Fosfor pens is a reputed custom pen maker in India. Manoj Deshmukh (Mr. fosfor) has built up a reputation as a master craftsman and high quality pen maker. I had put my name in his order book for a few pens some time back inspired by fellow FPNersPrithwijit's and Vaibhav's commissions from Fosfor. The package arrived today by courier. I am posting some pictures of the unboxing. Will post detailed reviews later (at least that is the plan)

The package

 

Opened package

Fosfor wooden presentation box and telescopic boxes

Fosfor Rajendran in Woodgrain Ebonite. Polished to a mirrorlike finish

With No.6 size medium Schmidt nib

Islander in Lava Explosion Acrylic

The depth in the material is awesome

Again with a silver colored no.6 medium schmidt nib

I liked the bluer section.

The blue-green Tikona. This pen is larger than I expected. Heavier also.

Now, all three brothers coming together in a huddle

From a lower angle.

The total experience was very pleasant and I will be ordering more from Fosfor in the future. I planning to photograph the pens with better equipment and in better setting later. Will talk about the writing experience as well when posting those pictures.

thanks,

Dinuraj

Congratulations on your new pens!  Love that one that looks like it's got a whole galaxy swirling around in it.  Now if only there were an ink with swirling colors... :)  Looking forward to your writing-experiences.

Dinuraj,

wow! This is one of the rare instances in which it is completely legitimate to write that those pens are galactically spectacular. In a literal sense! Congratulations! I look forward to reading your impressions of each.

Bob
