Oliver pens is one of the prominent manufacturer/distributor of pens in India.

The name though is not known to all people.

 

I am in love with my Olivers.

I hereby give shout to all people to show their Oliver Pens

I only have the Oliver Exam.   I understand that the Exam has been used in schools in India?  Fair writing nib.  It came with my Premium Ebonite Ranga eyedropper.  Your Oliver is very attractive :wub:

It's the only Oliver I own.  I would like to add a nicer one to my Indian pen collection.  I just found it on EbayUSA!  Is it a #6 nib??  Hard to tell from the picture.

I have an Oliver Ideal, which was the basis of the eyedropper pen supplied by Nathan with some of the big bottles of ink some years ago, but of course with the standard Oliver nib rather than the flex nib. A simple eyedropper, and the merest tweak was needed to get it to write very nicely.

 

There seems to be a lot of model-sharing between the Indian manufacturers, so I do not even know which models were  actually made by Oliver, or any other firm. But I haven't seen the same pen sold under another name so it might be of their own manufacture.


No, I am not going to list my pens here.

I just placed my order from Ranga for the Color #3 I hope it is as nice as the one in the picture. Do you know what size nib and feed this pen uses and is the feed ebonite?

Well Bad News! Ranga pens just wrote and  said they do not have the Blue Black pen their eBay AD states available in 20 Colors. Matter of Fact they said they only had 7 colors to choose from. All of those colors I do not like. I asked for a refund since their eBay ad is misrepresented. I hope they do the right thing and refund my money immediately. I was so looking forward to getting an Oliver F27 to try out especially when the eBay ad showed the desired color as a option. They also had other colors that were listed that I would of settled for however they did not have those colors either. I hear great things about Ranga and I noticed on the group buy someone received a pen and the color was not same as the image. I think they need to work on their accuracy of advertising their products if this is a issue. Anyway hoping for the best....
