Some pictures of the Maverick, a very inexpensive Piston filler made by an Indian company called Chelpark. Chelpark is primarily an ink manufacturing company.











The nib is GP Stainless steel and the feeder is Ebonite.

Chelpark pens are very hard to come by even here in Mumbai, I recently came across a few of these pens in one of my regular shops here. Chelpark manages to make this nice and sturdy piston filler pen available for around 0.7 USD retail. Other pens in the Chelpark line up are the Moti a piston filler and the Antik an ED filler both of which I have reviewed in the reviews section.

Comments are welcome.

Hi Hari...I like this particular shade of blue of the pen...and I like the maverick engraved on the cap band...good looking pen...when you first reviewed Moti, I thought it was a whim of an ink maker to have a pen in their ink stable...it is really cool that Chelpark has more FP models (3 FP models identified so far!!)...good work, Hari...pitchers look cool...and thanks for bringing them to our notice...I won't ask the other usual question...if I ask, you wont 'spare' me...ha ha ha...

Regards,

Jai

Hi hari
Another great find!

I have a nice selection of the Chelpark inks.
The Black is very nice as is the Green.
I'd compare them,albeit with my limited exposure, to Aurora Black and MB Racing Green.

Thanks for sharing these photos.

Steve

I like Chelpark Royal Blue, Ruby Red and Emerald Green. You must also try Camlin Royal Blue and Crimson Violet ink.
