Dear All,

I was thinking to make the pens which showcase and demonstrate our speical capabilities for a very long time which is my long dream.
The Complete handmade Pen making is rare art nowadays. We make completely handmade pens which are made even without the help of Lathe.
I just wanted to combine the work of this traditional pen making technique and our special capabilities Since My father is capable of making excellent hand carving designs on the pens.
Bamboo design was one such example.
I was requesting my Father M.S.Pandurangan to design and make these pens for 4 Years, Somehow It did not get materialize for various reasons. Finally, He got some time in the festival week in the last week and made these pens.
We used Ripple Ebonites and Black Ebonites for this Project. He made 6 Pens. The making process took very long time than for our usual pens.
The result is 6 Designer Pens , It looks Excellent to me.
So this Week, I'm sharing the unique designer handmade pens in which the designs are rare and beautiful
I named it as Model 4 D. The thickness of barrel and cap are 16mm. All are Eyedropper Pens with Medium nibs. (Fine nibs can also be fitted)
Feeds are ebonite.

For your identification ,
The Olive ripple Design is 4D1
The Pink Ripple Design Pen is 4D2
The Brown Ripple Design Pen is 4D3
The Black Design Pen is 4D4
The Green Ripple Design Pen is 4D5
The Blue Ripple Design Pen is 4D6.

The Blue Ripple Design Pen is Clipless. We used the new model clip for Pink Ripple design with little grinding on both the sides of the clip to fit properly.
The Bakul ,Clipless pens can also be made
Though the pictures don't do justification, Please have a look at these 6 Designer Pens 4D and tell us which Model you like very much. Hope you enjoy watching.

I've not seen pens like that before. Hand-made is really nice. My choices would be the Brown (first) and then the Green (second)

I like them all! If I had to choose, I'd also go for the Olive or the Pink. But - if I had one, I'd like it clipless. Does that mean it would have to be the blue? I would definitely be interested in purchasing one of these, but that would depend very much on the nibs available.....

    Can a nib be smoothed by psychokinesis?

green and black for me...
Do not let old pens lay around in a drawer, get them working and give them to a new fountain pen user.

I had expected to like the brown most...did. The green surprised me.

I think you have to fiddle with the blue ripple pen in your photo program. It needs to have a color change made so I can see the ripple.

My complements to your father. Very fine work.

Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For that get a 'flexi' or a "flex" nib.

"

 

Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens only; not the users of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.
