Thank you, Prithwijit for the detailed revue.

 

Enjoy your pen.

 

Is this pen a futur new model to be comercialised by ASA, or is it a one time pen?

From what is written in the review, you will have to procure the blanks yourself from the mentioned source. So the model is there, but to get the same design, you need to get the blanks.

@Ray J - Yes, I understand this one was a costum order.

 

I just wondered if ASA was eventually going to propose it, later, as another model of it's collection. Just curious, not that I would want one made. :)

I believe so. It looks like a nice pen, but another centimeter long would have made it better for me. But that would require 2 blanks.

 

Since ASA pens have said that they would make it after Nauka Group buy, I should import the blanks for this. I'm in India so no problem with placing the order at least. :)

I am sorry I hadn't seen your response.

 

Thank you for it.

 

Sure, that's what we do here, share picture of our pens and inks. :)

 

Although I don't trust my photography skills, I'll try to take good pictures. :)

 

Thank you. I am sure you will do perfectly fine :)

I have been insisting that ASA expands it's catalogue of offerings and especially offer a few nice designs using special materials other than standard ebonites and pastel acrylics. Fingers crossed to see some such offers soon even if he makes them in limited numbers.

Everybody likes smaller pens. I, on the other hand like them big. :)

 

Anyway, I went to the mentioned website for the blanks.

#28 looks like the blank this pen was made from.

I liked #26, #52 and #54.

Once you visit www.muttblanks.com and start exploring the options under lava explosion, its hard to stop oneself from ordering all of them. Each design is interesting and unique. I wish someone uses #12 blanks too since they closely resemble the colours of the Indian Triclolour.

 

If you are buying ready blanks from the website, please order two pieces of five inches each for the material that you choose. That should be enough to have a proper sized pen with clips.

It could be interstenging. In a smaller size, in black ébonite and with a Ambitious nib.

 

That pen already exists. Its called the Guider Onyx.

 

Personally though, I wont bother pairing a stock ambitious nib with such a fine material. At the very least I would opt for the Schmidt FH 452 or FH 341.

I measured my Guider onyx and it's close to 150mm in length capped. So not smaller unless I am doing something wrong.

If the pen is made from 2 blanks, am I correct in guessing that it will not be possible to maintain a continuity in design with the pen capped?

I believe there are some piece to piece variations. The Onyx I had as reference was shorter at 146mm. It was also much thinner with a 13.5mm - 14mm approximate diameter.

 

The continuity can anyway not be maintained since the barrel piece and the cap piece has a break in between. The barrel needs to accommodate the threads for the cap and approx 6-10mm is required there. As a result any continuity with the cap doesn't happen.

 

The other option is to use solid coloured materials where this is not an issue.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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
