I have no experience using ASA pens before. This Popsicle looks really "delicious". I have some queries though:

 

1. Is it possible to to reduce the flair at the end of the grip section?

2. What is the ink capacity in ED mode. I am intending to use this pen for my exams also.

3. Whether it is possible to get a spare nib unit. I want a fine and a broad nib unit.

4. Would ASA sell silicon grease with it.

 

Thanks,

Aniruddha

Got my Popsicle today in Shiny Ivory. It is a giant of a pen, certainly a homage to KOP

The section is very comfortable to hold and the acrylic has been polished to perfection

WOW. That pen is HUGE. Bigger than a 149?

Anyone like Ray Bradbury? Please read "The Laurel and Hardy Love Affair" if you have about 12 minutes.

If it's not to late to order, I could I have a Floral Rose one with Fine nib, and a Sky Blue with Medium nib?[/quote

 

Will revert on Sky Blue on PM

Hi Mehandiratta,

 

Would you know whether there is an option of having an UEF nib? A nib which gives a line width of 0.2mm would be fine. I can't write with Schmidt fine nibs and this pen is of the size I prefer.

 

Thanks & Regards

Absolutely Agree to the writing experience mentioned above, it is a schmidt nib which have had a good reputation of writing a good wet line in all F, M, B options. The Nib in the pen pictured is a Medium tipped Nib, writes out of the cap every single time. It has no issues of leak inside the cap in hot humid conditions. While writing the pen does not feel heavy and is comfortable for long writing requirements, equipped to be used as a ED (eye Dropper) or a International Convertor/Cartridge seems to fit tastes of either groups. The Clip has been designed to fit securely in most normal conditions pockets, ledgers, folders and purse. I do carry it in the Shirt Pocket and have not had to worry of it dropping during daily use. Though pink at first was not my first choice, it grew on me eventually every picture i saw. I love the color of the pen. Similar to a Safari this pen is very versatile and good for daily use and did i forget to mention it is awesome.

I ordered a blue one via the link in the first post. I hope it will arrive soon. The pens look amazing.

Always lurking, sometimes posting.

What beautiful pens! (Un)fortunately, I missed the deadline but am looking forward to more reviews and perhaps a re-offer?

      @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.

      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
    • A Smug Dill
      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.
