The very first shot in the thread - is that #12 Rose Red Black Ripple?  

It is Rose/Red or Red Ripple Sir.

I may have to resist this one... (I am saying, may...)

the model 5 Ranga is a nice pen, but a big one!

I don't have very big hands, nonetheless the Ranga bamboo standard size for example, is still a good size for me.

The Ranga 5 viceversa is really on the verge of huge...

 

P1080641-2.jpg

This is my 5c (the rounded end version) which I bought in a previous group buy.

The colour is mottled brown, a very nice earth colour with black irregular patterns.

The finish is polished, and obviously no clip.

I have the CC version, I dare not think the amout of ink this could hold if used as ED...I have not tried, I was afraid to need to use a full bottle!

 

Like most Rangas in ebonite it's relatively light and very well balanced. Better not try to post it unless you want too poke one of your eyes...

I have a jowo B nib fitted to it which is very smooth.

The model 5 however tends to be slightly too big for me (my preferred size in the Rangas is model 3), I cannot use it for long writing sessions and the size of my handwriting tends to be bigger when I use it! I use it for signatures mostly.

Still it's a fascinating pen.

And I am sure appreciated by those with larger hands.

Here it's next to a 3c olive ripple bakul, you can guess the size especially if you compare the caps...

Just so I have this right, I can only buy an Oliver F27 if I also buy one of the Ranga 5 pens, right?

Hi,

 

I have no idea how the "solid matte black (bakul)" color is (the photos on Ebay are not very clear).

 

Please, can someone put a photo with a solid matte black fountain pen?

 

Thanks.
