Clipper was one of the brands of pens made by Mhatre pens and plastics in Mumbai, India. Mhatre used to manufacture various pens under license e.g. the Watermans 63, Swan etc.

I found this AIR FLOW model this weekend, it is a nice squeeze filler with a stylish clip (Eversharp?)

















Cheers,

Hari,

thank you for another great Indian pen. You should think about posting some of this in Pen History. You are probably the only person I have seen on the net working on collecting and documenting vintage Indian pens and it is very, very appreciated.

You might even think about doing an article - I am sure that the Pennant or WES magazine would be interested in it.

Great stuff!

You should get a Yink, I think.
