I have limited experience with ranga pens but if you were stuck between the polished or the bakul finish I would suggest the bakul. Not sure if I was unlucky but my last polished finish pens you can clearly see some of the tooling marks (It is hand made so that is to be expected) and the polish was a bit uneven I assume it would probably less prominent on the bakul/matte finish.

I also need some time to pick a colour, good thing this group buy is open for a while!

 

I've a question: I'm trying to choose between ED w/ Ambitious nib and 3 in one w/ JoWo nib (mainly because of the price difference - I expect I'd mainly use the latter as an eyedropper). How well regulated is the ink flow on the former? Indian EDs tend to behave rather badly when ink is running low.

I find ink flow regulated well but I write fast/have normal (?!) temperature hands. Some of the cheap, mostly plastic Indian eyedropper are problematic but Ranga are a step-up in quality. If you have had problems with other premium Indian eyedropper like ASA then I would say avoid. If you haven't had an Indian eyedropper before you will never know without testing.

 

 

 

P.S I'll be back with my order later when I have decided. :)

Jowo / Schmidt are far better than stock / ambitious due to good feed. You can use jowo / Schmidt as ED and are much well behaved than with stock feed. So I will suggest to go for jowo / Schmidt even though little more expensive.
