Very nice lighting and exposures on the black pens, hari. There is a lot of shadow detail visible and that's not easy to do with a black pen. That reminds me, I need to work on my lighting technique.

Nice pen, Hari! What's it made of, ebonite?

Hi Dimpu, yes I bought this pen from Deccan at Abids in Hyderabad. You might want to enquire the cost and availability directly from them, I had bought this pen a while back.

Hari

Hi Hari, Do you have a contact info for the Deccan store? Do you have other Deccan Pens, that you can share pictures of? I may be able to purchase through a local friend, but obviously I could benefit from some visuals. Any information you provide will be helpful.

Hello,
I am new to this forum, but have been facinated by the sheer range and quality of Indian pens.
I have just bought a Guider Jumbo and a Green Supreme.
However seeing the Deccan Materpiece I am very keen to acquire on of these as well.
Are you still selling them? If not do you know how I can get one as I am based in the UK.
My thanks in advance for your help.
Kind regards

Welcome to FPN and thanks for your interest in Indian made pens. You will find alot of posts in this photgraphy forum where my colleagues Jai, Ashishwakhlu, tractionavant and me have tried to document various models.

Best,
Hari

I have the same pen from Deccan Pen Stores.... In fact, I have many hand-made pens from Deccan pens.... We buy from them since ages. My grandfather, my father and now I buy from them... the quality is really good... they have fixed all my pens and still many pens are with them as they are fixing.... they had some last pieces left back in 2009 but then in 2014, they came up with some more pieces. When I bought they had only 3... now I dont know... I am attaching other pens along with this post, that I bought from Deccan Pen Stores...The quality is just amazing... when you write, it feels really good.... and I am unable to attach pictures :-/

how to attach pictures? :-/
