Mani

Maker: Guider

The comments I might make about this pen are generally the same as those for the Vishal; the vent holes are somewhat for show and slightly counterproductive.  It is made of an extremely decorative acrylic rather than the Vishal’s hard rubber, which gives it a slightly different feel, and altogether different smell, and likely better durability (not, to date, that I’ve tested it).  The model name is sanskrit for “gem”– quite appropriate.

Production Run: Uncertain of start– certainly in production in the first decade of the 21st century.

Cost When New: $24.00 is what I paid in 2008, which is certainly a great deal more than the non-exported price, but still a relative bargain.

Size: 13.2 cm long capped, 15.4 cm posted, 11.8 cm uncapped.

Point: Plated steel (in 2011, the importer’s site showed a 14k gold upgrade available, but it’s possible that was more in the line of an after-market point).

Body: Acrylic.

Filler: Eyedropper, capacity approx. 2.6 ml.
