No idea about all that, but he is on FPN, better ask him directly.

A new Camlin Sharad Dandekar. I'd been curious ever since Hari reviewed one a year or so ago (http://www.fountainp...harad-dandekar/). Then Fountain Pen Revolution offered a few, and I jumped. So far, I'm really impressed. The pen is large in diameter, moderate in length, and has a balance that is curiously just right for my hand. Writing so far is smooth and reliable. This is a pen I could get hooked on.

What Indian pens are you using today?

Me, none yet. But waiting impatiently for a Wality 58SL.

By the way, did you know the Ahab is in fact an improved Camlin SD ?

Dear God, that is a beautiful pen!! I love gold in anything, but red and gold... be still my heart! Thank you for sharing. x :puddle:
If there is righteousness in the heart, There will be beauty in character. If there is beauty in character, There will be harmony in the home. When there is harmony in the home, There will be order in the nation. When there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world. Bhagawan Shri Satya Sai Baba

I'm using a new Camlin SD, dark blue..looks just like the pen pictured above. Having filled it and begun writing, I'm not sure how Noodler's Ahab is an "improved" Camlin. Modified, sure, but what was improved?

My Airmail 71J arrived. It is a good sized eyedropper that holds loads of ink. The plastic is thick and gives the pen a solid feeling. I purchased the pen because I wanted an inexpensive home for a large Everharp semi-flex nib I have had for some time. But with the performance of the Airmail nib, I am loath to mess with the pen. The Airmail nib is a wet, fine with some nice tooth. It is a very good performing pen out of the box. I recommend trying one of these out.

They are extremely easy to dissemble and reassemble. With you thumb on top of the nib and your index finger under the feed, pull.

I have three Wality 71J/71JT on their way from Hari. I'm looking forward to them having heard so many good things about them.

Today I received my three Wality/Airmail 71JT pens from Hari.
I cleaned them, inked them and tested them.
They're nice writers with just a little bit of tooth. I would not mind write larger texts with them at all. The three nibs are very consistent (same width, a Japanese F IMO) and the pens seems to have the same degree of wetness. I am amazed that a low-priced pen can be that good.

They're my first Indian pens (after the Ahab, a mixed breed), but more will follow.

Ah... so *you're* the guy who beat me to the red, green, and blue ones! I had to settle for amber and violet. Just kidding, of course. The colors don't really matter all that much to me. Thanks for the report, which only makes me look forward to mine that much more.

A couple of Deccan Pens: the green and brown mottled is a wonderful pen. A size comparison to the Deccan Masterpiece is below.
