those are minor concerns for my use of letter writing. I really enjoy using this pen.

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
