I am pleased to organize a group buy for a new model from ASA Pens, the Nauka. Nauka means boat in Hindi, which as you will see in the photographs below, is apt based on the pen's sleek lines and curves. The pen is reminiscent of the early Sheaffer Crests with threading at the top of the section and the more recent Oldwins.

 

The first group of photographs are of the initial prototype, which is an eyedropper. Please note that I put my own Nemosine cursive italic I ground. The nib options are described below (Nemosine is not the stock nib).

Some adjustments were made, and the following are photographs of the pen more close to the final production in black ebonite with a screw in nib unit:

The pricing will be as follows:

 

ED with stock nib 25$

JoWo with converter 45$
Schmidt with converter 35$

 

We need a commitment of ten purchasers to get the group buy going.

 

The pen will be available in ebonite in the following colors in addition to black:

Is rod #6 a reddish brown ebonite? Are there any other pictures available of the rods? I could go for a second pen (ED) if I liked the colour enough.

Beauty lies in the capless design... however you can still incorporate clip... i wont recommend that

Would love to have some dimensions (metric):

  1. Section diameter
  2. Unposted length (to end of section is fine since there are different nib options)
  3. Posted Length (to end of section is fine since there are different nib options)
