First of all,  it's a very nice review indeed..fantastic photography..just one confusion..don't you think Samrat that the line variation should have been more pronounced? Here I am attaching the image from Pendleton Brown where we can see the difference between the horizontal and vertical lines..there you can see the variations even in the fine nib very clearly..

Any way, you are enjoying the nib, that's everything...

Thanks Sagarb...his nibs kind of have less variation in line width...I have two of them and both have very smooth writing with less than spectacular variation....but while I was in touch with him about the tuning he specifically asked whether I need much variation which he is capable of producing...but I rather sticked to the original grinds...two things
1. He produces very small amount of pens..but each pen is very comfortable...you can use them on and on...page after page...still your fingers will not get fatigued
2. The writing is recognisable...when later you encounter the writing from the nib you can recognise it easily...

About the clip - I have seen similar clips in some other Indian brand as well....I cannot exactly remember but most probably pens from Kim & co. There is a possibility that these clips are quite common in his area

Thanks to everyone for taking part in the discussion....the trade mark issue has been resolved...there was no ill intentions of Dr. Sreekumar...like all pen lovers, he was fascinated by this grind and as he himself created the nibs from cheap Indian nibs, he used that term. It never crossed him that this might become an issue....so please support him in buying his pens and ink...though I am requesting him time and again to increase the production, his stand is - it's his love of fountain pens that come through these pens...if he starts mass producing these then the love part will be gone. So till he agrees, we have to salute this die hard romance for fountain pens....
