HELLO FRIENDS ,

 

Here is a new Indian piston filler .

 

I have hunted it at M/S Venus traders , ABC, Pune , India.

 

A cheap pen costing only 80 INR, (1 UDS approx)

 

 

 1) Barrel , cap and clip : Barrel is injection molded, Cap is made up of  steel , general workmanship is ok.

     Clip is gold plated and having good spring tension. Its a pocket size pen dimensions are similar to Pelikan M200.

     Having an ink window also , just like M200.

 

2) Filling system : Piston filler, mechanism having a good smoothness. Manufacturer have given a good attention .

 

3) Nib and feed : Medium nib , I got surprised , as nib writes more smoother than my Wality pens which are in similar price

     range . Ebonite  feed works well. Writing example is having some Devanagari script by me. 

 

4) Price : Only 80 INR.. ha.. ha.. excellent price for a everyday use pen .  Enjoy ..

 

Conclusion : A great pocket size pen for day to day use.

 

Apologize me for the photos , as taken from my cellphone camera.

 

Regards ,

 

'BAAZ'

What an interesting cap design!

Most Indian piston fill pens (which, taken from memory since I'm too lazy to get up in check includes those of Serwex, Camlin, Chelpark and Wality) use a very, very basic mechanism which works pretty well, but not as well as, say TWSBIs mechanism. Which type is used on that one?

Filling mechanism is somewhat similar to Chelpark Moti pen.

Hari,
Is your reply in marathi? Translation please :)

Since Baaz is from the city where I was raised, I tried my poor Marathi on him. :) Nothing much, I said that the review and the pen both look good and that probably the pen was made the company in the two links posted below.
