I understand that the premium ebonite no.6 (pink and black) is not available at the moment. My question is whether it will be available in the future? Another question: since there is mention that the premium ebonite is imported, any idea where that ebonite was manufactured? I presume it is not Indian.

I have what may seem to be a silly question.

What is ebonite? What is it made from?

I have heard that it is a hardened rubber. It this correct?

The reason why I am asking is that I have a serious allergy to latex (a rubber). I have used pens in the past that have a rubber substance on the grip and have had allergic reactions. So, I am much more cautious now.

Yes it is rubber which has been vulcanised. So, you are right. It was used previously in bowling balls and some musical instruments mouthpieces. I am not sure if ebonite can cause complications to you, but I suggest you stay away from ebonites just to be in the safe side

Dear  Sir,

 

  Yes. Ebonite is vulcanised rubber and sulphur. I would suggest you to avoid Ebonite if it causes allergy to you.

   Instead, you can use Acrylic pens.

   Take care.
