Dear FPN Users!

I am writing with fountain pens only 3 months and this is my first review.

I have bought a Ranga acrylic fountain pen from ebay for $49.99, directly from the "rangahandmadepens".

I choose a Schmidt fine nib.

 

My pen is light-green and very bright. It came in a nice handmade box, together with another (added for free) "Oliver Exam" transparent pen, and a plastic device for washing.

 

The Ranga acrylic pen is very beautiful and accurately made. Cap closes with a pair of turns, and rotation of the cap while closing the pen is very smooth. It is convenient for me, to hold the pen.

The Schmidt nib is hard, but extremely smooth, it is a pleasure to write with. (The nib seems to be very close to the nibs which are used in the Faber-Castell pens, not Graf von Faber Castell.)

 

The second transparent pen has words "Oliver 100% Steel B-Co" on its nib. It gives a thiner line, and  the line admits a slight variation of thickness.

 

Surely I can recommend these pens. They are both reliable and beautiful, and I hope to buy one more Ranga pen sometimes...

Best regards, and sorry for (possibly many) mistakes in English language, Olga

Hello Olga,

Congratulations on your first review. :thumbup:

Your new pen is very eye-catching and will probably attract some attention when you take it out.

Enjoy. :) I'm tempted to get one myself; :puddle: it looks like a fun pen.

Have you had any skipping or hard starts?

- Anthony

With thanks to my Mom & Dad; who taught me to run free, but not run wild.

Please pray the Rosary daily. Thank You, St. Jude, for favors granted. :)

Grab life with both arms and give it a bear hug every day! :D

Dear Mister Kandan, thank You again for the nice pen!

And NOS (New Old Stock) is right, I am a woman :)

ParkerDuofold: No, no hard start, no skip, no leak, it writes very good from the box.

My ink (on the picture) is the simple Russian ink called "Raduga" (Rainbow).
