WDP4BAAZ Posted April 14, 2016 Share Posted April 14, 2016 Hello friends , Here is the story , how by search for the perfect everyday carry pen comes to the end ! Options considered : Wality 69T : Issues with nib and feed but good ink carrying capacity Pelikan M200 : Great piston filler but risk in using it on a shop floor Chinese pens : Poor ink carrying capacity Other cartridge/convertor models : Again ink capacity issue My requirements : Large ink storage capacity , minimum 2 ml - have to go for an eyedropper Simple to maintain and clean - Again an eyedropper Full burp free performance - Have to for for a Schmidt nib unit Materials preferred - Combination of ebonite and acrylic No surprises for ink levels - Have to go for a demonstrator Sturdy and reliable - Have to go for our well known brand i.e. ASA from Chennai, India as pen is going to be used on shop floor and not in an air conditioned office After discussion with Mr Subramanium of ASA pens , he gladly accepted my request to manufacture my first custom pen And finally here is the outcome : ASA " Bhau" eyedropper The word "Bhau" means "Big brother" in Marathi language , The design is inspired from ASA genius pen Design : Cap : Rounded cap with simple teardrop chrome clip . Cap posts nicely Barrel : Full transparent lathe turned barrel for checking ink level Section : Green swirled ebonite section of dia 11 mm Nib and feed : Renowned Schmidt medium nib unit for burp free performance Conclusion : Enjoying spectacular craftsmanship of ASA once again Hope you all will enjoy this review Awaiting comments from you all as usual , Regards , BAAZ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
