Recently I came across an acquaintance, an old man who was working as an accountant in a pen shop in Chennai. We soon started chatting on the various Indian pen brands and also of yesteryear.
This is when he said that he is interested to give his pens, which he managed to keep in his possession for some time now, to someone like me who liked pens and invited me to his house. There he handed over a "bag", yes, it was full of pens and pens.
Gratitude ensured that i did not even open the bag at his place, but on reaching home I opened it...there were about 400 pens..yes but about 90% were ball point pens. Only about 40 were vintage Indian fountain pens......I thought I must records these brands here!! and hence this effort.
The first of the pens was an unknown Indian Brand Sabena, which I posted here. Sabena
The second pen I liked was a Vintage Indian Pen- Swan-VIP..This pen has already been reviewed by Hari..here is his link..Swan VIP
So,I am going to merely show-case my pen, which is a different colour...hope you all like it!!
