And this is how the complete Bakul model looks like... even the acrylic part...

 

This is model 5 with bakul/matt finish fitted with 40 mm ambitious nib... inked with iroshizuku tsukiyo

Hello. Mine shows an order for the flat end. I would like the round end, please. I don't enjoy the looks of flat-ended pens. Thanks :-).

Ambitious 40 mm writes between fine to  medium 

I have a few and they are excellent nibs.

Do you know if the ranga zeal fitted with 40mm nib can later be swapped with the 35mm nib? Will the feed be ok with it? Reading through the other topic on ambitious nibs, sounds like it could. If that is true, I am quite interested to get some 35mm nobs too.

:P what you think of me is none of my business ;)

I would like a Zeal in No. 15 Blue and Yellow, Matte finish, Round ends, Chrome JOWO B nib, Chrome clip, and I would like the cap completely ebonite, with no acrylic finial.

 

I also would like to order at the same time a Model 3C in No. 13 Green and Pale Yellow with a polished finish and chrome clip.  I would like the section made to fit a JOWO nib but I don't need an actual nib as I have a spare one for it.

 

Thanks,

Is there still time to get in line for this? Also, if I want a stub nib, what are my options: from within the nibs offered or nibs I can buy from market for this pen?

Like the bakul finish... Think I'm gonna go for that

Is it possible to have the ebonite parts polished and the acrylic/clear parts in a rough/bakul finish?

Can I use a Schmidt #5 stub or a Bock stub on it? I will buy with standard nib, and then do the replacement myself.

 

What I am trying to know is the nibs I can use to replace the stock offering.

It depends. If you purchase an Eyedropper, you can put in a nib that fits the feed. I have had good success with Ranga. If you get a Schmidt or JOWO, you will need a similar nib unit because Kandan will have threads of a specific dimension cut in the section.

If you take the JoWo #6 nib option you can later replace it with 1.1 stub or 1.5 stub which is available in market
