Ok, they are very pretty. Black colour would have been great. Maybe you can add some gloss to them somehow?

The trouble with this design, for me, is that they always look nicer en masse,so to speak. A single one on a field like that (see above) just does not cut the same swath as a half dozen does...

Also, I find matte finishes more difficult to judge by picture only. Somehow the shiny aspect of a glossy pen translates better from the screen to my brain, if that makes any sense. You know, the oooh, shiny! reflex that has been mentioned on these fora many many times...

Very pretty pens.


Everyone says poor Mozart dead at only 36. None say poor Mendelson, dead at only 38. His family only allowed him to start at 20, but before, musicians use to come to the Mendelson garden to steal the music of Mendelson and his sister. A good artist also, can still buy prints of his famous Scottish drawings in Scotland.

Absolutely gorgeous pens. I love the bamboo design, feel of ebonite & the fact that these are not eyedropper

I think mpkandan, who is a member here, lists them on Classifieds, too. Or send him a PM. Plus, he is on ebay.

Dear Mr. Obyekt Sir,
 
   Thanks. Yes. Black would be great. This particular customer preferred Bakul finish.
 
Respected Mhguda.
 
   I too personally prefer Polished Finish. This customer preferred Bakul finish this time as he have bunch of polished finish Bamboo pens.
 
Dear Mr. Bo Bo Olson Sir ,Mr. peecee57 Sir, Mr.French Sir,
 
   Thanks for your words.
 
Respected Mesu,

Me too. Matte is a less common finish for FPs generally, and I really like to see it used.

This one speaks by herself.

 

I am very satisfied with her.

 

Here compared to a MB 149 and a Pelikan M-1005 Demonstrator.

 

Cheers,

Where would the 10ml of ink go?? I'd think 3ml would be plenty!

The nib is a MB 149 customised to stub  by Greg Minuskin. Ebonite split feed 14C.

Indeed, nice, it is now in a MB 149 pen doing wonders. The Bamboo has another MB 149 newer 18K nib. Also ground to stub.

 

Cheers,

Hi Mr. Kandan,

I have been interested in your acrylic and bamboo fountain pens for a long time. Is it possible to create a bamboo designed pen out of one of the acrylic colors? Thanks you.
