I thought I might include some little guys. A Deccan bullet, two Ratnamson SS's, a clipless Guider and two of Guider's tiniest offerings.

Did you buy direct from them? Lots of people say there are communication issues.

  • Current pens: (Fountain pens) Pilot Metropolitan M, Kaweco Sport Classic M, (Dip pens) Speedball Dip Pen Holder with Hiro, Nikko, Zebra Nibs
  • In the Mail: Lamy Al-Star M, Ranga Model 3C with M Jowo nib
  • On the Watch List: Lamy 2000
  • From One Beginner to the Next: get a dip pen and appropriate ink: it's cheap ($10 all included), gets you some flex, can be a great way to work on penmanship, and is a satisfying instrument for intimate journaling at home

I got these a few years ago. I initiated the transaction and had some help wrapping it up.

Thank you, ak2k5.

 

No, not this nib. It is a regular Kanwrite one.

I'm back after such a long time and landed on these wonderful pictures.

@cjabbott, That is a wonderful set, looks beautiful. Are you collecting more Indian pens or Ebonite ones?

@Sagarb, the picture and pen look stunning. @S-K does some amazing work, did you get the band commissioned from him too?

fountainpagan Is that sailboat in the background something you drew/write? Can we get a picture of it? It looks really nice, reminds me of this wonderful graphic novel called Habibi.

Yes, flummoxed, I did it. But it is not my creation: I copied it at sight from a calligraphy book, as a practice exercise.

I will post a photo of it, as soon as I can, ok?

@ flummoxed.

 

Here is the picture you have requested me.

I have to thank you, because I didn't know Habibi. I went browsing for it, and liked what I found. I have ordered it. :)
